Can You Stay Alone in the Boarding House

After the reception of the wedding we had attended this morning, the group decided to go to the mall to have some relaxation. I preferred not to go with them as I have still a lot of things to do. I have to wash my clothes, clean my room and of course I still have to visit myLot. So I have to stay in boarding house alone. I was able to do the household chores and I feel glad about it. I know my group mates can not stay in the boarding house alone because of fear in some unknown and unseen creatures. I told them although I believe in those things, I am not afraid of them. How about you my fellow myLotters? do you believe and afraid in the unseen things?

I can stay alone anywhere as well. I am not scared of anything. I sometimes have to stay alone in our house which is an ancestral house and is 100yrs old. It is two story high but single or one floor. It has 10 rooms and the toilet is one has to go down down down the steps. It has steps since it is on a sloppy land.So everyone asks me how i can stay alone in the house. That time I was new to this country and people. But I was never scared. Last month a lawyer friend had come home and he wanted to go to the toilet and I escorted him. He said he can never stay in a house like that because he will get scared in the night to visit the toilet. lol. Many people have changed their ancestral house to something new because they couldn't stay in this type of big houses. I like it how it is and I am not scared at all.

Hi riyauro! Thank you for participating. Though, I can not blame my group mates if they are afraid to stay in the boarding house.

What are unseen creatures? I really don't know. I am a bit afraid to be alone in a big house too,but I must make sure the door and windows are closed well which can give me some sense of security. The unseen things ,I think it's only our imagination.I'm sorry to say that I don't believe the unseen things.But I still imagine thieves or bad guys,I always put my mobile phone under my pillow.

Thank you happy day for sharing your opinion. I also do that. I always make sure that my cellphone is under my pillows. I believe in the unseen things but I also believe that they can not hrt us if we believe in God.

Oh yes, I can stay on a boarding house alone, I'd prefer that than be with some annoying boardmates. If we talk about those unseen creatures, well I got goosebumps all over! They say that to see is ti believe, so i'd rather believe them than to see one. Sometimes it feels like someone is watching you when you are alone and of course I got scared! In order to avoid those thoughts I just make my music louder and i sing my heart out! In that way I won't get sacred anymore.

I live alone in my house.But at first,i was afraid of such unseen thing, even i had never experieced . Especially turn off the light, its darkness, u cannot see anything but moonlight from the window. When the wind blowing, the curtain moving,seems like there are something behind the curtain. I watched it for a long time, and was so sleepily then lost my mind. The second day when i waked up,nothing happened ,everything was usual.I know there was nothing to harm me then became not fear to live alone.

There is nothing to some people to live alone in a boarding house but some people it is very hard. We as humans have natural instinct of fear from unknown which in some case extends to the limit that we are able to see thing which have no existence. I am not sure if such kind of things exist in our world because i have no experience of them at all. Most of these kinds of fear are only mind related with no physical existence or evidence at all.

Perhaps you are living in the city. It's okay to be staying alone in your room because you know that there are people around. But on our part, we are living in a small village which is somewhat far from the town proper. That is why I understand my friends why they acted that way.

I am not very superstitious or whatsoever. But I do believe in ghost and spirits. It's just they are guarding as than what most people think as scary and dangerous. I strongly believe that with prayers and strong faith with God will let you stay away from harm and bad spirits and beings.

To see is to believe. I don't believe on those supernatural things. For me they are just myths and not real. By the way good decision, you prioritize what you must do and reject the pleasure that your friends offered you.

I would be a bit afraid to stay alone in a boarding house but not because of supernatural creatures, but more of the burglars who have knowledge that I am just alone and they think they can do away with whatever they want to do since I am alone. I do believe in some unseen creatures that co-exist with us on this plane but as long as they do not hurt me then I'm cool with it.

Somtimes, I do afraid of being alone in a place where I know or heard that there are ghost or the unseen things. This instict could not be removed from someone who really believes in them. But what I really did when I feel something stange is to pray that nothing happens to me when I am alone.

Hi... I've been staying alone for 5 to 6 years.. There were times, when I had these vague fears... But not anymore! I feel a little nervous and on the edge when I goto a new place to stay.. But that is not strange, I believe... Now I'm so much used to it that, presence of other person irritates me sometimes.... LOL

it's always my belief that unless you heard it or seen it personally, you don't have to believe to the stories. even in the court of laws, hearsay as they call it, are not accepted as evidence.

I am more afraid of those we can see..those are more scary than the unseen. I am not afraid of ghosts,spirit they cannot do any harm. I can stay in a house alone as long as it is secured and not dangerous.

Well, I omit the discussion of the fear of invisible creatures. If they are in my house when I'm alone, however this does not scare me, because I do not annoy each them and them leave me in peace. However, I am very happy to be busy with housework. I love when my house is clean and tidy. First, I always order my bedroom. Then go to the kitchen where I "roll up their sleeves" and if necessary to wash the dishes too. In short, I feel very comfortable at home, especially when I am alone.

I suppose I am a believer in certain things that go bump in the night, lol! Mostly I am not afraid of things I cannot see. I make an effort to live in the present and only deal with what is before me, and it has served me well. I quite like staying alone.
