6 Amazing Things You Learn When You Embrace Being Alone
1. You learn to seek your own approval.
When you learn to enjoy being alone, suddenly the approval of everyone else doesn't matter much to you. The only person you need to please is yourself. So seek your own approval, not the approval of others.
2. You learn to feel your feelings.
In solitude, you can't cover up the emotions you have. You have to learn to fully feel your feelings. When you do, you'll be more emotionally intelligent than before and handle yourself in a way you never knew was possible.
3. You learn to enjoy being with people more.
When you aren't always clogging your life up with social interactions, some you don't even want to have, and learn to enjoy being alone, you also learn to enjoy being with people all the more.
4. You learn what activities you truly enjoy.
When you separate yourself from others more than you usually are, you learn to do things you enjoy doing, not necessarily your group. Suddenly you realize that you've got a whole host of talents and interests you didn't know you had.
5. You learn to be productive.
Without external social cues and requirements, you learn how to be truly productive on your own. This makes time for time to learn new skills and understand yourself more.
6. You learn to relax.
Once you're no longer wound up about the expectations of others, you learn to truly relax. It's nice, isn't it?
