Alone

I’m big on quotes. This one I don’t quite get, though. I don’t consider myself a “loner”, per se, but I really don’t ever feel lonely. I’ve never craved human contact. I enjoy interacting with people whether it’s family or strangers, but I do not have a strong desire to be around people. When I first learned of the Four Noble Truths and attachment, I immediately felt relief knowing that I could control my own happiness. I love a great many people, but I believe that absence makes the heart grow fonder.

When I have moments of solitude, I cherish them. I use them for my own reflection and thought. I’ve always thought that if you have issues with being lonely, then you have issues with yourself. If I were to redo the above quote it might say, “I like to be alone and I’m never lonely.”
