    I'm a Freak

    Being around other people too much scares me. I know most of my old friends realized that I try to avoid them most of the time and I feel bad about it. It's just that I know most people would never understand what I'm going through, no matter how hard they'd try. Why bothering...

    I Am Who I Am

    Dismiss anyone who tries to change you and points out your flaws. If you arent hurting anybody or yourself then you dont have to try to fit in.

    Isn't It Ironic...

    I guess those of us who enjoy being by ourselves don't have much to say to one another. LOL.

    I Swear I'm Not Always Isolating

    I grew up an only child.  You can lock me in my room with a bed, food, internet, bathroom, television and phone and I could stay for weeks without coming out.  There's just something about being alone that I love...

    Alone Time

    Being alone is the only time I truly feel safe. No matter how much I think I need people sometime, what i really need is alone time with myself. People just anger me; anything they do or say ****** me off and the only thing I can do is leave.

    In the Privacy of My Room.

    With the door locked, the music on, lights out but many candles lit. Doing nothing. Just thinking. Or I'll keep the lights on, still have the candles, but I'll be painting. It's beautiful. Not the paintings, they aren't very nice, but the moment...

    I Wonder...

     I wonder what it would be like to be alone by myself for a month - no unexpected visitors, no external expectations, no responsibilities, no guilt, no mistakes...a long time ago I use to dream of by a hermit.

    Of course I have, need

    and want friends, but I like to have a lot of alone time, at home. I don't mind going to the beach alone. My mom hates it when I'm in my room too long all day and its quiet. She says she's gonna take the door off. I tell her, Please, I'm grown. But I enjoy driving and shopping...

    I'm Uniquely Qualified For the Job

    Yes I enjoy being myself, and I'm starting to get the hang of it! To be candid about it, I just can't imagine what would happen if anybody tried to take over for me - I can barely keep up!

    To An Extent

    I do love being by myself, I enjoy my own company! I do get lonely with my husband away but at the same time I like having time to myself, doing just what I want to do and not having to worry about anyone else.

    I like to get on and be told what to do. I'll do whatever anyone asks (within reason) and I find the experience exhilarating. I'm hopeful that it brings pleasure to others.
