I lived alone for about 12 months.
This was during my adjustment and recovery period after being kicked out of the church.
My family were still hardcore Joho's and lived a good 5 hour drive from where I lived.
The solitude was fantastic. I was able to accept myself for what I had done, and what I had become.
I guess it was a form of therapy for me, I also had some amazing lyrics and songs run thru my head.
Yeah, I know the feeling Viv, coffee and smoke and no one to enjoy the simple pleasure of it with.
I needed that time alone, at even had my sister visit for a week as she began her exit from the borg. That was good.
Now... I am totally on another tangent.
I have a wonderful partner and 2 little 'uns who keep my feet on the ground.
