 “Seeing the Milky Way bright and clear in all its glory is an unbelievably inspirational experience.” Various Redditors recommend traveling to rural spots far from the city to get the full feeling. Light pollution prevents us from appreciating the immense beauty of the night sky. 

Getting Defeated

 The agony of defeat is a feeling that can only be processed adequately by going through it. You can only be at the top of your game for so long; this is a tacit rule of life. “Someone will always be better than you. You just have to learn to accept it and move on.”

To Be Loved

“I know I loved, but I never felt for sure that someone loved me” is shared by many Redditors.

Watch Sunrise on the Beach

This does not necessarily have to be a sunrise; it can also be a sunset. As one Redditor commented: “Experienced both sunrise and sunset on the beach and man, those were the best.” 

Being Important to Someone

You are already important to someone, but you need to feel it. In case you have felt “important,” here’s a good Reddit comment: “Quick fix though, and I really mean it: get a dog.”

Although this applies to various facets of life, it can be life-changing in the relationship arena. Even if your leap does not feature a soft landing, it will help you grow personally. One happy Redditor explains: “Yes! This landed me my husband and every year has more love than the next.”

See the Northern Lights

Feeling lonely is not the same as living alone. One Redditor warns, “Once you realize how peaceful living alone can be it can be hard to live with someone else.”
