NO. 17

1 isn't the loneliest number

"Meal for one? No problem. Why being by yourself isn't something to be feared."

Yesterday was a bit of a bad day so I decided to cheer myself up by going to my favourite burger restaurant. I had a 2 for 1 voucher and no one to share it with so I thought... what the heck, I'll order two burgers.

The waitress that brought over my burgers said, "I'll just put this one over here for when the other person arrives."

I replied, "Actually, they're both for me."

Later that day, I told someone I was going to the cinema. She presumed I was meeting other people there and was shocked to find out I was going on my own. I asked her, "Haven't you ever been to the cinema on your own before?" Her answer was no.

Okay, so maybe I just managed to make myself sound like a complete loner. (I do have friends... I promise I do... I really do.)

My point is that sometimes it's actually really fun to enjoy your own company. Being by yourself shouldn't be something to be ashamed of. If you're always waiting around for someone to do a certain activity with you, you never get to do everything you want to.
