A lot of the writing prompts don’t resonate with me, but the one from a few days ago did. Do you enjoy being alone?  Would you rather be around other people?

My answer is yes to both. There are times when I crave being alone, when I just want to be by myself and do whatever I want. Even if all that I want to do is sit and do nothing. I enjoy the silence and stillness. This is probably why I stay up later than I should. Just to get that downtime.

But then again, I like to be with people. It energizes me to have a fun night out with friends. It’s great to connect with people, and know that others care about you and are there for you. I usually end up staying too late at these things too.

I guess the thing is I like being alone or with others as long as I don’t feel lonely. I guess the thing is, no what how many people are around I want to feel that it’s my choice.


  1. I need my time alone. I find small talk and meeting new people hard. But when you are with good friends it is no work at all.

  2. DS1 is very much like me; we both like to be alone but not lonely. I think its remnants of being an only child who had to be self-sufficient a lot of the time. I need to be alone to recharge.
