While some people are outgoing and can't seem to go without company, there are some of us who would much rather cancel our plans to be alone.
Eusebius McKaiser asked listeners which they prefer and if being alone means you are lonely?
Caller, Lindiwe says she is currently going through a divorce and while her son is away on holiday with is dad, she is enjoying the solitude.
Time alone for me is actually more spiritual because I use it to meditate, to write my thoughts down. It helps me become a more grounded person.— Lindiwe, caller
Lucky says he has learned to enjoy his alone time, with age.
I think as you grow older you prefer or enjoy more of your alone time than when you are younger, however I think it depends mostly on whether or not the loneliness is as a result of a choice or circumstance.— Lucky, caller
Here is what people had to say on Twitter.
@Eusebius I enjoy being alone because I have a lot to think about, my thoughts keep me busy.— KhayaWamoAfrica (@caiusmmetle) July 6, 2018
I enjoy my own company so much that I cancel plans just so I can be alone at my place or actually go out and do things alone. Love it. @Eusebius— Nkosi (@nkosi___) July 6, 2018
@Radio702 @Eusebius I tried calling in, Mava didn't pick up. Time alone is essential (and is not loneliness) if one is to truly get in touch with their feelings, which is a vital ingredient of emotional intelligence.— Victor Kgomoeswana (@VictorAfrica) July 6, 2018
