A legendary Russian filmmaker and writer once was asked what would he tell the youngsters and he said,
I don’t know… I think I’d like to say only that they should learn to be alone and try to spend as much time as possible by themselves. I think one of the faults of young people today is that they try to come together around events that are noisy, almost aggressive at times. This desire to be together in order to not feel alone is an unfortunate symptom, in my opinion. Every person needs to learn from childhood how to be spend time with oneself. That doesn’t mean he should be lonely, but that he shouldn’t grow bored with himself because people who grow bored in their own company seem to me in danger, from a self-esteem point of view.
Being alone does not necessarily mean you are no one to everyone else. It is one way of valuing yourself; do you hurt someone by your words? Do you actually value people as much as they deserve it? Do you intentionally let an opportunity slips away because you want to stay in your comfort zone?
If you cannot even go out for your lunch alone, what that makes of you?
I spend quite some time being alone. There are a lot of things going in the mind in which some of them can sometimes give my the Collywobbles. But it is good in certain ways. It is more or less like self-reflection.
There is one specific time when men like to be alone though; when doing handjob.
The point is, learn to be alone. I believe that everyone is for himself. I might not live long enough to be qualified to preach you but I have gone through many experiences to believe that. At least I choose to believe something. Do you?
