    I guess sometimes is forever.

    I'm scared of people. I don't really want to go.. close. I don't wanna get close to people because every single time, I'm the one who ends up getting hurt. I want to drown myself in books. And music. And the activities which include 'me' and no one else. But sometimes, it hurts...

    Being Alone A Necessity Sometimes

    There are times when I feel like I need to be alone, whether it be to regroup, rethink, reinvent or retire.  I find this time to be necessary and precious to me as I don't get a lot of alone time anymore.  I get irritated when people think that I am antisocial just...

    Alone

    Since I was a kid I liked to be alone in my room reading or watching tv.  Even on Saturdays when my parents went shopping I use to stay at home.  Even now I like and I need to be alone for some hours I can't imagine being with my partner 24/7.  I usually say that...

    Bound

    Shutting people out is what I do best.  I never realized how depressed I really was until I started dreaming about guns and knives, and how I was going to kill myself.  So I started taking antidepressents which don't do much.  They help a little but I still...

    Sometimes It's Gotta Be About Me

    I enjoy being around my family and friends, but I just have to have my alone time every day or I snap in two!  One of my favorite hobbies is reading.  I have to have quiet and peace in order to read.  If I don't get my share of reading time I feel on the edge. ...

    I Believe That Everyone Needs This... Sometimes...

    I think that to function well as a human being, we all need to be alone sometimes. I don't think it's strange to feel that need, or should I say that I assumed it was a totally natural feeling to want to be alone sometimes. Now that I think about it, are there really people who...

    I can't be with people 24/7.

    I need to be alone sometimes. I don't mind eating alone, or go to to the movies alone, it's okay for me. I have people that I love very, very much, but they are not exception to this. I just need it. You have people you love, but that doesn't change the fact that you need air to...

    Shhhh.....

    I really need to not hear anyone. No sounds, just silence and peace. When my thoughts become too frantic and emotions run too high I just need total silence and space. I feel a need for clarity that noise can't allow. To sit in silence and lay my troubled thoughts out so I am...

    Doesn't Everyone?

    I'm pretty sure everyone has times when they just need to be alone. I know I just had a day like that yesterday. I was tired of talking to people constantly and I just needed a break. It's nice to take a break on your own., catch up on a good book.
