When I told my friend I’m alone at Starbucks chilling and doing work. They will be worried and asked to make sure if I am alright. For some people, they define being alone as lonely. They though that I am having any emotional breakdown. However, I don’t feel that I am lonely. Actually, I am happy being alone myself doing activities that I like.
I when to google the meaning of lonely and alone (It is not that I don’t know the meaning of it, just to make sure). For, being lonely is an emotion when you are a lack of companionship. On the other hand, being alone means having no one else present, just ownself.
So, why that person feel that being alone is lonely?
For me, I felt that the strongest person on the planet it is people who are alone. I always tell myself, “If you want to be strong, learn how to fight alone.” Doing stuff as a team is must easier and faster. Everyone get to help each other, you also get to learn from one another. But I love to learn and experience stuff in a harder way. (cause I felt that I will be learning more) Most importantly you don’t have to worry about people judging, you can be yourself when you are alone.
Why follow the crowd walking the curve road when the straight road is the better one (at least for myself)?
” Always stand for what is right, even if you are standing alone.”
