Why is it important to spend time with yourself?

If you’re just thinking that everyone who likes solitude is a weirdo, you’re wrong because time spent alone can be very beneficial for anyone and often has that calming effect that helps us get back into balance.

In addition to those who love solitude, there are also people who are afraid of it. The fear of loneliness is in itself unpleasant and most often leads a person to the situation of constantly looking for the company of other people and thus leaves him without the possibility of choice, since the constant hunger for others can exclude the selection of those who really suit the person and lead him to companies that are not for him at all and they are not pleasant.

What is at the root of the fear of loneliness is that many people perceive loneliness as scary, gloomy and difficult. However, it does not have to be and is not like that.

Many people spend a lot of time in their day alone because they want to. This does not mean that people who spend time alone are very lonely. Loneliness does not have to have absolutely anything to do with the feeling of loneliness, because people feel loneliness when they miss the company of people close to them.

In solitude, an individual does not need to be with others, and solitude is then usually a free choice. The time that is spent in this way can be very well spent because it leaves room for self-care and activities that the person enjoys.

While spending time alone, people usually deal with their inner world. Then they have time to think in peace about all previous events during the day and maybe make some important decisions.

On the other hand, spending time “alone” can also be in the function of rest and relaxation. There are those who consider time in solitude to be the best possible vacation. For them, solitude does not have to mean literal physical distance from others. For them, a kind of psychological withdrawal from others is enough because those few moments when they “switch off”, even in the presence of others, are important for them because it helps them collect their thoughts or maybe find a solution to the problems they have.

No matter how sociable someone is, sometimes it’s still important to be alone. Time in solitude is time for oneself and it is the right and need of every person to have it. It can be a sign of how much attention a person pays to himself and how important it is for him to listen to his inner being.

At a time when time for oneself is getting less and less, sometimes it is necessary to stop and be alone for a while, because during this time a person can reconnect with himself and once again realize those primordial needs of his inner being. That time usually doesn’t have to be long because spending days and hours in solitude, no matter how introverted you may be, is not good for both your physical and mental health in the long run.
