    Lonely

    My husband and I split two years ago. I don't know how we went from two people who loved each other's company to two people who were islands unto ourselves even when we were in the same room, but that is what happened. I have one friend. Ten years ago, I had over forty friends. I...

    I Play It Safe

    Someone told me recently that they wanted to see me.  When I wondered what he meant by that he was quick to explain that he didn't mean visually.  He meant emotionally.  He said "I want to see your heart with it's gaurd down, to hear you speak without thinking, and...

    Sad And Pathetic...

    That's what my miserable existence is based on now. Life is funny, when we start to live is a countdown to die. So, what's the use of living, what can we take from life? We have lots of people in this world and they just don't care about each other, there's only greed and people...

    Where To Turn?

    I will try to keep my story short. I grew up in foster homes. Was finally able to connect with my dad and developed a great relationship. Then he passed away when I was 18. My daughter was born 20 days later. I was married but am not now. I have friends but every time I let...

    Very Few Anyway

    It seems like I'm always at a loss for anything to add to conversation. I don't watch much television, follow sports, politics or the news....I read and watch movies but my tastes are neither mainstream or especially intellectual. It's rare that a discussion I have anything to...

    Accepting My Differences

    In a way this is exactly what I've been trying to do and it isn't always easy. I get frustrated when I handle a situation in a way that I feel could have been better but I'm learning to accept myself and I know my dad accepts me. The problem is being accepted by a parent isn't...

    I've Always Been This Way.

       I remember as a kid, my mom would have some kid over every now and then, usually the grandson of the lady across the street.  We lived 'in the country' so there was no 'neighborhood kids'.  I always hated it.  I wanted the kid to scram; leave my...

    Where Are They?

    The people I can talk to, relate to and in turn they will relate to me? They're not at my job, they're not my friends or family. I know athiests that don't know what Hawking Radiation is. I know NASCAR fans that can't change their own oil. I know CFO's that don't know how stock...
