    There's a great feeling of freedom

    when you only need yourself. relationships are a wonderful thing, but not having to selflessly give your time and energy to someone else, can be better sometimes. I kinda like spending time with myself, using it to better myself and take time to do what I love.

    I deserve to be someone's first choice.

    I won't let you just lead me on and play me like that. I'd prefer to be alone then to be with someone who doesnt appreciate me.

    This is a sad thing to say,

    especially around the holidays. I love to be alone and the more my wife nags me about little things, the more I want to be alone.

    I am the kind of person

    who likes to be alone most of the time. I do have friends but I am not the social butterfly that a lot of other girls my age tend to be. I am quiet and shy and I like to spend time by myself. I do have a small circle of friends that I am close to and enjoy hanging out with...but...

    no judgement. no worry.

    no questions. no answers. just me swimming inside a pool of my own thoughts. I don't really like being around other people sometimes. even people I love, I just really love being alone. the feeling of me myself and I makes me complete. I don't need to care about anything when I...

    I used to hate being alone.

    Now I like the freedom of being able to do whatever I want. The freedom to be selfish successfully. When I do not feel obliged to be fair to, or engaged with anyone but my self. And since I love to be altruistic with my beloveds, it's luxuriously relaxing to simply BE.

    Loneliness is my least favourite thing about

    life. The thing that I'm most worried about is just being alone without anybody to care for or someone who will care for me.

    Alone

    I like to be alone – I like being alone – I need time by myself without another person around or in earshot or in sight or in existence (ok, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but you get my point).   Sometimes I’m lonely with people around, but when I’m alone I feel...

    In My Mind.....

    A lot of things make me ask a lot of questions. Healthy thinking sometimes does not hurt the soul. Its a very nice place to be in your own thoughts and let the mind explore and analyse things out. I can't help it at times and even smile sometime when i have a good thought...

    I like to be alone. I like to read a book in

    My Perfect Day.

    Sometimes, when I'm feeling down, I try to imagine my perfect day. The details fluctuate from time to time, but the general idea is this . . . "I get up at 4AM, it's not quite dawn yet, so the sky is a deep, dark blue. I leave my house, it's warm out, but the air is tense...

    I love being alone but I'm

    so bad at keeping a schedule that 2 days in I will forget to eat. If I could find a way to keep organized and stop procrastinating I'd probably become one of those weird hermits.

    Always Alone!

    I am always alone and I'm used to it.  Being alone is not by choice; just happens that I don't have someone to do things with. I wish sometimes that I am not so lonely.

    and beauty. I like the creation how it's perfectly made. I like the fact that no one looks the same, thinks the same way. I want to know more about our deepiest disires. What is it that we long for? What do they tell us about ourselves. We are not robots even tho I feel like one...
