I used to hate solitude. It used to give me major anxiety thinking about even going out to eat on my own..I'd surround myself with tons of people, hide behind a crowd or my camera and never allow myself to experience some real "me" time. One day About 6 years ago got in a huge fight with an ex, which resulted in dinner plans being cancelled. I decided to do the unthinkable at the time and took myself out on the date. I was shaking, I was so uneasy walking into that restaurant alone. But there I was, at a table for 1, enjoying a fancy steak, a tall beer and a comic book on my own. Ever since I dove off that fearful cliff facing solitude I've embraced it to the fullest!
