I Love Being Alone

    I want to be alone. In fact I fantasize about

    it constantly.I imagine having an afternoon free to myself. In my fantasy I wander the streets alone, eat lunch alone, and find a small pub/bar to hang in alone and meet new friends. I'm tired of being depended on. I'm tired of holding the family together. I'm sick of making all...

    What used to be horrible to me is

    now something I enjoy. Mainly because I just hate people though. lol I guess once I realized that people suck and it's not worth trusting anyone, being alone became less of a burden and more of something I look forward to. It's very calming. :)

    I have had enough socialization in the last 24

    hours to last me the rest of 2016. I can't wait for solitude!!!

    I never get lonely, the only time I truly feel

    comfortable is when I'm completely alone. I can't even relax around my best friend.

    I live for my alone time!

    !! That feeling when you can't wait to go home from work so you can be alone in your room listening to music or reading a good book. Or go for long walks at night all alone to think. Being surrounded by the crowd is absolutely draining!!! It's my dream to travel the world alone...

    I really enjoy my quiet time,

    it's my downtime. I enjoy my own company and am never "bored". I can easily keep myself occupied by writing, reading or just messing around on the computer trying to learn something new. As a married mom of 3 alone time is rare, but treasured! I try hard to teach my kids...

    I just love being alone.

    Sitting in a quite room writing down my thoughts or just simply reading other's. I love the silence that surrounds me allowing myself to get lost in the pleasure of imagination. I can do it for hours without realising how long I've been doing it.

    There's absolutely nothing wrong with wanting

    to be independent and there's nothing wrong with wanting to be alone. I hate it when people tell me Insane or an idiot for loving it... Everybody's different, this is my choice and it makes me happy.

    Sometimes being alone is way better

    than hanging out with fake people... I'd rather live a life alone than to be with those people... Nobody can hurt you while you're alone...

    I don't feel like myself

    if I'm not alone. Just being around a few people stresses me out and annoys me. I haven't always been like this but the older I get the more I need to be alone. It's so relaxing having silence and your own thoughts. It's hard for me to have any sort of relationship with people...

    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.

    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.

    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 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...

    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.
