Solitude is not always negative

Solitude, in the view of a lot of people is always seen as a negative experience that should be avoided. Yes, it’s true that, to some extent, is presumably bad but solitude is needed and we’ve better experience it from to time as it may have some positive aspects.

Though we need to socialize with people around us and discuss with them, sometimes, it’s better to give ourselves a chance to be alone because when we do so, we could plunge into a profound meditation far from others’ comments and effects they may cause on decisions we take in our lives. While alone, we can deeply understand our inner thoughts and profoundly travel into our imagination to answer some questions we already have in mind or to form new ones that may affect our next steps we want to make. Besides, when we’re alone, we become more ready to organize our ideas and make general evaluation to our situation and to the problems we face.

So if we have this chance of being alone regularly, I think, we may avoid many inconvenient and rush decisions and the way we deal with our problems would be more wise and cool. I’m not saying that I’m perfect and I do the process myself but I try as much as possible to make things take the right direction and we’ll never be perfect.

  1. There is a difference between solitude and lonliness.
    Lonliness is very hard while solitude is something that can be chosen.
