    I actually enjoy being alone, more times than not. Being with people frustrates me. I'm not exactly sure why though.

    Sometimes I think that I'm better off alone. I'm infatuated of the thought of being with someone, being loved. The feeling of being alone makes me cringe, yet I'm always alone.

    Like this morning. I'm sitting on the couch with my dog, eating toast, and watching the morning news. Being alone in the mornings is crucial for my day to start well. :)
