“In solitude mind gains strength and learns to lean upon itself”
“Loneliness is marked by a sense of isolation. Solitude, on the other hand, is a state of being alone without being lonely and can lead to self-awareness.”
Once upon a time, a Greek sage in the ancient times was asked, “What is difficult?” His reply was, “To know Yourself”
Our view of our inner self does not come naturally, compared to how easily we perceive the external environment. It also requires humility to bridge the gap between how we think we are and how we are in reality.
Solitude gives you a feeling that you know yourself, more than anyone knows you, and takes you away from the herd mentality. It equips you with knowledge and the necessary qualities to achieve personal development and success. Spending time alone for at least 20 minutes each day offers you the clarity and space you need to grow yourself independently. It gives you an introspection on who you are and what you want. And understanding your thoughts, actions and reactions gives you the power to have utmost control over your life.
