    I like being alone and I often am,

    but when i'm alone terrible things happen. Terrible, Terrible things happen. I get to be creative, let my mind run free. Not bottle it all up. Fix myself. Make sure the damage has been done. After all when i'm not keeping it all inside (because thats the safest place to hide) It...

    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'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...

    Sometimes I just want to do nothing

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

    I like being alone because being around people

    for too long or being around too many people is too much stimulation and it just ends of making me depressed .. also I notice how after almost everything I experience (especially social situations) I always lock myself in my room and just think about what just happened .. It's...

    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...

    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 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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Do you ever wonder why others are

    so baffled by the fact that you actually enjoy being on your own?...That you do it as an active choice rather than by default? Is it because in a way you're inadvertently pointing out their insecurities? Or does it mean there's something wrong with you for not always craving...

    A few weeks ago I stopped talking to all of my

    "friends". Honestly, I have never felt better in my life. At lunch, I have time to relax, listen to music and draw instead of forcing myself to socialize with people who I can't relate to which used to drain me. I'm not depressed, if anything I'm more productive than ever. I...

    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...

    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.

    There Is Me

    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.
