My insecurities and anxiety made me fear loneliness and not fitting in. My fears blinded me from seeing the constant deluge of people in my life as supportive friends rather than scrutinizers of my every move. Eventually, I did things that people expected from me. As a follower, I was losing a mind of my own. It wasn’t until one rainy day when I decided to go on a walk. Being by myself in the torrential rain allowed me to think, ponder, question, laugh, and cry. The period of enlightenment revolutionized my lifestyle and values. I found the importance of being alone and an individual. Being alone is like an umbrella hovering over my head that blocks the rest of the world out and filtered in ideas, creativity, beauty, happiness, and positivity. Being alone should become a necessity.
