Dear Lonely Ones

To my forever alone people,

Let’s just all take a moment here to acknowledge our loneliness and cry.

Alright, now that we’ve got our ugly crying out of the way, pick yourself back up, pat yourself on the back, and remind yourself that you are one bad ass individual who doesn’t need anyone but yourself. 

Now that we have overcome those two steps, let’s get down to business. Being in college is pretty lonely, if I were being honest. If you don’t have a significant other, and a very small friend group, life can just stall sometimes. Since Valentine’s Day is coming up pretty soon you’ll be able to feel the lonelinessx10. That’s why I’m here to pick up all the pieces or at least try to.

It’s okay to be lonely.

When you are lonely, you have time to think. Although most thinking can be dangerous, it can also help you see the light. You’ll realize so much about yourself and the people around you. If you can realize the value in those thoughts you can see the positive side of it all.

You’ll come to cherish yourself a little bit more. Think of this loneliness as a way to build yourself. I know in today’s society, a lot of people believe that in order to build yourself you need to do it with someone special. I’m here to tell you that’s not true at all. Although it may be nice to have someone there to support you and grow with you, it isn’t needed to help you grow. Grow as an individual and figure out what you like and don’t like. Find out what you love about yourself and what you don’t love. Take this time to find your self-worth so that you will always know your worth with or without a significant other.

Pamper your loneliness. Nurture it and acknowledge it so that in the future you will know exactly how to deal with it. Sometimes all you need to do is encourage your loneliness so you can go on an adventure of self-exploring. Of course, I’m not telling you to be lonely forever and just mope. What I’m saying is don’t ignore it and pretend you’re happy. You can fake it as much as you want but eventually someone, maybe even yourself, will call you out on it.

All in all, loneliness is normal.

If you find yourself feeling a little lonely, take advantage of it to improve something. If you’re feeling a little lonely on Valentine’s day, become your own valentine and pamper yourself. One day the loneliness will end because you did something about it, so be proud of that.

Sincerely,

The loneliness one of all.

Just kidding. I’m pretty content with myself and life right now… I think.
