Do not be ashamed of being a Loner

loner, alone, feelingbuddhaful

This weekend, I had a fabulous time with myself. There was neither chaos nor a monotony pulling me in any direction. Even though there were many other places where I could be, but I did not miss a thing while just ‘being there.’ There is nothing wrong with being a loner sometimes! We meet many people every day; we see many faces during our day; some strangers and some known to us. Every day moves so quickly. We can have so many connections online and on the surface; but if it does not penetrate below the surface, it can leave you with the loneliest feeling, an emptiness. There have been many times when I was in the middle of a gathering full of beautiful faces and each one of them holding secrets in their chests and guarding them with a long sigh.

I ask myself this question sometimes, would I rather be here or somewhere with myself. What is the use of these conversations without any eye contact? What is new in same old routine questions? These surface level interactions drain your energy and leave you tired and lonely. The only difference is you are in the gathering of people feeling the same void.

Do not be ashamed of being a loner or do not laugh at those who are loners. It is all about your choice and your ability to recognize what is real and what is worth it. There is nothing wrong with those evenings that you want to spend doing nothing and just being there for yourself and being yourself. Your time is the most precious treasure, spend it wisely ✨✨

Love and Sunshine. Feel Buddhaful ✌️
