First of all, being ALONE is not a disease but an opportunity to learn a lot from life and the world. It doesn’t mean lonely life. it is rightly said that ” Great Minds Think Alone”. Being alone increases our capacity to think clearer and effectively. It means in the absence of any distractions we can do our work in a better way.

If you are alone it doesn’t mean you are alone in this world. We have endless options nowadays that can be used to suppress this feeling. We have several social media, dating apps where we can find a lot of friends. Although I don’t believe much in social media friends, this could provide us with some friends.

I know one of my friend who lives alone and enjoys life very much. He uses a lot of things in his life to enjoy it fully. When I talked to him about how to enjoy while living alone. He told me something I’d like to share here. My friend lives freely without any restriction to his mind and body. He does what he likes, eat what he likes to eat without thinking about calories etc.

His mantra for a happy life is to try to be happy in every situation. Whenever he finds himself alone he calls me and other friends and does a lot of chat and he feels better. So never ever think you are alone in this world. You can always be happy just to find the right way.
