I tell you, if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it's not because they enjoy solitude. It's because they have tried to blend into the world before and people keep disappointing them. Solitude is the act of being alone or by oneself.
Many people enjoy solitude but it's because there's no actual fun person they would rather hang out with. Solitude is fine but you would need someone you could tell that solitude is fine. Being alone can save you from a lot of trouble, but you would always feel that something is missing.
You stay at home, your room preferably, with just your phone or maybe a book and that's just it. You don't want to talk to anyone or do anything, you just want to be on your own, in your own space, not having to face the world.
Being alone has never felt right. It feels good but not right.
They say that the more powerful and original a mind, the more inclined it is towards solitude. Most people's imagination functions better when they don't have to speak to people. You find yourself being smart and doing the things you never would have done in front of people.
Solitude can be caused by many things but one is when you've been hurt by someone dear to you, you could say, you've been hurt by your companion. You want to lock out everyone, mourn and just be alone. At that point, you see everyone as toxic and life seems better without anyone.
Solitude shouldn't be a normalcy for anyone. It's good to have some alone time once in a while, but not all the time. From a distance, some people may seem so uptight and the person may look unapproachable. That way, people jump to conclusions and as such, the person is left in his or her solitude.
Personally, I like being on my own. I like the peace and quiet that comes with solitude. That doesn't mean that if people who I could talk to and have fun with come around, I will still continue in my solitude, nope! I'd jump right into the ocean that holds good communication.
Solitude is the opposite of companionship. Solitude can also be defined as isolation. Who would want to be in isolation? Would you? You're probably just hurt or can't blend in. If you're hurt, solitude won't be the answer. Go out, take a walk, free your head, makes friends. If you can't blend in then stand out and be unique.
