donhornsby's curator insight, June 23, 6:10 AM

(From the article): Mentally strong people can tolerate being alone and they don’t fear silence. They aren’t afraid to be alone with their thoughts and they can use downtime to be productive. They enjoy their own company and aren’t dependent on others for companionship and entertainment all the time but instead can be happy alone.

Michael Binzer's curator insight, June 24, 12:33 AM

I like this article. In gives inspiration and highlights the need to be in touch with yourself

Joe Boutte's curator insight, June 24, 4:40 AM
