Lived On My Own For a Long Time

I am will be turning 47 this year. With the exception of 4.5 years when I was married, I have been on my own from the age 25.

If got divorced in 1996 and have lived alone with my two boys ever since. I have the boys one week and they go to their father's onw week. Every other week I am alone and I thoroughly enjoy it!

You are Soooooo right. Looking back, I sometimes have to pinch myself to see if it is true that I have accomplished on MY OWN all that I have; finishing college, buying my own home, becoming Mac [computer] savvy, doing the projects around my house, so many things, which I have done on my own, while living alone.

There's nothing wrong with being alone. People should know themselves thoroughly I believe, and living alone is the best way to find out what you're capable of.
