Solitude.

Sometimes, people complain about how lonely they feel. Or how alone they are in life, and that they have no one to socialize with or to interact with.Well, yeah I do agree that it kind of sucks at times. When I moved here, I was like any new guy would be. I didn't have friends, I didn't know anyone and I had no social life. I hated it. But the only thing that helped me survive before I made friends, were my TRUE friends. Books, the internet, movies, video games and TV. Yes. My true friends. Things that never leave me ( thank God for that).

In two years time, things got back to normal. I went to school, started making friends from everywhere and I got back to the busy life schedule that I had. Only then, I truly realized the amazing feeling of solitude. Being alone isn't always so bad, I mean only if you know that you're not friendless, but yeah, being alone can be really great.

Firstly, its SO relaxing. Simply lying there on your bed or on the sofa, listening to your favourite music and relaxing your muscles feels awesome. Its like, one of my favourite things to do. I dont know about everyone else, but try it. Just clear your mind once, and lie down, listen to music and just relaaaax. It relieves mental stress, tension and anxiety as well.

Also, reading is one of the few awesome parts of solitude. Im guessing that most people who blog, and read blogs also read novels. Being alone, and reading an awesome novel is a LOT of fun. Especially novels like Harry Potter. I remember before when I read The Deathly Hallows, I used to be SO indulged in it that an actual illustration would play in my head as I'd read the book, and I would be completely isolated from whatever was around me. I wouldn't even be able to hear my parents call me. It was SO intriguing.



And all the other stuff too, surfing the internet and watching all the random and funny videos on Youtube, watching movies, watching TV, doing all of these things alone can sometimes be MUCH more fun rather than doing them with friends. Its because you can do as you please, and you feel relaxed about not having any commitments (this only works if you're on vacation, haha).

Also, praying can really calm your mind. And doing it alone. Asking God for what you want, and praying to Him makes you feel very relaxed as well.

So yeah, being alone isn't as bad as they all say. You just need to embrace what you have and learn to use it for your own good, and it usually turns out to be quite awesome.



So true.
