For many of you, the thought of being alone makes you extremely uncomfortable. You’ve decided it’s better to have a piece of someone, than to have no one at all. The problem with this reasoning; you’re selling yourself short. The feeling of loneliness has pushed a lot of people into the arms of the wrong person and keeps them there. Being by yourself causes you to have to face yourself. When you have yet to truly learn and embrace who you are, being alone is like spending time with a stranger and that can be scary. Self-evaluation is a difficult process for a lot of people and they would much rather find a way to distract themselves from it.
