Don’t you feel sad for someone who’s eating all alone in a canteen or a restaurant? It’s so boring to eat all alone. I used to feel the same for people sitting alone in school and ccollege during lunch. But after I started working, even I had to come across times when I have to sit alone in McDonald’s and chew on a burger in a corner.
That’s when I realised- it’s not that bad!
There are so many reasons why people have to eat out alone. They may be artists who want peace in a cafe, or a person tired of the days work wanting to relax. Maybe, someone just wants to sit alone with their own thoughts for a while (or a sales executive who is damned to travel all day😅). People are away from their families and friends now a days and in large numbers. They are working hard to suceed in life! I think it should be a sign of strength that someone is able enjoy his or her own company.
I don’t feel sad anymore for these people. Why not think positively and pass them a smile?
Having coffee alone is always relaxing! And I have made some good friends with total strangers at McDonald’s !
Pizza all alone, all for me! It has its own golden feeling to it.
Tea, while enroute Bhopal via bus. I was with a total stranger, who turned out tto be my grad college senior !
Sometimes, you gotta. ..
When it is tea time, you are not on a sales call (wow!), and no one’s there in office… just enjoy the view!
Last but not the least, I have discovered the best places while eating out alone. For example, Jamie’s Pizzeria in Palladium Mall, Mumbai. I LOVE it! the coffee was exquisite too!
How often have you eaten alone? I hope you enjoy your self-time, everytime!
