I'm sure many moms would agree to needing a little alone time to gather their bearings. I'm all for alone time in admitting that the ambivert in me can use an interaction break occasionally, but there is a big difference in totally isolating yourself in an attempt to recluse. Isolation is a strategic tactic that the devil uses to have us ball up into hiding when we feel ashamed, defeated attacked, and scared. We most hold true in understanding the depths of God's mercy knowing nothing can separate us from his love.
I shared a recent shopping experience with an irate customer who was behind me in checkout line that reminded me that in life we will encounter times when we'll have to deal with difficult people.
