Isolation is a funny thing. Sometimes people isolate themselves from others for a reason; be it fear, depression, or anger. Then there is the kind of isolation no one wants: isolation by others. This usually happens when the person that's being isolated had done something to a particular group that merits the isolation. I'm only bringing this up because I've seen pretty much every type of isolation happen in this short year that we've had so far. Someone makes a crucial mistake, and instantly they are isolated; not kicked out of a group mind you, just isolated so that they know that they messed up. My main point of this rant is this: either that person can embrace the isolation and really spend that time alone thinking about how to remedy the situation, possibly even get creative and do something productive, or they can go into a state where they completely shutdown. It really has to do with the person being isolated, and that's what I find fascinating about isolation.
