Anonymous asked: how do you deal with being alone?
I’m never alone, even when I’m alone.
Be alone. Get to know yourself. There are secrets even you are keeping from you.
There are different kinds of alone anyway. Some amount of each one is a good thing throughout life; not too much solitude. You’ll end up like me-I’ve become too much of a hermit. I like my bed though.
