I spent the first part of my life as a teacher and a mental health counselor. Later I was a retail store owner. I owned a chain of stores in fact. My social life was the stuff of legend.
But that was then and somewhere between then and now I changed. I now prefer the solitude, security and silence (mental) of my home to any social adventure. I like my own company and the peace I feel alone.
I still have close friends, but they know they’re likely not to see me more than a few times a year, nor hear from me by phone more than monthly. I am grateful for email and for the ability to earn my living at home. I don’t hate people. I’m not a complete misanthrope, but they do make me uncomfortable and I’d rather be alone.
It seems I’m not the only one. I’ve actually found dozens of people who share my preferences; in fact, I believe in this overly complicated, insane world, there is an ever growing movement of people who, for one reason or another have adopted a reclusive, or semi-reclusive life style.
