Psychologically or physically?
I have never ever been totally alone in a survivalist scenario if we include strangers as people that are keeping me 'not alone'. I was always, from even the age of 3, strategic enough that even once as a kid I got lost (like totally lost) in a huge park-like place with a canal and stuff and my parents were panicking hard but I worked out after 3 minutes of realising I'd got lost that I would be better off to not risk kidnapping etc by running straight to the nearest cafe and while it took my parents around an hour to eventually find me my strategy was perfect and my parents congratulated me on how I went about it (I intentionally made it so they'd find me later but in a way that guaranteed no stranger could get at me).
This was always a strong instinct in me, I have that hunger games gene in me and am always ready to at any minute be thrown to the wolves alone. I am certain that I'd fare well in prison even though I'm very weak physically compared to most men. I have an extremely high EQ and IQ that combine to allow me to charm the right people and terrify those who I cannot charm. This combination of traits was not always ideal in how I applied it but it is since around 2 years ago.
I'll go with "either psychologically or physically", and I'll extend the question to anyone in the thread who wants to answer it.
I think periods of mental isolation, where we're completely alone with ourselves, can be defining and consciousness-changing. Part of it, I think, is just that what role you play in a given moment is so often determined by who's in the room. We spend our whole lives reacting to other people. So there's a question of "who are you when no one else is in the room?" or "who are you when no one is watching?"
Anyway thanks for sharing. For a kid, that's staying pretty calm. As always you seem to be your own biggest fan, but I find it kinda entertaining, so I dunno. Carry on.
