    With Me

    I really like being alone.  I don't hate companionship or friends,  I just feel like I am completely and wholly myself when I'm with...myself.  I don't second guess, feel embarrassed or inadequate.  I simply am.   Thank whoever invented walls and doors...

    It Is Freedom

    Being alone makes me feel free. I can go wherever I want to without the burden of having to wait for people. I can go to the cinema and watch a movie (or movies) without having to choose a suitable time just to suit other people's time. I can eat anything I want, anywhere I want...

    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.

    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.

    Happy Loner

    In my free time I like to go to the coffee shop and read a book, spend some time at the beach, take pictures like a professional photographer, go for a walk in the park and feed the ducks before they attack me, go on a road trip, go fishing, sailing, hunting, diving and spend...

    It charges by batteries.

    Being around people all the time is exhausting. It gives me a chance to read a good book, or draw in peace.

    Proof You Exist

    So instead of bitching about how I am incapable of getting sex and probably addicted to it and going to kill myself. I decided to review on of my old philosophical thoughts from way back in.. I think it was college, my sophomore year. The thought came to me when I was on...

    I have a pretty demanding job,

    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...

    As I've gotten older

    and more wise to the reality of life and the people in it, I prefer time alone, even away from my boyfriend. I know that I can rely on my self and unlike a lot of others, I can entertain myself whilst alone. I think I'm becoming more of an introvert which is okay at the moment...

    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...

    Ive always enjoyed doing things on my own.

    Its not that I don't like other people its just that I relish the freedom of doing what I want when I want without having to worry if this suits anybody else. Being independent gives me the opportunity to be spontaneous and adventurous as I am able to go to places and do things...

    I don't even remember when it started. I use to be the kind of person who didnt like being alone, or rather i never had to be. In school, at home, even just in my neighborhood. I was always surrounded by people i liked. When i was 4 or 5 i actually remember thinking i would try...

    the less drama and bullshit I have to deal with. I have a small number of real friends in my life and I like it that way. I have less drama and phone calls that way. Usually people forget me anyways, and it don't bother me. Sure, I get moments of loneliness but I have my writing...

    I Love Being Alone

    I love to be alone as much as possible. I work from home, and my husband is also a loner. He mostly stays in his man cave after work, playing black ops.That is completely fine with me.I don't want to talk to anyone, see anyone, go out and socialize. I just want to be left alone...

    I prefer to be alone.

    It's been this way for at least 8 years. I've been a lone wolf since I was 6 and I still am to this day. I tried making friends but they would either bore the hell out of me or just straight out hated me. And it's funny how someone could hate you even though you barely know each...

    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...
