I am comfortable with myself
I know that it's okay to be alone sometimes
I don't want to turn everything I do into a social event
So when it's time for me to eat,
I may or may not ask some friends to join
Most of the time, I eat alone in the cafeteria
Some people might call those who are eating alone in the cafeteria
They feel sad for us; They get anxiety for us
Because they think we have no friends
Out of all of the times
That I've eaten alone in the cafeteria
I have never felt sorry for myself
When I eat, I am providing my body with nutrients that I need to survive
Why should I feel sorry for myself when eating?
It seems as if
The only ones who get anxiety for us "loners" in the cafeteria
Are the ones who single us out for being "loners"
And not the actual "loners"
When I eat alone in the cafeteria,
I don't get anxiety
Eating alone in the cafeteria:
I don't have to rush. I can just take my time.
I think. I learn more about myself.
I feel good. I feel satisified.
Why are some people not okay with eating alone?
