    If you happen to see me on a couch,

    reading, sitting on my laptop blasting music like I'm trying to drown in it or furiously mashing buttons on my 3DS, DO NOT BOTHER ME. I've probably had a rough day (or at least an interactive one) and I'm trying to have some alone time. I'm quick to anger and almost always...

    Howls From The Hills

    Yeah on some days I need my alone time from the world and everything in it. I'm not always like that but most of the time I am, I just like being away from everybody and their BS. Sometimes I just sit in the dark and listen to some good music while sipping on some cold beer, I...

    I have been blessed with an amazing husband

    and we have 4 beautiful children... but my alone time keeps everything in check. I need time just soaking up my own thoughts, enjoying my own company and not forgetting who I am. I think as wives and mothers we often become "Mrs. Soandso" or "Eli's mom" ...and our own...

    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...

    Everyone needs some time alone.

    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...

    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.

    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...
