News articles

I do wonder about these articles when they’re discussing things close to ones heart. I can take it in any manner of ways they wish to say it. But the article is aimed squarely at the person who likes the idea of solitude and therefore reads it with a positive bent as opposed to an open mind or a negative bent even 🙂

  1. Solitude is Healthy. Of course. Many things are, in moderation. But it depends on the person of course. And extrovert would prefer crowds to charge but needs some solitude occasionally. An introvert would crave solitude most days but would occasionally like to go out.
  2. Solitude is productive. A personal peev of mine. Equally I could state the above but on a personal level, I’m not interested in being productive. In achieving goals and working to the best of my ability. I have no interest in work other than the money I receive in order to use that for things that I’m interested in. If I had the money, I would not work. But it has to appeal and people feel they need to be productive in their daily lives in order to feel they have achieved something. When I look at this I see how pointless it all is.
  3. Solitude is empowering. Well I really don’t understand this one too well. I can see what they’re getting at but solitude is solitude. When I meet other people after being alone for a while, as much as I can be, I realise why I wanted to be alone in the first place. I suppose in that sense it is empowering. Not necessarily how the author describes it though.

Life is what it is, I guess.
