Everyday Denim // Just Be

"If you want to be happy, be."

Just be. 

The state of our happiness should not be reliant on anyone or anything else but ourselves. So often we find ourselves seeking happiness or comfort through other people or other things, but if we can't find happiness in just ourselves, how will we ever truly be happy? It's a level of self-acceptance and self-esteem, being just as comfortable alone as we are in the company of others, finding peace and happiness in solitude and in togetherness. This applies to so many other aspects of our lives. I feel like so many of us are afraid to go out on our own because we're uncomfortable without companionship. We don't know how to attend events without a friend, we don't like to eat meals without companionship, we refuse to travel without a partner, and ultimately, we refuse to spend our lives without a significant other. We fear loneliness, and often, our level of loneliness defines our level of happiness. I am far from finding happiness at all these levels, but I do know that I can be happy being alone. I like to describe myself as an extroverted introvert, because I often find so much happiness in my own company.
