Alone but not Lonely

“A soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone.”

The above quote makes us think, how far is it true? Would we rather always be alone? The answer to that, dear reader, is the difference between being alone and being lonely.

Being lonely is not the lack of company. It is the lack of the feeling of usefulness, the lack of a busy mind. Being alone however, is a completely different, rather trivial matter. It simply means to be without other people nearby. That doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy our own company does it?

It is sometimes better to have alone time or me time. This doesn’t mean we curl up under our blankets screaming “The world is so unfair!!!”

 Alone time can mean different things to different people. For some it could mean reading a book, for some watching television etc.

Hobbies are one thing that can help you get some alone time. Some people are quite addicted to a certain kind of productive work or to crafts. These people are usually found to be calmer and more collected. This is because, while engaging in a certain activity the subconscious mind tends to organize the persons thoughts.

Even though I would always like to have friends around, it is sometimes necessary to spend some time on our own as well.
