The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: Alone…Not Lonely
Quote of the Day:
“Some birds aren’t meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright.” ~Stephen King
The Single Woman Says:
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the word “alone” and how it seems to bring with it such negative connotations. I decided it might be a good idea to look this word up, since so many people seem to have such a problem with being “alone”…why not get to the bottom of what’s so dreaded about this little five letter word?!
The first definition:
Alone – separate, apart, or isolated from others
But then…look closely at the second definition:
Alone – unique; unequaled; unexcelled
Think about that. So many people are so terrified to be ALONE, they stay trapped in a loveless marriage or a miserable relationship for months and even years on end…and as it turns out, ALONE means unique, unequaled, and unexcelled. Or in other words: Unparalleled. Unrepeatable. Unable to be imitated or duplicated. FABULOUSLY ORIGINAL.
So before you willingly allow yourself to be locked in a cage that was never meant for you out of desperation to be a party of TWO, take a moment to reconsider your options. You can dye your feathers or hide your feathers or even pluck them out…or you can proudly, boldly show the world what you’re ABOUT. A person who doesn’t confuse alone with lonely…a person who doesn’t shy away from solitude…a person who isn’t afraid to break away from the pack to bravely blaze their own track.
At the end of the day, you can look at “One” as the loneliest number if you choose…but I look at “One” as the only number that doesn’t know how to lose.
