    Me Time.

    I love my friends and family but sometime I just need a moment to breathe and be by myself. When I am alone it's just me, I don't have to worry about anyone or anything else and I really enjoy that. It's like my me time, to sort out everything.    Solitude...

    Enjoy The Silence<33

    Every now and then I like to remove myself from being with people and not talk to anyone for the whole day. I'll leave my house If my mom is home and go somewhere quiet. Usually the forest behind my house. I stay there for a good portion of the day and just think. About what I'm...

    Mornings

    mornings are my quiet time. an hour of just reclining on the couch, focusing on a higher realm within the virtual landscape of my mind. silence is afforded me via the stillness of the voices in my head (perhaps still asleep, for once they awake, their cacophony is...

    The Quiet Is So Nice

    Do you know people who need noise all the time? They can't drive without having the radio on and they look at you funny if you don't turn it on automatically? How about people who turn on the television and just leave it on so they can have noise? I am that oddity who loves the...

    I Love Silence

    There is nothing more beautiful than the existence of silence. Did you know that composers say that the silence between the keys is what makes music more beautiful and inspiring? If there were no silence between the keys--all you would hear is noise. I like that point of view...

    Silence

    I must admit that I do love the silence. Mostly when I'm all alone in one of my favorite spots. But I realized that when I'm alone it's never really quiet. I can hear the waves crashing or hear the breeze wheezing through the trees and grass. The frogs and insects croaking and...

    There Something Nice About It.

    Don't get me wrong, I love hanging around friends and family and just socializing in general.  But, I do crave moments to myself.  There's something comforting about the silence.  Why I love late nights and early mornings.

    A Walk Alone, Through Nature

    Being Alone Is Necessary For My Well Being

    I enjoy being with others somewhat but, I absolutely need my times of being alone in silence and sometimes with noise. When I'm alone it's a chance for me to mull things over in my mind. I've tried on several occasions to meditate and find it darn near impossible. My mind NEVER...

    since I've been by myself in silence. And I miss it. I've actually gotten quite irritable because whenever I'm stuck around people and everybody's being so ****** loud it makes me very unhappy. It's just a personal preference. But still. I think soon I'm gonna buy a hotel room...

    I Need My Alone Time

    My alone time is so important to me. It always has been. From childhood I preferred to be somewhat of a loaner. I often felt awkward in groups of people unsure why I would feel inside that I just did not quite fit in. This stuck with me into adulthood. I could play perfectly well...
