    The Passing Moment

    This happens when I wanted to let the negative feelings ebb away, I close my door and no one else is allowed to enter into my silent world. I let myself grope in the dark until I get accustomed to it. My "passing moment" happens when I am badly hurt and in so much pain that I...

    Lately, I've had some people ask me

    why I don't talk to them as much anymore. I've had people ask me if something is wrong when I tell them I don't want to hang out. I appreciate the concern, as it shows that they care for me, but it does irk me when I tell people that there is nothing wrong, and that I just want...

    I Love Being By Myself Too

    Well, I already work all by myself, but I still enjoy a moment on my own in the evening, to listen to some music, relax, meditate, pray, writing my thoughts down, knitting, being creative, whatever.  It doesn't mean though I would want to live alone while I work all by...

    Time To Decompress

    I enjoy very much my social life, but sometimes I just need to decompress. However, if it lasts too long, I start feeling lonely and depressed. I start seeing my life as empty and meaningless.

    No More Chance To Be Alone

    Having alone time has always been a way to refocus, get my mind realigned to my future goals, objectives. Also a means to appease the inner demon so to speak. This has always contributed towards achieving want I wanted; in the way I wanted it. But of late, alone time has been...

    Since I Was Little

    Whoever I'm with needs to be understanding of this because it is nothing to do with them. Sometimes I need to be alone to think and reflect on things. I find it recharges me. It can bring about positive change. It's good for me and ultimately good for whoever is in my life.

    Always Will Be

    I don't even understand people that don't need to just get away from everyone and every thing. people are so willing to let other people soak up their misery that they never let it change them and learn from it. give me some good tunes or hell even quiet time and just me.
