    Restricted Zone, Please Step Back

    To be honest, I like to spend a lot of time on my own.  It's not necessarily that I don't like the company of other people (I'll come back to this point in a moment) it's because many of my hobbies and past-times require solitude.  I don't like to have the thoughts of other...

    Only Sometimes

    Usually I prefer to be around people important to me. Sometimes, I need to be alone or I will do or say things that I should not when I am around them.

    Time To Think

    When I'm alone, there's so much on my mind, it's scary. However, at the same time, it gives me a chance to be able to release my emotions, whether it be through pencil and paper, or through tears. Many disapprove of my need to be alone, but I honestly don't think they realize...

    All By Myself

    Sometimes I just like being left alone to my own thoughts, I was never really one of those out there type personality type people. I'm just a laid back guy that minds my own business and keeps to himself, and most of the time I prefer to be left alone because I like it that way...

    I like being alone at times,

    especially on Friday nights for some reason i don't know why. I just love to lay in complete silence all cuddled up in my bed and just think about my entire life. Think of things I should've done, things I shouldn't have done and things yet to be done. When I'm alone I allow...

    Good For Your Soul.

    I heard a friend say the other day, that there is a difference between hiding, and spending time with oneself. Its true. Spending time on your own is good. Gives you space to think. Im not saying you should go lock yourself in a room alone, but take time out every now and then...

    I Found Out...

    I found it out on holiday with some friends. We stayed in a flat, that was only one room. And so you were basically never alone. And it was really weird for me to spent one week together with people and never be able to retreat. Cause I feel bad a lot more often than others I was...

    Time For Yourself

    I admit, I love being on my own. People are different where some people crave human interaction all the time, I'm more than happy to have a few days solo. It certainly does not happen often these days, but to have a day or 2 on my own is so refreshing for me. I can eat when I...

    Normally I don't usually walk alone

    though the forest part to get to my house but I did it at pure night time. It's scary though cause I hear noises in the bush and I scream and run. What if something grabs me? Now I rather walk with someone lol.

    I like sitting next to tree

    and reading a book. I like laying in the grass and looking at the clouds. I like to do many things alone. I think I have a social anxiety because I never want to be around people. I just like being alone.

    It's Fun

    Sometimes I love being alone, so I can do very crazy, weird things. Sometimes I prefer to be around people important to me, and do some crazy things around them. I love being weird and crazy. It's very entertaining.

    Sometimes I Like Being Alone

    I usually like to have time alone when I'm upset or I feel like I want to cry. I also like being alone after a long day of being hovered over or being in big crowds. Its beneficial if I just need time to think or if I'm trying to do homework. Especially if my parents are arguing...

    Alone time is always nice(: helps me reflect on

    my life... Plus, for my job(s) I am constantly around people, I am a server and a hairstylist and they obviously both require a lot of time around people. So yes, I very much so love my alone time!! 😌

    I've always enjoyed my alone time.

    Nowadays, I have more of it, not through choice particularly, but oh well. Having to socialise for long periods is getting tiring. It does come in handy when I'm anxious/depressed though. Allows me to get my head and thoughts together.

    No matter how nature built us,

    making us needing company, we are also made to discover ourselves and ponder on certain things that many times, they cannot be shared with anyone but ourselves. Thus, solitude can be refreshing and beautiful. I love writing and reading when alone, think of multiple scenarios...

    like I'm somehow flawed by being single. Honestly I can't be bothered to really look for love. Even though I might want to start a family some day and time will slowly but surely start running out. Maybe some day I'll regret not putting in the effort, but I love my home, my...
