Some reasons why we need time alone include:
1. It allows us to hear, and really listen to, our heart.
2. It helps us to feel – instead of push down – our emotions.
3. It helps us to decide who we really want to be.
4. It allows us to step back from the pressure to fit in.
5. It frees us from the need to please, or seek others’ approval.
6. It helps us to establish more appropriate boundaries.
7. It allows us to recharge our batteries.
