unfiltered...

s'funny...

i always felt like such a loser...
but, now, i don't.

i don't care if i don't have a friend to 'hang out with' every single solitary day. i like me. i like being alone. f'yask me, that takes a bold soul....being alone and being o.k. with it.

I agree.

there is a lot of good stuff from being alone. like, profoundly good stuff.

and the funny thing is that even when you're alone, you're never alone. know what i mean? it's paradoxical- i believe each of us is always alone, yet never alone. alone, cuz who can really get inside our heads, eh? but never alone because of all the connections we make and have in our minds... when i think of you, i am with you. even when i silence my mind, and i'm home by myself, i'm not alone because of the life force flowing thru me... the consciousness that makes me (all of us) "be." to truly embrace that "alone" is a strong and brave thing that i believe terrifies a good many of the human race! -K

i AM actually in heaven, this is true..it confuses and confounds me when some say (or imply) i shouldn't feel comfortable being alone...that i MUST be depressed if i have these abnormal desires.

i can think of no greater hell than having to be 'on' 24/7..

Unfiltered Artist Types
For some reason society frowns on anyone who is alone. As though you are doing something wrong and unnormal. I love how, in an interview with Agnes Martin, she actually recommends being alone. I remember some years ago, I said the same thing as you are saying here, and suddenly life got a whole lot better.

Re: Unfiltered Artist Types
aaaah, agnes...my hero.

the minute i heard her say, in effect, 'it's o.k. to be alone,' it was like the universe opened up it's arms and gave me the biggest hug i've ever received.

i equate social activity (for the most part) to turning on a blender, blaring the radio (christian rock, mind you) FULL blast, hearing the cries of a not yet weened infant (who, i might add, has a full AND leaking poopie diaper), along with the barks of a rabid, rat dog rolled all...in...to...one.

k....you might as well throw in the voice of arianna huffington..and then, and ONLY then, i might just muster the guts to buy and learn how to use a loaded weapon.

so, yes.
i'm a grade A freak.
i like my 'alone' time.

we should start a club..but, we won't have monthly meetings, cuz, well, we'd rather be alone.

I'm comfortable with myself, too. I used to think I was becoming anti-social, but then I decided I wasn't. It's healthy NOT to need people around you all the time...

((((hugs))) for you. There is a lot of what you do that takes a bold soul. Don't underestimate your own power, as hard as it is sometimes to feel validity, strength or purpose, alone or in a group.

You make a difference to many people.

Yeah, it can also be tricky if you're too comfortable being alone! Sometimes my friends might think I'm not such a great friend because when they call me to go out, I'd rather sit at home watching Gilmore Girls and drinking coffee in my slippers!

I'm always ready to jump and go when they *need* something, but most of the time its just calling for social things. I can go through periods where I can be really social for a year or two and then I always get too much and want to hibernate again or something.

Its good to find a balance, so it sounds like you're doing just that. :)

gilmore girls, really? i should start watching it then...if it's THAAAAAT good. i personally am all over 'america's next top model...' only cuz i love laughing at stupid pretty people.

i do think i've worked myself into a pattern since moving here, though. spring/summer=being with people......fall/winter=eeeeeeh.

I could be a total recluse and be ok with that.Salinger and Balthus I envy you. I feel most comfortable in my own little world. Besides, I have lost faith in most human-kind.

i think most of my reclusive desires stem out of a need to get to the matter in my own head, really. everything else is just static..

and i haven't lost faith in most human-kind yet, thankfully....not when there are people like YOU out there! we just have to figure out a way to get out of our shells long enough to procreate or clone ourselves!! HAHAHA
