I have wonderful friends and family and an abundance of love between us all. In addition to that, I find there is no one whose company I enjoy more than my own. I’ve also had three, long, wonderful romantic relationships in which I thrived. I know that I could have that again if I so desired, but after 10 years of living alone (and never feeling lonely), I cannot bring myself to want more than what I’ve currently got.
I’m having to of my oldest and best friends over this evening. I met the one in 1998! These two women are family and would do/have done anything for me. And yet, giving up my solitude for one evening of fun and love with them is still a sacrifice. It will require reigning in my focus, paying attention, ignoring more of myself than normal – all things in which I’m adept at. It will be rewarding and worthwhile, enriching for all, and it will warm my heart… but it’s still a sacrifice intentionally made by Me, Myself and I.
“I will only have you if you are sweeter than my solitude.”
Beautifully put! Upon finding this – I wish the entire world could do the same. The puzzle is, each person has to find it on their own!
Also, great quote.
