Being around people, different activities, hustle, and bustle of the streets all the time can make you feel lonelier at the end of the day.Living by people’s comments, approval in all things can make you feel a personal rejection of yourself at the end of the day.

Solitude is an act of taking time off to be with yourself and also to feel comfortable with yourself.

Bill Gates takes two weeks every year which he calls the Think Week in order to birth new ideas.
He escapes into a clapboard cabin by himself in a Cedar Forest in order to think innovation.

Solitude is not loneliness as this signifies that just as you have relationships with others you can also have a relationship with yourself.

This is a time where you aim and work hard towards growing a relationship with yourself, which is very important because a great relationship with yourself breeds a better relationship with others.

Solitude is where new innovations are birthed, solitude breaks down barriers, solitude makes you decide on decisions without influences..

Setting time aside can help you reflect on your goals, dreams, and aspirations.

  • Solitude helps to get to know yourself better.
  • Solitude breeds creativity and productivity.
  • Solitude improves your state of relationship with others.
  • Solitude helps you to be comfortable with yourself.

If you must grow, you must embrace solitude.
