Always Alone, Never Lonely

They feel hurt when I make excuses to avoid conversation. And it’s not that I don’t like my friends. There are times that I do enjoy their company. I love all of my friends very much. They just don’t understand how I can enjoy being all alone all the time.

It’s not all that bad. When I’m alone, I never feel awkward. I don’t have to impress anybody. I’m free to just be me. I can think more clearly and I’m able to express myself in all sorts of ways.
I don’t think there are many other people like me.

Most people I know are pretty outgoing and easily enjoy the company of others. You always feel sorry when someone’s all alone. You feel sad because you think they’re lonely. No one likes to be lonely.
But I’m not lonely. Just alone. And that’s just the way I like it. Is that so wrong?
