Daily prompt: no apologies — being alone

What’s the one guilty pleasure you have that’s so good, you no longer feel guilty about it?

Being alone.

I used to feel bad about wanting alone-time. It seemed selfish when others wanted to spend time with me but I wanted to be by myself.

The reality is I function better when I have plenty of uninterrupted time alone. It gives me time to think, process things,  and replenish my energy. I don’t have to filter anything that I’m saying or doing, so it’s not tiring. I’m unrestricted. I can never be completely unrestricted around others, so it will always be a bit more work than being alone.

  1. Yesyesyes! I NEED alone time, and I do’t make any excuses for it any more. If I’m going to function well, I have to be able to restore reset, and recharge. No apologies!
