When I wake up in the morning to start a new day, I never know what lies in front of me. But I know I must face the battle alone.

I live alone, with no girlfriend or kids and a very small family. Some say, “Well, go and get some friends.” But in this age, it’s not that simple. Most people are selfish in their own way — that’s a fact, not an opinion.

I was always the oddball who liked to observe and learn from others’ mistakes. Now, as an adult, I find myself walking down the road of life alone. I’m grateful, and I appreciate life. I just want to enjoy it and stay positive and focused on my goals.

I’m used to having a lot of people around me, or at least that one special person in my life. I don’t want a lot of friends or distractions, just someone to enjoy life with.

I find myself alone a lot nowadays. Things and people have changed since I moved into my new place.

I haven’t had a lot of friends in years, so I’m cool with that. I prefer that over pretenders who are not true friends and just want something from you. Nowadays, many people spend all day on their phone, wrapped up in social media. Me? I would prefer to take my valuable time and focus and enjoy “REALITY” instead.

So, for now, I’ll keep pursuing my goals and hope that I meet the right kind of people and that special someone.
