Do you like to be alone?

Friday, October 15, 2010

I do. I enjoy being alone. I can actually hear my thoughts and clearly focus on anything when I am alone and all seems calm. When did I start to enjoy being alone? I think when one has children being alone becomes more appealing. Not that one doesn't enjoy being with their children but it's nice to have alone time. And though I fully appreciate my alone time I don't think I would want to be alone forever. It is always nice to have "them" back after your alone time.

Some don't like to be alone. Why?

I recently came across this video and I thought it was beautiful. I'd like to share it with you.

Do you like to be alone? What do you do in your alone time?


  1. I have always felt like a huge oddball because I love to be alone. I could take a few days of solitude before I really started wanting company again! Such a weirdo but that's just me :)

  2. Okay I guess I am not weird! Cause I love to be alone and I am scared that I will loose this once I have children. Like you said, I will probably want them back after awhile . . . but this is a complex that I have.

  3. No I don't like to be alone but I spend a lot of time alone, as I live alone with a cat. I used to love it but I have some loner tendancies. When I am alone, my mind wanders and I tend to get depressed.

    I have spent a lot of time alone and it's been hard changing it but being alone is not good for me.

  4. @Jennifer - I don't think you are weird at all cause I could do the samething.

    @The Autocrat: I don't know if you will loose that feeling of wanting to be alone. I think you will get used to having them (kids) around all the time and will miss them when they are not but will still enjoy your time (alone) even so.

    @Jen awe so sorry you feel that way. Maybe you could get connected with some people at some local church events. Those are always fun!

  5. I have to say I do like being alone. I'm sure I would feel different if I had no choice but that's not the case so, there you go, I LIKE IT! A LOT!

  6. I love to be alone! I came across this video a while ago and fell in love with it... so beautiful :)

  7. Love this!! Thanks for Sharing ... I am just learning to appreciate being alone ... but I have yet to go to a restaurant or a movie and not feel like a complete weirdo!! lol ... maybe one day!! :)
