I Value My Alone Time

    To Recoup From The Urban Jungle

    I find that I absolutely need to spend time by myself.  That's the kind of person I am.  It's never a matter of feeling like I'm better than others (because i'm not), or snubbing my nose at the masses.  Being out and about is fine.  I like an environment where there's lots of...

    Absolutely Essential to Me

    For me, it's vital. I need time alone to recuperate. I use my alone time to analyze myself and my life to figure out what I should do. I sort through all of my thoughts and try to solve pressing problems. Besides that, I need to be alone so I can relax. You never have to worry...

    If I can't connect with you it's going to be

    very hard for me to want to be around you. It's hard only being half of yourself around others instead of being full by yourself. I love connecting with people that share the same interests as me but I don't want to always be the one that's uncomfortable because I can't be...

    It's Precious

    Ever since I met my husband he has travelled for business. Now it is for only one or two nights and not as often and we also have 3 teens at home. So when I get that time alone I do relish it. Depending on how long I have and my mood I can choose to spend it doing any number of...

    I'm an only child, maybe

    that explain why I like to have some time alone. The things that take my time are usually books or something related to science, just because I love knowledge, some love parties, I love a good book, I'm a loner because I can't find that much people to talk about "smart" topics...

    I Am Not Alone Enough

    I am not in town much so you might think I am alone a lot, but at my house it's really hard to get alone. I really like being alone with just me and my thoughts. I don't like to let others in much and if they got the slightest hint of my thought they would learn a lot about me...

    Me And My Shaaaaa-dow!

    I love curling up with a good book, i love to just sit or lay there staring at nothing and trying not to feel anything. Shutting out the world and all that surrounds me. Like going into this cave and emerging a complete and calm  person. Getting me time is hard enough, but...

    A Basic Need

    I have been called gregarious, outgoing, charismatic, egotistical, and a lot of other things.  But I have never been called a loner, but if I don't get my alone time, things will come apart. I have tried meditation, (resting your mind), self hypnosis (resting your mind...

    Beautiful Alone Time

    The best alone time for me is an early sunny morning, doing yoga under a blue sky. Feeling the breath and the sweet sensations of waking body and mind to life. About ten minutes in I feel like joy is flowing through my entire being, I´m aligned with the world, and anything...

    My alone time is something

    that has been crucial to me my whole life. There is probably no other way I can recharge my batteries except spending time alone. I have noticed that the people who have to constantly be surrounded by people (even those who are not healthy for them) are the ones who don't want...

    Being Alone Makes Me Feel Happy

    Even as a child i was considered to be the silent type I never had many friends. Now i'm still the introvert girl who finds happiness being alone. I did try to hang out and chill with friends at the mall but i always get the feeling of having a hard time to do what i want. I...

    I'm Totally Content Being Alone.

    If I have music, a good book, or movie, or a cat to snuggle with, I'm content. I don't need anything else. I'm very hedonistic. I like longgggg bubble baths, and hot chocolate on rainy days. Why should people be my main priority? I value silence. Companionable silence, I...

    Yeah, I'm a Bit of a Hermit Too

    I value my alone time very much. It gives me time to sink into myself and think, to simply enjoy me and be away from the vibes of others.

    Own Time Is The Best Time

    As I grew older and saw young people entering the trade I started telling them how important it was not to be hypnotized by the job.  There has to exist a world outside.  The insecurities of our era stress the necessity not to focus too much.  One day de company...

    An Infj Necessity.

    I've gotten a lot more social over the past few years, but still, I absolutely need my alone time.  Alone time is when I refresh myself and recharge to be able to go out and talk to everyone else... I need space to process my thoughts.  Most of my passions, like writing...
