I’m pretty happy right now, and excited! Let me explain.
I’ve entered this phase in my life where I’m trying to find myself and learn to live on my own. Not depend on people to have someone to talk to.
I’m the kind of girl who likes their alone time! I love being in my room reading a book, watching a good tv show/anime I’ve been meaning to watch, or just playing a video game. I can get easily overwhelmed by people If I’m around large groups for a lengthy amount of time (anything above 24 hrs I would say is excessive) BUT, the opposite is also true.
If I have too much alone time, I get depressed. My mind is telling me “you’re such a loser you don’t even have friends to hang out with on the weekends!” Evil. I know.
I recently ended a 2 year long relationship that was causing me much more pain than it made me happy. Learning to live without having someone to share your thoughts with has been extremely difficult for me. But it was something that needed to be done.
So here comes the exciting part!!! I have a best friend who lives in Hawaii. We met in Middle school and I’ve known her for more than half of my life! I call her my “soul sister” because no matter how far she is, our friendship never changes. She is a blessing, I swear to god. It makes me feel so grateful to have someone like her in my life. And I genuinely wish for everyone to find someone they can be their true selves with.
Point being, she suggested we do this back & forth journaling like we used to in high school. Across the damn Pacific Ocean!!! Not only will this be super therapeutic, it will also make my days feel less lonely.
