Day 8: Learn to enjoy solitude.
I actually got a lot of time to practice this today. I had some nice time alone in the apartment to just watch TV and rest, and then even more time later on while I was making dinner.
Solitude has never been hard for me – if I want to be alone. But if I really don’t want to be alone, it actually effects me a lot. So it’s definitely something that I’m working on. I think, at least in the beginning, getting used to being alone is easy if you have something to do. Reading, cooking, etc – something to really focus on. And I tend to like background noise. But this is something trying to work on moving forward. Solitude to me means actually being by myself, and not needing something to fill the void of people.
Like everything else, it’s a process.
