It doesn’t have to be a romantic walk in the park,
spring at its most spectacular moment,
flowers and smells and outstanding poetical imagery
smoothly transferring you into another world.
It doesn’t have to be a walk during which you’ll have
multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings
no other brain ever managed to encounter.
Do not be afraid of spending quality time by yourself.
Find meaning or don’t find meaning
but steal some time and give it freely
and exclusively to your own self.
Opt for privacy and solitude.
That doesn’t make you antisocial or cause
you to reject the rest of the world.
But you need to breathe.
And you need to be.”
― Albert Camus
