Sometimes, I am sitting in the corner of my room staring to nothingness, completely ignoring the fact that the needles of the clock just ticks second by second and my life is getting shorter millisecond by millisecond. Suddenly, a thought floods the gates of my mind that my life is accompanied by nothing except my thoughts. And instantly, the same mind which was pondering into emptiness is now surrounded by the dark clouds of ‘being lonely’ thoughts. My feet goes out to take a fresh air only to envision the sights of ‘couples’ everywhere. I call up my sister and complains about being lonely and how much I miss her. Ending the call, walking down the street, I see a young couple fighting and accusing each other of breaking hearts. And thats when my mind screamed out a thought ” Thank God ! I am single “. The dark clouds in my mind left and a new ray of relief shone in my mind convincing me that you are already happy- Finding it in others is what bringing the dark cloud of loneliness in the first place.
This forever spreading syndrome of “I am alone” is groping every millenial’s minds today. Such sad words to come out of one’s mouth, right? Ever pondered over the fact that could be opposite. Why do people have to make everything sad? Why living alone is sad? I came across so many people daily, telling that they have everything but still blue because they are lonely. “I am lonely”, “I am alone”, “Nobody to talk to me”, “I am so borred”. Such simple sentences have become the sad reality of everyone today. Nobody wants to be alone. Everybody needs someone to talk to. What is this new world we are living in?
Ever pondered that if we can accept new changes to the society or technology everyday, why not being alone be accepted. People waste so many thoughts and energy on finding happiness and comfort in being with someone, that they forget that happiness is within themselves. C’mon taking up a new hobby is what I would prefer everytime over being with someone, just like this. Writing my own thoughts onto a public diary is much better than debating with a second person of the same thoughts.
A simple thought always alarmed the gates of my mind as to why people craved so much for companionship and why is being alone so tough? Why doesn’t the companionship of their own thoughts excite them ? Diving deep into their soul and finding peace. Why they want to make more friends when the old ones turned out to be snakes? Maybe Hope for a change only to find out they are alone in the end, with or without friends.
My simple perspective is one should stop fulfilling its emotional hunger in other people when you can a build a home in yourself. Be your own friend, own adviser and your own lover. Once you start to do that, everything around you will change and even a small thing can make you happy. Maybe it would a new hobby or a new learning or a new course or just meditating, God knows! Maybe it might restore your faith in God and he might become your constant friend. Stop getting trapped in the prison of “Oh my God ! I am alone *sad winks* ” and start to dwell in ” Oh Wow ! I am alone *happy sighs* ” !!!
And when you do that, watch how many people appreciate that and secretly envies you to be so strong ! 🙂
