Last week, my friend rang on me asking what my plan is later on. I told her I need to go to the supermarket to get groceries. She was like ‘really, by yourself?’
Huh? Yes? Why not? I normally will go to the supermarket alone. It’s not like I don’t want anyone to accompany me but I have to go because that is what I always do. So that is nothing pelik if I go alone. Maybe you find it weird when I tell you I can watch movie alone if no one is free to watch with me. I can have my lunch or dinner outside alone if I have too. When you have no choice and you need to do everything on your own at your own precious time, why delay right? Maybe I enjoy being myself. Is that wrong?
It’s extremely a good experience to do daily task alone or you can say independently. One thing sure, you can set everything at your own time without rushing or waiting. When you are alone, you have the leisure to take your time, make choices and think rationally. If you go out for shopping with your friends you tend to get influence from them. You might end up buying unnecessary things because well they bought it too, as in my experience at least. Shopping with friend is a great way to change opinion and they can provide better suggestion, but you are in control of your own cash. Therefore, you have to be independent in making the decision.
I love doing things own my own, that doesn’t mean I have no friend. Being independent doesn’t mean you are lonely. It means that you are capable of taking care of yourself. You have to take care of yourself before anyone else. Many people enjoy and choose being alone.
Are you like me? Well maybe if you are not, here are reasons why you should do things yourself.
It is far better to be alone, than to be in bad company.
There is nothing wrong if you are unable to hang out with your friends. It doesn’t make you a loser. I feel that in some circumstances, I would rather be in my own company. I also agree that sometimes I need to go out and have some fun.
