    But it's not healthy

    for me. I have social anxiety and worry too much about everything. Thinking about bad stuff only makes a minor issue, to a major one. That often happens to me, since I'm single and don't have anyone around making me think about positive stuff. It's so easy to fall into that well...

    When I'm alone, that's

    when I can truly think and be myself. That's when my mind is fully open and I can meet my full potential. I write my best poems and draw my best drawings when I'm completely alone. I don't lose my train of thought and everything turns out more beautiful that way. But the best...

    Being Alone At Times Is Healthy

      I have always been a thinker.  I believe that true thinking cannot be accomplished with other people around you.  Even Jesus withdrew from the crowds to be alone.  In recent months I spent an extended time period recovering from ...

    Maybe Too Much.

    I really like living inside my own head. I enjoy my dreams and thoughts. I am my own best friend, when I'm not too busy being my own worst enemy.

    I'm My Own Best Friend

    Sometimes I think that I might as well be loner. I love sitting and thinking about things. It's not that I don't like hanging out with my friends and stuff...but sometimes you just need to have time out. I have a very vivid imagination and when I sit and start thinking, I think...

    Alone on my 21st birthday,

    just feels like a bigger reminder that my youth is being wasted alone in my room...but I know I chose this, because I truly like being alone and didn't put in the effort to meet people. That makes me feel a bit hopeful that maybe if I put in the effort things will be better...

    people get in my way and ask what's wrong. Then they think I'm pissed at them, even if I'm not.

    In My Darkest Hour

    Let me start off by saying I like to be alone most of the time with my thoughts. Usually when I'm feeling down or feeling at my worst. I like to sit alone and try to think about where am I going and what am I doing with my life. I'm at that point in my life were I'm trying to...

    I'm a bit of an old soul

    and most people my age are ignorant to the darkness. I try to explain things to others but they simply don't understand. It's not their fault, they just haven't experiences the hell that I have. It's just easier to let my thoughts eat me away than to throw them at people to just...

    It Works For Me

    One of my favorite places to be is outdoors. I can spend hours outside working in the yard where time just seems to stand still. I hear the birds singing, observe nature, but a very rewarding part about being outside is that it gives me time to think. I am alone with my thoughts...
