I Am Lonely Yet Content By Myself

Shall we revel in our solitude together? 135 People

    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...

    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...

    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...
