Being Alone

People are often afraid to face their own

It is because we are social creatures?

It is because we do not know ourselves?

Makes sense

Once you have grown to be comfortable with yourself

The idea of being alone does not scare you anymore

But I am wrong

It is not about being comfortable with yourself

It is about not being afraid of the unknown world

Once you start to recognise the unfamiliar as familiar

Being alone will become a calming thought

Only then people are not afraid to face their own

While being alone
