I love being alone , in my own world it's inner peace I don't have to be around a crowd to feel excepted or feel loved and appreciated My inner peace gives me all of that .
It brings the feeling that most people flat out never know, the feeling of being alone in a crowded room. It's something I feel everyday when going to wardroom events (work events in the military). I had a friend discover what that feeling was after coming back from deployment, and watching how it changed him was something else. Brought us much closer as friends.

Actually going through it w a friend rn, he’s been being toxic and disrespectful over videogames (I’m 28 he’s 25, it’s my buddies lil bro who I’ve known forever) I’ve left it alone but everytime I join discord he’s straight violating me and our other friends tell him to chill and it’s pushing me to the point of wanting to just fight it out but this quote is perfect and it’s hard to be the one To pay no mind. Daily it pops up in my head and I have to find ways to release and not allow it to affect my well being. It’s so dumb that this is even a situation

@Dylan Hayes Sounds like the difficult guy is a narcissist, is very immature, has some mental issues, or all of these. It is impossible to reason with narcissists who are troubled people with mental health, and social adjustment issues. You Tube has good advice on how to deal with narcissists. You might want to leave this group for your own piece of mind. There are better gaming groups online without these annoying and bothersome issues.

@Tien I meant more on the emotional/mental side of things. Most people I know want to be distracted from their own thought processes. I’m sure it has something to do with not wanting to take responsibility for how their life is going because blaming everyone and everything else is just so easy. Also I don’t think I’ve met a single 80 year old man or woman that gives a crap about what they look like in the mirror beyond the clothes they wear lol. I certainly hope that I don’t assuming that I make it too ok that ripe old age.

When I was a kid my family moved constantly. No sooner that I would make a friend then we’d move. I quickly learned that having friends wasn’t worth it and so I learned to become my own best friend, for better or worse lol. As an adult, however, I looked back to High School and realized that one or five friends that are solid is far better than a hundred who know your name but are superficial. Currently I have one friend. I’m happy with that. I know when shit’s going to hell, he’ll be right there with me, ready to fight if need be. I chose my wife the same way: we been married 23 years, some of which were VERY rough years and I can say with complete confidence that she’ll jump in the trenches with me and fight. That’s two people in my life that I know I can count on, and that’s all I need. I love being alone… but I love being with my family and friend.

My parents abandoned me and my childhood Was one of many yrs of abuse. I missed my biological parents and siblings. I always found myself alone. As I grew older I tried making up for lost time. I learned to be alone. And it was ok. Today I am a born again Christian. Today I am still alone but not lonely. I also know Jesus. And he does not want his child to be alone. Therefor my fellowship with like minded Christian’s is very important. My relationship with my Father in heaven is very important. I realize that I never was alone. I like me I like being me. I can do anything and go anywhere and not depend on another human for my happiness. I know true happiness is pursuing Christ and his will for my life. I have found unconditional love. A love that is not found on earth. I’m not alone anymore. That’s true freedom.

I worked at a company where the owner loved having social events now and again. Myself and a coworker I worked with in an office space of three, tended to not like "social events". Myself mainly because I liked very few at this company as they were truly all selfish and clung to a job they only got paid well for for being the buddies of the owner. One admitted to me once that they only befriended the owner because he treated him to sports events, concerts bars and food etc. on their off time and that he wouldn't have that at another job so he pretends to be the owners friend. I was discussed as it's how the others treated the job as well. Only two of us didn't participate in that and we were always criticized for not wanting to "hang" out for the company BBQ or after work drinks. I prefer my own company and what I'm doing rather than time with the fakes

That would be annoying... Getting ready for the social event, having to come up with conversation, spending half the day with coworkers on your day off ... It's like going to work without getting paid... Screw that, I want to put my feet up, take a nap when I get tired, do laundry and get organized, watch a movie or play a game... Not feel obligated to waste a day off with your coworkers

The significance of time: Roman philosophers emphasized the importance of valuing and managing time effectively. They believed that time is a precious resource that cannot be regained once lost. Men often learn too late in life the importance of prioritizing their time on what truly matters and making the most of the present moment.

I guess I am lucky, I am 28, but I wasted my whole time in between (I tryied to do something with my live time to time, but failed miserably). I realized about this, and now more than ever I try to start my adult life with no more wasting, I feel -and I know is like that- I can't loose any more seconds, what I've lost, I lost it, but I can still use what I have ahead

Ruminating Stoner
Marcus Aurelius' quote, "Ask yourself at all times, "is this necessary?" is an interesting one. I find that understanding and wisdom may be garnered by performing perceptively unnecessary things just because they are possible. Necessity infers the application of a function or utility. The formerly unnecessary ventures our species has taken for the sake of curiosity has transformed our understanding of the cosmos and our place in it. There was a man who once claimed that he had no special talent, that he was just passionately curious and his pursuit of discovery and wonder granted us first, special, then general relativity. That man's name is Albert Einstein.

All my co workers congregated in the office to come agains an employee who was quite difficult to deal with. All were against his attitude wanting him fired . Realized this was a kangaroo situation taking place with no defenders of the accused. I turned my back and walked out , never turning back.Well the accused lost his job and then I became a new target of the accusers because I didn’t comply with the evil spirits conducting their judgments on a fellow employee. No regrets on my part.

You are scratching at a truth with women. When they know you don't mind being alone they try harder to be someone in your life. At least thats been my experience. They know you have not settled for anyone and it makes them feel like their position is in danger. They know you DGAF and feel like their place isn't set.

I spent my entire life alone. I thought that after a while when I stopped wishing for friends that I was finally fine, therefor I was happy. I couldn’t have been more wrong. It’s true that I was fine being alone, that I could live with it. But after finally finding that group of people that understand who I am and actively cares about my well-being, I’ve learned that “happiness,” being happy, is so much more than being okay. It took me experiencing true and unfathomable happiness to realize I’d never felt this way in my life before this. I wish I had learned to reach out sooner. So much time being fine, I could have had so much more. But, the past is the past, I’m just happy I get to experience this beautiful feeling in the present. Better late than never, I’d say.

i think for me, loneliness just means your content with being in your own company, that's not being selfish. i think people too often feel their lives with things, people, etc and they think its going to make them feel more whole, somehow but i also feel that these things are not meaningful, its only when you can start to enjoy yourself, look after your self that you can figure out what is important to you, who brings peace into your life too x

Not possible. For instance, someone you love or know dies young or kills themselves. There is no such thing as "do not let." Sometimes things happen, terrible things, and I guarantee those things will affect you no matter how you try to not allow them to. Tell that to people who have PTSD from traumatic experiences.

Christopher Pineau
"Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one," really resonates with me, because as someone who is a walking gray area between macho jock and soy boy? It annoys me to constantly hear about what a man should be from "masculinity coaches" who are really just grifters preying on insecure sorts who need a role model. I don't need that noise in my life; I'm just the best me I can be every day. If people like it, good, if not, that's on them for not being able to appreciate someone who is his own man. Something I strive for daily.
Coupledyeti Vonvanderburg
"Speak softly and carry a big stick." A man reserved against violence, of which he is imminently capable, is a man on the path of righteousness. You're doing God's work, Christopher.
Good on you, if you strive for it, I think that's all that matters.

Here's one of my personal favorites; “If you don't get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don't want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can't hold on to it forever. Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death. But change is law and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.” - Socrates

I was in a relationship for seven years. Unfortunately, it was a toxic one. For whatever the reason was, I stood beside her. It has taken myself and I am sure many others to realize that, we were more alone in that relationship than being single. Imo.

I like Marcus more than the next guy, the first couple chapters of Meditations are some of the greatest lessons you could ever learn, but his advice concerning being alone is suspect. The man was the last of the Five Good Emperors cause he couldn't be bothered to find a good successor like his predecessors and passed the empire along to family. When you have a responsibility sometimes liking being alone can be a vice.

After 25 years of marriage, now being on my own, all alone is the best thing that ever happened to me. I have friends and coworkers but it’s made me resilient. I didn’t know I was the top that I could do it. I’m happy I enjoy my solitude. I enjoyed my time to reflect and think about where I’m going. Business is good my lights getting better every day. I wish I would’ve known this shit when I was 15.

I miss haveing someone to share life with but while being alone I feel a greater connection to everything , in a spiritual sense. My soul soars with peace and i am no longer human,but spirit. That i believe is God in me. There is nothing like it.

I’ve been basically alone since the plandemic pseudo, useless, partial, unscientific lockdown. My wife believed all the propaganda and moved out. At first I was totally distraught and stressed out, totally first rated every day. As time went by I learned to accept what I can’t change. I learned that there is tremendous peace in living alone and freedom as well. I made a few new friends and worked on myself. Started working out frequently, changed my diet and lost 25 lbs. My two greatest lessons learned are to always seek and trust god, and to never listen to what someone says. Far more look at the choices they make to see who they really are and what motivates them.

​​​@Khris Williams ahhh, i agree BUT!! You can't help but see why religion is so popular! This person decided they weren't alone because of their belief that God exists and so they can never be lonely. It's like having an imaginary friend when you're young and have no one to play with. It helps them accept death better, for both theirs and those they care about. "He's with God and we'll be together again in heaven" says so much. If one truly believes, it keeps them a productive citizen in life, right? We don't want to break any of those commandments. It's like the go to sanity thing that helps a lot of people get through life. It's also used as an excuse and not in a good way. Instead of having something bad happen, instead of trying to change things so they don't repeat, it's chalked up to 'God's will or intention'. Mostly, it cracks me up a lot of the time but where would we be today without it? I KNOW the world would be different for the simple fact of how many takeovers of countries, etc that were done in the name of religion? Most societies originally base their diets, customs, calendars, holidays and laws based on some type of religion. It's a lot to ponder. Overall, is religion a good or bad thing?

Some of these resonate such as trials, anxiousness and solitude. I enjoy solitude it gives me peace and freedom. I need to remind myself that the worries have no power over me

I love my girlfriend of four years, and cherish our time together. But I equally crave time for myself. When she leaves for work and I have the evening to be alone, I am very happy. That’s not a dig on her, it’s just a chance for me to recharge and realign.

I dont see the point as being content to be alone like so many seem to be commenting, but to be content accepting others for what they are, and not trying to change them, as you would not allow them to change you. I believe this philosophy is summed up best with "live and let live"
