The nourishment of solitude is powerful and significant. Change is important to shake up complacency and again open your eyes. Someone once said to me that he ” couldn’t even SEE me ” because I was too familiar and too often “there” in his daily life. When he started spending time away on a regular basis, he smiled at me one day and told me that being away had made him realize how much he sincerely appreciated my qualities as a person.
Do relationships become “stale” when you live with that person? Does a room become stale because it is so familiar to you that you don’t even notice the beautiful paintings on the wall anymore ? Can your life become stale ?
Do what you have to do to shake it up and breathe.
