I’d Rather Be Alone

I always said I’d rather be lonely alone, than lonely with someone else.

For years, I was so lonely with him, I did everything I could to stay busy so I wouldn’t notice. Finally, two years ago, I walked away, and faced that loneliness.

Now, I realize I actually like being alone. And if I ever find I’m lonely? The friends I’ve made since I stopped being lonely with him make me feel less alone than I ever have.
