Me time

My friend asked me a very good question, something along the lines of “Don’t you look forward to me time?” after complaining about having to be at home by myself now that Greg has left. I never thought I would be one of those people who depended on someone else’s company to feel comfortable but I do. I have lived six months by myself in my adult life. That’s it. Being alone makes me uneasy and I am not sure why. Even when I had roommates I always, always looked forward to them getting home. Even if we didn’t exchange words I found comfort that there was another body in the dorm/apartment/house. Am I alone here?

So with all this me time ahead I am planning on hitting the gym, reading and sorting out the house. Maybe I need to remember that spending time with myself isn’t so scary*.

*One place I NEVER mind being alone: a coffee shop. I look forward to my solo coffee shop visits.

One thought on “Me time

    My husband is like that! He really does not like to be alone at home, never has. Weirdly enough, I’ve NEVER lived by myself (just with a dorm roommate and then the hubs for the last 5 years) but I really love being home alone. I think this time apart, although really difficult, might cause you to start enjoying alone time.

    Walking around in your underpants eating peanut butter out of the jar and watching terrible reality TV is as awesome as it sounds, btw. 🙂
