    I like my little bubble I made,

    where all my favorite things are and I like being alone with them for a long time before eventually socializing

    Most days I cannot stand being alone.

    I can't stand the silence and the sound of my breath going in and out. There are times that I have found myself pacing the floors of my home longing for anyone to come home to rid this emotionally draining silence and just comfort me. My lovers arms around me make me feel so...

    I was not alone for a while

    and now I can actually get to be alone much more and I cherish these times.

    I'm not a loner by any stretch

    but some situations require so quiet time to recharge myself before I can deal with anymore personalities or social expectations.

    Sometimes the world is just

    so noisy, like an eternally buzzing bee around one's head. I'll admit, I find conversing with people extremely tiresome sometimes. Consequently, taking the time to find a quiet, secluded place to just sit for a while is extremely pleasant. My personal favorite is at 2:00 a.m...

    I just needed to get away from everybody today.

    Luckily my dad is out of town so I'm over at his place in the solace of his apartment. :)

    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...

    It's necessary at times.

    I'm an introvert who adjusted, or perhaps over-compensated, and became an extrovert to manage my way through life. I have done so quite successfully. But when I need to hunker down and figure things out, I like to be alone or with my family in the security of my home or in the...

    Sometimes....

    Sometimes I wish people would just leave me alone.I like being alone and able to reflect on things, sometimes for long periods of time. Often people think, "Oh, she must be mad at me..." No, this is not the case, sometimes I just feel so overwhelmed by others that I need my own...

    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...

    If you think that not calling

    or texting me is punishing me, you don't know me at all. lol. It simply gives me more time to sort out my feelings about someone who isn't you. When you did finally reach out, I actually laughed. I am not an emotionally starved sponge. Go search out someone who not only wants...

    I live in a tiny house

    and my backyard is basically just the woods. I've spent hours getting lost in the woods. I've found some creepy stuff there before but mostly it's just relaxing taking in all the beauty around me. I like being alone in my house during the night, and at night when there are...

    Early in the morning

    and late at night, those are my favorite times of the day. Time to think, read, write, reflect, meditate, and exercise. Alone time recharges my energy

    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...

    Even when we have company. My mom doesn't like it and then calls me out so that I have to come out and answer her so that I am not being disrespectful to her when she is talking to me. Those times I am usually still in my pj's and have to then take a shower so that I can visit...

    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...

    To be in my own little world and just lay in bed. I wish my husband would understand that.

    People ask me if I'm seeing anyone.

    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...

    Because when I'm alone,

    I don't have to bother if someone would judge me for my craziness and randomness in life. And I don't have to worry if my poise had gone and I look like a silly bear dancing her own victory dance saying, "At last! I'm alone. All by myself."

    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'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.
