    Alone Time!

    Everyday I require a certain amount of time on my own.  And with some silence added in for good measure.  I have gotten worse in this as I've gotten older, just need that time to recharge from all the bustle and noise of life.  Thankfully my boyfriend is not a...

    Back Off

    Don't get mad at me because I enjoy having time to myself sometimes, especially if I am pretty much with you every minute I'm not working. Don't get offended when I don't want to be around people, and just want to be by myself. Wipe that puppy dog look off your face and mind...

    Just Me

    I solve problems for a living.  I listen to people complain all day, and I try to fix the things they are worried about.  When I get out of work, my mother, my friends, my sister call, and they rarely ask how I am, or what's happening in my world.  They tell me of...

    Just Cuz' I'm Outgoing Doesn't Always Mean I Like Crowds

    I like to be by myself, I like to hide in my room with my computer or a book and just sit and enjoy the silence!!!! I'm normally very very outgoing, people tend to think that I like big crowds and parties but I really prefer my "alone time", of course I...

    Yeap

    I'm usually not the kind that likes being a lone - in fact, I despise it! Loneliness tends to throw me over when I'm alone with my thoughts for too long >.< But sometimes, I just need a little peace from everyone and everything. I like to go for a run (or walk) out in the...

    Alone Is Worth It Sometimes

    Time being alone with oneself is much needed by being overwhelmed with the constant negativity and repetitious of mindless games by untruthful dilemmas. Being misunderstood and taking advantage are certified reasons to withdraw in a silent mode with no expressions whatsoever. The...

    I'm Looking Forward To 2 Weeks On My Own

    I feel weird just writing this............I'm happily married and love my husband. Before we met, I was a single parent, my children were my life.  As they've grown up and got their own lives, one daughter who excludes me totally from hers, I find I still enjoy time alone. I...

    Sometimes, I want to just leave everything

    and everyone else behind... Just go somewhere nobody knows me and somewhere I won't have to make time for anyone or anything else but myself. Oftentimes, actually, I just want to be alone... and left alone.

    At Least Once A Week

    I need time to sit in my room and play video games. I'm 24 so shouldn't I be beyond hiding in my room and playing video games?  I got my first gaming consol when I was 5, a SNES, then a Gameboy a year later. By 12 I'd talked my grandma into buying me an N64 and by 15 I had...

    Trying To Breathe

    I am not sure if it is because I'm an introvert or if it has anything to do with my schizophrenia, but I desperately need alone time, quite a bit. When I am around people for extended periods of time, I feel like I am going to explode. I am able to tolerate certain people...

    It's A Necessity...

    ...that's almost like water and air. When I go too long without having some alone time to simply kick back and process the things that have happened in my life...I can get kind of stressed. If I put this need off for too long...I can get downright claustrophobic...and start...

    I Do....

    I need time alone. I often ask for time alone, time to think, time to write. Sometimes It is just what I need to get myself back to feeling okay again. Sometimes Just getting back to myself. I Love having time to myself, and sometimes its all that you need. BroknWings

    Need Time To Think & Breathe

    My mother drives me insane. My whole family is like one big drama that won't end. Sometimes I just want to crawl into a box and stay there because I have no room. By room, I mean space. I need to be able to go someplace without interruptions. So that I can think and get my head...

    Get Bitchy When I Don't Get It.

    I stay at home, so when my family goes to work and school, that is sacred time for me.  I absolutely hate weekends, I love my family but when we're all here at the same time, ugh!  To me, the worst feeling ever is when its a weekday morning and I'm sleeping soundly, all...

    Might Be Considered Anti-social

    I stay busy for days at a time.. and it's enough to make someone like me want to lose their mind.  At home, I'm pretty much left to myself, and the communication that does take place between me and my family is pretty tolerable.  But when I'm out and about, working or...
