The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it’s not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person—without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other.
Guess this justifies my tendency and preference to be alone? Ha.
That moment when you procrastinate, and poof – there goes your Sunday. Sigh. Apparently doing nothing is still something, who knew? Seriously time, oh where art thou? You keep slipping past me even when I’m sitting still.
Life is interesting these days, stale as it sometimes can be.
Thanks for all the encouragement and replies about hype; y’all are awesome, period. I’m about to continue I Need Romance 3 episode 10 now… Verdict to drop or stick around is still up in the air. Episode 9 pulled me in somewhat, but also left me scratching my head. The pacing of the show; oi vey, the pacing! Maybe more later…
Pssst I really need to start on the review for Prime Minister & I – yes it’s coming; hold me liable if you don’t see it by next week! I’m giving you permission, ha. The show is worth reviewing and wrapping up, even if it ended with a questionable whimper.
Last but not least, I’m flirting with the idea of changing the comments section to Disqus. Too mainstream? Too much? ….Thoughts? Just wondering…
