4 Reasons Why You Should Never be Afraid to Be Alone

“If you aren’t afraid to be alone, you’ll more than likely have the courage to walk away from relationships that are bad for you.”

– Cherie White –

I won’t kid you. Being alone can sometimes make a person vulnerable. However, being surrounded by negative people makes you just as vulnerable if not more so. Therefore, being alone can be much better than keeping company with spiteful people who only bring you down.

As difficult as it may be, sometimes you must weed out all these ungrateful souls who don’t see your worth to make room for more positive, caring, and loving people to come in.

1. People will let you down at some point. Get rid of anyone who makes you feel bad about yourself and only keep company with those who love and respect you. Keep the people in your life who value your opinions, even when those opinions are strong.

2. Not everyone who smiles at you is in your corner.

3. It’s easier to get rid of people who are toxic.

4. It’s easier to say goodbye to relationships that only hinder growth.

If someone is not treating you like you deserve to be treated, never be afraid to let them go, even if it seems that they’re your only options at the moment.

Remember that we must do things that don’t feel comfortable and that are downright scary for any positive change to happen.

Positive change requires that we take risks!

  1. This is so true and yet very hard. We all desired to be liked and loved. I know I do! And because of that I have made plenty of mistakes in my life whether friendships or romantic relationships. I finally learned I don’t do overly jealous, I don’t do people who are only there for me when it is to their advantage, people that try to hold be back, or are always discouraging. I can’t help but notice some people will be madly in love with someone and tell the world and then two days later breakup with someone and a day later be with SOMEONE else. It is hard to walk away from toxic friendships and relationships but it something we all need to do if we are ever to find happiness.

    In addition, we have to be willing to walk alone if we believe in a cause. Or if we see things occurring regularly in the crowd we run around with. If they are doing bad things, bullying, gossiping, etc we need to be willing to walk our own path and away from them especially when we know they (we) are doing wrong.

    As someone who has been through the marriage/relationship wars and always wanting to be somebody growing up, I vowed a few years ago to never, ever not realize I am important too.

  2. Excellent points Cherie. 👏🏼 I remember hearing Bernice King (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s youngest daughter) speak at a program about 30 years ago, and she mentioned a few of the things in your topic. But what resonated with me after all of this time is her takeaway “I’d rather be by myself and know “whose” I am, than to get lost with others and forget “who” I am.” 🤔

    Girl, you gotta step away, and have some alone time to regroup and evaluate whether certain things or people are worth losing your mind over. 😱 You’ll know when you’re tired of being sick and tired! 🙌🏼 🤜🏼🤛🏼 👍🏼
