They say being alone is okay. That we have everything we need within ourselves to feel joy, bliss… we don’t need another person to make us complete.
I’ve always struggled with this. I wasn’t able to see the point of living if you didn’t have someone to share it with. I finally get it. It comes and goes but I’ve felt the peace of being alone with myself. The joy of being in love with myself.
I don’t need to make memories with another person, I just want memories to reflect on. I want experiences that lead me to great journeys of insight. I want to enjoy the pure thrill of watching my grandchildren experiencing life’s obstacles and rewards for the first time.
It would be nice if someone came along to enjoy life with… but I don’t want it if it comes with a price. Distraction from my joy and peace is too great a price to pay ever again.
