Sometimes, Sometimes Not...

It's kind of a double-edged sword being alone and enjoying it sometimes. I actually am quite lonely most of the time, having no friends or girlfriend to hang out with and talk to. But there are times when I value my alone time and don't feel lonely at all. Just me, maybe a book and a quiet park or a lake where I can just enjoy being with myself with no obligations to anyone else. Those times are not plentiful, but they are nice when they do happen.

I always wanted to try doing some things on my own, like going to the movies or going to the cafe, or sitting in the park just thinking and enjoying my alone time, but I always felt that people would think I'm a weirdo with no friends to go out with. Besides, especially in spring and summer, everywhere I go, there's always many people around me, even late at night, there's nowhere really to escape and truly be alone with no one else around.

Yeah, I especially like going to the occasional movie by myself or just wander around town having lunch and watching the bustling world go by.

For me, having time to myself allows me to calm not only my brain that is usually going 100mph but also to just physically relax. Wanting time for yourself is neither selfish or nothing to be ashamed of. Most of my colleagues and friends can't go anywhere without another person. Every so often, I enjoy a movie or walk on the beach on my own. It's just "me time".
