Having a social life is great, don't get me wrong, but there's a point in life where you need to realize it's ok to spend time alone.
When you're younger, life is all about being popular and having friends; if you spend a Friday night in watching movies, you were a loser. I always thought, why can't I just spend tonight with me? Why is that looked down on?
As I grow and society has certainly changed, this is much more acceptable. How many people do you know spending their night with their bestie Netflix or just being independent and doing something on their own? It's so much more common.
I don't suggest becoming a hermit and losing touch with everyone you know, but if you're somebody living a busy life with plans on plans, give yourself a night to spend with you. You'll find it relaxing.
I cherish my alone time and sometimes prefer it to being out. I have a pretty good time with myself, not bragging. This time keeps me sane, let's me do whatever I wanna do, on my time. It's awesome.
It's nice to not have your phone buzzing every few minutes too. Back away from social media, let a few texts go, disconnect from the world and have your time. You deserve it!
Unwind and recharge with this time for yourself. Learn something about yourself or turn off your mind altogether. Being alone is a perfectly normal thing and no one should be judged for it.
We don't like those judges here, be yourself with no worries!
