If you want to be more deeply connected, spend time alone.
That’s not a fact, underpinned by research. It’s a reflection. An anecdote. But it may have value.
If you came to me and said – I feel empty, or – as if something is missing – if you complained about feeling blocked or stagnant or that negative drama (gossip, shouting, pointing the finger) made you feel more alive – I would say: think about spending some more time alone.
That’s regardless of being an extravert, introvert, or even ambivert (think happy middle ground).
These are just personality types.
The value of being alone transcends categories. It’s a deliberate practice of not seeking someone (or something) other to fill you up. I believe it’s a deep human need, as vital as connection.
