I Am Lonely Yet Content By Myself

Shall we revel in our solitude together? 136 People

    Revel By Myself

    Well I sincerely wish I hadn't allowed life to keep me from this site, I didn't expect to see anyone else say that they were content by themselves yet struggled with being alone.  Naturally now I feel guilty that I hadn't posted anything for you all to read....   I'm...

    I find it quite absurd

    when I have people displaying their (pseudo) concern prying all over my lonely life. There's a difference between being lonely and being alone. I find solace in being alone, la la la.

    I Have My Days....

    Most good, some a little sad. I left my husband a year ago. I lived on my own for a long time before I met him, so it's not virgin territory for me. I'm still relieved to be away from the stress. I used to hate going home, now I never want to leave. I have a lot to be grateful...

    The Grand Design

    I sometimes can't help but believe that I am destined to wander this world alone. My company is of the best kind; or so i'm told. Wherever I go I am loved by many, sometimes all. Whenever I travel I am always alone. I sometimes believe my loneliness is the balance that allows...

    Want To Be Missed

    I've been divorced for almost a year.  I have a sense of peace in knowing that I am no longer responsible for someone else's happiness or unhappiness depending on how you look at it.  I have a very fulfilling life.  Blessed to have a beautiful, healthy daughter and the most...

    Life As It Is.

    -I'm really posting this to get everything off of my chest.- I've come to realize that I wasn't born to be happy. I wasn't privileged enough to have a good family, or a great home. I didn't grow up with a want to become the next best physician, or the greatest astrophysicist. No...
