Together we can build a better life but alone we may feel full of strife we sit and we commute we eat and we wait patient is the night owl who flies before dawn ... and our feelings overthrow our hearts ice under the feet waiting to meet, someone when they arrive all the while alone and empty or so we think
Many people seem to be lonely, alone or wanting more company. Obviously, the last few years has been difficult and more isolating for everyone.
However, I looked at my own life and realised I too have become a victim of this loneliness. Before – or at least before the pandemic – I was perfectly content alone and being by myself. Only have I realised this last year has been particularly isolating for me and having developed a depression as well has made it difficult. I never considered being lonely a factor, but it is. I do interact with people, just not as much as I used too. Plus having lifelong health condition is itself a factor in depression too.
Why am I sharing this? Well, I wanted to talk about my feelings because I am sure others have felt this way too. Many of us go day to day without sharing a though or word with anyone. Talking to people is a great way to socialise and of course improve mental wellbeing. That doesn’t mean you have to talk about your feelings all the time, just that if you are lonely you are allowed to say that. Don’t be afraid to talk about your feelings.
It’s okay not to be okay. I reiterate this with love. I also feel like WordPress and my followers are an extended family. I enjoy reading all your posts and seeing your lives. Thank you for being a part of this wonderful platform and sharing your posts with me and others.
