Generally, I think it would be considered 'wrong', but it is only because people have a hard time understanding that it's possible to not like people, and to be by yourself without being lonely. It's all about lack of understanding eachother.
People who are introverted don't need to be around other people in order to feel energized and excited about what they're doing. This is totally normal. There are different levels of introversion and some people need or like more alone time than others. For introverts, it's not only okay to spend alone time but it's necessary for your emotional health since that's how you recharge and process.
It is not wrong to isolate yourself. There are a lot of people who don't want a lot of social interaction, and some don't want any. There is not anything wrong with that.
No it's not wrong at all. It's actually quite make sense as we need to be alone sometimes just to put ourselves in a good order. But an excessive amount of time spent isolated from others is not that healthy either. We need to know how to balance em.
Isolation can sometimes be used for self reflection. Usually it is for a limited time. Socializing is an important part in our lives to guaranty mental stability.
Most people enjoy socialization and find it hard to spend long period of time by themselves that not to say that there is anything wrong with isolation if it is a personal choice.
I don't know write or wrong. If you can be productive, focused and enjoy your alone time then why not. It might look isolation to others but you might be busy in a marvelous creation. On other hand, if you are feeling lonely and not at all productive instead becoming sad and depressed, it isn't okay. It is better to surround yourself with people. Even if you do not contact or communicate it makes feel connected after all we are a social creature. We have to have social contacts. There are many ways one can surround himself with people.
It's normal to spend some time alone if that helps you to feel happy and/or energized. Many people prefer to be alone much of the time without becoming lonely. One area worth exploring might be why you don't like to be around people, if you fall in this category. Sometimes fears could be holding us back from seeking out others, such as fear of rejection or social anxieties like embarrassment. Too much isolation might make it difficult to feel connected in the long run as well. If you are one of these people, it could be healthy to check in with yourself about why this is the case.
