    Being Solitary - Is It Learned Or Genetic?

    We moved around a lot when I was growing up. Hell, I've continued to do if for most of my grown up life as well... I was never in one place for more than a few years so making friends (learning how to make friends) may be a skill I just never developed. It is only recently that...

    I Have Always Craved Solitude

    When I was young I sought solitude and found it hard to come by. First of all, I am the oldest of six children so I always had company, like it or not. Then I got married and had three children and finding solitude was hard to do. Now, finally, with my children grown up and...

    How I Ended Up Here.

    I lived in Kansas until I was six and then moved to North Carolina until I was eight. My parents were divorced when I was an infant and both my mother and father remarried. After living in North Carolina for two years I moved back to Kansas. I lived in Kansas for five years...

    Solitaire

    I am solitary.  I love people, but it takes an enormous toll on me to be around even my close friends for a day.  If I'm feeling bad, a day to myself to do what I want alone always makes me feel better.  I can always entertain myself, and I'd much rather be single...

    Pretty Much

    Don't get me wrong, I can be social when I need to be. I've done the dinners with the Mayor and meetings with CEO's etc. I'm not afraid of crowds or speeches or being the center of attention. I just know me and I know that I'd take being home locked up alone if given the choice...

    Got To Have It..

    I still feel the older I get the more accepting I have become of my liking for solitude. It keeps me balanced, whole and centered. Without it, I cannot properly think, and go on through the weeks. Some people need activity to be centered, while others need peace and quiet to be...

    I'm beginning to love the idea of living a life by myself. I do want a love life, but then I see the drama, work, heartache and crap people go through to be together and apart of me thinks, "why bother with that? what is it worth?" I'm starting to feel like there's no real point...

    Solitariness In Me

    My Feelings About Solitude

    I certainly spend a lot of time alone, but It's not so much that I crave solitude as much as I have a need to think. Yet I'll wake up after had a happy dream and the dream always involves people, sometimes a lot of people. In my daily life, however, people are not all that...

    I Like Being Alone More Than Most People

    I love my privacy. I love being able to come home from classes, after I've been around people all day, and just go in my room and be alone. If I don't get enough time to myself I go crazy. It's not that I never want to be around others, it's just that I definitely enjoy my...

    All Alone and Nothin Wrong With It

    I think there is a time to be solitary and a time to be more social. But often times people view being alone as a bad thing, and I don't think that is always the case! Some of my best ideas have come from being alone with my thoughts!

    Peaceful Silence

    When I was younger, I would panic if I didn't have a lot of friends or a lot of plans. Not because I craved to be around people, but because I thought it was considered socially unacceptable to not be. I thought something was wrong with me. But as I've grown, while I still have a...
