Be alone

Not mine. Took it from a friend's wall on FB, she shared it from another friend of her. Author at the bottom of the post.

Being alone is not scary, or bad, or a curse, or any other bullshit thing that people make it out to be. Being alone is also not lonely, unless you make it lonely.

Being alone is better than settling for a bunch of shitty dates that make you feel horrible about yourself or waking up next to some dude who thinks your name is Whitney when it's not even close. Being alone is the time you have to get comfortable with yourself and that time is so important.

People get so stressed and worked up about being alone when there is no reason for it at all because being alone is as good or as bad as you make it.

Be alone until you find someone who doesn't just say they will show up but actually shows up and shows up excited to see you. Be alone until you find someone who doesn't make endless excuses and actually wants to spend time with you doing the things you want to do.

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 because anything less than that is bullshit.

Be alone until you find someone who can't wait to see you but not in an overbearing pushy, controlling manner but in an "I care about you" manner because yes, there is a difference between the two. And no, being with someone who controls you is not cool.

Be alone until you find someone you actually want to spend your free time with not someone you're convincing yourself you like or worse – someone you have to convince to like you. Someone whose attention you have to beg for is not someone who is worth your time. If someone likes you, you will know otherwise it's time to let them go and focus more on yourself.

Be alone until you find someone who misses you when you're not around, not someone who forgets you exist on the weekends unless they're drunk and lonely. Be alone until you find someone who actually gives a shit about the way you feel. Not someone who says "oh well, you'll forgive me later" or just expects you to get over it. Be alone until you find someone who doesn't ghost you or leave you hanging more often than not.

Be alone until you find someone who is proud of you, who inspires you, who wants you to be better and wants to help you get there. Be alone until you find someone who erases your insecurities and makes you feel good in your own skin. Be alone until you find someone who puts you first and makes you feel like a priority because you don't have time to be an option.

Be alone until you find someone who actually gives a shit about you. So many people settle for mediocre relationships with lame ass people – don't be one of those people. Love is the one thing you should never, ever settle for.

Until then – be alone. You will thank yourself for doing so.

It's ok

This is a prayer/Meditation I found stumbling upon, and loved it so much I decided to share it. It sums up what I've come to understand in my 30's.

It's okay that I don't know where I am going
it's okay if I don't know where I came from
it's okay if I don't know where I am
it's okay that false thoughts linger in my mind and that I cannot always rise above them or win a fight
it's okay that I am human
it's okay to feel fear
it's okay to feel angry
it's okay to feel tired
it's okay to feel sad
it's okay to feel despair
it's okay to lose myself
it's okay to fall
it's okay to lose my mind
it's okay to lose touch with the ground
it's okay to doubt my existence
it's okay to feel imperfect
it's okay to feel weak
it's okay to feel shame
it's okay to feel guilt
it's okay to feel stuck in pain
it's okay to feel suffering
even when I choose dark, light breathes through me, truth holds me together
prayer speaks through my heart, I am still a child of earth
I am a free soul
I am never standing still
My soul moves forward
I don't need to understand love
Love finds me, comes out of me, love is faith, faith is hope, hope is light, light fills me into every atom of my being
light is everything
I rise above all dark matter and of every event in my human life
I am not my failures, I am not my mistakes, I am not my feelings or my thoughts
I am not dark, I am not right or wrong
Light will not elude me
Light will not elude life
Light will not elude eternity
Light will not elude life
I am rooted and intertwined with all life, all life's cycles, all complex matters, all divine wisdom
I am a being of light
May I slowly begin to detach myself from self-hatred
May I slowly begin to detach myself from self-destructiveness
May I slowly begin to detach myself from false thoughts
May I slowly begin to detach myself from defining myself out of lies
May I slowly begin to be gentle and kind with myself as I always have to those around me with ease
May I slowly begin to detach myself from my old failures
May I slowly begin to detach myself from my old beliefs
May I slowly begin to detach myself from everything that has ever hurt me in my whole life
Light does not define me by my thoughts, by my pains or by my failures
Light vibrates unconditionally
Love is not conditional
Light gives itself to me
Light breathes through me
Light never leaves
Light does not hold me responsible
Light does not judge me
May I slowly begin to detach myself from self-punishment and self-hurt
May I slowly learn forgiveness
May I not define myself out of things that happen or that happened to me
May I be open to heal
May I truly want my own healing
May I truly want truth to alter me
May I truly want truth to set me free
May I hope, May I believe, May I love, May I let my light shine
May I be vibrant and radiant
May I see the light in me not with my eyes but with my heart
May I feel compassion towards myself
May I have the knowledge and wisdom that life always unfolds as it should
May I slowly begin to detach myself from self-doubt
May I slowly begin to embrace myself with forgiveness
May I learn through life's lessons
May my soul go where I am supposed to go
May I find in myself courage and strength to rise above all false stories about myself
May I rise
May I keep breathing
May I keep living
May I meet myself
May I be amazed
May I be in love
May I be in light
May I be in freedom
may i want my own healing - sofie jansson - 5th of january 2012
