People isolate themselves from the public, not because they want to hide from them nor they want to run away from things they are dealing with at that moment. They are just looking for some peace. People can't expect that other people would spend their 24 hours with them everyday. Sometimes, they need time to be alone. Sometimes, they need space to breathe some 'fresh air.' Sometimes, they want to be alone because they need to do some reflections upon all the things they have gone through throughout their lives. Sometimes, they take this as an opportunity for them to correct all their mistakes and discover new things which can make them closer to their God and to the society. Others can never expect what's inside the heart of these people. They just can judge from what they see from the outside. Even if a doctor decides to do a surgery to discover what's inside someone's heart, he will never be able to find a clue. Because what's inside a person's heart is just between him and his God. No one knows. However, these people tend to feel very much lonely in their isolation. They cannot deny that they somehow miss certain figures who used to make them smile and laugh. Figures who used to fill up their emptiness. Figures who used to be their loyal companies. No doubt they will feel longing to see those people again. But they cannot come out from their isolation yet until they find the real solution to their problems. So, all they hope for is that those people who they love the most will be patient just a little while and stand wherever they are, waiting for them until they decide to set themselves free from the isolation place.
