The integrity of being alone.
Only those who prefer solitude will understand.
Being lonely is a weakness, a debilitating one at that,
but being alone by choice is not.
You choose it because you believe in your strength, your capabilities and your mental fortitude.
You choose it because of freedom; to explore fearlessly and without shame.
You choose it because transcending boundaries on your own is safer and easier, and much more comfortable.
Your choose it because mistakes can be made quickly and you can fail fast often.
You choose it because you can bounce back faster using the lessons learnt.
But you must choose it only if you have a support system, a fallback, because no one remains strong forever.
