Ode to loneliness
© Eni Turkeshi Photography
I have always respected people that have choosen to lead a lonely life.
And by this i don't mean asocial people , people that find it hard to get in touch with the others of course.
I mean the people that content theirselves and don't need other people just because they don't like being lonely.
Yes , maybe you find it strange , but i have came across a lot of of these people.
I don't like their company.I guess because they make me understand they aren't enjoying mine as well. Or maybe because they need my friendship anyway, because they just can't stand to be alone.
I find it so superficial.
And so desperate.
One should first get enough of his/herself i think.
If you see people , if you get in touch with them just to escape from your loneliness and boredom , you aren't going to do anything good to yourself or the others.
Loneliness should be experienced sometimes.
Loneliness should be perceived.
Loneliness should be enjoyed.
Loneliness offers you the luxury of an intense conversation with your innerself.
This conversation might hurt sometimes.Sometimes it might get your worse.
But at the end of this experience , you won't have anything to escape from.
You'll have signed a total piece with yourself.
And once you have achieved this ; you'd be able to pass quality time with yourself only or with others as well.
You won't experience something in order to escape from something else , you'll really be able or be willing to share what you want with the others.
But in order to reach this , you need to master your loneliness; this very slight line that separates your true preferences from your egoistic fears.
