Recently I have come to the realization that I don’t have many friends, and that’s okay. I found that I don’t have the time right now to nurture so many different relationships at once. Jobs, immediate family members, pets, my spiritual and religious beliefs, and myself are my top priorities in life. Taking care of myself and establishing a relationship with myself is the most important thing to me. If I don’t take time to love myself, I won’t ever grow into the person I want to be. Then, when I do find myself taking on more friendships in the future, I want to be able to give those people 100% of the real me and the not the me I want to eventually become. I’m taking this time to enjoy my own company and become the best version of myself I can be, and that’s okay.
“I have to be alone very often. I’d be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That’s how I refuel.” – Audrey Hepburn
