Why Isolating Yourself Will Make You HappierA trip home {New Jersey} made me realize that I really enjoy the California bubble I’ve created for myself. In a way, I’ve isolated myself to create my perfect life. In order for me to live happily, I needed my space, and I keep realizing this over and over. Mind you, I have nothing but love for my family, but my family doesn’t understand me. I have always marched to the beat of my own drum and people have either made the time to understand my rhythm or they didn’t. Having said that, I am perfectly fine with the distance between me and my old life in New Jersey if it means I get to live my life the way I want to. Planes were invented to bring us wherever we want to go, like family visits, or even more importantly, back to the bubbles we have created for ourselves.

Everyone lives I a bubble, but some people leave more room for everyone around them. Although family and distant friends are really important to me, I am at the point in my life that I put me first. Whatever is happening in my bubble is the most important thing in the world to me. My little family of animals, boyfriend, our hopes, dreams, traditions, specially chosen friends… that is my amazing bubble and in that bubble I am completely happy and content. It’s in that bubble that I can be unapologetically weird and adventurous because everyone and everything in that bubble is like me or accepts me without judgment. I also know that when I expand my bubble for special occasions, I do so with my guard up. The Scorpio in me makes me extremely emotional and reactionary. A pissed off Scorpio is no good for anyone, so they should be given space and not provoked to strike. I will strike to protect everything that is sacred inside my bubble.

So let’s talk about this isolation. It’s not to shut people out for good, because like I said, I will expand the bubble and family and old friends are super important. If you’re part of the misunderstood, the misfits, the dreamers, don’t isolate yourself from everyone and everything. That’s how you throw yourself into a depression. There is always someone out there that like the beat of your drum, so fill your bubble with those people. Isolation isn’t about being alone, it’s about only surrounding yourself with what makes you truly happy. It’s scary to take that step of breaking off and following the wind to where it blows you, but I can tell you from experience, breaking free will transform your life. At the end of the day, this type of isolation and bubble building is to create YOUR life. I want my family, friends, and followers to live unbelievably happy, unique, and individual lives filled with intention, gratitude, and good vibes. Think about how you can create your bubble and make your life about YOU.
