    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...

    My Life As a Solitary Person

    I am a Solitary Person all my life.  In some aspects, I feel it was meant to be.  It's a sense that just won't go away thru time.  I have a limited amount of friends, it also seems the closer I get to a friend, they move or they turn into a fake imposter, but that...

    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...

    I write this because I feel

    that it is important to let people know that it is ok to be by yourself. I love my family and friends, they give me happiness and strength at times....and other times drain me unbelievably! I love going out for drinks or dinner or camping with people, because too much isolation...

    Not Always By Choice...

       I am so extremely shy that I just tend to stick to myself. I have never learned how to socialize without feeling like a complete dork.    Most of the things I like to do can be done alone. I enjoy my computer, watching TV, reading, cooking, quilting...

    I'm realizing with the passing days,

    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...

    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!

    I used to be a pretty outgoing person. Over the past few years as I left the life of bars and going out, a lot of people I considered friends went with it. I do have a few people that I see or talk to occasionally that I still consider my true friends, but lately I am...

    Should I Open Myself To Other People?

    Hello, I have always been an introspective person. Besides that, I have always enjoyed my own company and have seldom felt the need to get close to anybody. Apparently I look like a social guy, since I communicate well with other people and have many acquaintances. However I...

    Be Still Within Myself

    I have learned the art of making sure I have my solitude. Not talking about being a solitary person.. that is being alone... i'm always alone. Temporarily letting go of my obligations and being still within myself. Not going around sweeping, doing dishes, polishing my tables...

    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...

    I Am A Solitary Person in the sense that I can be very comfortable alone just by myself. Noise distracts me. Loud and boisterous people bore me. I'd like to avoid them like a plague if I can, but I oblige when a  circumstance calls for it.  I was raised by my...

    I really don't care to go out and socialize. It's hard to talk to people in person and the everyday people you normally interact with kind of share a hive-mind like vibe to me and on the rare occasions I did find people to talk to was few and far in between and do not live in my...

    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...

    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...

    My family is beloved,

    yet I don't need to be with them all the time. I am unlike my brothers who call our mother daily. I am unlike my brothers who call each other a few times each week. I am solitary, I am on my own journey of self discovery.

    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...
