You know, it always annoys me that people assume that just because I’m single, I must be unhappy or lonely. I’m definitely not unhappy, and I’ve got incredible family members and amazing friends.
Yet, at the same time, there are moments when I understand why people assume that single people are lonely.
It’s those moments when I have to walk back home by myself in the dark.
It’s those moments when I’m going through a really rough time and just want someone to hold me.
It’s those moments when I want to sing someone a special song, or tell them something cute.
It’s those moments when I want someone to sit with me when I’m depressed or apathetic.
I understand what it means to be lonely when I think about the times that most people only know a very small portion of me.
It’s not that I desire to be kissed, or something more. It’s because I want someone to truly know me. I feel like such a stranger to most people, and that they’re strangers to me. I would like at least one human being that knows me so much more deeply.
I finally get how singleness can be lonely, when you don’t have that one person that completely sees you for everything you are.
It just kind of feels like you have to walk through life on your own.
yay people. :/
