If there’s one thing good about living alone it’s resilience.

The ability to return to who you are, your very essence, no matter what.

Even though it’s easier dealing with the practical part of life’s adversities when you can count on other people’s help, it’s resilience that helps with the emotional part nobody else can take care of.

It’s what keeps you aware of who you really are. No matter where you are or what you’re dealing with.

Revealing Ourselves

Many of us are very guarded on revealing ourselves to others.

Mostly a combination of self protection and a fear of becoming vulnerable.

But there are a few people to whom the more we reveal the stronger it makes us feel.

They simply don’t judge us and make our issues sound perfectly human when told them.
