What makes you emotionally strong? Don’t you miss companionship? Don’t you fear loneliness?

I would be lying if I say I don’t need companionship. Feels nice to have someone to talk to, to cuddle with, to spend the rest of your life with…
Reality – With companionship comes responsibilities, commitment, adjustments, compromises, new relatives, obligations, expectations. These things have started to overwhelm me.
When I think about the freedom I have being single and see the kind of life a committed/married individual is living, I feel content.
It takes time to become emotionally strong and is a never-ending process. I used to fear loneliness until I started enjoying my own company. I’ve become so comfortable with myself that at times (when my emotional strength is at its peak) I just can’t see myself in a relationship.
P.S. – It’s not an easy journey to reach this stage.
So I have always been a misfit. I don’t remember a single day in school that I was not made fun of. Same goes for college.
I later realized that its human nature to acquire joy of someone else’s misery. I also realized that a person spends no more than 60 seconds thinking about another person a day. I realized that it is preposterous to retool my personality for 60 seconds of someone’s approval.
So I checked out completely. Could not be happier since then.
Now no one dares to make fun of me, if they try, I just bring out their deepest insecurities and make them feel like crap. I have incorporated the true nature of society into every molecule of my being. That is why I am emotionally stronger. As for the constant mild anger, that is just my normal disposition.
What did you do on May 12th of this year? If you are like most people in Japan and America, chances are you spent the day with your mother. (In Korea they celebrate “Parent’s Day” on May 8, in Norway Mother’s Day is in February, and many other countries have the holiday on different days too). But it wasn’t always that way. In 1907, Anna Marie Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in West Virginia, and the next year founded the “Mother’s Day International Association.” After that, her suggestion caught on, and the holiday soon became the “Mother’s Day” we celebrate today.
One difference between the original Mother’s Day and the current holiday is that Jarvis was strongly against people making money from the holiday. Instead, she thought people should make handmade gifts and letters for their moms, and not buy any cards, flowers, or anything else.
So, what do you and your family do on Mother’s Day? If you want to celebrate the holiday like its founder intended, hopefully you did something nice for your mother … and didn’t spend any money!
