    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...

    Alone But Not Lonely

    My alone time is very important to me. Especially after an evening with dinner or overnight guests. I like to have people around but lately a whole lot seem suffocating. To some I may appear antisocial when I escape to our front veranda for solace and fresh air when I'm cooking...

    I Spend A Lot Of Time Alone

    It's just easier. I don't have to deal with other people or their opinions of me. When I'm alone, I don't need permission to do anything or to have irrelevant conversations about nothing I care about. I don't like people and I don't like living with them, either.

    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...

    It's just really refreshing to just stay home and relax. Don't have to worry about anything or anyone. It's just nice to have a day away from everything and do what you want.
