I dislike the negative stigma of doing things by yourself. What is the big deal?

Recently I have had friends and colleagues make comments about how they ‘simply cannot’ do things by themselves. They have stated feelings of being awkward or embarrassed when entering an establishment alone, or even just being seen to be by themselves at an event.

Sometimes the best company is your own. I know that sounds awfully big headed or pompous but it’s true. Sometimes what you need is only granted by your own self, whether that be through your own thoughts, actions or solutions.

I am a big believer in making your own happiness, in fulfilling your own wishes, and being true to yourself. Doing things as an individual helps to build up your self confidence; and your foundation of who you are. Being alone gives you head room to think freely, to live honestly and to treat yourself right.

Some things from recent days:-

  • Winter has totally dried out my skin and I have itchy patches of rash on my body. I am so frustrated by it!
  • I ¬†caught up with Gotham season 2 and started watching Daredevil.
  • My whole work team got ill and we took turns having days off. We have all made a full recovery now.
  • I am craving some good quality sushi (take me back to Japan please!)
  • My nose is very sensitive to strong smells and I will cough and splutter when I encounter them.
  • I started taking driving lessons! It is something I have always wanted to do but never had time to in my student days.
  • Soup is not a viable option for my work lunches, it leaves me so hungry by the end of my shift…
  • I can now play a musical instrument! It used to be one of my biggest regrets that I did not learn one when I was younger so I am happy that I have changed that.

I am feeling thoughtful tonight. Night time is a time for thoughts to swirl, for ideas to develop and for feelings to flourish.

By morning these deep thoughts have disappeared and all is refreshed and new. Night is the period of time for deep emotions to be manifested, for the truth to rise up out of our souls. Night time is more honest than the day, barriers are taken down and masks are removed.
