Alone

Do you like to be alone or do you like to have company?

I think it depends on my mood. Really, I think we can all agree with that. No one likes to feel lonely, but sometimes people do like to be alone. There are a lot of times, at the end of the day, that I just want some down town with myself. I like to unwind and watch Netflix or Youtube videos. Other times, especially when I’m camping with family, I like staying up late and having deep conversations about anything. It just depends on my mood and where I am.

My days are like that too. Some days, I don’t feel like being around people or I just don’t feel like talking much. And other days, ┬áif I’m not around people much, I do end up feeling lonely.

It’s a weird concept when you think about it. I feel like the people we are around can change our moods, and the lack of people in our lives can change our moods too. We rely on human contact to keep us happy, but sometimes we don’t have to. And that’s okay. We spend so much of our time relying on the opinion of others and doing what others want us to do, that we forget to live for ourselves. We need that time alone to remind us who we are and what we want as individuals.
