I am one of those people who can be completely content locked in my room for an entire weekend alone. I’ve always enjoyed observing and not interacting. I like getting lost inside my stories for hours and feeling like I was right there with my characters.
I adore my friends. We make awesome memories together. But I cherish the quiet of being alone. Of letting my mind wander and seeing what thoughts appear. Of hearing myself think. Sometimes, I have really entertaining thoughts. I actually find myself to be good company.
When I’m sick, I spend a good amount of time laying in bed thinking. Having cool dreams. Relaxing.
My favorite outing is to a big open space with few people. My personal nightmare is a crowded anywhere. Too much noise, too many people. Too much coming at me at once.
Do you feel the need to be alone or do you thrive on being around others?
