I want to be a hermit for various reasons.

Neil Gaiman, the Books of Magic
Unfortunately, there are people out there who would oppose the solitude of one. They believe that we all need friends, companions, acquaintances; to be apart of a group, where we must get along in order to get ahead.
Like when I was walking alone through this valley I live near by, I passed two people and this girl asked her male companion why I was walking alone. I need don't a companion to walk outside. I walk for the exercise, to think critically.
They have forgotten or don't believe in individual transcendence. It is writing literature that helps me endure through life.
If you are a loner whether by choice or circumstances, people ignore, mock, fear you. They tell you to conform, to get a life (we do have lives for we all breathe). They will think you're a freak.
Fortunately, there are those who will accept your lifestyle of solitude, even if they are social.
I have justifications for the beauty of solitude. No matter how many times I repeat this, I believe it be true. Solitude can bring one freedom, peace, the ability to think critically, intelligence, to work on your gifts and to study, and etc.
