But I Like Being Alone …

I’ve had this heated debate with a coworker about this so I decided to post it on my blog and see what you readers would think about this.

I personally think that having an alone time to spend with yourself is good for your mental health so sometimes I would disconnect from the world and have some peace and quiet thinking alone. I don’t really need someone to be there for me, I don’t need someone to help me if I had some issue unless it’s a big deal obviously but I’m okay with it, I just like my personal space. It’s not like I don’t trust my friends or anything, maybe because I’m an introvert but I think it’s completely fine when someone just wants to be alone. 

Now the other side of this argument as the coworker was saying that it’s wrong and you should be there for that person who just asked you to be alone and I would disagree with it to an extent because if I know the person is just going through some personal problems they’ll either talk about it if they want to or keep it to themselves and deal with it on their own. I won’t be upset if a close person to me told me that they want their alone time because I’m not the kind of person who would pressure someone to talk to me.

Some people take this as an insult and a bit too personal like “Why aren’t you telling me what’s wrong, why don’t you trust me” I get that but I don’t mean it that way, I just like being alone sometimes … It’s quite simple really, not exactly complicated.

I would love to think what you think about it, do you agree or disagree ?

Thank you for reading and have a nice day.

  1. Well in my opinion it depends on the person. But insisting to try to be with someone who wants alone time is bad.. then it’s better to just let them know that /if/ they need you, you’re there for them.

  2. i think it depends on how well you know that person..for me if i have a close friend i would be able to distinguish between his “alone time” and the time he’s choosing loneliness out of depression or because he couldn’t reveal something to anybody .At that time it’s your duty to know how to make him sort out everything in order to help him or at least release him


  3. Well sometimes people say they don’t want to talk about it, when really they want to talk about it, but need people to pull the story out of them. However, I do agree that alone time is ESSENTIAL. I need me some alone time, otherwise I become very grumpy and if I’m dealing with someone, I definitely need some space to sort things out on my own before I can talk to someone about it. It doesn’t mean I don’t trust that person specifically, it just means I need a moment to digest things before I can be open about it with them.

    Also, I agree with what @maryem_khribi said, in the case it’s because the person is depressed it might actually be necessary to talk to the person and probe them to tell you more in order to show them that you care about them and stuff. But yeah, where’s your friend at, I need to have a heated discussion with her about this, people need their alone time! lol
