Sometimes solitude is the best medicine.
These days it is so easy to stay connected; phones, tablets etc mean that most of us are online most of the time. Meeting people in the flesh is replaced by a brief chat on a status. Despite this contact being virtual, it means that we are constantly in contact with others. Sometimes it is nice to just switch off and be totally alone.
I’ve always preferred solitude to the company of others. That is not to say that I don’t enjoy being with other people, more that if I spend time in others company socially for too long then I get worn out, for want of a better expression.
