    Always Busy.

    I am seldom bored. I always have things to do and if not I make things to do. I spend a lot of time with other, socialism, work play. I am naturally sociable and love company. However, the times when I am on my own I am also comfortable. I do not crave attention all the time and...

    I like to do things alone,

    go to the movies, out to eat. my friends think its weird, and sometimes get offended when I turn them down to do something by myself. but I need that alone time sometimes.

    I don't think you can be a good friend to

    someone else until you are comfortable dealing with yourself.

    If there is one thing I've learned about myself

    all these years it's that I really know how to make someone feel unwelcome and extremely uncomfortable.

    Even though I love people,

    and believe all my friends are a treasure, I take time to be alone to recharge. I think it's necessary to understand the way I think, so I can better help others.

    I Love Being Alone

    Some of the best times I've ever had have been when I'm by myself. I moved alone to a place I'd never been before a year and a half ago, and I've often found that I am my own best friend. I'd usually rather be by myself than with other people, in light of the limited group of...

    Yes, I truly enjoy my own company

    and my time alone. In fact, I seek it. I love to grab a tool, (rifle, bow or pistol, slingshot maybe) and take a walk in the woods. Not hunting, per se, just practicing or whatever. Clearing my head. Thinking. This or when I'm alone working on something around the house or...

    I enjoy my own company,

    I don't need someone else around me or a groups of people to enjoy 'company'. I recharge my batteries.. 'Social batteries' by having time alone unlike some people who need that interaction with people. Not meaning there's anything bad by that or anything. I think time to...

    Peaceful, Rewarding Work

    Although I've left this life behind for the most part, I still remember the peaceful solitude of moving cattle from a summer pasture. Just me, my thoughts and my horse.

    I'm Lucky For It

    I can enjoy a day or two alone without yearning for the company of others no problem . Time spent with my little boy , even better than other adults . I get along fine with people and can even have a good time in a work environment but it isn't a need or desire to reach out and...

    I love being out with everyone

    and being in the middle of all the hustle and bustle and things, but I also love to just be alone with my thoughts. I love to be alone and play my instruments or sing or just go on the internet :)

    I live alone, by choice.

    I have had a marriage and another long term relationship. I don't think I was very good at them, and I've been happier and healthier when I've lived by myself. By this point in my life I'm just not willing to make the compromises necessary to live with another person. I...

    I think its about balance.

    I think a lot of people miss out on the benefits of being alone with their thoughts. Everyone at the gym, for example, has ear phones in their ears. I think through things. Sometimes its minor, but I always feel that I've had time to reflect and things go better as a result, and...

    Life has made me see my best friend is "myself".

    I understand all my feelings and am the only living soul, around me, who remembers my life, specially before I was in my 30's. When I have alone time I love to take a long walk, perhaps at the local mall, and relive some of my life experiences. Sometimes my imagination...

    I believe that to be comfortable with your own

    company also implies that you are comfortable in your own skin. On the contrary, those who feel the need to surround themselves with people who may or may not be healthy for them on a regular basis are the opposite. They are not comfortable in their own skin and don't want to be...

    I prefer to be by myself,

    when I'm with others in always inclined to act a certain way or do things a certain way and I'm not allowed to be myself, when I'm alone I don't get judge or ridiculed. I can just be myself.
