the importance of solitude

Solitude brings us perspective and self-analysis like nothing else can. Yes, we are social animals but in order to be effective and caring listeners when accompanied by others, we need that time to be able to process what we have seen and heard. Only then can we return to those social settings as an even more engaged participant.

I have always been more of a one to one type person than a group person. I get lost in my thoughts in big gatherings and small talk mostly disinterests me so I need that alone time to process everything once I have been involved with others in a more meaningful way...


  1. Agreed. All my best thoughts come during solitude. It's why travelling solo by motorcycle appeals to me so much.
