I Am Lonely
I have no family. I have no partner. I have no children. I have no friends. I am all alone. I pretend to people at work that I am happy and that I have a good life so that they don't doubt my ability to do my job. I would never openly admit this to anyone that knew me, I would be too humiliated. I wish that there was not a stigma attached to lonliness. I wish I had the courage to just go out and meet people. But being lonely is self perpetuating and I think I am now frightened to speak to people. And I often think, what is the point? What contribution do I make to planet earth? And I don't know what to do about my predicament. I am just telling you this, because this is literally the only connection I have to a social world. I suspect no-one will read this. I wouldn't blame you.
