I Like Being Alone But I Hate Being Lonely


I’m the type of person who enjoys being alone. I like to walk home alone with my music. I like to stay home alone Friday nights. I just like quiet and time to myself. But I don’t like being alone for a long time. I don’t like being alone long enough for the bad thoughts to take over. I guess what I’m saying is that I like being alone, but I hate being lonely.

  1. i am alone but not lonely. being alone is my me time having peace and quiet time out from the world that is too loud and complicated…me time is simple time…i enjoy me myself and i
    atleast no one can hurt me deeply especially if deep feelings is involved.
    i am happy together with my music even when alone. Music is my best companion it soothes me lifts my mood too… i don't see anything wrong by being alone. To each is own…Respect!
    my opinion…just saying

  2. Alone time is good to soothe your inner soul and mind..
    We can connect with our inner being and that makes us in tune with the universe..
    That's when the magic happens..

  5. I no longer feel "lonely' – I used to feel true utter loneliness while married/kids- in a crowd or alone even….. that was just a me problem unresolved. Once I made friends with ME n accepted her fully & grew to love her, I LOST that lonely place of Hell… I still love/want/need alone time quite often, but I am human & a basic needs of connection, belonging, cared for/loved- for me that feeling is not a term "lonely" that I would use… thats simply needing another humn being in some companship- big difference. [ Lonely, can ONLY be corrected/filled from needs met within yourself – others just satisfy our basic needs]

  6. "This silence, this moment, every moment, if it's genuinely inside you, brings what you need. There's nothing to believe. Only when I stopped believing in myself did I come into this beauty. Sit quietly, and listen for a voice that will say, 'Be more silent.' Die and be quiet. Quietness is the surest sign that you've died. Your old life was a frantic running from silence. Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence."
    Rumi <3

  7. Yes. The transition from alone to lonely, I get that same feeling. This piece describes me perfectly. I'm lucky enough to have married a man who also enjoys his alone time so, as weird as it may seem, we're able to spend time being alone together. We no longer get lonely. And if we need true alone time we can have that as well and the other completely understands.

  8. I know this feeling too well. I've always been an outcast and kinda socially arkward all my life so I'm use to being alone but at times loneliness overtakes me. I think I'm good in a room with 1 or two people rather than crowds

  9. hmm you are right…. but I do believed it's just a transition not permanent as I was saying …there is no permanent in this world:-) I also believe you will not be lonely because all of us are destined and have one another one for you and one for me 🙂 🙂 🙂 Be happy pls:-)

  10. You can try to fill that void with friends kids family and still feel alone. Why are we afraid of emptiness? Is it that we are afraid of being nothing? Did you know the root of the word alone is all one?
