Best solutions to a clear mind


  1. Someone told me if you want to succeed you must be alone and feel lonely thats when you can make right choices in life e.g the kings in order for them to make right decision they were isolating themselves thanks fot the article

  2. Definitely a great advice to give to a person who have issue with this but I am glad that me being alone or not is not my problem and I am happy being alone most of the time.

  3. I agree that if you feel lonely you should interact with people but sometimes is easier said than done. For someone that is an introvert would be very hard to leave the house and make friends or talk to strangers.

  4. Now and then, I do feel loneliness because I am alone by myself in my apartment in the weekend (trying to recharge from working with kids all week). But then, I find activities to do that help me find new friends. Loneliness is not a bad thing if you learn to deal with it with small doses.

  5. Loneliness can be very unhealthy if it is too much. Being an introvert, I love solitude but sometimes it gets over my head.

  6. Yeah I agree it can be taxing i.e. loneliness, its difficult to get friends who can guard your back and also near and dear ones..have seen some very tough times. Thanks to my family and wife now I am packed with people around now 🙂 I am ever grateful to my wife for being such an wonderful partner in life to me…:-) thanks for such an post, brings back a lot of memories in me…:-)

  7. Thank you for sharing. It is very important to learn how to open up to people but also enjoy spending time alone with ourselves and our own thoughts.

  8. There are different kinds of loneliness and the one that is destructive is for sure needs to be taken care of. Kind loving people around is the best remedy.

  9. I totally agree.. When you love what you are doing then that means you are in the right path. Life is short to let loneliness lead you.
