Have you ever enjoyed being alone? I don’t mean being single in the relationship sense, I mean spending time alone with yourself, going for a solitary walk, reflecting, meditating.
I personally love to be alone, and many people don’t understand this. They ask me, “Why do you like to be alone? Don’t you get bored, or lonely?” And I always answer, “No, I usually don’t.”
Of course I’m not some robot, I have feelings and sometimes I get down like everyone else, but I feel like I’m most calm, relaxed and focused on what’s best for me when I spend time alone. I still love being with my boyfriend and my friends, but I believe spending time alone makes me a better person, because during these silent hours of solitude, I am able to reflect deeply upon myself, my life, and my actions.
Today, I went hiking in the forest and It was amazing. I felt like a little kid again as I lifted my feet along the mossy, fragrant ground. I felt like I could feel the forest smile back at me as my heart became lighter and my mind became clearer with each muddy footstep.
You see, I think that when you are a sensitive person and you are around other people, you often pick up on and absorb their energies. I know that for me, constantly being around others or even one other person really drains my energy levels after a while. I believe that in order to restore a balanced level of energy and inner quietude, that time in solitude is necessary.
I hope that you can take the opportunity to spend some time with just yourself and are able to drink from the fountain of inner tranquility.
