Sometimes, you are going to feel alone.
You can share a class with 300 people, be part of a loving church, have a thousand friends on Facebook (that is, if you still use Facebook) and still feel alone.
And there are going to be people who make you feel bad for being alone.
They'll tell you it's not cool to be alone, or that you should be out with friends every night. or worse still, that
But you're not.
Let me tell you my darling,
It's better to be alone than to be among friends that have no purpose.
It's better to be alone than to be out everyday, doing random things with no passion.
It's better to be alone than to be the most popular but still unsure of who you are.
Sometimes it's just better to be alone.
But don't exclude yourself from the world. No, that would be worrying. Go out, please.
I just want you to know, that sometimes, it's okay to be alone.
It's when you're alone that you think.
It's when you're alone that you speak to God.
It's when you're alone that you have monologues inside your head and most importantly, inside your heart.
It's also when you're alone that you remember all your forgotten chores.
And when you're done with being alone
Gather yourself together and throw yourself out there again.
Try something new, meet new people, gather new experiences.
But don't forget Erin,
To return to being alone every once in awhile.
