What’s The Harm?


The buzz, the sounds, the chatter, the absence of silence…is it stimulating or is it stressful? I seek the accompaniment of people yet when I am overstimulated by being surrounded by others I begin to become overwhelmed and wishing for the solace of solitude. It is a strange balance, trying to fulfill the overwhelming need of human connection while lamenting for the loss of meditative loneliness. I am a part-time social butterfly, and potentially a full time undercover loner. I truly find myself unable to find a deeper level of tranquility than the times I am alone. Here I am, surrounded by those that I love so much and yet I grieve for the fleeting moments where I can escape into my own head and go for a relaxing mental stroll. How does one cope with such a perplexing fork in the road?
