Quote from: MariannaFor some reason it is scary and difficult (though I encourage myself greatly) to say "no".
Quote from: DebSome people can find solitude and inner peace in a crowd.
Quote from: Marianna Vladimir touched on solitude and aloneness in his health post https://speakingofseth.com/index.php?topic=939.msg8548#msg8548 but I decided to start a new one, since it is a different subject. I do not have Vladimir's experience of living alone in the forest, yet, for several years I have been shaping my life, schedules, and relationships so as to create long periods of solitude uninterrupted by calls, mail, meetings, visits. I noticed that so much of the needed work (creative, 'talking to yourself', getting ideas from inside/from Universe, etc.) happens when I am alone and no interruption is in sight. Most difficult for me by far - is saying 'no' to my loved ones, 'training' them to be respectful of my wishes - not to be distracted. Yet, I've been most successful in things that involve me alone. I've cut newsletters and personal emails to a very low number. I've 'moved' all my close friends to mail from social media. This way I avoid this black hole of distraction. I don't watch tv or read newspapers (and yet I know what's going on and who's the president, imagine that?) . As for movies, I stream them from Netflix or amazon when it's convenient for me. You know yourself, though it's not obvious, that if you have many hobbies, Seth, creative work, etc. you'd love to do - something has to go. There should be adjustments. For some reason it is scary and difficult (though I encourage myself greatly) to say "no". To say "it used to work, but not anymore, I need 'me' time', and I do love you". You do it gradually with relationships you want to keep. It is just a matter of getting used to a new setup. And surprisingly it is working. I am determined to keep changing the setup. It is an exciting challenge, after all. And you get frustrated only seldom, and momentarily, and it's also fine. You can do a lot in any situation, and still remain true to yourself. Just keep the picture of life you are creating in mind.
