Note to self

What if my life as an actor proves I’m all shell and no interiour?

Last night, when I was introduced and treated as “this is my dance friend,” I felt the lifelong pangs of abject loneliness.

I am alone in the desert island of my thoughts.



I can turn to others but what is there to say/ask that isn’t a repeat of either myself or billions of lonely creatures going back to the dawn of chemical reactions?

Step 1: Accept that you are ‘un-dateable’.

Don’t just think so, accept it.
Step 2: Decide to live alone for the rest of your life.

Just cement this belief in your mind.
Step 3: Realize that you’ve just attained the ‘nothing to lose’ level in life. 

This is like a wild card, a level-up, a lottery.
Step 4: Go everywhere alone. 

Malls, parks, movies, theatres, galleries, quora meetups, other meetups, science clubs, art clubs, heritage walks, music festivals, everywhere. Even better, go backpacking solo.
Step 5: Enjoy the guts out of yourself. 

Forget about dating.

Do this for the next 6 months, I guarantee you you’ll prepare yourself to live alone for the rest of your life.

By the way, plans never work according to plan.

What I want you to take away from this answer is this.
Enjoy the guts out of yourself.

I have nowhere to go, nowhere not to go.
