Get Comfortable with Being Alone
Jan 09, 2020
Love when you're ready, not when you're lonely.
We all have that friend who's in that unhealthy relationship, and we all know they're only in that situation because they're afraid to be alone. Some of us may even be that friend.
When we think about what feels good NOW vs. what is in our best interest in the long run, instant gratification can be quite the opponent to defeat. Mr.Right might have to take a back seat to Mr. Right-Now, but in the long run, this can be damaging.
It's just like food; fasts foods are convenient, taste great, and address our needs immediately. Rushing into relationships with people can have the same effect, and can be just as addictive.
We learn a lot about ourselves when we are alone, but for some, the thought of being alone is so scary, that they're willing to compromise their own well-being to avoid it. The issue there is that loneliness can't be addressed by having other people around, loneliness is a mindset and needs to be dealt with from within.
Spend some time with yourself, and put your happiness first, once you get things under control in your own departments, you'll be better equipped to share your love with someone else.
The most important relationship we have is with ourselves; it deserves the most attention and the most effort. Don't pour yourself into someone else thinking it's going to fill a void inside you, because it won't.
