Finding your strength is not an easy task. Most people feel so lost and weak that they just want to give up. One thing I learned is that it is okay to feel alone.
It is okay to feel like you are all you have Because, in the end, you will always have your own back even when no one else does. Your true friends will understand that you need your space. And they will understand that nobody wants to talk about things right away.
People need time to go over things that have happened to them. They need time to breathe and to think. No one can do that if someone is trying to force something out of them or better yet, shove thoughts down their throat. True friends understand that you need time.
True friends do not have to know every single thing that is going on in your life at that moment. At the end of the day, they if you needed them, you would come to them for anything. Just because you do not tell your best friend what is currently going on, does not make you a terrible friend.
A true friend prays for your success in all the things you do. They do not try to tear you down because of your achievements. They do not get at you for trying to figure your life out. They do not get upset at you because you are not in the mood to hang out every day and all day.They are understanding od this because, at times, they too feel that it is okay to be alone.
It is okay to be off of social media for awhile and find yourself. It is okay to want to do things that better you as an individual. It is okay to focus on yourself. And it is okay to want to be alone.
At the end of the day, the people who really care for you will be there when you need them the most. They understand that life is not easy. People go through shit and do not want to talk about it immediately. You should not have to feel like your life is an open book. Somethings are better left unsaid. And some things easier to think about when you are alone.
I have been that person that complained about feeling so alone, and I always thought to be alone, was terrifying. But, it was not until recently, that I had to find strength in myself to realize, being alone helped build a stronger me.
But, even when you feel alone, just know you are not alone. There are so many people who are willing to be there for you. You may feel like it is the end of the world but in the end, this is your world.
Do the things you were scared of doing. Go out for a position that you never thought possible to obtain. Go on a dream vacation. Go after the person you were scared to be with. Apply to your dream college, or even grad school. Do not look back on the things that made you find yourself. And lastly, never let anyone hold you back.
Because at the end of the day, if you are alone... then you have no one to hold you back.
