I Am Used To Doing Everything Alone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 316 People

    I am used to doing everything alone.

    I lost my best friend in seventh grade and I've been on my own ever since. In a way I think it's made me stronger as a person; the fact that I'm fiercely independent and have no problem being on my own. But it does have its downfalls. Being alone is sad. It's almost unbearable...

    No Family

    That Doesn't Mean I Like It

    It just means I'm used to it. I can go to a movie theater by myself. I can eat out at a fancy restaurant or a fast food place alone. I can walk around the mall on my own. That's me the majority of the time. I guess I don't necessarily have to like it all the time. As long...

    I get overwhelmed if there are other people in

    the room, and having the house to myself is ideal! I focus better and feel more comfortable if there's no people around. Not sure why this is?

    Only Child

    I am very use to doing most things alone since I am an only child. I had no one to help me when Mum was out & dad was at work.
