Loner

Have I been a loner all along?

Why does being a loner feel so good? Am I going through a phase in life? Dining alone and watching people soothes me. Am I the only one who enjoys dining alone? Is this depressive? I’m not sad. Maybe I’m just tired of wearing a mask around people 24/7. Is this truly introversion or is the devil trying to isolate me? Enjoying a quiet evening alone with my thoughts in a bathtub full of bubbles with wine in hand is goals, right? Having circles of friends and loved ones that I adore, but not wanting to be bothered. Is that healthy? In a world where everything is so loud, peace and quiet is welcomed. My son is a lot like me. Am I affecting him negatively? I was sheltered as a kid. Would I have been this way if I wasn’t sheltered? Are you born a loner? Should I work on being a better person? Am I now embracing a part of me that I thought was weird?

Who knows…

What I do know is (as I sit smiling alone at a table in Panera Bread)…

I’m happy at this moment in time.
