    Sigh

    I feel like no one understands me and this make me feel so alone  Although I know this probably isn't true since we all share a common bond of humanity. Still I feel this way. I don't socialize like I should because I'm afraid of peoples judgment of my feelings. Or maybe it...

    Because I Screw Things Up

    People irritate me. Don't get me wrong there's some good people out there. Some smart intelligent people with morals and an understanding about the sad things in life. But sometimes the world just blurs into a mess of people pretending and pretending. Trying to look happy, trying...

    Dream On!!

    I dream of spending one day by myself without any interruptions but for me thats a nono. To get away from it all would be heaven but its very difficult when so many depend on your being there. My little dog has diabetes and I give him shots twice a day. It puts a damper on my...

    Leave Me Alone

    I'm a very social person. I'm shy, so I don't go out and mingle well. But I love being around happy people. I was at a jazz fest lately, and even though I talked to very few people there, I loved being amongst people who were having such a great time. That's me. But there are...

    All By Myself

    I require time alone each day, in which I get away from my apartment, my work and go for a walk - usually it is along the river towpath close to where I live.  It is a time to prioritise what has been going on in my head.  My lunchtimes, usually are spent in the...

    In The Car

    I often need to just get away, especially if my wife and I aren't seeing eye to eye (to put it mildly). My preferred method is to go for a drive in the car; it doesn't matter where to and sometimes for hours on end. I use this time to think things out, usually out loud ("Honey...

    Introverted?

    Whenever I do personality tests, I seem to fall in the category of 'introvert' by their definition. One of the indicators of introversion according to the Myers-Briggs personality test is that an introvert renews energy by being alone, whereas extroverts renew energy by being...

    I don't like to be alone too much, but sometimes I love to take an afternoon, or a Saturday, and just hang out in my dorm room and read/watch tv by myslef.  In fact, I've been stressed lately and I really need to do that soon.

    A Seperate Peace

    Me Time! We all need that

    once in a while. For me, it's getting on that plane to a far away land and experience a place I've never been before. Gives me my little break from the routine and makes me realise there's so much to life. Well, you always gotta work on paying those bills, but I guess it's...

    Now, it's not that I'm overloaded with work or I'm looking after a sick family member, so really I guess I have no excuse. It's just that, how exactly do you 'get away' without rising suspicions? If I walked out that door right now the people I live with would ask where the hell...

    I Need To

    I have to. If I don't, I feel like I can't function properly. I'm irritable and so sick of being around the same people, doing the same things, day in and day out. It drives me nuts. Nothing against any of them necessarily, but I can't take the routine and they're a part of it...

    Alone Time

    I enjoy time alone everyday.  I have always had a need for alone time.  I now spend that alone time in more positive ways.  It is a good feeling to be able to be ok with yourself while alone.

    Every now and again, it feels like the people

    around me are just too dense to listen. This could be from their actions or their words, but either way, I usually just stumble off to my room and just lay there on my bed (that or I listen to my music).

    who I get along with really well. But even if we're close friends it very much overwhelms me to spend too much time together. Even as a kid, I was the type who would go to a sleep over and call my mom a few hours in to come get me. My need for solitude is not about not enjoying...
