To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.

― Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper.

    This is not necessarily true. Sometimes loners are creative people that have little time for the social aspect of life. Sometimes they live in an area that has very little if any ways to meet people. Loners often long for companionship and to make new friends but have little opportunity. Some of these posts make my eyebrows curl because they are so one sided.

      I agree! I am a loner, but when I do venture out of my little world I meet some amazing people. Some become part of my life, some part of a moment that becomes just a memory. I create, and I like to be alone when I do, no distractions. I also like to be alone with my thoughts sometimes, and I do enjoy the solitude. This quote is one-sided, but I think I understand the feeling of this kind of loner.

    i love to be alone. I do not feel lonely! I need the alone time to be able to face my stressful life. I am the CEO of a company of About 160 people. I am a mother of 3 grown children and a wife. I am also a care giver and guardian of my 80 year old mother and a mentally handicapped brother. I have so many people depending on me, that being alone for days is a privilege.

    I am a loner as described here. I love people, but just like Rhondalee above. She described me perfectly:)

    If we are loners, it is because people have forced us to become loners. It is one of many reasons why people join gangs because they have been rejected by mainstream society because of the political, social, economic, racial, religious, and ethnic backgrounds
