This video has been floating around the interwebs for the past couple of weeks, and I finally just got around to watching it. As the most ironically attention-seeking introvert you'll ever meet, this really speaks to me. I love being alone, but I fought hard against it for years thinking that it was weird or anti-social or fear-based. But a lot of my best times are by myself - traveling alone, eating alone, wandering alone, exploring alone. Sure, I've been lonely, but I enjoy my company and generally enjoy going solo. So, this is an affirmation of what I once considered freakery, and a lovely affirmation at that.
Here's to the loners. I toast you from afar.
