“Turns out not where, but who you’re with that really matters” -DMB
I was singing this song outloud the other day when I stopped and thought about this line. I have spent the last three years making sure that I love WHERE I am. I put daily effort into going to WHERE I want. Traveling is something that comes easy to me. I find ways to get where I want to go and then I just do it. At first it was scary, the leaving part, but now it feels right and I’m comfortable with going and doing as much as I can. I’m good at finding the joy wherever I am.
But the “WHO I’m with is what really matters” lingered in my mind for quite sometime. I started thinking about dating. It’s not something I want to do right now. I thought about my friends. I have amazing friends that could go someWHERE with me. But I could go by myself just the same. I wondered if I was missing something and if I should feel lonely. But I don’t. Or if there was something wrong with loving my solitude. After I few days dwelling on this, I finally realized that the WHO is myself. I am the WHO. We all need to be comfortable with ourselves to be happy. That is what really matters. The end.
