We live in a culture that inundates us with the internet, movies, music, television, and cell phones. You can’t go to an auto repair shop without there being a television in the waiting room; same with a hospital. You can’t walk through an empty grocery store without music being played on the intercoms. Ask yourself this; when is the last time you were alone. I mean completely alone, no internet, no movies, no music, no television, and no cell phone? A time when no other human can be seen or heard? Alone time is time for reflection, time to think, time to rejuvenate, to become alive again. There is no time like time alone. It’s a necessity.
I think it’s good for a person to spend time alone. It gives them an opportunity to discover who they are and to figure out why they are always alone.
