    Going Out Alone And Actually Enjoy It

    From Redditor u/Needingconfirmation:

    Eating out alone, going to a concert alone, just experiencing doing things by yourself. Especially while young, learning to be comfortable with yourself as your only company while enjoying beautiful things in life is so freeing.

    Love.

    And here I don't mean romantic love, but just love. Be it from a pet, a brother, a friend, or even a partner.

    Failing In Order To Grow

    From Redditor u/Iloathecricket:

    Failure, and I don’t mean this in a bad way. But I feel like most, if not all the progress/growth I’ve made so far in life has been as a direct result of failure.

    Making Something With Your Own Hands

    From Redditor u/ProfessionalCow9566:

    Make something with your own hands. Could be art, could be a fire, could be a carving or a tool or clay or a shelter in the woods. Creating something that came from you, and you alone is a rewarding experience and gives one a true sense of pride. Just using your own hands and some tools to make something out of nothing makes me feel grounded, connected, and away from my troubles for a bit.
