i wish there wasn’t a stigma about doing things alone. you can’t go out to eat alone, you can’t see a movie alone, basically anything fun, you’re looked down on for doing alone and it’s so stupid you shouldn’t need other people to validate your decisions
What stigma? People do these things all the time and tbh, it’s only people who deride them that get looked down on. Whenever I’ve talked to friends about folks who do things alone, the words “brave” and “cool” always get used. Also, stigma goes away the more people are open about something, so go out and eat those things, see those movies, do the fun, because the more people are doing it, the more ‘acceptable’ it will be.
