If you cannot find a friend who is good, wise, and loving, walk alone, like a king who has renounced his kingdom, or an elephant roaming at will in the forest. –Buddha

Let the world in and sooner or later people will see the oceans pouring out of you. You'll walk down the street and someone will mistake you for the sky. You are beautiful because you let yourself feel, and that is a brave thing indeed. Treasure the company of being alone. Think of solitude as another friend for you to hold hands with in the dark. You have clipped wings and scars from when people told you that you were too young and too human and too weak to try to scale the troposphere with your eyes closed, but you were born from the earth and you were born from a wave of your mother's love and you will end up in a horizon somewhere between the two.
                 A woman sitting by herself is not waiting 
   FoR You.





The power to bring me out of solitude – or to push me back into it – had never belonged to another person. It was mine and only mine.


 

"A person has to be too much selfish to fulfill own wish of being surrounded by many people often,
else s/he feels suffocated due to hatred or hidden jealousy from the most public around her/him."

~Anuj Somany

I finally figured out that I’m solitary by nature, but at the same time I know so many people; so many people think they own a piece of me. They shift and move under my skin, like a parade of memories that simply won’t go away. It doesn’t matter where I am, or how alone—I always have such a crowded head.

                          —Charles de Lint

Be alone. Eat alone, take yourself on dates, sleep alone. In the midst of this you will learn about yourself. You will grow, you will figure out what inspires you, you will curate your own dreams, your own beliefs, your own stunning clarity, and when you do meet the person who makes your cells dance, you will be sure of it, because you are sure of yourself. Wait for it. Please, I urge you to wait for it, to fight for it, to make an effort for it if you have already found it, because it is the most beautiful thing your heart will experience.

                          —Bianca Sparacino

” 

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't because I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart I might not make it. It's easier to be alone. — Debora Cahn

Solitude, still with me is only you.
My once peaceful solitude has become insufferable loneliness.
