Day Two

Prompt: Do you need solitude?

Like flowers need the rain to grow!

I didn’t realize this necessity until recently, when I truly began discovering myself. Growing up, when I was in trouble, my mother would send me to my room, or to sit on the steps. Truth be told, and thank God she didn’t know this, I didn’t mind! Nooooo, I didn’t misbehave to intentionally isolate myself.

A few years ago, I was reading about Personality types, types of people, and such ways that help one identify who he or she is. I tested to be an INFJ, commonly Introverted, and an Empath.

The terminology can be confusing; I was initially! In simple terms though, I’m someone who feels emotional and sometimes physical energy of others. When I walk out my door, everyone around me absorbs my energy, and I absorb his/hers. A simple split second of eye contact can tell me things about an individual, and no words are spoken.

Though I’d never exchange my gifts for others, I am easily exhausted. Everything that stimulates the senses, overstimulates mine.

I find solitude because I know I need it. I can’t neglect myself, and I won’t. Usually, I find restoration around bodies of water. I live by Lake Erie 🙂 I also enjoy walks in our Metroparks, sitting at home and writing, and visiting attractions on less busy days.

When I’m by myself, I also take pictures. Photography makes me feel good about myself 🙂
