I think one of the things that most people struggle with living alone is the silence - the silence that you wake up to on cold winter days, and the silence that surrounds you when you do mundane tasks, like doing the dishes. They say you'll grow accustomed to it, and that it gets better with time. Fortunately, I've never really had an issue with the silence,
and I enjoy the space that comes with living alone.
I used to think that I would eventually move in and share an apartment with a friend, but the more I think about it, the more convinced I am about living on my own. This reminds me of lyrics from a song I love:
"I'll be alone / But maybe more carefree /
Like a kite that floats so effortlessly /
I was afraid to be alone /
But now I'm scared that's how I like to be."
- November, Azure Ray
Living alone has honestly taught me innumerable things, and I have grown in so many ways...
I will maybe do a post on my Melbourne experience, but that's a story for another day :)
