Taking the time to be alone is great. Not too much, but enough to have it feel indulgent. I recently went to a writing conference in Burnaby BC and shared a room with a friend. It was great, no sharing the bed, no having to meet up for lunch, no accounting for where I was, just freedom. When my husband came to pick me up on Sunday I realized how much I missed him, but that wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t had my time and my self-care!
