I Am Comfortable With My Own Company

    It would be excellent to have travelling

    companions in the future. But having travelled thousands of kilometres to Los Angeles to see Atoms For Peace in concert at the Hollywood Bowl and attended the Future Music Festival last year all by myself: I feel more than capable of doing these things alone. While I'm hella...

    Since I was a child, I have always been really

    comfortable being alone. I've always had great friends but really enjoy my own company. I feel happiest walking in the woods with my dogs & parrot. I do get together with friends once a week, but still look more forward to my Tuesday off from work. I have a boyfriend, who's the...

    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...

    Took A While...

    I'm the only child of a single working mom.  I spent a lot of time by myself growing up.  For a long time I hated to be alone and often spent time with people I really couldn't stand just to avoid it.  When I was in my 30s I did a 180 and just stopped doing it...

    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 am a people person.

    I am social. I am friendly and loving. I also do not have problems with being by myself. I never feel lonely. I am a Christian. I believe Jesus is always with me. I believe God is always near not just when things are good and glamorous but also when they look dreary and storm...

    Can Get Lonely

    I am comfortable being on my own but I think excessive time spent alone has led me to not want to be.

    As Long As I Have Access To TV And The Internet

    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 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 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...

    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 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...

    Me, Myself, And I

    I am comfortable being by myself, and only myself.  I will not judge myself, and if I do, I am correct because I know who I am.  I can do anything that anyone else would think is strange or weird.  I can entertain myself without eyes staring at me.  I...

    Introverted Not Socially Anxious

    I used to believe I suffered social anxiety. I don't think that is the case. Anxiety in general, sure, but that is different. Socially, I am comfortable, until I start to criticize myself due to a culture in which we find it normal to constantly compare ourselves to others versus...

    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...
