    Never understood why everyone feels like they

    HAVE to get married and they HAVE to have kids. I would never want either of those things

    I'd rather be alone and loved,

    than in a crowd and hated. I think there are many that might agree with me there

    I find it relaxing being alone

    or antisocial . people say its not healthy but how can that be? You dont have to deal with people hurting you or walking all over you. Its really a peaceful feeling.

    Being alone doesn't necessarily mean being

    lonely. I love to spend time away from others to focus on myself. I love to discover parts of myself I never knew existed. Be kind to yourself, and acknowledge your worth.

    I enjoy being by myself.

    Cuz people think I'm weird and I am really weird like I can't talk right or make conversation. I also think in concepts and lesson in my head so I enjoy being a loner

    After class today I decided to go to the mall.

    I didn't plan anything beforehand and so before I knew it, I was at the cinema. The dude who was in charge of the ticket counter where I was buying the movie ticket, started off the conversation as usual. But when I said I was only buying for one, his expression changed. It's as...

    It's nice I like shutting the world out

    and sit on my bed and listen to music and read a nice book especially on a cloudy day

    I love being alone. I enjoy the peace

    and quiet. I enjoy being able to think without someone assuming I'm doing "nothing" and thinking it is okay to interrupt me. Most of all, I enjoy being my true self. With no one else around, I don't have to pretend to be something I'm not or worry that something I said was...

    It's amazing how some girls can drop everything

    and put a guy that doesn't even want them, before themselves. I don't understand the logic.

    Most people don't understand this.

    I love being by myself and doing things on my own. I especially love travelling by myself and going to concerts / gigs by myself. I love my own company and things are just easy that way. I'm not a people person and don't think I ever will be.

    People annoy me, and I also feel like I can get

    a lot more done when I AM alone. But, I ALWAYS have time for my rottweiler, Nova. She's really the only company I need.

    If being around people wasn't

    as exhausting as it is to me, I wouldn't find being alone such a reward. I'm so tired of people treating me differently (like giving no eye contact when they're talking in group of 3 people and making me feel like an incompetent child) because I don't know what to say or do to...

    The sanctity of seclusion I enjoy being alone

    (well the only person in the room my dog rex is like my shadow so he follows me everywhere in the house but I like just laying down with my tubber (he's a hypoallergenic hybrid of cocker spaniel and poodle and he weighs 40.2 pounds))

    Isn't that odd? Like most,

    I crave affection. I wish with everything I am that I had someone who truly knew me and somehow managed to love me anyway. I dream of long walks and swinging hands. The exploration, the laughter. The sharing. Well, nothing unusual I suppose. Just elusive. But for all those...

    I usually listen to music

    and work on my stories when I'm alone because when I'm around people they always interrupt me, so I try to get as much alone time as I can.

    I miss it a lot. I remember

    when I left someone and felt that wave of relief wash over me because I could finally enjoy the solace of being alone again. Now I'm yearning for that solitude again and this time I need it more than ever. I can't take the constant chatter and clocking in and out of a...

    I used to be so insecure about myself

    that I was so devastated when my friends start ignoring me. Three months later , I'm okay now with being alone. I've learnt to be tough, to love myself more and to love others as well. All is well.

    or hear anything. Just sit and do my things. Like what I do now. Peaceful and quiet.

    Don't get me wrong, I love being with people.

    Being with family and friends. I love being happy with them and laughing and just enjoying the company. But there are times when I just want to be alone. I don't mind it sometimes. It's weird but it's true. I just need my "me" time, alone, and I'm fine with that.

    I love being at home

    and alone so I can be at peace, and I don't have to act to please others. So I can be free of of others judgements, lack of acceptance, and anger. So I don't have to worry about behaving socially acceptable all the time. Being alone or at home means I can loosen up, go barefoot...

    A lot of times I hear people complain about how

    lonely the are. I am not lonely. I like being alone. I like doing things alone. I used to think I needed someone. I don't need anyone. I need me to do it on my on. I know I can do it alone. I would much rather depend on me then another.

    There Is Me

    My life has been a lonely one. Thrown into chaos from the very start, with no-one but myself to pull myself through. I came to the conclusion that we are born alone and we die alone; therefore we must ultimately be alone. Everybody needs somebody... But who can be my somebody...

    If you can successfully manage to convince

    As a test to this I will share with you my

    current mental state.. Pleasantly stoned, drink/smoke in hand, and chilling out at home alone. Does this make me weird or less than? Who's to say really. All I know is I enjoy my own company more than anyone else's. To others this may seem sad and pathetic to drink alone on a...

    I Must Have Time Alone

    It is absolutely necessary for me to have time alone to be happy. Time to write in my journal, meditate, think, daydream, read, do energy work, sculpt, work in my gardens, sit at my pond and watch the fish---alone. I really dislike crowds, I'm just too overwhelmed by all that...

    I don't get lonely being alone,

    in fact I prefer it. I have wasted so much time being friends with people that have dumped me because I wouldn't get involved in their dramas that I enjoy the tranquility of my own company.

    I applied my heart to know wisdom,

    and to know madness and folly. I perceive that this also was a chasing at the wind. For in much wisdom, is much grief. And he that increaseth knowledge, increaseth sorrow.

    I'm starting to enjoy solitude more.

    I like being alone with my own thoughts and not have to deal with people. We went runner at gym class to prepare for our annual 5km run and I felt better running and being concentrated on one thing and only think of running. After it I felt like staying outside enjoying some...

    Until I left for college

    when I was 17, I had this weird tendency to look out the window of my bedroom at the market by the street near our house, to see if the stores were closed yet. Of course, they closed at the same time every night. I liked seeing the lights on, the people walking in from their...

    I like being on my own.

    A few years ago, when I first started university, I spent the majority of my time alone, moping in depressive thoughts or indulging in terrible habits. I was alone in a dark place. However, I've grown a lot since then and I now find enjoyment in solitude. When you think about it...
