To all my Twenty Something Girls out there this is a major one! You have to be okay by yourself and usually I am totally fine when I’m alone but this Holiday weekend I learned one major thing about myself! I’m totally dependent on my boyfriend for good time. I know that sounds pathetic so let me explain.
This weekend my boyfriend and his family went out of town for the Holidays to see family, I was invited but opted not to go, I wanted to spend the Holidays with my parents and little sister ( although on Friday my mother went out of town) Thursday was cool because it was Thanksgiving; lots going on in the house, but even that was a bit weird. For the past 13 years we’ve a house completely filled for Thanksgiving and this year it was just 4 of us. Friday was cool too because my Dad and little sister and I went to the mall, did a little shopping came home and watched christmas movies until we eventually fell asleep. Saturday I was under the impressions my boyfriend would be home around 2 so I planned my entire day around leaving at 1 to go see him! Then I got news he’d be home later, and later and later until eventually he text me at midnight that he had just gotten home. My entire day was a drag, i was literally upset and bored and roaming around the house all day. I turned down plans with my dad and little sister expecting to leave the house early. I realized I somewhat plan my days around what he’s doing, I’m engulfed in our relationship. Literally every single friend of mine has moved to a different city so I sometimes feel like he’s all I have when I need a break form my Parents.
What am I saying by telling you this story, you have to be okay by yourself, you have to entertain yourself and find other things to out your interest into ( I can only surf the internet so many times before it gets boring) I’m the type of girl that thoroughly enjoys spending time with my boyfriend, movies, the ark, lunch dinner or brunch and even just being in the apartment on the couch doing our own thing. I’m starting to realize I need to be less dependent on my boyfriend for filling my time and find out things I can do that I will enjoy and looking for other places to find my fun and girls you should too! The moral of this short little story, in your Twenties you have to learn to be okay by yourself!
