    Alone But Not Lonely

    Even in a relationship or a marriage, it's very important to remember who you are. Don't change for anyone but for yourself. Dont ditch your hobbies and interests for someone new. The time a part is beneficial, and needed. Of not, it can lead to suffocation and resentment from...

    It's not like I want to be alone all the time,

    but things can get pretty ugly if I don't get at least SOME alone time. Even if I'm with my favorite people in the entire world, eventually I'll just need to be alone for the sake of mental stability

    What impact does it have on people not to be

    able to find you at all? I'm sort of in that space. I'm deleting everything, all my social networks. To sort of re-group and then come back in a few months. I want to lose weight and find happiness. Is this dramatic of me to delete myself though? I just don't wanna be tempted to...

    My Time For Escape

    I am usually doing multiple things at once. Texting, chatting, reading, writing, working, helping out my mom, taking care of my responsibilities, etc. Sometimes I just need a break to do one thing at a time and be care free unapologetically :) There is not a more freeing feeling...

    I Do Well During The Day, But At Night ...

    At night I definitely NEED some alone time.It's not like this for me every night because of course, it depends on what I did that day.
