embracing loneliness

As people, I feel like we often try to avoid feeling lonely. We fill it with requirements, and other people so we never feel “alone”.  After going through my whole emotional transition within my relationship, and working full time, I never really had time to think and heal. I moved into my new apartment on Tuesday and honestly the idea of being alone is scary. But I want to heal. So I’ve decided to embrace the loneliness. Because in reality loneliness is a perception of what you feel you should feel. I used to be alone and not feel lonely, but now I do. And I’m here to tell you that being lonely is part of healing. I told my sister a few months ago, that I view healing as an individual process, so I wanted to give her the space she needed to heal. Now I just have to give myself that space.
