How to Be Happy Alone: Ultimate Guide to Master

Can you be truly happy alone? 

Yes, it is 100% possible, many people are living happily alone, anyone can do it, With the help of the following tips, we are hoping they will help you master it.

Alone vs. Loneliness

There is a difference between both. Staying single physically is called being alone, needing other people’s company, Our happiness depends on others and even surrounded by a lot of people, we can still feel lonely.

There are people who find it hard to live alone; just like that, there are also people who find it hard to stay around people, and it is easy for them to live happily alone. The difference is just the habit they make. Alone people make love with themselves and know how to be detached, and lonely people make attachments with others (this makes life harder). The best practice is to master both, either alone or surrounded by people. Our emotional state must remain same. Here are the 12 best tips to master being happy alone.

1. Practice detachment.

Love vs. attachment

Where there is attachment, there is no pure love. Let us understand what true detachment means: not getting attached to anyone or anything. Over-involving, over-thinking, and over-expectations mean attachment. For example, if a mother is attached to her son, if the son gets happy, it affects her; she will also be happy, but when he gets pain, the mother too feels a lot of pain more than him. In this situation, the son needs love or a happy environment around him to cure fast, but she feels pain and radiates more pain to his son. This is because attachment always leads to sad endings. Detachment is the original nature of human beings; attachment is the weakness of human beings; detachment means letting go of persons or things happily; it is pure love; attachment is our weakness in giving to others. Let’s get rid of our weaknesses.

How to practice detachment

First, we learned that attachment will lead to pain for myself and others, and our original nature is detachment. For example, if we are attached to our own bike or car, when the vehicle gets damaged or robbed, what is our reaction? Is our mind stable in that situation? No, we become unstable or sad. This is because we are attached. Let’s try detaching with our vehicle. Firstly, when we are not driving, we also think about enjoying the company of the vehicle. Giving more attention or extra care to your vehicle, saying I love my bike or car. Enjoying it while driving is fine, but imagining happiness given by a vehicle when we are not driving is the first step we are making attachment to it. So stop imagining and kill the root. Change thinking to: A vehicle is a thing used by me, helping me to commute; more than that, it is not a priority in my life, and thinking like this helps to detach from it.
