    I know it ain't helping me

    so much. I'm not so talkative when I'm in public. think i'm a funny guy but still don't have the right friends. I enjoy spending time alone and thinking more than hanging out with others.

    To Think and Meditate

    It is something that we all need from time to time, a spot in the day just to collect your thoughts and have the quiet to sort them out. I think that it is almost a need of just having the time where the TV is off and the phone doesn't ring, the kids aren't yelling, where you...

    I enjoy having quiet alone time. It doesn't matter if I'm doing something specific, or nothing at all, it helps me unwind.

    Spending Time Alone

    ...i love it. I can´t understand people who says things like "i can´t stay lonely" or people who needs always company, maybe can´t eating if they have not company. I cook for myself, go walking, reading, listen music... Of course i enjoy company, but just the people i love...

    What If.

    I don't know why being alone is so looked down upon in society. When we see someone sitting by themselves, we often think "aw poor thing." What if that person WANTS to be alone.

    I miss my alone time but I didn't appreciate it until it was gone.  I wish I could turn back time and I would make sure I have some alone time just for me each day.
