I learned to appreciate my own company. How to be alone and be content with it. How to do things by myself without waiting for someone who’s willing to do them with me. If that puts a smile on my face, I should just do it, do everything that makes me happy. Create memories for me, with me. Good memories.
When you get your shit together, it gets lonely. But you have to learn how to be alone without feeling lonely. As long as you show up for yourself, you’re not lonely.
I’m able to do anything and everything by myself, and I’m happy that way. If you want to be a part of it, your presence has to add something to my life. Or else, sorry but you’re not coming with me. Your presence has to be better than my solitude. You’re not competing with another person, you are competing with me. And trust me, she’s hard to beat in that game.
