Are you a Stranger to Yourself?

The world resembles a quick moving play and In this fast moving world we are set out on an adventure where we meet new people everyday. We get connected to them and life continues blazing by ordinarily like a film. Yet, over the long haul, what we don’t understand is that we start to become a stranger to ourselves.

Too keep moving, it is important to know where we stand. We always talk about how we will go on solo trips around the world, but it really does not happen. Because maybe we feel embarrassed. Why do we feel ashamed when we are alone?

Even if we see someone walking down somewhere alone, Our first thought is, “Look she is going alone, Man doesn’t she looks sad?” Even when someone asks us that do we go to movies alone, our instant reply is “NO! I have friends you know”.  This is what we are becoming, Our way of thinking has flourished like that.

After we find disappointments in friendships and things go under the brigde, we realize how necessary it is to embrace ourselves. We begin to understand our importance. Solitude is for somebody who really prefer to spend time alone and do things like reading a book, watching a movie, watering the plants or even just drinking coffee alone. Solitude gives us time to explore new ideas and accept our insecurities.

We do not talk about the things that bother us because there is a fear of judgement that makes us quiet. We never say, We can be our own friend. Not every person feel comfortable being alone in their own company. Some people need companionship constantly. However to understand somebody else, you have to make sense of yourself first.

Achieving truthful gestures improve our ability to respect other people’s space. Because we become all the more tolerating and deepen our thinking.

There is a quote by Rainer Maria Rilke, “But your solitude will be a support and a home for you, even in the midst of very unfamiliar circumstances, and from it you will find all your paths”.
