    I Live Alone

    I have lived alone now for over 5 years & I love it! I can pretty much do what I want & could never imagine sharing my home with anyone again. People always ask me if I get lonely but I never have, maybe I just love my freedom & space way too much!

    Well yeah because I can't walk someone else's path. I can only walk my own and do what feels right in my heart. To do anything else is to resist my path to true happiness.
