I once read online that loneliness added beauty to life and for a moment I started to believe it. There is no beauty in being alone, there is however, a period of time in which you get to know yourself. It is hard seeing the friends you were once tethered to leave without a goodbye but being alone allows you to build a foundation for the relationship you share with yourself. I am learning to be there unconditionally for myself, there is enough ridicule and judement from others when you make a mistake, I see no point in exiling the person I was from the person I want to be. Loneliness doesn't add beauty to life, it simply opens up your eyes so that you can see the beauty that already exists much clearer.
