No matter our journey, what connects us is this—the idea that no matter who we are, where we are, or what’s going on in our lives—we are not alone.
Be single! Spend time alone, get to know yourself, become confident in your own skin, take care of yourself for once and kick ass in your own life.
In 2018, I hope you learn how to be alone. Better yet, I hope you learn to love being alone. There is a big difference between alone and lonely, and I hope you find that being alone is a brilliant opportunity to grow and do things that you found you could never do in a relationship.
The strange and beautiful thing about the human condition is that everyone needs someone, and there’s someone out there who is looking for someone just like you.
Be alone until you find someone who talks about you and who talks you up to their friends, or family, or coworkers, or the homeless dude on the street corner – literally anyone. Be alone until you find someone who is proud as hell to show you off.
Traveling alone scared me, but it also allowed me the opportunity to discover something that I always had inside of me.
We spend so much time getting to know the people around us that we forget to know ourselves.
You do not have to be with someone who does not make your heart feel held. Don’t stick by someone who does not stick by you in the same way. Don’t give all your wildfire and your light to someone who does not see beauty in it. Don’t give your everything to someone who gives you nothing.
Don’t settle with a guy who treats you like you’re an option, one of many other options to chose from. Don’t settle with a guy who can’t remember the little, but important things that make you who you are.
You’re picky about who you date. Your ability to set standards stems from your ability to be alone when you refuse to lower them.
