77 Best Alone Quotes For Those Moments You Are On Your Own

Alone

Just because you are alone doesn't mean you are lonely. Sometimes you need to be alone to think things through and know what you need to do with your life. Being alone gives you peace and serenity to listen to your intuition.

You can think and see your life more clearly. You are able to recognize the things that are pulling you down and the people who are bringing no value to your life.

You can clearly make big life decisions and know you are following a particular path because you chose it and not because someone else chose it for you. Some people naturally love their company and enjoy being on their own more.

They are described as loners and will always recoil to their own space, even when in a public space. They don't like crowds, and being alone feels safer for them.

Even when you don't naturally like to be alone, it is a vital trait. You learn to take care of yourself, show yourself love, give yourself advice, and lean on yourself for support when times get dark.

It teaches you to be independent. It shows you that you can still thrive on your own. You are able to know how strong you really are and face adversities better because you have faith in yourself.

Even when you have close friends and family around you, it's essential to take some time out just for yourself. You will be able to become self-reliant so that even when you don't have your support system with you, you can still hold yourself up.

Our collection of alone quotes reminds you that being alone is a strength. People can still go miles while alone and succeed. You should never be ashamed or feel bad just because you are alone.

Its rustling in the garden all night long.

I didn't like anything. Maybe I was afraid. That was it - I was afraid. I wanted to sit alone in a room with the shades down. I feasted upon that. I was a crank. I was a lunatic.

Her funeral Sunday. I wondered if the Colonel would get back by then, where he was. He had to come back for the funeral, because I could not go alone, and going with anyone other than the Colonel would amount to alone.

But I really live in a box. I’m always locked away in the studio, so I never get to see those people anyway. And if I do see them, I don’t even think—to be honest, I’m so focused right now I couldn’t even see myself encountering those individuals that I spoke about from my past.

I see…so that’s what being alone feels like. (internally) I wanted to see things from her perspective. I wanted to understand, even if only a little. After all, if I couldn’t, what would be the point of being with her?

Leave me alone…! This is why I didn’t want to be near her. She’s the kind of girl who makes me feel this way. That time too…I wanted to break down and cry. I wanted to run over to her, put my head on her lap, and trust her with my heart, like a child who goes crying home to her mother. I want to complain to her about how unfair this all is, about how weak I am. And I have a feeling she would let me. I think she would accept me. But I can’t do that to her. She doesn’t deserve that. People like me cling to kind people. We seek them out. We leech them dry. That’s why I won’t involve anyone else in this. It’s better if I go it alone. I’ll keep running alone. Nobody has to understand me. It’s easier if they hate me. It’s better if I’m all alone. That’s what I decided, and I intend to stick with it. I decided I wouldn’t cry…

I went through the door, and I remember going into an empty classroom and thinking that I was too early. When actually, what happened was all the parents rushed in, removed their kids and never sent them back. I spent the whole year in an empty classroom with just my teacher.

Bedtime is fraught with fear and disappointment. When it is just me alone with my restless body and mind, I feel like the whole world is asleep and gone. It's very lonely. I am tired of being tired and talking about how tired I am.

So quiet that house was in the night, so quiet all the other little homes around it were that held the elderly in them and the old alone or still in couples sleeping early, waking, lying awake and thinking about the past.

Tonight - I am alone in the night, a homeless and sleepless nun! Tonight I hold all the keys to this the only capital city and lack of sleep guides me on my path. You are so lovely, my dusky Kremlin! Tonight I put my lips to the breast of the whole round and warring earth. Now I feel hair - like fur - standing on end: the stifling winds blow straight into my soul. Tonight I feel compassion for everyone, those who are pitied, along with those who are kissed.

You are alive tonight for a reason. You were created to love and to be loved. You were not meant to be alone. You are not alone. You were meant to do life with other people.
