    Wisdom Of The Dalai Lama

    The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the...

    I have been living alone

    Living Alone

    I live alone, it's no fun to be on your own, i have had boarders, but it only last a short time, i learnt long ago never to live with your friends, most times you end up not talking or hating each other, a short stay is fine. It would be nice to have someone to chat to or...

    And It's Not a Bad Thing

    Well when you are getting a divorce and you move out there are not to many choices.  I guess I could have moved back home with Mom, but that would have been a hour and a half commute to work or maybe my sister, but again it would have been an hour plus commute.  I found...

    I Live Alone and In the Dark

    I love living alone. Right now I cant really find anyone who wants to be around me. I usually like the temperature around 74 F. I usually walk around naked and the lights are almost always off. I love being in the dark and love being naked, there is a lot less laundry to do...

    most people may envy you the freedom

    and stuff, at first you get excited, but soon enough you'll realize it's not as great as people might think.

    Me and Two Nice Cats

    When I was a girl, I wanted to grow up to live alone in a cabin in the woods with lots of cats. Then puberty hit and I took a 30-year side trip to marriage and children. Now the children are grown and I'm finally living alone, not in a cabin, and the woods are a few...

    I live without other humans at least,

    I have two cats, and a fish. I have just recently started living alone, sometimes it's scary, especially at night, but sometimes I prefer it, prefer being alone.

    How Does It Feels To Live Alone?

    I'm the only child in my little family... and my family is my mom. She really loves me : cooks for me, helps to overcome all kind of difficulties. However, her personal life hasn't progressed since dad left us and I feel like an obstacle. Few more years and I'm done with my...

    I'm not very good at living alone.

    Good ideas are hard to find alone. It's quit lonely and depressing at night. Sure, the freedom is great. I don't have to be so self conscious about my behavior and I can just walk around in my underwear. But I NEED people. I've pretty much sheltered myself to a point to where...

    Well I did just write about it yesterday,

    but this is such a profound change for me in my day to day existence that I felt compelled to write a little more about the impact it's having on me. I have lived alone very little in my 43 years on this planet. What's more, until this recent relocation, I've never lived more...

    Just Me

    I have lived alone for 5 years now. For the most part I really enjoy it. I like being able to come home and just sprawl out on the couch. It does get lonely sometimes but I work alot so that keeps me busy.

    I have been living away from the nest for over 7 years now. Like many others, I moved to the big city to go to University. I can tell you now that since I've been away from the parents I have moved a grand total of 7 times- sometimes twice in one year. First year I did the...

    I just moved to a new apartment.

    Living alone is definitely a new experience. I don't really know what to think of it. The first night was kind of creepy and I was definitely scared. The second night was better. It will take me a little while to get used to the silence, but soon I'll come to appreciate it.

    I have lived alone for almost twelve years now and haven't liked it. I feel incredibly lonely and don't like coming back to an empty house when I come home. I have no family to move in with, so unless I meet someone special I will always be living on my own, which isn't a...

    Plenty of Solitude

    Around age 16, I started dreaming of having my own place.  But in the years to follow, I realized what a tall order that really is... at least for a guy with an associates in art from a community college.  Heheh. It's tough to pay the rent and the bills...
