y_a_i_j_o In Japan, there is the concept of the outside face 表 (omote) and the inside face 裏 (ura).
We all know about this, a certain change in how we carry ourselves when we leave the house, a certain way we let go when no ones around.
Its not wrong to be nice and polite around people, its respectful and good manners. This situation, to be sort of pressured to behave a certain way that is considered acceptable by society can become a compulsion though. A compulsion to put on a certain face, be the way you are expected to be and not to cross certain lines.
To me, that is one of the reasons why social interaction drains so much of my energy. Its not necessarily the people who are especially annoying. But most interactions are of this manner, and only if you get closer into your personal circle of friends and family, you can let go a bit of the mask and its less exhausting.
But you're only really yourself when you're all alone.
No one knows you like you do, and only with yourself you can completely let go of the mask.
So enjoy your loneliness, embrace it. How can you know yourself when you always have to be someone else. The more time you spend with yourself, the better you know your true self and what you wish to be, without the influence other people have on your thinking.
Thats why to me spending time alone is a gift. This time that God wanted me to be with no one else but Him. This time when I am closest to Him. When no other voice distracts me of my own thoughts. When I truly meet my Self.
Don't be stressed out or sad about being alone dear. You're worthy of getting to know your Self first.  So that when you meet people God has destined to be a part of your life, you'll know that they are, because you know they like your real you, not who you are defined by social situations.

farmboy0315 Nine years ago a dear friend of mine gave me this beautiful Stetson hat. I repeatedly offered to pay something, after trying what seemed to be a reasonable amount of time I relented and took the hat, i did what any good friend would do, took the hat in, had it shaped, and then put it in a box... For nine years. This was during my bull riding days and she thought I'd get more use out of it, plus it's a men's hat. Problem is, I was nervous, how would I look in it, would it get dirty... The fears go on. I took a beautiful, valuable gift and hid it. The divine has given us so many gifts, and we often hide them, out of fear, or we wait for a special occasion. I put this hat on tonight and something just felt right, and so on a perfectly ordinary day, I showed my gift to the world, after hiding it for almost a decade. How much longer will you wait?

My arms are open
Warm, waiting, wanting
For you to slide inside
Wrap your arms
Around me
Cuddle deep into my smile
I love the smell
Of your happy
And the sound of your
Contented sigh
Listen to the
Rhythms of my heart
Let my soul wrap around you
Bringing you peace
Security and joy
You are safe here
Lay your burdens down
Squeeze a little tighter
Don't be afraid
That sound you hear
Is love building shields
To fortify your whole being
Inhale deeply, exhale slowly
This is a gift
From you to me
And me to you
To lift your spirits
And mine
To connect our energies
In a moment, divine,
Sublime medicine
A healing in the reckoning
My arms are open
Warm, wanting, waiting
For you to
Hug me.

yofitpt In my case this is usually on a hunt for #BenandJerry Joking aside- #FindYourOwnPath not everyone will understand what you're doing or why you're not following the crowd, if you have a #dream or a #goal that isn't supported by others dont be put off.
Listen to your #Intuition it's smarter than we are! Don't #Procrastinate & waste time. Go for it & #ChaseYourDreams rather than #GoWithTheFlow like a dead fish... #MondayMotivation#RandomRamblings#DontBeADeadFish#WorkHard#Hustle#Grind#ReachYourGoals#WakeUpandSmellTheCoffee#AimHigh#LawOfAttraction#PositiveVibes#NoRegrets#Grow#FlexYourMind#AlbertEinstein#Happiness#Achieve#MakeItHappen#Bodyfitness#Bodybuilding#MaximumsGym#Yofitpt

phoenix_sag Is it what's held in her eyes
Or what's between her thighs
That fuels your love for her?
Is it her hopes and dreams
Or the sounds of her screams
That keeps you coming back for more?

phoenix_sag You will see me in your dreams
And every time you think about cumming
I'll be there
Just at the seams of your vision
You'll remember and reach for me
Regardless of who is there with you
You'll remember the tenderness of love's kiss raining all over your skin
The way I held you underneath an indigo sky blanketed with shining stars and
Reintroduced you to your beauty with a caress so gentle it brought tears to your soul
Don't fall in love with people like me
My love is so pure that you won't help but compare the next and the next with what you had in me
You'll be on a fool's quest to find it again
You'll hunger for my touch in every hug
And taste the tenderness of my kiss in every sunset
Every sunrise will leave you aching and longing
Coated in the sweetest regret.

amyonamission_ My journal, I don't write in it often, only when I feel like it. I do however stick everything and anything that's important to me in here. It's jam packed with random bits and bobs that sum up my time away from home in my new home 💭 #journal #singapore #journeysofar #iloveit #randomramblings 2w

shailz_deshmukh I have been thinking for quite a long while upon my #onelittleword for 2015.. I loved the idea and how people are motivated by their choice of the word.. So after a lot of late night contemplation () I have decided my word for this year will be INSPIRE. It gives me the drive to do better than myself, so I can inspire others too. #onelittleword2015 #randomramblings #shailzeeswordfor2015 2w

phoenix_sag I see you on the cusp of
what happens now
and who knows when
your desire overflows
where lust meets
love's horizon
give in...
cum for me. ~Phoenix Rising

Amaro Phoenix Rising
phoenix_sag Sometimes...
I wish I was
a voice
on the breeze
so I could be there
whenever
you needed a
comforting assurance that
you
are loved
and
you
are, indeed...
Amazing.
