Today in this post, I’m going to share my opinion on the question “Is it possible to be alone and happy?” For some people, being alone may be a nightmare for them. They can’t live a single second without a partner.

They always need someone to whom they can talk and share their thoughts and feelings. However, do you know that some people are there who, enjoy loneliness and they don’t need anyone?

They are rarely seen in public places. You may say that they are obsessed with being alone. They love their own company.

However, a fact states, “Being alone for a long time may lead to depression.” However, If it’s true then how some people spend most time alone and are still healthy and happy?

Enjoying our own company is not as easy as playing marbles. If you’re a regular reader then you might have noticed that I have used the word “Mindset” In most of the posts.

Here, your mindset plays an important role, your vision is very important. I personally hate to go to crowded places. Instead, I love to read books alone in my room.

Okay, so what the question asks, “Is it possible to be alone and happy?”

Yes, it is possible to be alone and happy. But, how someone can be happy while being alone? There are many possible ways that will make you happy even in your alone time.

In fact, many people wish to be alone. See, alone having its own pros and cons. But, here we are going to focus on the pros only.
