How to be alone

I came across this video on someone elses blog (can't remember whose) quite a while ago and I really liked it. Stumbled across it again today and thought I'd share. The woman has written a poem about being alone and I think it's awesome. To be honest, I sometimes find that the more time I spend with other people the more I want to just be on my own. I find spending a long time with other people who aren't my family can be really tiring. Does anyone else get this or am I just abnormal..?

Anyway, here's the video:

I'm the same way, I get really tired out with too much "interaction." I don't think you're the only one. One thing I read is that this is what is behind so called "introverts" vs. "extroverts," that is introverts need to be alone to "recharge" their energy while extroverts recharger their energy by being in the company of others. This is the book which has some tips in managing this too (it is one of the few that doesn't paint introversion as a "bad" thing to be corrected): "The Introvert Advantage."

qatheworld: Interesting comment! I also find that introversion is portrayed as a negative thing, I really don't know why :/ Might check out the book, thanks!

Mariam: Hmm I see what you mean but just because you're with other people doesn't mean you're not going to get bored, right?

Salam x
