For the 12th installment of How to Be Alone…we allow ourselves to be!
There are two thoughts here:
1. Don’t look to fix yourself. According to the blog, Zen Habits, you’re already perfect.
Now I have certainly struggled with this message myself. However, I think in the context of being alone, this is an idea to say yes, and to.
Appreciate your solitude, don’t seek to ‘fix’ it. You are already whole. You are already enough.
2. Don’t look to fill all your time so as to avoid yourself. Face your truth.
By allowing yourself to “just be” alone, I bet that your true self comes out. Maybe it’s struggling with those questions that just linger, as Colleen explained, or maybe it’s discovering new interest. Regardless of what occurs, once you allow yourself to just be alone you will have an asset: a new understanding of your life long companion.
So, let yourself be alone and you just might discover your deepest self and that you, this gift to the world, are enough.
