    Who Cares?

    I really would rather be alone anymore than with people that are only interested in using me.  I used to be the type of person who was so afraid of losing friends and needed so badly to be accepted that I would kiss people's ***** to get them to stay in my life.   ...

    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...

    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...

    I'm Used To It

    Did you have a mom and dad who spent more time in the home than in the bar? How about an uncle or aunt that cared about you, perhaps a grandparent or several?ย ย  Friends, neighbors growing up? I grew up alone. No friends that didn't move away, my grandparents on either side were...
