    I love my family. My husband is awesome kids

    are typical teens. Life is good. But lately I feel like I just need space. Time alone. Not like move out or leave but like a few days of no one needing or wanting me for anything. They love me but I feel like they are depleting my energy and I need to find a way to replenish...

    I Rarely Get It

    Space that is. All morning long at work, I get very little space as I care for very young children. I love kids, but they don't give you much space. Then the rest of the day I am with my two small kids. My daughter especially is always on me, like a cat. I love that she...

    Space In Ep Too

    There are times when you have to take a break, and break from EP is no exception. A break from work (holidays). Break from family (not a family break), break from society, etc and of course break from my ex... what ever the reason be, it gives time to gather our thoughts and...

    I Need Some Space

    I was just married and I love my husband and have no problem sharing my space with him but we still live at home and even though we technically have a small part of the house to our selves I feel more and more that I hate the rest of my family being in it and I just want them to...

    Second Chances

    Sometimes giving someone a second chance is giving them an extra bullet for the gun because they missed you the first time. BE careful BREAKUPS Aren't Always Meant To Make Up, Sometimes They Happen To Give You A Chance To WAKE UP

    Of Course, I Need My Space!

    You know....I really took freedom for granted when I was single and without a child. Now I have a baby to take care of, and I tell you I need some me time. I need some away-from-everybody-and-every-breathing-thing- time! I can become pretty mean when I don't get my...

    Sometimes I Just Need Space

    My first husband was a very distant person.  I had more space than I needed.  He kept his feelings to himself, so it was difficult to guage if he was upset, angry or even try to work out any problems when he just would not open up. I spent a lot of years as a very...

    I Always Thought I Needed Space

    I have always been one of these people. I definitely need my alone time, and do not know how some people can just constantly be around others all day long and not seem to have an issue with it. I think me being an only child has a lot to do with this. I recently started dating...

    Always Someone

    There's almost always someone around me. Sure, they have their reasons to keep track of me, but I need some space. I have to have my alone time. There's almost always someone close to me when I'm at home. I would really like to have some time for myself. Just to be alone. Just to...
