Also, I'm learning that it's important to embrace solitude, rather than avoid it at all costs or to see it in a negative light. Usually, because of my overanalyzing tendencies and my anxious nature, whenever I'm sitting still for too long or have too much time alone or for thinking, I start to think about things that upset me. All of these what-ifs and my biggest fears come creeping into my mind.
Related to biggest fears, I'm beginning to come to terms with the fact that people and animals are not immortal, and neither are concepts or ideas, for that matter. Some, such as Shakespeare's work, have lasted through the ages. But the idea that the Earth is flat, the idea that two men cannot marry each other, the idea that women should not be able to vote - these ideas are defunct, in the most rudimentary sense that they are untrue. So much of what we believe in today, we will no longer believe in tomorrow - because those beliefs will be incorrect. Here is a really interesting link called "10 Completely False 'Facts' Everyone Else Knows" ! It will really change your perspective - it sure did for me! -and it will make you more curious about the things you're told are "true". Enjoy!
Until Next Time,
