I’m the kind of person….

“I’m the kind of person who likes to be by himself. To put a finer point on it, I’m the type of person who doesn’t find it painful to be alone. I find spending an hour or two every day running alone, not speaking to anyone, as well as four or five hours alone at my desk, to be neither difficult nor boring. I’ve had this tendency ever since I was young, when, given a choice, I much preferred reading books on my own or concentrating on listening to music over being with someone else. I could always think of things to do by myself.”

                                    – Haruki Murakami, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running

I felt as though this was meant for me, after I Am an introvert who does not speake much, but enjoys my time to myself.

    Interesting words. I experienced both, loneliness and a period when I was always surrounded by many people.

    I think the balance is the right thing here as it is the right thing in so many other fields of our lives. You must know how to think alone, you must be able to focus on your thoughts every now and then to find out if you are doing well. To see if you are loyal to your life rules.

    However, you must be also able to live in the crowd, to talk with people. This is a big and useful stimuli for our brains as we are searching with words to pick up and which sentences to create from these words when we are with others.
