Thoughts

I don’t want to be alone.

What a sobering sentence. As I navigate through new stages in my life and play witness to other people’s experiences, I find we tend to circumvent the concept of being alone while putting other excuses in its place.

I was also in my early 20s, beaming confidence while hiding many pockets of self-uncertainty and a bit of luck in the genetics lottery. My hustle was often predicated on being two steps ahead of poverty. After purchasing a one-way ticket, I had no choice but to succeed.
