SOLITUDE

Sometimes its hard to do the right thing, especially when the right thing consists of taking the time to conquer your inner demons. You must learn to truly love yourself first, because its the most important relationship there is!





"Later that day, I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But, the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous." -Carrie Bradshaw, 'Sex and The City'





"Living alone, I’ve come to realize all those years spent with others were spent living an unauthentic life. Its taken me a long time to recognize who I am and to admire and value that person. I’m not going to give her up now—not for anyone, not ever again—because she’s a wonderful, very real person worth hanging onto at all costs." – Cynthia Meier




"To dare to live alone is the rarest courage; since there are many who had rather meet their bitterest enemy in the field, than their own hearts in their closet." - Charles Caleb Colton

There is a loneliness in this world so great 
that you can see it in the slow movement of 
the hands of a clock. 

People so tired 
mutilated;
Either by love or no love. 

People just are not good to each other 
one-on-one. 

The rich are not good to the rich
The poor are not good to the poor. 

We are afraid. 

Our educational system tells us 
that we can all be 
big-ass winners. 

It hasn't told us 
about the gutters 
or the suicides. 

Or the terror of one person 
aching in one place 
alone 

Untouched 
Unspoken to 

Watering a plant.

- Charles Bukowski (Love is a Dog From Hell: Poems, 1974-1977)


"Living alone, though it may not be the state you ultimately desire for yourself, affords an unparallel opportunity to know yourself, to be yourself, and to develop yourself as a unique and interesting individual." - Phyllis Hobe



Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. -Veronica A. Shoffstall
