What makes solitude different from loneliness?

I've been travelling and enjoying my own company, motor crossing, hiking, trekking, island hopping all doing these things I'm not allowed to do all alone.

  • Many people travel to get away from themselves, their life, or something else. Therefore when they are there, the mindset is different until they return. The difference they more fully live in the moment when they are away because they aren't trying to escape.

    Solitude is surrender, loneliness is resistance.

  • Your journey sounds nice. Maybe whenever you get home. You miss the nature and adventure. You experienced and saw beauty. And now you miss it. But the good news, is you have a home, bed and a roof over your head. And you can rest. And start another journey. 🙂
