We can all be happy, and hold her tight so she doesn’t run away again. And, precisely, we do not need anyone to achieve it. We discover how.
Since we are born we have always been taught that the great moments of our life must be shared with friends, family and later with our partner. However, sometimes we don’t realize that by our mere presence we have more than enough to do just about anything we set out to do. This can range from enjoying a movie at the cinema, to going on an adventure a little on a trip thousands of miles away from home.
In fact, this practice is spreading more and more and it is already very common to see all kinds of backpackers who go completely on their own knowing the world without being disturbed by anyone. Still a bit reluctant to live your life more independently? Well, do not worry because through this article we will count all the advantages that this supposes.
And why not alone?
As Aristotle, one of the most important philosophers of Ancient Greece, said: “The” human is a social being by nature. “Therefore, it is completely normal that from time to time we want to socialize with our peers to tell them about our problems and concerns in order to feel better. Or it is simply good to have a good time and thus disconnect a little from the work world that brings us so upside down during the week.
Although we should not abuse this either. It is not good to become a person completely dependent on others since there will be many occasions that we will have no choice but to fend for ourselves. And this is one of the advantages of knowing how to be alone.
Every time a setback and problem appears, you will know how to deal with it due to past experiences and therefore you will be able to put an easy solution to it without absolutely anyone’s help. Do you realize the ‘kick’ of self-esteem and self-confidence that this can suppose? Ultimately, “loneliness” (in the good sense of the word) can be a way to be a little bit happier.
Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable
Another aspect to keep in mind when enjoying the company of oneself is that it is also a great way to get to know ourselves and investigate a little more about our personality. When we are with other people, we inevitably change a little way of being to “adapt” a little more to the group. However, being alone it will not be necessary to do this.
And how is it possible to do this introspection exercise? Surely many of you will ask. Well, very simple, dedicate an afternoon to you, do not meet anyone and go for a run to a point that is a bit far from your most common places.
Once you get to that place, try to be silent with your own thoughts and begin to inquire within yourself. You can ask yourself questions like: “Do I agree with everything I do in my life?” “With the people who surround me?” “And with my work?” “And my partner?” You cannot imagine the amount of answers you can find in this way. Remember that there is no person who knows better than yourself and you will know better than anyone what is best for you.
Travel, experience, and feel!
Now that you know the importance of enjoying the company of yourself from time to time, now it only remains for you to “break” your limits a bit as we have commented throughout old articles. You can start with simple things such as going to the movies alone or going shopping without anyone recommending what to buy. Surely in the long run you will get a “taste” for this practice.
And it is that from here we tell you that you do not need absolutely ANYONE to be happy. Once you get it, you can do more stimulating things like traveling abroad, practicing extreme sports or going to the mountain for a picnic. There is an open world of possibilities completely at your whim and that will surely help you explore limits that you previously considered impossible. So don’t think twice and start traveling, experimenting and feeling. Surely both your mind and your body will thank you.
