I am a loner at heart.
I love and treasure my time alone. I attribute some of this is because growing up I was an only child, and I was parented by a woman who also loved "her time" and I could not interfere with her time to herself.
I do like to be with people, but in limited amounts. For the last 16 years, it seems I have not had much time to myself. Motherhood, does not provide for much time alone. Being a hockey mom also affords little time alone.
My idea of a fantasy vacation would be a couple of weeks alone with a stack of books to read. I would love that. I do wonder at what point I would start to feel lonesome.
At times I tend to be almost downright, anti-social, I worry over this tendency in myself at times.
I do like to be around other people. Really I do.
