It's nice to be alone sometimes

I wasn't feeling up to it so I decided to stay home and skip the usual Easter family dinner. The rest of the family went and I was left all by my little ole self. It was nice having the house to myself. I took the dog for a walk, made my lunch, and did some sewing. It is good to be alone once in awhile. Do you enjoy your alone time?

It is nice to have that time to clear your head and not have to take care of anyone but yourself.

Yes I do. I've had some alone time this weekend but right now it's best for me because of my depression. Glad you enjoyed your some time. Sounds relaxing

@Freelanzer For me, it's not really a change. I teach my classes, see the people at work, see my kid clients, see my music friends, and then spend time grading papers and playing music by myself. And MyLotting. I enjoy my alone time.

I enjoy my alone time very much especially at night time. My senses are 100 percent on alert for my own safety.

I do find that I am more concerned about safety when I am alone at home.

@Freelanzer I think what excites me more about being alone is the knowledge that i am responsible for my self --- food, safety, comfort, etc.

I can be alone and not feel lonely - nowadays it is so easy to stay connected with the world - siva

Yeah, I totally understand what you mean. There is nothing wrong with being alone from time to time. Actually it is quite stimulating. For example after a long day when you are surrounded by people, you just relax by yourself and you gain extra energy just by thinking about various stuff and not talking to anyone. When you are alone, you can do anything. Nobody is watching, nobody is judging you, nobody expects you keep talking and be social. You are there for nobody else but you. It is only your time and miracles can happen if you are happy and relaxed.

i do. I can do my tasks even better when I am alone. the disadvantage though is if (God forbids) I might have a health problem and I cannot call anybody to help me.

I'm always alone in our house because my kids are in school and my husband is at work, so far, I enjoy being alone.
