Home Sweet AloneCan we be truly alone when we live with others? I know and have experienced the truth of being alone in a crowd, but living alone brings loneliness to an extreme for me.
I don't socialize easily and I never have. I don't drink alcohol or coffee or enjoy the smell of either.
That leaves me to interact with only myself. While I don't think I could handle rooming with someone else (especially in this studio apartment) I still wish I had someone close by to turn to, or to go to for a hug.
Sometimes all I need is a platonic hug. (And digital ones don't do jack for me)
