So many of us feel rejected.

Feeling rejected is based on our expectations having been crushed. It's also human


That's pretty nice.

Hmmm. Possibly, though I'm honestly feeling quite empty at this point in time.

Nobody at all in your life? Family or friends?

My day to day is basically either being dad/working and finding time to sleep. It's not that I don't have people, I just don't have a lot of time for them. My comment was referring to me anyway, I'm emotionally disconnected from everyone save my kids.

Reach out and make some friends it well make a big difference.

@maturin1919 If you're that busy maybe try making some friends around your kids?

I have friends. What I don't have is the time, energy, or desire for socializing right now.

I'm going to attempt to clarify what I mean.

The emptiness I feel is not a result of not having family and friends; I have both. My custody/work schedule doesn't leave much time for socializing, but the isolation this causes is only a small part of the problem. The real issue is that the past two years of my life have taken an immense toll on me emotionally, and the result is, in relation to the meme in question, that I gave so much of myself trying to right the ship that my emotional tank is on E. I don't see myself having the means to give 'so much more' to someone else romantically. I've tried, and my thought up to this point was that I simply haven't met the right woman to light those fires again, but what I'm coming to realize is that those pilot lights are out for the time being. This has seemingly been confirmed by my dating experience over the past eight months or so. I cannot form any sort of romantic emotional attachment, despite seeing some ladies I would otherwise say are damn near perfect for me.

It's been fun having my ego and, uh... other things stroked, but even that has lost any interest it once held.

@maturin1919 Ok. I know exactly what you're talking about now. Thanks for the clarification. Take care.


That is soooo perfect!! Thank you!


Sounds about right.
