Personal: I find peace on solitude
Solitude. When we think about solitude we tend to think of something empty. But solitude may not necessarily be bad. Yes, of course, being with other people is good. It’s amazing, actually. But knowing how to be in our own company is an art that enriches our inner self. And that makes us stronger.
I’ve always liked being alone. I do not know if it’s because I’m an only child, but as long as I remember I never mind doing things with myself. Going to lunch, going to the movies, going to the beach, anyway … I never needed friends to go wherever I wanted to.
And the truth is even though I love to be with my people, there are times when I need to be all alone, in my world. It makes me feel good and gives me peace. It’s a moment where it’s just me, and me, in my own company. It’s a magical moment.
Knowing how to enjoy our company is halfway to not needing any company. And a compliment to those we are with. After all, we are not with them because we need to be with someone, but because we want to be with them.
In fact, knowing how to enjoy our company is halfway to not need any company. And a compliment to those we are with. After all, we are not with them because we need to be with someone, but because we want to be with them.
I know we’re not all the same, but the next time you’re feeling alone, stop. Appreciate your company, do things you love and enjoy. At that moment it is just you and a chance of being happy with yourself. And when we learn to be with ourselves, without crutches, we are much happier when we are with other people.
So there is peace in solitude. Because in the end, we are born and die alone. So we need to be our best friends, right?
