2 days back when I was reading the editorial page of times of India I came across this article called ‘Cherish your aloneness. “It basically spoke about how one comes alone in this world and one should learn to live and be happy alone. Two or three definitely makes company but that is just a means of time pass. It is only when you spend time with oneself that you realize who you are and identify your true self.
In life we all go through various phases and situations and at every point we come across new acquaintances and meet new people. Some are there with us since childhood, some become close friends on the way and some others are left behind with time. With a special person we decide to spend our whole lives and some others we just don’t feel like seeing after the first time. In all the above, we tend to build strong emotional bonds with people who at one point in time did not matter to us even a bit. Yet with passing years they become an imperative part of our lives.
The emotions we develop, the feelings we build either make us strong or turn out to be our biggest weakness. It wholly and solely depends on how one can control his/her sentiments and not drift away with the tide. It is very easy to get attached to a person but equally difficult to let go.
Personally I feel being alone most of the time is not the way to go. Every individual needs to be around people. Everyone needs a hand to hold on, an ear to listen, and a shoulder to lean upon. Everyone needs someone to be there by his/her side. But one should realize that one’s life is his/ her own and by emotionally clinging onto someone he/she lets go off that control. It is extremely important for one to have not less than 51% hold on his/her life.
Life is a short and wonderful journey and each one of us have to enjoy it. It is ideal to have company but if not that should not stop one from living life to the fullest because it is the individual who decides whether to cry about not having a companion or cherish one ‘ s aloneness and make the most of it.
