Being alone, being lonely.

There's a big difference!

I love to be alone, but I hate being lonely.

Being alone with my own thoughts, being alone with my own company is precious time to me. I work in a busy environment, people are always around. I enjoy a busy social life (when I want it). So time alone is something I always try to get once a week. Time with no one else around. Time where I can just shutdown and do my own thing.

Being lonely on the other hand is a terrible thing. You can be lonely in a crowd of people. You can feel isolated, different, or simply "not there" with no one or everyone around you. I've been there and it's not a nice place to be. Fortunately I haven't 'been there' for a long time now, and I hope to never 'be there' again.

Wishing you all the aloneness you want, but never loneliness.

hbgirl I hear you about the kids. An ex-girlfriend had three boys and getting any time alone when we lived together was virtually impossible
