    Re: Deep Thought #2

    I tend to be a bit of a loner. We have friends that we enjoy spending time with but I am quite content with my own company, too. I think what matters is most is if you are content with your life/lifestyle.

      Google HSP , Elaine Aaron. Very interesting stuff. It helped me stop wondering and to start celebrating.

        Up until 3 years ago, when I got too sick, I had 24 of them. I bred and trained Arabian cutting horses since the early 70's. No big-time stuff, but did well enough to support the habit. Now I have my Main Man, a cutting and reining-trained 16 year old stallion, and still one mare. Sadly, I'm getting puny enough they will have to go too. They have to be cared for, and I won't be able to for a lot longer. I don't talk about them much, mostly because it hurts too much to have them go.

          I moved here and made plenty of friends, but they kept moving back to the mainland. While that was happening my family passed away one by one. Then my separation from my husband. I hope my daughters realize what a jerk he is before I lose them too.

          But you know what, that's not what is going to kill me early. It will be going swimming in shark infested waters. And I'm not doing that anytime soon.

            When I first met my mother in law she asked about who I was. I told her I didn't like being alone. She said, " Oh, I'm so sorry, you seem like such a nice person, maybe you should get to know yourself and spend some time with you. You might learn to like it" I took this to heart. I developed hobbies beyond my children and my husband....that's why I sew...that's why I read...that's why I don't watch tv...that's why I tried (stress on tried) to learn the fiddle...that's why I have cats and bird and garden and flowers and cooking...I got to know myself...and I really LIKE me now. I enjoy talking to my own children, my quilt forum,texting...but I am not so dependent upon dinner parties and going out and being part of an interactive group. So, maybe we all just have gotten to know ourselves and we LIKE us.

                Precisely. After being married and divorced 3 times I learned that I don't NEED anyone around to validate my existence. I don't NEED anyone to entertain me. And quite frankly, I realized I PREFER to be alone with myself.

                  What an interesting thread....
                  I was an only child, so always thought that was why I needed alone time...
                  It seems there are a lot of us quilters with the same thoughts....I love my dh and my 4 children and 10 grandchildren very much....that being said, I do need alone time...sewing, reading,and watching tv are at the top of my to-do list...I don't have any need to socialize regularly (we did that for many years)...I have many friends that I talk to regularly...also, I do not like to shop much, except on line..
                  I have reached a point in my life that I don't need to please everyone and I am happier for it!
