When I am alone I like to read some GK books or watch news on TV as I feel there will be no disturbance from my wife or my children.When they are around my children will be coming & asking me something or the other & my wife will be always talking.So I prefer to watch or read when I am alone. What about you?

When I am by myself, I tend to be more productive. There are no distractions, therefore things get done. Being alone also gives me the opportunity to do the things that bring me peace. I think about my mom, I write, do more crafting and dance (although I dance with or without people). At times, too much alone time gets to me but for the most part, it is the only time I am able to enjoy the person I am and transition to the person that God is molding me into. I guess one could say that although lonely, you are never quite "alone". Thanks for the post! Be blessed!

hello purposedriven, yes you are right.The things get done in double quick time when we are all alone.But why is it that you think of your mom only when you are alone?

My mom passed away in October of 2008. When I am alone, I am closer to her as I am still going through the grieving process and doing so around people is very difficult. She was and is my everthing...my hero.

When I am alone I will play video games or make money here. Though usually I am not completely alone, even if my husband is at work his father will still be here asleep in bed, or his mom.

Krupesh, I like to play a lot of different types of video games, his father works third shift so that is why he sleeps during the day. Agv0419, I used to like to listen to something loud but now I am fine as when I moved I moved to a nice peaceful place.

When I'm alone I like listening to loud music and watch movies. Honestly I'm afraid to be alone in our house so I need to hear some noise so I'm not going to be scared.

I like to read also, its easier for me to have the quiet time. Or sometimes i just enjoy the silence and sit there, a good way to clear my head.

hello 1anurag1, What kind of movies you watch?while talking to someone on phone I think you are not alone..haha...but who are those people with whom you wont speak publicly? ..not a bad idea to watch some serials which you are unable to view in front of your family.

I have two hobbies and they are better done when there are no distractions. Those hobbies are reading and going online. If I feel i have been alone too long, I will just go out of my room and talk to who is home.

I love my own company, I feel the time goes a bit slower and I get the chance to relax a bit, I usually read or watch TV, nothing really interesting, I just love the fact that I can unwinde, I especially like it when I get a full day to myself, I feel that it is so relaxed and I get so much done in that day.

I love to watch movies. I am a big movie buff. I love love to sit, actually lay down with a blanket and just cuddle up with my partner or my little puppy and just enjoy a good story on screen. I also like to come here and hang out with cool and interesting people who always have something to nice and wonderful to say. Plus the topics and discussions are really interesting too. It is so nice to be able to have somewhere to feel safe and happy to come to everyday.

I prefer to be alone too. While I can tune out activity going on around me, it gets to be harder when the activity comes to me. Like family members asking me something, or requesting assistance. If my husband is watching television, as soon as I open a book, he starts, "Honey can you come see this?". Most of the time I go sit on the porch to read. If I'm out of sight, sometimes I'm left alone...lol.

When i am alone then i like to listen music or watch movie. Sometime i sing a song. Though my voice is too bad. But as i am alone so no body listen my songs. I really don't like to be alone. I hate to be alone. But some time i really prefer to be alone for understanding me.

When I'm alone, I usually surf the net, read online manga or ebooks, read pocketbooks and watch tv. If there's nothing to do, I sleep. I also think about anything about my life, like my goals, experiences, people I've met, while lying on the bed. I like being alone because I'm able to think over things that are going on with my life. Sometimes, it's really good to have some time for ourselves. :D

I think I'm being alone for a very less time. I want to be alone when I'm not feeling well i.e, mental disturbances etc. When I sit alone I try to recollect the memories of my lifetime which I've been done. By recollecting you may feel good of yourself and which increases the self confidence.

When I am alone I prefer to watch Anime videos (Anime Fanatic). Already collected many downloaded fansub episodes. Sometimes also use Pc to surf the net. And maybe take a little nap to rest my brain.

Humans are social beings. When we feel like we've lost that connection and spark with people we like, we lose a zest for life.But you've got to jump back in! It will come right back, and your fog of depression will disapate with time. Sometimes you can be pretty happy with the right companions, even if they are friends and not romantically interested. You just need to find hat group of people.

Hello krupesh When I am alone, I would like to do something I really like to do, like making myself a wonderful flowering tea or a fruit tea, or the day I am not on a diet, I might buy some tasty dim sum as snacks. Sitting at my desk and reading my book or watching TV. Like now, I am alone at home and just the moment ago, I do some stretching exercises and some yoga, I feel a lot better now and feel I am healthy. I like the feeling of being healthy and strong, so whenever I am alone I would only do things which I think it can strengthen my body or release my stress.

I am like you in that I like to read in peace or watch some TV in peace without interruptions from my kids. I usually like to watch travel documentaries or sometimes movies on DVD that are not suitable for young eyes and ears. It is hard to find time to watch these films when the kids are around as even if they are in bed, they have a habit of getting up for a drink when these adult films are on. (I do not mean the dirty type of adult films) I usually watch these movies during the school day and get some quiet housework done at the same time such as ironing the clothes.

hello RawBill, It seems that you are a big time traveller? Even my kids wake up abruptly in the middle of the night & ask for water...but wont disturb me in watching those kinds of adult movies as they dont even get down from the bed.I will be watching or doing something in the other room while they are sleeping. Yes so many things get done in quick time when we are alone.
