    Everyone moves through their days alone, but a lot of people don’t allow themselves to experience the freedom of being alone without feeling lonely. Togetherness is a subjective feeling we make in ourselves. Everyone has a separate consciousness that we inhabit all our lives. I think if you embrace that separation and continue to seek connection you end up interacting in the world in a much healthier, more satisfied manner. I love being alone as much as I love being a part of society. There is no difference, and I believe the more a person is able to embrace that idea the more he or she can have positive and truly authentic relationships with others.
