I was always the person that never could do anything alone. I went to the cinema only if my friends went with me. I went shopping only if someone went with me. Hell, I bought ice-cream if only someone bought it too. I do not know why I always had this thing about never doing anything alone but it really has been getting to my nerves lately. The previous Saturday I was having a really rought day - life was getting a bit to hard to handle, I just needed to get out of my house and go somewhere, do something. I texted three of my best friends and all three of them were busy either studying, cleaning her room or out with other friends. I felt so alone and even more sad but I just couldn't stay home. So I did what I never did before - I went out alone. I took a book and went to the beautiful Bernardin gardens all by myself. I sat there and read alone. When the weather got a bit too chilly I went to a coffee shop, ordered a pistachio lattee and sat there all alone with my book and a delicious cup of coffee. And when the night came, I did my makeup, put a beautiful blue retro dress, took my dance shoes, sat on my bike and I rode to a big lindy hop dance party. Drinking coffee and reading a book alone was first level stuff, but going to a party all alone that was something very hard to make myself do. I always used to go to these parties with my dance partner but he left me and stopped dancing some time ago. However, the event was so beautiful and I met a lot of friends there so I wasn't alone at all. I barely got few minutes to rest my feet because I danced almost the whole night.
Despite being so affraid to do something alone, I really enjoyed it. A person needs to learn to be all by himself but once he does it becomes a real pleasure. I needed that time to unwind my head and this little thing changed my attitude big time.
