Used to being alone…

“At fifteen life had taught me undeniably that surrender, in its place, was as honorable as resistance, especially if one had no choice.”–Maya Angelou


From A Friend Request by CL Gillmore…

“This concept of “aloneness” was hard for me to understand. I wanted to be alone. I was used to being alone. I loved my apartment and the independence it afforded me yet there were many nights and times that I felt afraid and alone…isolated. I wanted to be with someone, to talk with someone, a friend, a lover maybe. But I purposely chose to be alone. Even when I was with people, I felt alone. I felt alone in a crowd. How could that be? I knew all of this must relate in some way or another to my childhood, my family. But there was no family. The concept of family ended when my dad died. As hard as I tried, I couldn’t make sense of it and I wasn’t comfortable talking with anyone about how I felt. Talking about my feelings. So I sucked it up and continued on with my life. My life alone. What else was there to do?”
