Until you truly love yourself alone, you will never be able to truly love someone else without needing them to fill your heart for you.
I know that coming home only to the sound of your own thoughts is defeating. You can literally “hear” the silence of your own home. No one is there to ask you about your day. I never realized how much I cherished a single hug at the end of each day until I didn’t get one.
What I want you to know, is that you will be okay. You will be stronger than you were before. You will love yourself on your own terms. And you will appreciate your silence.
No, it will not be easy. It will be worth it. Living alone is the most freeing and healing experience you can have. Scream, cry, laugh, dance, and be downright weird with yourself! Just because you are alone does not mean you are not living. You have chosen to live this life for you.
I will start looking forward to coming home at the end of the day, cooking myself dinner, pouring myself a glass of wine, and making myself laugh in my one bedroom apartment, because I know that waiting for someone who deserves my love is worth every second of being alone.
