I have never really been alone in my life.
For any significant period of time, that is. And I’m pretty sure that if I don’t make a concerted effort to learn to love myself and learn to trust that I am perfectly capable of taking care of myself, I will continue to repeat patterns that have kept me from being the most magnificent Alise I can be. So, this journey is about leaving behind the part of me who feels that I need someone else, and who lets someone else make all the decisions, and who is waiting for someone else to take care of me. And learning that all I need is myself, and that I can be truly happy with that.
