By definition, ALONE means “to be isolated, without others or anything else.” That’s not what I’m referring to. You’d have to live on an island to be that alone. We have friends and family. We have careers and hobbies. But what about a great connection with someone you love? What about someone you want to walk through this life with? What about someone who honestly sees you and thinks you are precious? What about someone who encourages you to be more of who you are? What about someone you can wrap yourself up in after a hard day and feel whole again?
It’s hard to be alone. It’s easier to compromise on the dream and settle for someone who can give you pieces of a great connection. It’s as if we think something is better than nothing. That might be true when it comes to clothing but when it comes to spending the rest of your life with someone, think again. You have to believe you are worth the dream, otherwise you will find yourself in a relationship…but still alone.
