Scared to be alone

Day in and day out we all see relationship statuses change, one day in a relationship, one day single, back to a relationship.

It’s sad how our generation doesn’t have the ability to be alone.

Maybe you did find someone you truly care about but at the same time take a step back and ask yourself am I just here because I don’t want to be alone?

We all want that hand holding, we all want that person we can depend on to show up when we need them, we all want that dinner partner but in all actuality none of us are willing to go through the struggles and issues of an actual relationship we would rather just run away when things aren’t as fun or they seem like they are getting serious.

In a world full of snapchat stories, Facebook statuses and Instagram photos we’ve all lost the skills of communication and conversation. We’d rather snap for hours, meet up have small talk and go back to our 5 word sentences.

Imagine having a long conversation, imagine asking 20 serious thought-provoking questions on the first date instead of watching a movie and ‘hooking up’, imagine how much quicker you could truly get to know someone compared to following each others lives on social media and “being together” for the sake of having someone.

My question is this, do you truly know your partner and are you willing to learn their baggage and help them unpack or do you just not want to go to the movies alone and they are a stepping stone until something better comes along?

“Before, I used to be afraid of being alone. Now, I’m afraid of having the wrong people as company.”
