Home Alone

Growing up an only child, turning into a introvert as an adult, being home alone for extended periods of time is no big deal for me. But in this time of a national health scare, many people are trying it out for the first time. Or maybe they are home with family and it’s not as much fun as they’d hope.

I go for walks, play Words with Friends, listen to audio books, watch TV. Sometimes I even clean the house. The days are full, not empty. I hope you feel the same way.

  1. Being alone isn’t the problem. I’m an introverted extrovert and can stay at home alone as I’ve been doing for many years. It’s the extrovert side that needs a human connection. Add to that my daily walks. I find not going for one more difficult to bear than staying home alone.

  2. Adjusting my attitude about this sheltering at home took time until I finally accepted its protective purpose for all of us., Being half extrovert and half introvert means half my needs are being put on hold. But I reach out by writing emails, texts and writing cards to those who come to mind. This extra time alone makes it possible to do a lot more reading and thoughtful praying for others, asking God to bless the inflicted and those who are helping them, and lately asking for people to come to know Him more through this, and asking for us to be brave.
