Let's talk about loneliness for a second. So there was definitely a point in my time in my life where I had to embrace just being lonely and I and I can't really remember the exact specific time and I think if I probably dug deep enough, it's probably some kind of dark memory there, but I do remember that there was this probably period of time where I felt like I was going to have to be okay with just being alone, being by myself, not having anyone around and kind of taking that leap to be able to be comfortable with being alone. It was actually really difficult. But now in hindsight that I look at this like this kind of journey that I went through in terms of embracing loneliness, I see how much of a benefit is actually giving me in terms of just getting things done because I do see a lot of other people that spend a lot of time in combatting loneliness and there's nothing wrong with that.
I mean humans are very social creatures, but there is a lot of time spent in terms of trying to combat loneliness and a lot of people get upset with different things that happened in their life if they are left to feel lonely. So maybe their spouse cheats on them or something tragic or something that just really disturbing happens, right? Well, when you kind of are comfortable with just being alone, just being by yourself and I should probably add that I had no way feel alone ever. And mostly because I had this amazing Pomeranian dog who is and she's looking at me because she knows I'm talking about her. But yeah, she goes with me everywhere and we're like best friends. So in terms of loneliness, I think she is a great companion to have.
But when you just really embrace the fact that you are okay with being alone and once you get over that hurdle, it's like a superpower because at that point you're resilient. You're not dependent on other people, other people's feelings don't have anything to do with your feelings. You're able to separate the two and it just allows for more freedom. So instead of being dependent on other people worrying about having a husband or a wife or whatever. You know, you're just really just satisfied and content with being by yourself. Some people naturally have this, I actually have um a friend who recently confided in me that they were perfectly okay with being alone as well.
For me personally, it took a little bit of time to come to this realization, but there was a period in my life where I had to sit myself down and say, Robin, you know, you're just gonna have to be comfortable with being by yourself, No one else is gonna have your back, no one else is going to be around for you and this is it like this is you, it's just you and the world and a lot of times I actually do imagine what my life would be like if it was like a legend type situation when I'm talking about a legend. I'm referencing the movie from um with Will Smith where he's just the last person on Earth and if I was in this legend type situation, I think I would be okay as long as I had my companion um Rary, my dog in terms of just being okay and being able to sustain on my own, I think I'll be okay where I probably won't be okay is you know, it'll really suck to not have an Uber driver, bring me my food. So I really need technology to be able to take that over. So that part is done for me.
Anyway, the point of this whole episode is do you embrace being alone or are you dependent on other people? Have you had a chance to actually take that step over and be content with just who you are? Kind of, the feeling is kind of like just being married to yourself. So instead of focusing on trying to find your other half, you are your other half and once you get this feeling where you're comfortable and you feel whole just by yourself man, it's like an amazing feeling that brings so much freedom and I hope this freedom for you as well.
