This is a sentiment I have to constantly remind myself in college: “You can be alone without being lonely”. It’s not that I feel lonely, it’s quite the opposite actually. I am a very social person and I like to be constantly surrounded with people. Sometimes I’ll go out of my way to be around people even though I could probably use some alone time or should probably be doing some homework (or better yet, be writing my blog/ editing a video).
Sometimes I surround myself with people so I am not left alone with my thoughts. Socializing is almost mediative to me because I love feeling happy and conversations help me fulfill that.
Today, I heard the news about the tragedy in Las Vegas and I was in disbelief, I was in shock, I was scared, and I didn’t know what to do. Thankfully I am surrounded by a super supportive floor and we were all around the T.V. watching the news for updates barely being able to fathom that something like this would happen. I was heartbroken hearing all the stories about the selfless acts that took place that night and the lives that were sacrificed for others. Everyone that I was watching the news with on my floor didn’t know what to say; it is such a crazy occurrence and such a sad thing to happen. I don’t even know how to feel. This is a time we all just need to be there for each other. Life is too precious to take it for granted. Check in with people in your life, tell them you love them, ask how their day was, because you never know what day will be their last.
Love you all.
Talk to you soon.
