"...Lonely is a freedom that breathes easy and weightless...and lonely is healing if you make it..."
If you ever feel alone or lonely (who doesn't?), this is a great video to watch! One of my classmates shared this visual poem with the rest of the class recently. It's about being alone or lonely and how to enjoy your own company and not see loneliness as a bad thing, but something you can even like. It's a beautiful poem I thought was worth sharing on here as well. The poet/singer/songwriter, Tanya Davis, has some great ideas about things you can do alone and a different perspective that I hope you find uplifting...
I can't say I've ever gone to the movies alone, but I've always wanted to try it! I mean, why not? You can watch movies alone at home and a movie theatre is not exactly meant for conversation. One of my favourite things to do is go for a walk in the rain. You can go with someone and that's great too. But it's nice to be alone with your thoughts sometimes. What are some things that you like to do when alone?
