Really like this quote. Many people believe that it is worse to be alone. Thus, they tolerate tremendous amount of pain in relationships in order to not feel lonely. The truth is that, it is much better to be alone that being with someone that makes one feel alone in their presence/ ceciliacarroharvey.org
I had two longings and one was fighting the other. I wanted to be loved and I wanted to be alone. - I finally found someone who the only time in my life helped defeat the desire to be alone which was life changing. Then she made a choice that showed that I meant very little to her and now I think the desire to be loved is now forever deafeted and it has taken a huge toll on my soul.
This could be controversial~be confident in yourself and not afraid of being alone and having your own life and not so dependent on another. Sharing a life w/ a companion can bring you much joy, but also much heartache.
I want this. To be so in love with myself that being alone, I am complete. It's not being independent or not having anyone to share love with. It's not about trying to find your other "half" to make you whole. You are already whole. And you don't need to be with anyone to see that. This crazy world makes us think that being alone is so shameful, but when you love yourself enough, when you realize how complete you are alone, then you can find someone to share that love with. <3…
