Never Alone.

People have different ways of dealing with anger and frustration. Some would scream, some would find a friend to rant to, and some would just keep silent and want to be left alone.

I always want to be left alone because I never knew how to articulate my feelings in a calm, collected and peaceful manner. So I walk away and sit in a corner by myself.

Some people obviously try to cheer me up by sitting beside me and trying to get me to talk, some just chatter incessantly.

I hate that because, I don’t feel like talking and I don’t feel like listening to you talk either. Some days, I just want to be left alone, in peace. In silence.

I think, in this aspect, I’ve been blessed to have known two friends who truly understood that when I want to be left alone, I just don’t want to be bothered by people who would try to make me talk or start yakking themselves.

And so, on days when I feel stressed, frustrated, pissed off, on days when I just don’t feel like talking and want to be left alone, they would just sit beside me and watch the world go by with me, leaving me alone in my thoughts, until I am ready to talk, or until they sense that I could use a joke or two.

And it always works.

Which is why I always appreciate them doing this for me, because on days when you just don’t feel like talking, sometimes all you need is that simple act of someone sharing the moment with you. Which always makes you feel that no matter what happens, you’re never alone.
