On this Friday evening, who else is spending it home alone, if you're willing to admit it like I am.
I was never alone, a hubby and three kids and various animals, big house, other people's kids. I used to dream of a day when I could at least go to the loo in peace. Then 31.03.2017 it was all gone. I was alone and homeless. I wish with all my heart I could have it all back.
Ha! I'll totally admit it! And I'll even take you one further. I actually prefer it that way.
I get to do what I want when I want to. I can take a hike in the woods (did that) and nobody to tell me to come home at a certain time or go to X at a certain time blah blah blah...
If I had my way, I'm not sure I wouldn't just head the hell up to the mountains and stay in them alone except to come out for supplies.
Shit - I'm starting to sound like the uni-bomber... :-0
I spend most of my evenings alone, Friday is nothing special. It's just me, some time on the interwebs, some sewing and finally reading myself to sleep. If I'm lucky, Chloe the cat may make an appearance and meow in my direction before the night is over.
My thoughts are if you are on this page/forum and know yourself a little you are probably aware of being more fond of your own company than tolerating, even suffering, company of others whom you would prefer to be without. Being alone is not the same as being lonely as you are probably aware. There is a saying which sounds kind of cliched that suggests that being alone is not the worst thing; the worst thing is being surrounded by people who make you feel more alone.
Why don't WE always make sure we look after each other and keep us in our hearts? If one of us is alone make sure there is at least someone who cares. You know distance is not as big a thing as time and we are only ever less than 24 hours apart wherever we are? So heads up, shoulders back and smile you have a huge big family! (Oh and best bit..no one will interrupt you on the loo!)
