Confession

Even though I am a private person who usually takes comfort most of the time in just being alone in my own house, there are times when I am lonely. Last night was one of them. I hate when that happens.
It doesn't happen often but when loneliness hits, it usually hits with a sharp THUD up against my heart. And it hurts.
Fortunately today I woke up with the feelings all gone and I have to work today which is a good thing probably, I need to be around people.
Mr. Loneliness sneaks up on me sometimes when I least expect it. I'm glad he doesn't visit often and I'm glad his stay is short.
I'm really not alone you know, not emotionally anyway. I have my best friend here, and family and some wonderful women who I share my soul with that I've met here on this very blog. But physical loneliness is hard to deal with sometimes. There's a lot to be said for a touch.

Consider this a hug. I can't ever remember feeling truly lonely. I have felt alone, but never lonely.

Hope today is much better.

Hi Shirley, well then you are lucky! Thanks for the hug! I needed it. And for the well wishes too. Sometimes people don't undertand the difference in feeling alone and being lonely but here is one. Thanks for getting that.
