I would definitely not say that life without friends is better. There is a time and place for everything. Sometimes, we do need to be alone to think things over sometimes. It depends on the individual as to how much alone time is needed. A person who spends all his time alone is considered antisocial and can in fact develop some real psychosis.

I agree with this. I prefer being alone. But it is also not healthy to be alone all the time. So I have a few friends as well. And they understand. I mostly like being alone. And that is okay. :)

Yes the person that is most important in our lives is ourselves because without ourselves there would be nothingness in our own existence. Friends are also separate entities that we ourselves have created to help aid us when we are down and to generally entertain and keep us company. Human wants and needs are strange because sometimes we need to be alone and sometimes we just need somebody to talk to.

I will say yes and no. There are times when we need to be alone and there are times when we need a friend. So i would not say that life without friends is more better, after all you friends should understand when you need your space and wants to be alone.

I think I have to balance my need for friends and my need for privacy. While I can handle being in a crowd I am much more comfortable when I am by myself. I know people who have to have someone else around all the time, and I just can't really understand that. I am very blessed to have a husband who is also comfortable not having a lot of people around. If I had to make a choice between being totally alone all the time or having others around all the time I would chose to be alone.

I agree there are times I need to sort things out by myself. I have a friend who is now married my brother in law, and she calls me and wants to know what is going on. sometimes it seems I just do not want to talk about things or need help. I am fairly resourceful, and I have a husband and we handle our lives pretty well. Sometimes we just want to chill out at home alone.

I’m with you. Based from experience, friends can’t help me most of the time. When it comes to little things, yes but in times of bigger things or edgy times, people seems to back out. I’ve been into that situation and one thing I feel is hate and disgusted. And so I never keep friends close to me. I have lots of them but I never treated them close as family.

no we need friends what ever happen to us. friend can understand us and if you want to be alone then we can tell our friend that we wanted to be alone and that goood friend of ours he/she understand us they can live us alone. Don't think that we don't need a friend. coz not all the time we can get what we want.

i will quote your statement..."sometimes we need time to be alone and dont need someone to disturb us..." yeah you are right to this point..but in my own opinion it's wrong to say that life without friends is more better that having friends. I just can't live without friends, so difficult..yes it is true that you need sometimes to be alone you can do your reflection as well and you can concentrate more..but i will tell you that life with friends are better that without. Happy mylotting.

Your more of an introvert. I would definitly say i'm more of an introvert for sure but there are times where I like to be around friends. I can understand what you mean and where your coming from.

My friends are important to me, but it is equally important to me to spend some time alone. I get very irritable if I don't get to spend some time alone, because I need to think, daydream and just be by myself. I love talking to my friends but I go crazy if I am constantly surrounded by people. I am an introverted person, but that doesn't mean that I don't need company. When I have been alone for a while I need to talk to other people.

Well, you don't really understand how helpful friends can be until you have them. As for me, I'm a loner and I can do a lot of things better on my own, but it really is great to have people to talk to, people who can help you or even just encourage you. Life is nothing without other people, no matter how much of a loner you really are.

Trust me, I know about needing to be alone. I also like to not be disturbed. That is just how I am. I am shy and introverted and quiet. I was made this way. I can't really control it. So, I understand you completely. :)
