    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. ...

    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...

    We All Need It

    There comes a time when we all need to be alone, time to think, time to gather our thoughts, or merely just sit somewhere and let our minds go blank from the world.  @ times I feel so trapped, confined and almost locked into my life that all i want to do is run as far...

    Alone But Not Lonely

    At times I enjoy spending time alone, like today. It allows me the space to get in touch with my true feelings and just feel them without anyone trying to figure me out or inundate me with their agendas for me. Today was quiet but it opened me up to see and feel where I'm at and...

    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.

    Adjusting

    I used to be so comfortable with being alone...being able to do whatever I wanted, being able to think freely without distraction, no one around me to control the situation or make me watch something I didn't want to watch on TV. I even enjoyed it. But after adjusting to...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
