Menopause

Alone! A Menopause Sometimes Craving

Alice Walker

Who’s interested in Alice’s very small hut?  A pleasant hut, basically bug free, and the small animal is a sweet one.

Menopause, sometimes, causes us to crave alone time.

Time for pondering and reflecting and time for calling up what we’ve learned so far about life and love of all sorts.

One friend said to me, “I just wanted to run away. For a while. Not forever.”

Another said, “I got tired of the groups, the meetings, the obligations.”

Another said, “My husband is wonderful, but he follows me around and asks question after question.”

And so I think it’s important to build your own hut.

Find moments and places to be alone.

You can return  to the tribe in better spirits, with more energy, understanding, patience, and vibrancy!

What about you?

Are you able to carve out the alone time you need?
