Solitude – a state or situation of being alone, isolation, desolation, loneliness…
Growing up alone, learning to fend for myself, I never worried of being alone. I never doubted my social skills. I treat everyone fairly and with respect, polite and with compassion.
But in the crowds, being told they all dislike me, and yet having to face their pretentious smiles and politically correct backstabbing.
This is where I learned: office politics doesn’t just happen in offices.
