Garbo is famous for saying, "I want to be alone." Later she said, "I never said 'I want to be alone,' I only said I want to be left alone.'"
Either way, I can relate. Sometimes I crave solitude more than I crave chocolate. A few hours alone energizes me and helps me cope with the unrelenting demands of family and work. Carving that time out of my schedule is difficult, but necessary for me.
How about you? Do enjoy solitude or does being alone make you uneasy?
