    Idle Thoughts About Feeling Free

    I want to know what it would be like to not have to share a bed with anyone for several weeks. I want to sprawl out and sleep in the middle of a big bed, and sleep under a heavy quilt to keep me warm. I want to be lulled to sleep with music playing. I want to leave the...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...
