When I Get Lonely These Days

When I Get Lonely These Days

When I get lonely these days,
I think: So BE lonely.
Learn your way around loneliness.
Make a map of it,
Sit with it, for once in your life.
Welcome to the human experience.
But never again use
another person’s body
or emotions as a scratching post
for your own unfulfilled yearnings.

– Elizabeth Gilbert
