    When I Am Alone

    I might be an extreme case here because when I say I love being alone I actually mean it. I try to be alone as much as possible. It is nothing personal towards anyone but it is necessary for me. I actually like people, I just cannot be around them to long. I try not to put myself...

    There Is Nothing Wrong With It...

    I used to hate being alone. I used to define myself, my value as a person, by whether or not I had a significant other in my life, but as I've gotten older I've learned to appreciate the single life and I've learned that I've always sort of been more attracted to a single...

    Better Off That Way

    When you're alone, you don't have to worry about people staring at you or judging you or whatever.  When you're out in public, you are at the mercy of others and their opinions of you and their actions toward you.  When it's just you, you don't have...

    A Journey To Loving Myself

    I grew up in a very dysfunctional family. I was the scapegoat and I was abused in all ways. I've been reading up on scapegoats (we have groups here). They are the ones who are not willing to go with the program, who have to be shut up, who rebel and go to counseling and walk away...

    I Enjoy Being Alone

    I enjoy being alone. I work in a job that requires me to be there for others and do things for others so it takes a lot out of me. Whenever I can have some alone time I appreciate it. I see people on facebook and it seems so fake. People out partying, drinking, doing whatever...

    I feel warn out after a minimal amount of

    socializing face to face. There is a palpable sense of needing to recharge alone at home.

    I hate when i'm with my parents.

    ..we have a lot of divergents between us so i remain in my room doing what i love: playing with pc, listening music or thinking about math...and i like my little life. Maybe i'm trying to hide from the real world but for now i don't care. I want me and my paceful mind.

    "how Beautiful It Is To Do Nothing And Rest Afterward."

    This quote means a lot to me. Obviously, people work, stress themselves out, and destroy themselves slowly. I consider it a luxury to have all the time to yourself. Being able to live your own life and do what you enjoy is great also. I am definitely an introvert, but that...

    I Just Love to Be Alone. I Dont Know Why

    It seems like I am always alone. But I really like to be. Occasionally I thrive for some company, but I love to sit in my room all alone. no one to talk to or anything. I really like to drive around aimlessly ALONE. It feels amazing.

    I just like no disturbance.

    Like all the time to myself. Do whatever I want, but sometimes I like company whenever I feel like it. I hate it when others see I'm doing something or just being quiet in my room, and they come in and disturb you for no apparent reason.
