Of course, a healthy dose of solitude needn’t be a bad thing. We all need time and space to reflect and to mull over those things which are bothering us. Hitting the pause button, stepping back, getting things in perspective, tending to our spiritual health – those time-outs are best done on our own. A walk through a park, or along a beach for those of us who live at the coast, or a foray into the hills can be exactly what the doctor ordered (literally, in some cases.)
Sometimes it’s good to be alone. Sometimes it’s essential.
