The title of this post is a little tongue in cheek. I mean if you are reading this post then maybe you don’t mind me being frank and saying, I get it. We are all lonely sometimes, and I understand that some of us are a lot more lonely than others are!
Like look at me for example. I’m lonely a lot. Heh, look who I talk to?! I don’t know why I’m so lonely. I mean I’m a nice enough person…I just don’t quite know how to connect in a permanent way with people. I shy away from that kind of long term commitment. If I were to try to pin down why I’m sort of reticent with making friends I’d say it probably stems from my life history. I mean, it isn’t exactly like I have people hounding me for my attention. And so I just sort of hibernate sometimes. And then I feel like an outsider and then I get comfortable with that attitude and I tell myself that we all can’t be people persons…but then I feel confused because I am a people person! I just get drained sometimes and it feels easier to be a loner.
It’s not though. Being human is being a social animal. In cutting off friends I’m cutting off parts of myself.
Do you wish you had someone to talk to? Do you wish you had someone to show a special object to? Do you wish you had someone to tell a new idea to?
