Think of solitude as a necessity. You need it to flourish as a human being.

Solitude is valuable for everyone. Everyone needs time away from people or anything that will give them input. This allows a person to reflect on themself and their values. It can benefit them in multiple ways such as allowing them to solve hard problems. It also gives you a break from a busy day.


  1. What is solitude?
    Solitude is not a physical separation from people but rather the separation of input that will cloud your mind. This input might be from people, music, news, or books. It has nothing to do with the environment.
  2. Why is solitude valuable?
    It is valuable because it will give you insight and the emotional balance that comes from unhurried self-reflection. It acts as a form of liberation from the cognitive oppression that results in its absence.
