SOLITUDE

in HOME/THEME

 

  • Solitude is the state of being alone without being lonely. It is a positive and constructive state of engagement with oneself.
  • Solitude is desirable, a state of being alone where you provide yourself wonderful and sufficient company.
  • Solitude is a time that can be used for reflection, inner searching or growth or enjoyment of some kind.
  • Deep reading requires solitude, so does experiencing the beauty of nature. Thinking and creativity usually do too.
