Someone once asked me whether I am comfortable to go out to eat by myself. Truth is, I am. I’m by no means a loner. I have a host of friends and family too. Yet I live under circumstances now in which I can’t always find someone to do something with me. But that shouldn’t stop me from doing things on my own.

Truth is I probably won’t go clubbing on my own. But a meal, movie, coffee or a drink, no problem. It’s not that I am totally comfortable and never feel self-conscious. Of course, I do. I think even the most confident human being can be self-conscious. But at some point, we just need to overcome that feeling and step out.

Grab a book, grab your smartphone. Just go out, do your thing. Enjoy your own company. Own it!
