When you’re comfortable with yourself being alone is a lot more fun. You will still want to spend time with others here and there, but overall you’ll enjoy time spent on your own.

There is great power in being comfortable enough with yourself to spend time on your own. While not everyone will find this comfort those who do know how special it can be. The more you get to know yourself the more unique your experience on this planet will be. 

There are in this world some things that can only be uncovered when you’re alone. Below I am going to go over some benefits of embracing your time alone and how it can help you grow as a person. If you’re struggling with finding your own sense of independence or unsure of how to move forth on your own perhaps these things could help give you the motivation you need.

7 Powerful Things You Will Find When You Embrace Being Alone:

1. You realize who you actually want to be around and who isn’t that important.

When you are spending time on your own you will find that there are some people you miss like crazy and others you don’t miss at all. You come to terms with who is and is not important in your life. Instead of wasting all of your time surrounding yourself with meaningless connections you come to find that there are some people you could do without entirely.

2. You find a sense of peace.

The more time you spend on your own the more peace you will find. Sure, at first you might be uncomfortable but the better you get to know yourself the more fun you will have. You will be able to do whatever you want and won’t have to deal with anyone else’s input.

3. You figure out what things you actually like to do.

Rather than doing things you don’t want to do, you will only have to do things you want to do. You make your own decisions and get to pick and choose between what you find interesting and what you’re completely not about at all. You come to understand yourself better in a big way through being alone.

4. You find more time to relax and de-stress.

Instead of being stressed all the time you are able to meditate and relax without interruption. You aren’t forced to deal with people coming and going. This allows maximum decompression in some of the best possible ways.

5. You become more aware of how to spend your time productively.

When you’re on your own you don’t have to worry about other people popping in and slowing you down. You have time to get things done and often more motivation as well. You’re able to get a lot more done when it’s just you and your thoughts.

6. You begin to understand that your opinions of yourself matters more than the opinions of others.

The more time you spend with yourself the more you come to understand how you feel about yourself. You stop obsessing over the things others think and begin to see the value in your opinion of yourself. Other people aren’t going to be there in the end, but you will.

7. You become more willing to embrace your feelings.

The more time you spend with yourself and your thoughts the more you will be tuned in to your own feelings. You don’t have to worry about showing weakness around someone else because you’re the only one there. You are free to express yourself properly.
