Solitude Is Sometimes The Best Medicine because it gives you time alone to collect your thoughts and get your bearings. So often we get so lost in other people that we lose our own identity in the process. Only by getting some quiet time to reflect re-energize and re-focus can we recover from that lost sense of self. On the other hand you have to also be mindful of not completely isolating yourself from the rest of the world when you need help to sort things out. So always remember to take care of self first because no one is going to love you more than you can love yourself.
