Some people want to be alone and isolated because they just need a break. They get tired of people complaining and whining about the same things. Do you agree?

Yes, I agree. I sometimes, actually most of the time, feel the same way. I want to be alone because I want to think/reflect about the things that happened to me and the things that I have done. I also do this because people around me, might be already tired hearing the same situations and problems from me.

A really good way of reflecting things is really being alone. You cannot think deeply if someone is always bothering you all the time. Thank you for sharing. Have a great week ahead.

Yes it is true and sometimes people around you dictates and insists you to do something that you don't like since they thought that they are always right.

Really so annoying people right? Worse they will keep on being stubborn telling you nonesense things actually. You will not be able to gain focus on what you are thinking somehow. Thank you for the nice response.

For some just need a break as you say. Some are so tired of being cheated, have the trust they gave taken for granted. Being used for whatever purpose others choose and leave them with nothing or even less than that. Even though they tried to find some that are trust worthy, able to let them in and find still again they are mistreated and left behind. That gives a person a good reason to just stay by themselves.

Yes you are right. It is a great reason to be alone just to stay by themselves because most of the people that is being with you are sometimes jinx. But I do not generalize. These are some things that happening to me sometimes. And I would want to be alone and do the things on my own and it turns out to be better rather than doing it with the people who annoys me a lot for being stubborn most of the times. Thank you for the nice response.

Doing things on your own is good. This can build courage, self respect and knowing if no one else is there you are capable of doing it yourself.

Absolutely! and you gain self confidence because if you have done it by yourself, you will be proud of it. this is a special feeling that will keep us motivated to do things on our own with some tasks that we will be doing in the future. You will not be able to blame someone but yourself if it turn out to be wrong. Thank you for responding again.

Like what you mentioned, I sometimes need to be left alone to sort out my thoughts or feelings. It could be a problem at work, my kids' education, my parents' health, and so on. We can't do 2 things at a time. It's either one or another.

I wanted to be alone sometimes and do things i really wanted to without someone who will tell that you are doing the right thing or not.I wanted to relax myself and enjoy the environment with my bike while riding and practicing my tricks on it, I feel free everytime I do that.

That is really the essence of being alone. I don't want people telling me to do things like this and like that. Even my mom. I don't want her nagging all the time so I just lock myself up inside my room and just be alone. Thank you for sharing.

Yes. The time being alone should really you being alone. You can be alone and just not talk to the people around you. It is still not considered being alone. It should be quiet and peaceful so you can relax and enjoy every minute of it. Thank you for sharing.

Alone or with my dog is much more fun for me, no matter what I'm doing. People tend to get on my nerves more the older I get. This is mostly my issue, not theirs, I just do better alone than in a social setting, especially disliking large groups.

Hello there! It will bring out the best in me if ever I am alone because I can put all my concentration with what I am doing. I usually spend time alone for myself if i wanted to rest, relax and chill. I also do my reports then those times. Have a great week ahead and thank you for the nice response.

Absolutely true. I also wanted to be alone if I am thinking of my problems. I dont want to be misunderstood by people who are around me and I am being not nice to them because I am consumed with my problems. Thank you for sharing.

everybody needs time alone. to relax, to recollect, to meditate. i do that most of the time when i'm already stressed and want to be free from anything. i do need sometimes to just take my own time and contemplate on things i do with my life and things i'm still planning to do.

Yes you can really meditate by yourself and not being with a lot of people because being with them tends to get really way too noisy and you will not be able to concentrate. Being alone is a good way to plan things out in your life. Thank you for sharing. Enjoy the rest of the week.

Wanting to be alone and isolated is not for everybody. Living alone is awesome for those who love independence and privacy, just like me. Being alone gives me freedom from others or family's domestic shortcomings and give me my way to live a home life in my own terms. The best thing about being isolated is that you can do whatever you want without hesitations and thinking that you could cause your companions discomfort. You can leave your own bathroom, room, living room in any order, in any way you like it or scattered everything and leave it. You can always listen to any music you like, you can watch or work in your computer even in the middle of the night because you know youwill not be disturbing anyone. :D

Basically no man is an island. That is a popular phrase we sometimes hear. That is correct though because this will not be a great world you will live in if you will be entirely alone for the rest of you life. You will somehow need other people to be with you. Being alone is great if it is just momentarily or just for a while because everybody needs to be alone with themselves and to think in a very deep manner. How will you be able to do that if some people are bugging you all the time? Thank you for a great response as always.

I totally agree with you. Sometimes in my life, I need to be left alone. I want nobody beside me. I do that, as you say, just to take a break. I want to 'talk' to myself as I used to. I want to just 'say hello' to me, and I don't want anybody disturb me. It is not run away from others, definitely not. It is just the private time we need to find the lost thing from our life. I guess we all need that.

I also want to be alone to have a quiet time for myself. That private time makes us think a lot of good things that would make us successful or prosper. It is also a great time to plan things ahead because nobody would bother you while you think on your own. Because first of all it is your life. Thank you for the nice response.
