Do You Like Being Alone?
Sometimes, yes. I find that it is often better to be all alone than be in the company of people who you can’t stand to actually be around. Or be with people where you have to pretend to be someone else and can’t behave the way that you normally do. So sometimes, it is better to be alone.
Also, if I can’t be with the people that I want to be with, do I accept substitutes? It’s ok if those are new people and I don’t know them yet and hence it is only right to give them a chance to show that they are good and nice to be around and we can be friends. That’s why I sometimes wish that I could find a job where I could either work from home or work in a small office with just a handful of people around or in a small office all alone. Without sacrificing the salary part ofcourse. That might be cool and only have to interact when I want to.
Most off days when I am not working, I prefer to be on my own as well. Unless I am meeting one or more of a small core group of friends or family. I dunno, that’s how I feel like since the last few years.
