The beauty of being alone

“I like to show women who exist in solitude but do not suffer,” Candelas said. “They are not depressed or crying. Rather [they] are safe, exalting in the sense of enjoying the company of just herself.”

“Of course, that’s not what we generally assume. Being alone often has a sad stigma attached to it, with some researchers going so far as to say too much alone time could actually be deadly (because some researchers are drama queens) because humans need a certain amount of social interaction. Yet plenty of people swear by how much pleasure doing things alone can bring, with some research suggesting it could actually be good for us.”
