Respect yourself enough to walk away from anyone who hurts you.
Do not let your loneliness be the reason behind your misery. Let it empower you to become someone you never thought you’d be. Someone who stands alone, someone who doesn’t need validation, someone who doesn’t need noise.
Take the time to be grateful. Spend alone moments in the morning.
As an introvert I was actually pretty worried about constantly having to interact with and rely on strangers. I was anxious about the idea of not always being able to be alone when I needed to be.
it’s not about building up walls,
it’s about not liking anyone enough
to invite them inside for coffee.
A person who loves spending time alone is not a coward or a lonely introvert. That person is indeed the bravest of all.
For the first time, I’m starting to realize that maybe I’m in the wrong place with the wrong people. Maybe everything feels wrong because this is not the right direction, this is not the right road.
Being alive in solitude is where we learn how to love, how to breathe, how to desire, and how to evolve.
Being alone gives you the freedom to think for yourself, to get to know yourself, to make better decisions without external influence, to create your own energy and verve, and to realize what you want and need in life before the time ever comes to get it.
It’s not that introverts don’t want to fall in love; it’s not that introverts don’t want to spend time in the company of someone we admire. It’s just that we enjoy the company of the world more. Our solitude is stunning.
