Until you get comfortable with being Alone, you never know if you choosing out of Love or Loneliness.
~ Mandy Hale
Don’t we all feel alone most of the times? Don’t we all feel the urge to have someone by our side who supports us in every possible way? Don’t we all feel to have someone who cares about us, listens to us when we are in pain? Celebrates with us in our joy. Loves us the way we love them. Yes, most of us require someone like that in our life.
But do you think that you just require them for filling up your loneliness or do you genuinely love them? The answer to this question is often unanswered or ignored. People get confused easily. They do not understand the reason behind their attraction towards a person and often tend to call it Love. They feel happy that they are no more alone in life, and that they have someone beside them to take care of them. But do you genuinely love the other person?
The answer to this question is found when you start spending some time alone. It is when you realise what kind of a person you are. It is when you realise what is good and bad for you. It is when you realise what can you give to a person who is ready to give their life to you. It is when you realise your strengths and weaknesses. Your emotions, your mind, your heart, your needs, your view of love, your potential to keep up a relationship, your idea of a perfect partner. This is the time when you start getting comfortable with yourself. Introspection leads you to love yourself. And when you start loving yourself, you stop feeling lonely. It is when you stop feeling lonely, the darkness that had surrounded you starts filling you up with light and then you start having a clear idea of love. And this is when your love starts flourishes. So, it’s better to be alone than with someone for your loneliness.
