I’m an introvert, so I LOVE being alone. (And I need it to recharge, too.)
But whether you’re an introvert or not, we ALL have times when we want to be on our own and withdraw from the world, if only for a little while.
This is not always understood by people around us.
Others can think you’re selfish, or anti-social, or worry about you being depressed and urge you to go out.
These judgments can make you question your need for alone time.
But sometimes, you feel this need to be alone because you’re called to turn inwards.
You’re called to connect on a deeper level with your soul, with your heart, with your desires, with the universe, All That Is, and your purpose.
This is part of your spiritual growth.
It’s a part that requires quiet reflection and introspection.
It’s a process that needs you to be alone so you can focus deeply on your own inner world without getting distracted by the outside world.
If you feel called to withdraw and be left alone, follow that call.
There’s a reason for it.
There are things to explore in your inner world.
It’s time to focus on your connection with YOU and not let the noise and busyness of others and everyday life disturb you.
For some, it’s enough to meditate and journal for a bit and decline the invitation to a party.
Others need to be on their own for a longer period of time. That’s been the case for me several times in my life.
Whatever you feel called to:
Listen as best you can.
You’re not being anti-social.
You’re not being selfish.
Your soul is letting you know that there are things in your inner world that need your attention.
