    Forgive Me

    Friends concerned asking me the same question. "You busy ?" "Just dropping by to see how you're doing. You seem quiet today." "Why are you so quiet. If anything bothers you, most of us here are civil. If you're having any trouble venting, just tell me. . . I'll be here with you...

    As much as I love my family,

    there are times when what I crave most is just to be alone. As a mother of three it is difficult to find time for just myself. It's difficult enough to find time for just me and my husband, and nearly impossible for me to find real alone time. It's not that I want to be alone...

    Alone Isn't Bad Or Is It?

    I want to be alone, a lot. I live alone, and often I can't wait until I get off work so I can come home and be away from everyone. I don't consider myself anti-social. I just like to get away from people. I think some people would think that this behavior is abnormal. I don...

    My Brain Is Tired.

    The last few days, I have felt lost in myself. I'm in a hole that I can't seem to get out of. I sit here at this computer most of the time and just read the stories, not commenting or just flipping around groups aimlessly. I love the friends I have here so much and appreciate...

    Grand Solitude

    More often than not I like solitude and being alone. This is impossible with two children at home, but I do not wish them gone. They add flavor and gesto to living since I'm mostly withdrawn from general society. I have one good friend that answers her cell phone and emails...

    Generally when I'm tired and/or stressed.

    My coping ability is lessened which seriously affects my confidence and I tend to shy away from people and spend time in my own company. Problem is with work, you can't shy away from people as others are constantly on at you - how do you do this, can you do that - and it then...

    Sometimes I just want to shut off my phone, iPod, and computer. I do not want to talk to anyone or even see anyone. I get in these moods and lately it has been going on for a while. My friends ask me to hangout or go places, and I come up with a lame excuse for why I can't. I...

    I Try

    My school has 6 (or 7) Chinese exchange students, and I was fortunate enough to meet one named Alex. He's quiet and shy. I feel bad when he sits at my table because my friends don't make conversation with him. So I ask him questions and make jokes to help him into the convo. (I'm...

    When I Feel

    When I feel that no one can truly understand me or when I have tried reaching out and found nothing to grab onto, I will retreat into myself. Even if someone is there to help, sometimes I will pull away, because I can't or don't want to deal with my circumstances at the time. I...
