Oh, my heart goes out to you PS. You have to find a way to break what ever habits that are keeping you alone. It's all so cliche, all the things ppl say, "Join a group, donate your time... etc etc." But you have to make some change or like Einstein said, you're just repeating the same behavior, looking for different results. Do ANYTHING different today... anything at all. Be encouraged that you matter. You have purpose and meaning and you matter!!! But what good is Shakespeare if it's fallen behind the shelf? What good is the Bible or the classics if they're on a shelf too high to reach. You must be accessible to others to be appreciated. I have this desire to spend Thanksgiving in a soup kitchen... I don't know if I can convince my family of this... but I have this desire anyway. Is there anything like that you could do? (Meals on Wheels?) Love others before you ask for love in return. I know you will be rewarded if you make that effort. (Was that too preachy? Im sorry... I can't help it.)
Are you getting enough rest? Are you able to treat yourself to a good meal? Remember that our minds often decide to go off and blow things out of proportion. Like Will says, keep things in perspective.
You're never truly alone as long as you're communicating with other human beings, be it online or otherwise.
Alone? Like, in a room full of people? Like no family/friends? Like, you are rejected in some way? I ask because I have been alone. I kinda liked it! Probably because I've always been "surrounded". I needed some space. But you are sad? I hate to hear that. But encourage yourself. You're a good writer. It's obviously one of your talents. Be courageous. SSomebody loves you (I just know it). Forgive yourself (whatever that means). You are here. Tell yourself why.
Miss C: I saw a movie about a story in the Bible about King Solomon. He was king of Israel, son of King David. In this movie, he fell in love with the Queen of Sheba. Now, at this time, Solomon believed in the One-God, but fell into the acceptance of many gods through his passion for this alluring queen. He even got her pregnant. In the end, she developed a love for the One-God, gave up her many gods, and she left King Solomon to go back to the land of Sheba to have the child and convert her country into a One-God believing country. Isn't that a sweet story? Not true to the bible, however. Total fiction.
Bible report: In the end Solomon becomes quite corrupted: Has 700 wives, princesses, and 300 concubines. The bible states: "and his wives turned away his heart."
no... he did not. But one of his son's did. I think my point was that it could be worse for Parry. Can you imagine 700 wives and princesses and three hundred concubines? Why, that is a city of women! *Being alone is like being in heaven: he who does not value solitude does not value freedom.* ( Even an atheist can agree.)
Just so I know you understood me; as long as Solomon lived, he had a chance to return to his first love. Also, I think loneliness is human. Solitude often produces lonely results. Man was not meant to be alone. Some are sequestered for a time, but it is natural to desire some companionship. It could be worse, yes. But sadness is heart-pulling.
what sign are you? My guess is Capricorn. Women love Capricorns. But these men never realize it. They sulk, they stay inside, they huddle on their computer writing things… when they do go out it is with the guys and they watch women play pool and are too shy to do anything about it. They think that gal over there would never want anything to do with them. She's too beautiful, or she's too smart, or she's too uppity… or she's too blond, or not blond enough or whatever. And when they do finally strike up a conversation, they are disappointed by the shallowness of the poor girl who just wanted to say something witty, but failed, because he made her so nervous….
I just received this comment on one of my hubs. Totally unrelated to this thread.
"Thank you for your time, considerations, and efforts, in order to help your fellow citizen successfully (hopefully) dodge the gauntlet so skillfully presented to the public. May Karma be kind to you."
No at all, even though most of us have that same feeling at times, you have written some very uplifting and encouraging hubs. They are just what some people need at one time or another. Go back and read some of your own hubs, read the comments, read your fan mail. Get some rest, take your vitamins. Eat some chocolate.
I am a little annoyed with PDS now. He has lured me over to topical hell with this thread and suddenly I am interacting with complete nut jobs. I posted in the political forums just now and I don't even talk nut job!
You really don't have to speak the same language... just say something that sounds contrary and you'll be fully entrenched in a conversation before you know it. Or just state whether or not you believe in a higher power in the religious forums and bingo... you're in again. Or you can just say "boo" to me and I'll always respond. I have no life, plus you're my favorite poster.
Im watching a zombie show now. It's like one minute in. Im terrified. A kids gonna turn around and its gonna be a zombie and its gonna be horrible! Ack it was! Her face is half gone. Why am I watching this? I hate horror more than anything on earth. Ugh... this is my world Will. Work, kids, an indecent amount of online scrabble, church, hubpages, trying to find a good series to watch on Netflix, and now Im writing about a book (I forgot marriage counseling). But that's about it. No trips to Paris, no beach bonfires, nothing to write home about. However, I *did write something personal... something you have yet to do.
At the age of thirty-seven she realised she'd never Ride through Paris in a sports car with the warm wind in her hair. So she let the phone keep ringing and she sat there softly singing Little nursery rhymes she'd memorised in her daddy's easy chair.
Her husband, he's off to work and the kids are off to school, And there are, oh, so many ways for her to spend the day. She could clean the house for hours or rearrange the flowers Or run naked through the shady street screaming all the way.
Thanks for the visuals, guys! Beth has thrown off her long gown and is now running down the streets, flowers braided into her hair. I don't know if she or the neighbors are screaming… she is a bit chubby from eating a tad too many croutons, (even though it is becoming increasingly hard to get them in salads…) and Parry is chasing her… with his computer mouse still in his pocket!
lol... and this is why you're my favorite. Could you just write down funny stuff all day and I will read it when I get home at night? I love to laugh.... why can't I stop saying personal stuff? If only I had something interesting to share. Where's Pds when you need him?
Paradigm. I feel you are alone because you choose not to see how not alone you are. Look at all the happy smiling people that came here to tell you how worth while you are! Look at the responses! You try to validate your self in places like the snake pit. And users in their dont value you. Try to keep to places that think of you as a good person, not just a conversation piece. You write brilliant hubs that mean something to the people that read them. Stop selling your self short. Seriously. You are worth more than you admit.
What? Do you misunderstand a lot of jokes or just mine? "I do have feelings" implies emotions... but the joke was, she was stepping on me personally... causing me pain by stepping on me. Do you understand?
...you are laying on the floor wearing a crouton dress and she is stepping on you… you are obviously under a table in a restaurant… and you have feelings like around your stomach or back where she is stepping on you with her shoes. I can even hear the scratching of the soles of her shoes on the toasty, crunchy croutons. oh the pain.. Please... Some of us do take it literally!
I don't know what that is. Hey! You can see all my hubs, even the ones I unpublished after trying to make an honest woman of myself. How can you see them all? Wait, can you see the titles or the actual hubs that I have unpublished?
Thats because a lot of people never check out hubs. They are focused on other things. I just read the work of shinkicker. That is some funny stuff. Especially the one about interior decorating in police stations. It was funny. Real humor not a parody that does not make sense. I wish more hubber wrote like that.
