All the Un-Lonely People…


Wow…I just had a nice visit…and dinner…with a close friend…she’s one of those friends…that I don’t get to see very often…and…we don’t even talk…all that much…but…the connection…is always there…right where we left it…it never fades…never goes away…

I truly love that connection…and…I’m fortunate…I have several good friends…that I feel that way about…

Living alone…I could very easily…get lonely…other than work…I don’t get out all that much…especially during the week…and…by choice…I rarely go to events

Bertha…says…you don’t have to be with the people you love to feel their presence…and…that…sometimes…there’s no lonelier place…than…a crowd…

Actually…she’s right about that…I’ve always felt lonelier in a crowd…than home alone…for some reason…I find it hard to connect to people…in a crowd…even the same people that I do well with…one-on-one…probably because…I’m an introvert at my core…with a splash of extrovertism…just enough to confuse things…

She also reminds me…that…being alone…isn’t the same thing…as being lonely…and…that…my connection to my friends…is what makes the difference…

Which makes me think of a line that I once wrote…it went something like…we may not be together…but we’re not far apart…now and forever…you’re always in my heart

So…thank you for the visit my friend…I may not see you again for a while…but…I won’t miss you…you’ll be right here with me…every step of the way…

  1. Wow, Jane, that’s just how I feel too, I dont actually live on my own so I’m rarely alone, but my friends are spread about all over the place and I dont see them too often, but when I do the connection is there straight away.
    The crowd thing – well I dont cope with that at all, even in a crowd of friends, I just retreat into my shell and let them get on with it.

    • Joy…it’s funny…a lot of people don’t get that although we are outgoing in small numbers…we clam up in a gathering…I find it difficult at book signings and things like that as well…which isn’t a good thing…oh well…something for Bertha to work on…not that she was getting low on material…LOL!

      Have a wonderful day…thanks for your comments!

  2. What can I say? Kindred spirits. I’ve never felt lonelier than when I’m in a crowd of co-workers/acquaintances that I sort of know. I may be alone, but I’m not lonely.

    • Peggy…we are definitely kindred spirits! I do enjoy watching people who seem to ‘work the room’ with finesse…it just isn’t me!

  3. I don’t do large crowds very easily either, but get me in a small group and the dash of extrovertism in me comes out.

    • Donna…thanks so much for stopping by…I’m with you…in a small group…I’m on…in a crowd…I’m shy…I think there are a lot of us…extroverted introverts running around…
