Shoutout to those doing it ALONE.

Shoutout to everyone doing it ALONE.⠀

You know who you are...⠀

And when people say “omg you’re not alone! You have me!” and "you're not alone, you have so many friends"I hear you and I’m rolling my eyes FOR YOU. Nothing stings quite like dismissal of a personal and truthful experience.

Being alone, single, child free is, like my friend Michael says, a full time job. ⠀

To live alone. To go to bed alone. To grocery shop and cook for one. To cry alone. To succeed alone. To grieve alone. To laugh alone. To work. To pay bills. To do laundry. To be alone with yourself. To balance work and life alone. To have things go wrong and clean up alone. And allllllll the other life shit, is a lot. ALONE.

It’s empowering and isolating. ⠀

And not being able to unload and share and connect with someone on a regular basis, it can HURT. And yet each and every day, you get up, smile, and do it all again. Also alone.


This isn't about being sad or depressed. Nope not at all. People who are independent and childfree struggle in ways that are often overlooked. There are challenges of being in that space just as much as any other lifestyle choice. ⠀

Not downplaying the struggles of anyone else, that’s a whole separate post. This isn't the Struggle Olympics, friends.


And ya know what? The single, independent, child free friends doing the damn thing each and every day, in a pandemic: here is your moment to be recognized. ⠀

I see you.

I hear you.

And you’re doing a great fucking job. ⠀
