Everyone have their own ways of enjoying life, some might do mountain climbing, surfing, rave parties, travel etc.,. But, in contrary to this norm, introverts enjoys life with themselves like reading books, music and activities that enable them to be alone.
While, people are having a good time socializing with people. Here I am, enjoying my time with books; with myself. If you may ask me if I like it, no, it’s hard to be alone especially in times you seek someone whom you could laugh with; with common wavelength of interests and compatibility.
The world will continue rotating as our life moves forward endlessly. Along the road we will meet people; some might teach us, step us, love us and stay. It isn’t easy to find people who could understand our weirdness, our unique personality.
We all have our dreams seeking ways to achieve. But what if you’re aimless; don’t know what he wants to be. This is what young adults are facing. Career confusions.
When I started walking through my dream work– in the corporate world. I faced a lot of challenges one of those is relationship. As a unico ijo or an only child I wasn’t experienced when it comes to building a relationship. I’m a failure in this aspect in which HR professionals’ greatest asset.
I don’t know when and how I could develop this, perhaps, through continuous socialization with people. However, my environment doesn’t allow me to do so. I felt so incompetent in this field and it hinders my capability to grow. I don’t know how to create a better topic of conversation, I have a hard time adjusting my interests with others and I seriously lack sense of humor. It’s really hard especially when I’m in a faucet that requires excellent interpersonal skills.
I want to get out of my comfort zone but how am I able to do such when my resources are limited. I wanted to go out and hangout with friends but they all have their own busy businesses.
Now, I always ask myself. What to choose between all those faucet of HR. I want to try it all; I want to master it all. But, I don’t know where to start.
I wonder what my life would be if I’ve received the so called “Love”. I ask myself this question almost everyday.. every night. I shut myself in my room enjoying the company with myself and computer. I have indulge myself to various novels and games. I have rejected invitations for social gatherings and hangouts but I didn’t regret it. In fact, I felt relieved. This is the life I’ve had for several years and without restraint I enjoyed it. In some rare occasions, I felt lonely but it’s only temporary.
A lot of people asked if I already have a lover. “None” I said. Actually, they are doubting my sexuality since they never see me have a significant other. But, little did they know that I reason I keep on avoiding relationship is because it is too complicated. Besides, I have several attempts but it didn’t end well. Rejection sometimes friendzoned. With all of these painful experiences I asked myself “Do I really need to have a lover?”, “Is it necessary?”, “It’s fine being alone, right?”. Just recently, I have tried pursuing the one I like but usual it was a failure. Perhaps, there’s a problem with myself or I’m just too unfortunate.
Life is really unfair, in my case but it doesn’t mean I will dwell in this kind of problem for the rest of my life. This is the reason why I have the resolve to be with myself for awhile.. I don’t know how many years will it take perhaps another decade. They said I’m still young and inexperienced, well, yes I’m truly an idiot. I lack some common sense there are things that I’m clueless. Despite of my pursuit to higher knowledge I forgot the simple things. All these technicalities I have mastered and yet I neglected some easy things. Maybe, this the reason why I’m alone.
Loneliness, I’m used to it.
But why do people keep on avoiding me. I’m riding a bus, it was almost full and yet no one wants to sit beside me unless, they have no choice to. I’m asking myself do I smell bad? Do I look like evil or something like that. I won’t bother if this only happen once or twice however, it isn’t… whenever I rode buses they’re avoiding me for some reason. This makes me conscious of what’s wrong with me.
What’s wrong? I don’t know… Oh! Please, tell me why! I’m in distress.
It is a great opportunity. I am learning a lot — growing intrinsically. I am becoming more aware of my surroundings and do multiple tasks at the same time. However, I still want to learn more and more and more about this field I have pursued. So, this is what they called Happiness in Work. Even though I’m still young it won’t hinder the excellence I’ll do in all things I commit with.
Alone. Again, I stood tall bearing loneliness in my heart
The sun is calling in the morning. Its warmth hugging my entirety. Song of birds chirping as choral. As I started the day with a smile and positivity despite of tons of work that are waiting for me. It might not be obvious but God has always given me strength, courage and wisdom to overcome all of these.
