Just over a week ago, I wrote a post titled ‘5 Reasons I’m Scared Of Living Alone’. I wrote that post so that after a week of living alone was over, I could look back and see if it really was as bad as I thought it would have been. I had hoped that the post and this one would encourage me to be more adventurous and less afraid next time something new happens.
If you are reading this post and it is making no sense to you, maybe you should go back and read the ‘5 Reasons I’m Scared Of Living Alone‘ post.
Anyway, I digress, the week is finally over and it has been tiring and strange. Tiring and strange in the best possible way. I feel like a completely different person now that I have done this.
My first worry was that I would feel lonely. This was a little bit of an issue. I was pretty much way too busy to be feeling lonely most of the time. However, when I was left alone, I began to feel alone and started to miss everyone back home. I did manage to overcome this though. I mostly distracted myself with books and tv. I also found it helpful to FaceTime and call my family and friends.
My second worry was that I wouldn’t know what to do with myself. This was hardly an issue at all. My whole week was pretty much sleep, work, sleep, work, sleep, oh and work. When I did have time to myself, it was spent reading which sounds pretty good to me.
The third worry was not getting on with the people I was working with. This did actually happen. One lady I was working with took a disliking to me straight away. At first this was a big issue to me. For some reason, I was desperate to make her like me. However, nothing I did was good enough. After a couple of days, I began to realise that it doesn’t matter if one lady doesn’t like me. I got on with absolutely everyone else. You can’t be liked by everyone.
I also worried about having nothing to do and being bored. There was hardly anything to do around the area I was staying in. However, I managed to go on many walks and got a lot of reading and tv watching done.
My last worry was missing the people back home. Obviously I missed the people at home. Thank Gosh for phones..
I feel like a completely different person now that the week is over. I feel changed for the better.
