I Like to Be Alone With My Thoughts Sometimes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 13,678 People

    My recent retreat time was really useful.

    I have found though that I get overwhelmed with the sheer amount going on in life, and thereby distracted. It definitely helps me to be alone with my thoughts sometimes. I am seriously looking at the option of making a routine that gives me quiet, uninterrupted time alone every...

    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 ...

    "Imagination is everything.

    It is the preview of life's coming attractions." The imagination is the one and only true escape.

    Being alone means you can concentrate on

    yourself without thinking about others. Best time to relax, reflect, meditate and discern.

    72……Seventy Two. This is my seventy second

    story according to EP. I haven’t actually added them all up and maybe I should because EP makes a lot of mistakes in their legends……………..but 72 is a good number for a legend. In mathematics; Seventy-two is the sum of four consecutive primes (13 + 17 + 19 + 23), as...

    I spent a lot of time late at night on my own

    with my thoughts. Sometimes it can be a tough thing but it's also quite a good thing some nights. I end up being able to think more clearly after a lot of time wittg my own thoughts.

    ~Wet Wind~

    It is midnight, I raise my east window, to find that it is raining hard out there tonight. This witch’s home is filled with soft music and candle light, the dogs snore. My body is tired but my mind isn’t ready for sleep, my spirit is at peace. An alert black cat named Salem...

    To be honest, I don't like addressing my

    emotions, showing affection often, or even care enough to admit when something hurts me. I rather be alone with my thoughts. This is how I fix me. Please don't take it personally if I don't respond to messages, texts, emails, phone calls, etc. I'm seeking inner peace. You can't...

    Today Ive been thinking about effort all day. As I speak with friends it keeps popping up in my head. How important effort is for all of us. I never thought about it a lot but it stuck with me today. We can have many desires and many wishes. We can have talents and skills that...

    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.

    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'm annoyed at how people can react sometimes.

    ..When they don't realize the worth of something and they just downgrade it. They would value nonsensical works rather than one that was done with due consideration and time. Well, Screw you!

    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...

    He wakes up hunted, with voices in his head.

    Nobody knows it, but today he won't go unnoticed. He can't forget. Can't forgive for what they have said. He's never been so hurt, but today his internal screaming is over. Who do we blame? Do we blame the family, the bully, or maybe he just needed to be wanted... She takes the...

    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.

    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...
