The Happiness Of Being Just With Ourselves Is A Therapy That We Need Every Once In Awhile.

It is hard to explain why our lives become monotonous. Is it because of traffic, noise, continuous interaction with hundreds of people, WhatsApp, Facebook or any other messenger or calling app. Everything materialistic in the world has overcrowded our lives so much that, our brain gets fried often trying to cope up with all of it.

When was the last time you sat in silence and thought about your life, when no one interrupted you, when you were wandering in the universe of your thoughts and traveled so far that you lost the track of time? Can’t remember, can you? But I bet that you want it, at least some people do. Some people know that being alone and lonely are completely different things and they know how to embrace solitude.
