How To Be Alone
From the desk of AC2, Sparker.
I think it's something we can all use a lesson on. As kids we're almost always surrounded- family, friends and classmates at school, after-school activities; we seem to have to constantly debunk the "it's horrible to be an only child" myth (we Aquatic Cousins are both only children- take that how you will.) As we move into a adulthood I think we sometimes fear being alone the way we used to fear the monster in the closet and we find ourselves in the trap of pulling on the security blanket of an old relationship repeatedly, just to keep the monster away.
Spend a little time with yourself instead and the monster begins to fade.
