A friend of mine posted this on his Instagram page. It was one of those quotes that spoke directly to my soul. I love people and enjoy social interaction so much. However, I love being alone just as much. Being alone is the time I regenerate. It is the way I heal myself.
People laugh when I tell them I am a social introvert. It’s funny but it is so true. I think true extroverts prefer company when going through a hardship. Introverts like me like to spend time alone, often in nature, and let whatever grieves us clear on its own.
Some people ask me what I do when I am alone. They are usually the extroverts that find it hard to understand why I often turn down great invitations to instead sit with myself and be still. So here is what I do when I am alone:
- Play guitar
- Write songs
- Creating videos
- Watching documentaries on Netflix
And write some more!
So if sometimes I disappear for awhile, don’t worry. I’m just off creating in my own little world of wonder. And when I come back, I do my best to share all that wonder with you!
