Opinion: Positive Traits of People Who Are Happy Being Alone?

Being alone is not the same thing as being lonely.

And, being alone is not for the faint of heart.

There are some brave ones who love and value spending time alone. They do so not because they are lonely, but because they desire to make positive changes and recharge their batteries. Spending time alone demands that the "loner" be an individual who is for the most part secure within themselves and is generally content with their lives and/or their achievements.

These are people who possess a healthy sense of self. While the non-loner may look upon the loner with an air of pity and curiosity psychology says true loners are people who embrace and value their time alone.

I can relate as my best companion is myself. And those who love being alone say when they are alone, they feel very relaxed and have no problem being completely alone. As a matter of fact, they embrace any time in which they find themselves alone. Those who love to spend their time alone feel no discomfort in their aloneness and feel they are actually better the longer they remain alone.

Exploring your mind says that by being alone, you --

1. Are your own best friends and have proven to be good friends to others.

2. Are loyal and make good companions.

3. Are great conversationalists once they get to know you.

4. Are not afraid of being single.

5. Are not easily hurt or offended by the small stuff.

6. Have no problems being single and take your time to find your forever person.

7. Know yourself and are extremely self-aware and empathetic.

I consider being a loner a superpower. It affords one the time to deeply consider their own thoughts, feelings, and desires. It allows you to critically think about life from varying points of view.

Loners are generally introverts who hate drama and are at their most productive when they are alone. Loners are often empaths and crowded spaces drain you with the many emotions of too many. So, if you are a loner at heart, you are most likely a strong person with clear boundaries on who you are and how you plan to live your life.

Keep enjoying that alone time, be yourself, and stay strong.
