And they are gone
Being alone is nothing to fear – my strong self acceptance blossomed from being by myself and always feeling excluded.
Being alone has matured my emotional self-sufficiency, and now I love it. The more I’ve experienced and explored my own feelings of loneliness and uncertainty, the more I’ve realized how necessary these feelings are. It’s good for us to spend time exploring by ourselves. It gives us an opportunity to discover who we really are and what life is all about.
It is always better to learn to stand on your own two legs, rather than have someone carry you around your whole life. And once you are self-sufficient, then relying on someone else from time to time is an act of strength, not weakness – I don’t like to ask for help, so when I do it says a lot.
I have at times become codependent. When actions and thoughts revolve around another person to the complete disregard of my own individuality, that was codependency.
This relationship trait was viciously harmful, and one I will never repeat.
A healthy relationship never limits you… it doesn’t restrict you… it doesn’t try to change you… it doesn’t entitle you, or anyone, to anything.
Be alone and be at peace.
