I think people truly underestimate the value of spending time alone, learning who you really are. Your article really puts it into perspective.

I completely relate to your thought, “According to this logic, I’ve spent most of my life as a failure.” I think many people suffer this quiet judgement from society and even friends or family.

There really is a freedom in shaking those associations of failure by growing as a person on your own terms.
