Our topic today is “living alone”. Like it or not, it is true of the American life that many people live alone. For most of them, living alone is a compelled choice, whereas, for some others, it is a matter of preference. But what comes out of both is a world of difference.
compelled choice
preference
some people of us do not like be alone in our rooms . They had to live in solitude.because some of us divorced, some widowed, some never yet committed. It is a sign of loneliness.
Why people choose to live in solitude?
A disease of psychology; Inspiration in solitude is a major commodity; It is seen as a matter of character to live in solitude; Use your freedom
Some people like living alone, is a disease of psychology.This disease is called infantile autism(自闭症). People with autism have an extreme fear of social, they do not want contact with others, prefer to be alone, reticent, like a person stay in the room.
Inspiration in solitude is a major commodity for poets and philosophers. They're all for it. They all speak highly of themselves for seeking it out. Consider Dorothy Wordsworth, for instance, helping her brother William put on his coat, finding his notebook and pencil for him, and waving as he sets forth into the early spring sunlight to look at flowers all by himself.
“How graceful, how benign, is solitude,” he wrote. Look at Milton's daughters arranging his cushions and blankets before they silently creep away, so he can create poetry. Then, rather than trouble to put it in his own handwriting, he calls the girls to come back and write it down while he dictates.
Alone can show a person's character.To be alone on purpose, having rejected company rather than been cast out by it, is one characteristic of an American hero. The solitary hunter or explorer needs no one as they venture out among the deer and wolves to tame the great wild areas. Thoreau, alone in his cabin on the pond, his back deliberately turned to the town.
When you live in solitude, you can stretch out your soul until it fills up the whole room, and use your freedom, coming and going as you please without apology, staying up late to read, soaking in the bath, eating a whole pint of ice cream at one sitting, moving at your own pace. Do not hide their emotions.
When you want to cry, you can cry out loud ,When you want to smile, you can happy smile ,it need not to pretend happy . you also can cursed and complained about something or someone without fear that other people know. This is a happy and not depressed life ,although it is a little lonely,.
The condition of loneliness rises and falls, but the need to talk goes on forever. It's more basic than needing to listen. Scientific surveys show that we who live alone talk at length to ourselves and our pets and the television. There's nothing wrong with this. It's good for us.
? Although living in solitude have some benefits,I think it is not good to long live in solitude. You need to communicate with others . Imagine , A man eating dinner for one night after night can be very lonely. Perhaps no one really cares what they did all day. If they are feeling sad, there may be no one to cheer them up. Some people who live alone say the worst times come when something very good happens because there is no one to share the joy. ?
It's important to stop waiting and settle down and make ourselves comfortable, at least temporarily, and find some grace and pleasure in our condition, not like a selfcentered British poet but like a patient princess sealed up in a tower, waiting for the happy ending to our fairy tale.
Thanks
