Importance of Solitude

People often don’t realise the difference between loneliness and solitude. They think that if you’re alone and enjoying your own company, you’re a loner, but that’s not true.

Solitude isn’t something you should be afraid of, it’s something  you should be happy about. 

Having time to yourself is as important as socialising with other people. Why?

  1. Self-Discovery:
    Well, firstly, you get a clear idea of who you are and what your goals are. It also gives you a chance to learn something new about yourself.
  2. Catching up with your mind:
    Our body is often detached from our mind. Thinking, reciprocating and understanding our thoughts and feelings helps us to connect our mind and body together.
  3. Gives you a break from all the drama:
    Sometimes you just need to get away from all the drama happening in the outside world. In a world of overstimulation, our minds are constantly in an overactive mode. Solitude allows your mind to detach from all the endless chatter coming from the environment around you, which gives you a peaceful and tranquil feeling.
  4. Focus:
    Solitude helps you focus on what’s important and ignoring those things that aren’t your priorities.

Anyway, my point is, enjoy your solitude and make the best of it. 😀

    Right?! So many people don’t understand when I’m perfectly fine being alone at home or in silence

    I totally agree! I really need time alone now and then. Constantly being around people drain me:)
