Solitude: Painful and Delightful #AlbertEintstein #Inspiration


“Solitude is painful when one is young, but delightful when one is more mature.”
-Albert Einstein

This is just what I needed to hear today! Albert Einstein, you are a genius! πŸ˜‚

So this is such a wonderful perspective. It reminds of when I was married and feeling sometimes like if I could just be single again and have time to myself. Now that I am single, the pendulum can often swing back the other way. I wish there was someone to talk to or to do stuff with around me.

What I am learning since the separation and through the divorce process is that it is good for me to be comfortable being by myself, being alone, and being okay with that. This is definitely a part of the maturation process of every adult. Being okay with loneliness. This is a wonderful skill to grow in and cultivate.

Being alone gives you time and space to reflect on your life, on your decisions, on the path that you are on, and then to subsequently decide whether that is where you want to be, what you want to do, and if there are some required changes that need to occur to re-align your needs and wants with your life goals.

I hope you all are continuing to grow in this important quality, let me know your thoughts in the comments below. 😊

  1. Yup. In a world that’s always rushing around at break-neck speed like we’ve got some sort of life or death crisis, taking time to be still and reflect and commune with the Most High is soooo important! Plus, we just miss a lot of things when we have our eyes shut and we’re constantly busy πŸ™‚ Love this!!!

  2. Jason, thanks for sharing your personal reflections along with Einstein’s quote. Being 63 years old, I have become more patient with my new life as a retiree who now spends some of his day writing and blogging. There is much that awaits all of us as we mature.

  3. When we chose to be alone, may be it’s enjoyable to spend time with oneself. But when solitude is imposed upon us , by a divorce or the separation of two spouses, then solitude must be very painful 😣
