You know that feeling you get. The one when you’re surrounded by the people you love the most and you are having the best time ever. Like a thousand butterflies in your stomach. I love that feeling. Everyone talks about that feeling. But most of us try to ignore and not discuss the empty feeling that comes afterwards.

Lonely Butterflies


When you’ve gone back home, shed off your party clothes, and you’re alone again. For some of you that alone time is the best feeling, but for others like me, it is the absolute worst feeling in the world.

When I’ve come home after a fun time, I often get extremely sad. It can feel like the end of the world; especially if no one else is near me. I have to figure out how to entertain myself, which usually consists of a sad movie and some chocolate. That is, until I can find someone to pass the time with again.

Although it may seem like I am over dramatizing this, but you know what? It is absolutely okay to feel this way. It is okay to be sad and down, having a case of the blues, when you aren’t with other people or your friends.

And you want to know why? Because that is the way God made you. You are just a big time social butterfly who is at her best when surround by people.

And there is nothing wrong with that. It just takes some time to cope and recuperate ourselves after we’ve been in that situation. It just means that you love people dearly and want to be with them.

There is also the other side of people, where this type of situation can cause them more harm than good. They would prefer one-on-one time or time alone rather than large crowds. And where my social butterflies are at their best when in the largest of crowds.

But don’t feel like you’re the only one when you’re alone and you feel like you’ve hit rock bottom after having a great time with friends. I promise you, you are not alone. There a lot of other girls out there just like you. You just have to find them so you can be together instead of alone.
