Isolation (3 of the Brain)
I feel misunderstood and can’t realize myself in my society and my circle of friends. This is why I flee into solitude and prefer a solitary life. When I don’t make any progress and the situation gets the better of me, I want to get out and be as far away as possible. Betrayal, painful experiences and exclusion push me into isolation. As a social being that naturally lives in a family or with friends, my isolation means the sacrifice of my social development and standstill. Resignation and frustration are the lazy fruits of isolation. I understand my situation and it’s clear to me that there are many different people who could be my new friends and who just don’t know that I exist. I find like-minded people and build up a new social environment. A withdrawal can temporarily convey something consolatory and secure, but should never become a permanent condition.
