Amen to that, I totally get it.Lacewing wrote: ↑Sat Jul 18, 2020 7:01 pmI hear ya! Being a happy hermit has served me well for many years at different points throughout my life, and admittedly enabled me to accomplish a lot. Over a year ago, I met a guy who made me laugh a lot, but I discovered quickly how he could turn my life and energy completely upside down with his lack of awareness and instability, such that I would lose ground and feel depleted. So I eagerly went back to being a hermit!Dontaskme wrote: ↑Sat Jul 18, 2020 9:33 am I personally think mature grown men and women should become hermits and live the solo life. That way, all would be well at all times.
No choices to make, no arguments, no stress, no responsibilty, just pure being, who you always are, always have been, and always will be, just me myself and I, your own best friend, mother and father forever and ever, Amen, Ah bliss.
But then of course, it's each to their own, after all, it's their heaven or hell...or both together, whatever grooves with ya.
How nice for you.Lacewing wrote: ↑Sat Jul 18, 2020 7:01 pmThen at the beginning of the global pandemic this year, I met a guy who is a good, conscious soul, and a sweet man. We're very good to and for each other, and it just feels right when we're together. We stay in the moment. Although he voted for Trump (hahaha!!), which would normally be a deal-breaker for me, he's not a big Trump supporter, and we connect on so much more way beyond that. It feels easy, fun, and natural. I'm welcoming each moment of it with open arms. I truly was not expecting I'd ever meet anyone I could have this kind of experience with. We simply never know how the waves and tides will come together, DAM. Although we may be radiating our hearts out to the Universe, there is much to us that we may be unaware of ourselves. Like you, I think we just have to do our best to keep our vibration true and lovingly open no matter what, because there is extraordinary sweetness in that of itself!
However, for me, I have chosen the path of the one, the solo life. But not because I don't like PEOPLE, but rather I don't like the high price that always come with close intimate relationships between two people living together. For me, there is a much too high price tag attached, that I am not willing to pay. I have no problem living alone with myself, I own my own house and my 4 children have all moved on and are now living in their own houses. I personally have no desire or need for other people, especially people who want to form intimate close relations with me, of which there have a been a few. One guy who lives locally, I am good friends with, he adores me, and I adore him but we cannot stand spending more than 1 day together before we need our own personal space. He is the male version of me, he's a hermit who loves the solo life too. I have known this person for 25 years, we have stayed friends. He has proved to me that there really are good genuine people out there in the world.
I absolutely agree with you, and thanks for being so open and candid in sharing your thoughts and aspirations.Lacewing wrote: ↑Sat Jul 18, 2020 7:01 pmI think it would be a good idea for a lot of people to have some time being a hermit... as well as, not having kids right away. Seems like many people don't get the opportunity to develop their own personal growth when they're so focused on caretaking and negotiating with others. I like to think that we come here for more than popping out more humans. It's such a beautiful landscape to explore through so many layers/levels if we don't get corralled into typical and fearful herd mentality... affecting our physical choices as well as our spiritual ones.
