…I have always been independent, I get it from my Mom, and I must say I love and treasure my alone time. I don't need to be constantly socializing like other people, and I am starting to accept that more and more.
I adore peace and quiet, and I think that is one of the reasons why I love cats so much. I love their spirit of peacefulness & independence.
I thought I would share this sweet and smart little eastern canadian short film about “How to be Alone”.
These are a few of my favourite quotes on being alone:
**When we cannot bear to be alone, it means we do not properly value the only companion we will have from birth to death—ourselves. –Eda LeShan**
**People who need people are threatened by people who don’t. The idea of seeking contentment alone is heretical, for society steadfastly decrees that our completeness lies in others. –Lionel Fisher, Celebrating Time Alone: Stories of Splendid Solitude**
**A man can be himself alone so long as he is alone … if he does not love solitude, he will not love freedom; for it is only when he is alone that he is really free. –Arthur Schopenhauer, The World as Will and Idea**
