I’m one of those people who hates being alone 99% of the time. The other night I decided I would just stay home and relax, rather than going out to dinner. I’m not one to turn down dinner but I was tired and sometimes you just need to sit back and relax.
I made pasta for dinner. I put some laundry in because having a clean apartment makes me happy. I did a face mask and started reading a book my mom got me. I just sat on the couch reading and relaxing. I didn’t think about what I was missing at dinner. I appreciated the time I was just spending on something I wanted to do.
I think being in college made me feel like I had to always be doing something or hanging out with other people. In high school, I don’t think I felt this way as much. It is important to spend time alone and focus on yourself or doing something for yourself. I am going to try to incorporate a bit more of that into my life!
Do you prefer being with a group of people or alone? What is your favorite solo activity?
