I saw this and thought, we should talk about it...
For a lot of young people and singles across the world, this may be the first time in a while that they are confronted with being alone. It is like being on a retreat, where you have a lot of time to reflect on your thoughts.
The effects of being alone can be quite wide ranging. The last five years or so I have lived in a deliberately simple lifestyle without a lot of social contact, I felt the need for solitude and it was good for me to combine it with a study of Buddhism. But I have noticed that it helps to work on yourself in this period, it helps to have a focus. It stopped bothering me after a year or so.
I came across this piece on loneliness, maybe it helps some...
What are your experiences with being alone? What advice would you give on the subject in the time of coronavirus?
