The skill and value of being alone

(05/02/16 6:11am)

"Alone" is a pretty taboo word. People don't like it. They associate it with bad things: lonely, isolation and, of course, #foreveralone. For a while, I made those same connections. But in just this year, I've decided that spending time alone isn't all bad. It's actually a pretty valuable skill to hone. Now, I'm not saying that you should cut yourself off from any and all access to humankind. I merely suggest that you take some time, wherever and whenever, for yourself, and only yourself.
