    Who Cares?

    Who Needs People?

    Humans are just full of heart ache and devistation, and i say who needs them...I have been lonely 99.3% of my life, and they never treated me as though i was one of them, so why not give it back to them 10X more?  I enjoy being alone, because then people are not all up in...

    The Difference Between Need & Want

    I am not afraid to be alone for long periods of time. Long, meaning years. Alone meaning in a relationship, living with others,that sort of 'alone' . I have grown up with a huge family, -both extended and siblings- and it's not that I am tired of them. I love them to death , they...

    I'm Used To It

    It's not the solitude that scares me.....I just like having you there :-)

    I have been pretty self sufficient for quite some time. When I decided to leave my husband in 2006 I saved pennies and dollar bills just to have some money that would cushion me when I actually left in 2007. My job allows me to provide a pretty ok life for them *phew Thank God...

    A Shield

    I feel very much alone at the moment. There are always people around of course, but everyone knows that's not the point is it?We all know the cliche about being alone in a crowd.  Well, we can be very much alone in any relationship, whether it's with family or with superficial...
