    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...

    This is so stupid, but I'm

    so tired of guys only talking to me simply with the aim of having sex with me, or starting up a relationship. Neither of which I want. I wish that if they weren't satisfied with being just friends, they would leave me alone. I don't want to be involved with anyone, but nobody...

    The less people in my real life,

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I always feel like I have to 'deal' with people.

    And when I'm alone, I don't have to worry about anyone around me, like if I'm going to offend someone by accident. And I never do feel lonely, I can't help but create imaginary characters that aren't loud and obnoxious.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    I so cherish my alone time.

    I need it to function. I never feel more alone in this world then when I am out and surrounded by people. I feel so much better when I am alone. That's the only time I truly feel comfortable. The only time I feel like I can be myself.

    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 feel like they swirl around me like butterflies. I touch them, feel them, understand them, and then I'm at peace. Sometimes they are a storm, and I am the eye. I can never fully catch those thoughts. They just flow out in my tears and stain the sheets. All the same I still...

    I think that the ability to enjoy being alone is

    both a survival skill and a sign that you're maturing as a person. Friends and family can be great, but I also need my space and a little "me" time each day. Being in the presence of others can be draining; you can feel like you have to interact with, entertain, or validate...

    So being alone is something I love

    yet hate? I like to be alone because it'll leave me to my own thoughts, but the silent kills as well where my overthinking just jumps in. So keeping myself occupied like reading and listening to music alone is something I'd love, being left alone in silence is something I'd...
