“Solitude is painful when one is young, but delightful when one is more mature.”
This is just what I needed to hear today! Albert Einstein, you are a genius! 😂
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. 😊
