    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 have spent the better part of my week off

    alone. Alone, on the road and with my camera. It has been the happiest, most enjoyable week I've had in a very long time. I've set foot in and photographed three states, numerous cities, spent time taking in the beauty of two mountains, three covered bridges, five state parks...

    my thoughts dont need company.

    most of the time I prefer to be alone.

    I like to immerse myself in TV books or movies and hate when other people interrupt or ruin the mood with comments. but mostly I don't feel free to think and feel fully unless I'm alone.

    Think for yourselves

    and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.

    For someone constantly putting myself down

    for my whole life.. Just not accepting compliments and even wanting anything for myself. I came a long way and I see and feel myself glowing.

    Sometimes my thoughts are blissful wonderings

    of the beauty of life, a perfect little haven to escape from reality. Other times they're suffocating, I'm choking out silent wide eyed screams of terror nobody can hear so I'm stuck in the seemingly eternal hell of my mind. These times force the tears I lock away to flow...

    Universal law means we draw to us what we think.

    Thoughts are alive. They really hold energy. We see ourselves as being only solid, but we are energy. We are spirit living in physical bodies. Our thought's are what creates our reality. So be careful what you think about every minute of your day.

    and I managed to fix it, grew strong and I was fine, happy. Then there was you. You made me happier. made me feel loved. Then the truth came out and there goes my heart. I fixed it, only for you to break it. Everyday... almost. With such sweet words... music to my ears.. but...

    Being Alone At Times Is Healthy

    I'm used to being alone,

    primarily I guess. I'm not used to friends. I'm pretty much a loner/one-best-friend type of person. Being social is new to me, but, to my friends, it's like, "you're so popular." When it's just ironic. I have very few true friends. I just know a bunch of people casually that I...

    I believe this is what I need now.

    I can't drain the life out of the people I love. I need to stay strong and return to them in a better condition than I am now. This will put things at a big risk of falling apart, but keeping things in perspective, I must reflect on the things that can make me come around.

    Sometimes, id rather be alone

    than go out with my friends when im having some problems of my own. I just want to curl up in my bed and reflect rather than talking it out to someone who can possibly knock me out of my senses.

    Came home to an empty house today

    after work. That rarely happens. I have to say I truly enjoyed the quiet time to myself. I had an hour of peace. An hour to do what I wanted to do without being interrupted, without being rushed, without being needed. An hour just to be me and I enjoy myself.

    world who I can express my thoughts to at times without seeming totally insane. Being alone is wonderful, but being alone with thoughts sometimes isn't the most fun.

    Sometimes, I like to be alone,

    just alone, without nay gadget, locked myself in the room, close the window, just me alone in quietness. I find it relaxing. I can think about many things, My past, my present, and what would I do in the future, what I want and what I don't want. I can focus on it. But it only...

    I feel like when I am with people

    for too long my mind starts to become disorganised. I have to concentrate when I'm with people, make the effort to socialise which is to the detriment of my mind if that makes any sense. After a while I find it exhausting and I just need time by myself to process the day. I...
