An illustrator shows how wonderful living alone can be for a woman
October 07, 2020
There is a difference between being lonely and living alone. Yes, because solitude is not always a bad thing, indeed in some cases it can be a great form of responsibility, independence and inner resilience; it is therefore not always a question of the lack of a relationship: living alone is a real choice. A Mexican artist and illustrator named Idalia Candelas wanted to put on paper all the advantages and day to day benefits of living alone as a form of self-esteem.

For a woman who lives alone, lunch or dinner are not a burden, nor are they rituals to be shared with someone ...
A sofa is perfect for two people, but just think how comfortable it can be for one when we want to relax after a tiring day at work ...
On rainy Sundays it is always a pleasure to drink a cup of hot tea and read a good book without interruptions from anyone
And when we live alone, no one is ever be able to tell us how and where to sit: comfort is a personal thing!
When you live alone, even your morning coffee can have a completely different flavor ...
And when waking up in the morning you can take all the time you need to get out of bed ... calmly!
