Alonetime : Solitude
We often mistake Solitude as a Negative aspect.
The dictionary too is wrong, it says solitude is lonely.
Solitude is not lonely its 'alonetime'.
Alonetime is what helps to learn who we are. To function at our peak, we need to know ourselves, and alonetime provides time for self-examination.
The degree of solitude we each require is partly inborn and partly learned. People who are more introverted will feel a greater need for solitude than those who are extroverted. But from a very early age, we all need at least some alonetime.
A perfect alonetime is in the womb, but it's unfortunate that we're too young to appreciate it. Once we're born into this world, we get surrounded. We loose our solitude.
Dear Blogreader, find time for Alonetime, a time you ones experienced in the womb.
