    This Sounds Weird

    Okay back when I was traveling for business and living in diffrerent states, not knowing anybody at first. I used to have "MY" nights. I would live to cook myself a big dinner, put on candles and watch a great movie. That's it. Nothing crazy. After curl up to a good book and read...

    I Was Pretty Much Raised As...

    I was pretty much raised as an only child, and end up entertaining myself more then most would.

    Alone But Not Really

    She threw herself on the bed and took in the quiet. She relaxed letting out a deep breath...closed her eyes, smiled and said hello to him. She was no longer alone but rested with her lover, her friend. For those two minutes she was right where she wanted to be.

    I love spending time by myself.

    Probably mostly because of my social anxiety, but also because of the way I was raised. As a teenager with high school parents, I was never allowed to attend parties and have fun like other teenagers. It was all about school, tests, exams and getting the right grades. So...

    Me Time...

    I need that time by myself to center myself and reflect on what has happened in my life. During this time I might draw or write or just watch. I like outdoor natural setting particularly near water.

    My 'quiet Time'

    I enjoy spending time by myself just doing whatever I feel like at the moment.  Sometimes I like to read, work on a sewing project, putter around in my garden, or take the dogs for a walk in the woods.  It is nice to be alone with my thoughts without having demands...

    It's nice to get a bit of me time.

    Long leisurely baths. The whole bed to sleep in. Last minute plans you can be part of without worrying about anybody else.

    Lovely Solitude

    I guess it's because I value silence, stillness, and peace.I prefer to sit at home and read a book rather than going out to party, or having a bunch of people over to visit. I like music a great deal, but sometimes I just like to sit in silence and enjoy the stillness.One reason...

    Feeling Selfish

    My boyfriend tries to make me feel guilty for wanting to live by myself and not let him move in with me. Am I being selfish for just needing my alone time? FeFe

    I Need Time By Myself..

    I need it to organise my thoughts... Otherwise I can get very bitchy... And if nobody leaves me alone I think about stuff before I go to bed.. Nobody keeps me from thinking then....But I either fall asleep before I wanted to and end up in half-organised thoughts or I sleep in too...
