I know happiness is relative but you don’t need a crowd to help you feel good. You don’t need a bunch of people to go to the beach with, or take a sea of selfies to prove how insanely cool you are.
You don’t have to be everyone’s favourite, to be your own person. You don’t have to change who you are, to be accepted by someone you like. You don’t have to do something you detest, just to belong in somewhere.
Having said that, being alone does not mean you’re lonely. It just means you have all the space in the world to be everything that you want. You don’t need a crowd to make you feel welcome, do you?
Drop the façade and the fair weather friends. And the masks that tag along. You really don’t need people who coo only when everything is hunky dory.
If you have a couple of friends who respect you for who you are, flaws and all, who resonate with your thoughts, who help you find your zen, who stick to you no matter what, who lift you up when you’re distraught, then you are sorted. For life. Trust me.
