    I certainly like my own space and when it’s not possible I will go out somewhere! I am happy in my own company but I also like being with friends, however, happier in a small group! I actually do a lot on my own because not everyone shares my interests so I will happily wander round art galleries alone or go off for a day somewhere – you only have yourself to please. If I don’t get space I get grumpy! Yes, on the whole I enjoy being alone and it does help me recharge. As for listeners, maybe there should be more. There were times in the last year or two when I seemed to be surrounded by everyone elses problems which weighed me down, including a friend who I usually confide in. I felt then that I was on my own and had no one to listen to me.

      Thanks for your comment. I’m much the same as you.
      In the full post, it is stated that loners are often good listeners – but as you comment, it often means we feel we have no one to listen to us!
      Also, if I’ve been doing a lot of listening (like when I was nursing), I then want some time alone (so I didn’t want to listen to family members’ tales of woe when I got home – difficult getting a balance)

  2. Thanks for the reblog! I agree about the listening . . . I wish people more often listened to me. It seems they rarely ever do so, and I think that makes us all the more appreciate the fact that people want others to listen to them. But not having anyone listen to us is a drawback. You’ve got to find the right person for that . . . or maybe blogging helps there.
