Why Do We Find Deserted and Lonely Places Appealing?

Hi, Steemians!

It doesn’t matter if a person is introverted or extroverted, because if given the opportunity, we would all welcome a bit of loneliness and quiet from time to time.

The fact that introverted people usually seek solitude does not mean that extroverted souls do not need a little bit of that too.

The fact that almost everyone feels an inner desire to be alone sometimes is an important indication of one of our most important needs.

Today, we are going to talk about this need for solitude.

I once found myself walking on the beachside, thinking about more thoughts than one is supposed to think about.

I suddenly realized that I was all alone on that beach. I looked to my east and there was no one. I looked to my west and saw that no living soul was there with me.

Suddenly, a strange sensation sank in my heart. I was alone. And it was well. All my thoughts and troubles suddenly left me. I was left with a melancholic mental state that filled me with peace and quiet.

I then started thinking about all the thoughts that were lost to me for years. It was one of the best experiences of my entire life.

That was the day I realized the importance of solitude and connecting with nature.

It must have happened to you too. Have you ever found yourself in an empty playground, or a deserted courtyard, on a cold winter day?

With an obscured sun and the cold in the air, solitude is one of the greatest sensations anyone can ever hope to feel and understand.

The reason we love lonely places is because they give us a chance to reflect on our life in the quiet of our own mind and presence.

It is easy to lose yourself when other people are around, but when you are alone, the whole of space and time is at your beck and call.

Reaching a higher understanding of life and self is one of our greatest needs and desires. Lonely places give us the space for that sensational transcendence to occur.

That is why there is often something really appealing about lonely and deserted places. The ruins of an old castle or endless fields of wheat is where this great desire comes to life.

It is in such places where you finally feel a certain disconnect from the world around.

And I must say, we really need such experiences. It is so easy to lose yourself in the daily routine of our society.

These places give you an opportunity to find yourself again and breathe the fresh air of nature.

This is not to say that we actively need to seek solitude in places like this. But it is important to understand the significance of our inner need for loneliness from time to time.

If you feed this inner desire, it will take flight into higher horizons of understanding.

It is there where you will find your identity.

A BIG HUG!
