Loneliness.

I used to feel incredibly sad about the fact that I do not have many friends. 

My therapist once asked me “So, what do you do besides work?” 

And I literally had no answer. I was speechless. I told her I attend classes, but when she asked if I had any friends there that I saw outside of class, the answer was no. How often did I see my good friends? Maybe three times a year. Did I ever go out with people other than work colleagues? No. 

I liked being alone, but the stigma against it created a sense of longing and sadness in me. I kept telling myself that it was wrong. That I should be social. I should have friends I interact with on a daily basis.

In a seminar I did with Larry Moss, he said something that really resonated with me. 

"Do you want to be a great actor?" He said. "A great writer? A great anything? Well, it’s a lonely. fucking. job.

I have such a strange relationship with the idea of loneliness. The idea of it makes me more depressed than actually being alone. 

I think it’s okay to be alone as long as you have a good relationship with yourself. As long as you’re a healthy human being and you’re doing what you love to do, then that’s okay. As long as you can make yourself laugh, and be comfortable in the silence of your own mind, then who cares?
