Learning to be an Individual

Growing up usually implies having to learn to make it on our own, whether it is something we want or we can not stand the thought of. Many of us who are stuck in High School, moving on to College still do not know how to handle being alone.

I am someone who relies on the people around me a lot more than what might be healthy. Human beings are naturally pack-animals, constantly wanting to be in a group. But sometimes we just have to embrace the fact that being alone is also a growing experience, one where you might learn new things about yourself as well as getting a new perspective of life and the people around you.

Do not get me wrong. This is not when I tell you to lock yourself in your room and never come out because you happened to have found yourself in a closet. No. Not at all.

Life has a way of being monotonous. It gets under your skin. You have to change things from time to time. Whether that is because you have to or because you want to. You will be happy no matter what, just keep your perspective and look at life through different lenses to find the right one. The one for you.
