Self, you’re going to be alone for a good, long while. I mean, you’ve been alone for a good, long while already, but it’s still going to be a good, long while until that changes. That sucks. A lot. The memories are going to taunt you for the duration of this good, long while, but there’s nothing you can do but remember and let those memories pass you by. Until this good, long while is over with and you find yourself in a place where you can smile and feel truly happy again. But as lonely as you may feel when you’re alone for this good, long while, you still have yourself. At one point you were alone and not as lonely, I think, though maybe you were just ignorant then. Needless to say, though, you have been alone for a good, long while before and it was not so bad. You know how to do this. Be patient and love yourself. It’s going to be okay.
