Be your own best friend
and don't forget to wink at yourself
every now and then.
Diane Von Furstenberg
Being on my own for so long has forced me, even if reluctantly, to learn to be happy with myself. I think it is important that we like ourselves. I really don’t think it matters if you are alone like me or not, we still need to make friends with ourselves
I love to go places and do things with others, but that is not always possible. A good part of my life has been spent on my own. You can’t always control when there will be someone there for you, so being able to happily conduct yourself alone is an important part of being alive.
Because I’m alone I've learn to look at ordinary situations in new and unfamiliar ways. I’ve also learned that when you’re alone, it can sometimes be hard to stay positive, but you must be kind to yourself.
Each day I take a good look in the mirror and give myself the biggest, most genuine smile I can muster.
You don’t need to be perfect…just willing to go out and give it your best shot each day.
