I've always been a slightly introverted person.
Quiet on the outside, busy on the inside.
I've also felt that comfort in aloneness equals comfort in your own skin… although last year, after the fallout from losing my oldest friend, I found myself feeling increasingly lonely and disconnected from those around me.
This humble little poem has given me a profound reminder that while it's important to value the connections we have with one another there's no need to fear the spaces of solitude in between.
"But lonely is a freedom that breathes easy and weightless
and lonely is healing if you make it" ~ Tanya Davis
