People are afraid of being alone.  Why is that?  You can be in a room full of people, in a marriage, or a friendship and still be alone.  Being alone is not the same as being lonely.  When we spend time alone it is an opportunity to enjoy our own company.  The question then becomes, do we like our own company?  It is only when we accept and find joy in who and what we are that the fear of being alone dissolves.  Being alone is time well spent.  It is a time to sort out, refresh, and reboot ourselves.  It is a time to be selfish and self-centered.  Imagine that, giving ourselves permission to put our own needs and wants first.  A wonderful thought that we need to put into practice!
