From Being With Others to Learning How to Be Happy Being by Myself
What would I consider a comfort zone? Where do I start? I think I’m going to talk about a challenge I’m currently working through. My biggest challenge is being by myself for the first time in my life—and I mean really being by myself. I’m not lonely and I’m not scared. I’m not sad either, but I think that it’s this overwhelming feeling that for the first time I’m truly independent and often spend a lot of time alone.
My mom passed away in 2012, and talking to her every day or so, sometimes only once a week, is no longer a part of my routine.
