People are all different. If you think about it though, they fall into two main categories: loners, and groupies.
Are you a loner? Do you like your own company better than that of others? Are you independent, happy to spend time alone, thinking and musing, or doing solitary activities? Do you like the quietness of nature? Do you easily amuse yourself with thoughts and puzzles, hiking, fishing, or walking alone?
A lot of well adjusted people are solitary types and love to be that way.
But some hate spending time alone. I’ve heard them say, “It’s too quiet. I’m lonely. I’m bored. I’m afraid to be alone, especially at night.”
Nothing makes them happier than when company is coming.
And then there are those who HAVE to be with a lot of “friends” or even just in a crowd. They say it makes them feel good when they’re surrounded by people. Life is one big party, and when the band goes home for the night, the groupies still want to continue being together, seeking each other’s approval in almost everything they think or do. “Wait for me! I just have to check how many ‘Likes’ I have on my blog.”
Whichever category we lean towards, loners or groupies, maybe we’re just like the rest of the animals on this planet.
