    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...

    Hate It!

    I am always always alone!!! It drives me crazy. My husband is always gone working or in the bush. I usually B**** about it but I look forward to having time alone. I wish I had more friends and went out more, but I'd hate having people calling and showing up all the time, or...

    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 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...

    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.

    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...

    The worse thing about being depressed and lonely is not knowing that no one cares about you but knowing that no one will try to care.
