    My biggest fear I've always had was being alone.

    It's the worst feeling for me. I like the thought that I have someone to talk to when I need it. It relieves my stress and I relax more.

    Not Always

    There are lots of times I wish I could walk away from this effing computer and go snuggle up on the couch with my girl and just listen to her talk about everything she wants to talk about! Maybe one day :) I won't know until I see her.

    Alone In Residence...

    The worst place to be alone is where other people you know are socializing. Take living in a university residence. I went to my evening sociology class at 7, and came back about 10 after 9. As it is St. Patrick's Day, 90% of my floor was drunk when I got back. Not wanting to...

    A Cold Dark Place

    I don’t like being alone anymore; it is the saddest place to be; sometimes being alone is the worst thing that can happen to you. When you are alone no one hears your sobbing and there’s no one there to hold you close and make you feel better. When you are alone...
