Often when people see you aloof or alone, they think that you are going through some trauma or are in depression and you would receive all kinds of sympathies. But that’s not always the reason to be alone. Sometimes being alone is a pleasure which is not understood by many. Also being alone gives you ample amount of time to think and analyze over lot of situations and make better decisions in life. So next time you see somebody alone, don’t feel pity, may be they are just trying to figure out themselves and their life and are happy being in that state. It doesn’t mean they will always be in that state forever.
Here are your 5 Lessons
1. Get in touch with your own emotions
when you’re surrounded by other people all the time, you’re constantly trying to read, and cater to, the other persons’s emotions. So much so, that you could end up losing touch with your own. When you start to enjoy being alone, you’ll gain a greater perspective for your own emotions. You’ll create a deeper understanding of what makes you happy, what upsets you, and what saddens you. With that knowledge, it’s then easier to regulate your emotions. But it all starts with understanding how you feel, and that comes from a little bit of solitude.
2. More Productive at Work
Being in the company of other people can be fun and entertaining, but it can also seriously affect your productivity. There are times when the company of other people acts as nothing more than a distraction from getting your work done.
Once you enjoy being alone, you’ll feel more confident in your ability to actually be alone. And that naturally leads to you feeling more independent. You’ll no longer feel that anxiety, or burning desire for company, once you learn to enjoy being alone. You won’t feel the need for constant interaction with other people, or the anxiety associated with looking around and seeing no one but yourself.
4. You will stop looking for Approvals from others
So often we feel we the need to get the “OK” from our friends and family before we take action. We constantly look to other people for advice on what we should do next. Of course, there are times where it’s not only perfectly acceptable to ask for advice, but downright necessary. But there are also times where we’re perfectly capable of acting on our own, but we instead of look to others for an answer.
When you’re constantly in the company of other people, you’re always making compromises in order to find solutions that the entire group can enjoy. And unfortunately, the things you want most, may not always line up with what the group wants. So it’s easy to enjoy being alone once you realize that doing so gives you more freedom to do the things you actually want to do.
