I’ve been living on my own for almost 2 years now. In that time I’ve hated it, cried myself to sleep sometimes, convinced I had made the worst mistake.
But it passed. I developed certain habits: I buy toilet paper twice a year and I socialise all day and enjoy a whole evening to myself to regroup.
Enter Spokytail. She’s staying for a little while and I am struggling. I hate answering questions about my day or deciding what we will eat for dinner – I DON’T CARE!!! LEAVE ME ALONE!!!
It’s not personal to her, I promise. I guess I just don’t know how to cohabitate. I have grown accustomed to being by myself and… I like it – alot.
Problem is, I am in waiting. It is my God given desire not to be like this forever- It is not good for us to be alone afterall, right? So I must practise with this one. I must learn to share my space with another, run my home with another, share a life with another…..
