It took me a few years, but I have finally come to the realization that I am happy being alone. I have a close companion that lives in another state, but I have gladly reached the point of not needing another person in my life to make me feel complete or whole. I am grateful for this fact because it truly is harmful to rely on another person for fulfillment or happiness out of life – companions should only enhance not be the source of happiness! So many times, I have lost my temporary happiness due to it being hinged on a person or object, and instead I now have tapped into an inner joy that does not get dimmed by disappointment or hurt from others. I hope that this blog post is helpful to someone!
