    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
