Solitude, they say, is freeing. They say it’s empowering. Solitude has been glorified over time, as strength, as an accomplishment, as a quality.

Solitude, in truth, is just a safety net. An empty place devoid of all our demons, very different demons for each of us. For some, it’s as small as unwanted attention while for some, it’s a giant, evil head with blood dripping tongue and curved, pointy horns waiting to catch us within it’s claws as soon as we begin to weep.

For others, it’s all that and some more.
