Solitude definitely help you decide things, without jumping into some emotional stressful thinking. Also you can tell who you are when there are two people. That's when you learn if you are kind, can love, are humble, have empathy, are compassionate, ect... eva 2044 days ago
I love solitude sometimes. I'm not sure I can completely discover who I am in solitude, though. I believe we are designed to be in relationship . . . with God and with other people. I think relationship is essential to our development as human beings. I believe we do need some solitude to reflect on who we are, but we also need to be able to hear how others see us. Of course, they do not always give us an accurate assessment, but we have trouble assessing ourselves accurately, too.
There is One who accurately assesses us . . . God! We draw close to God when we seek Him, both in our moments of solitude and when we are with others. He is the one who can help us discover who we really are.
