We live in a more and more isolated world. Which is strange because we are so easily connected and there are just so many of us, too.
Statistically, people are lonelier now than even two years ago, and as it has been well reported… people that are heavy into social media are more depressed and feel even lonelier than the average person.
So feeling lonely can be seen as actually being quite common and normal nowadays. And even though most people having meaningful relationships in their lives it does not seem to take away from the strong feelings of isolation.
I get that. I get that very well. I was also wondering what impact this new Chinese flu will have on the world. We already see how it’s gotten into so many different countries now. China is on lockdown. People are scared. Isolation seems the right course of action. But……is it?
Today was a productive day. Yearly physical, blood work, girl visit, and STD check. 5 loads of laundry done. Another bushel of paperwork finished for the housing program. The doctor said I may have fractured my kneecap; maybe. It’s a possibility we have to rule out at least; via x-ray.
I’m feeling rather melancholic. Not sure if it’s the weather. I am also missing Brad. I had all this resolve when we first broke up and now I’m wavering; but keeping myself busy. The best revenge to a break-up is to be your best self possible and find someone who is a better fit and makes you even happier. Right? Theoretically.
I am no where near that motivated right now. I’m knee deep in where’s that box of chocolates and let’s watch my ass get fatter mode. Add on the “what Netflix show should I start up?” mode.
Feeling utterly human and frail. Suppose I don’t have much choice in that; being as how I’m human and all.
I’m remembering this picture a woman drew once. It was a picture of Wonder Woman in Superman’s embrace. She was crying and he was comforting her. I told her I’d love that as a tattoo and honestly havn’t thought about it again until just now.
I am a strong person. I had to be. So then it stands to reason I need someone strong by my side, but I’m not talking physical strength really; I’m talking emotional strength. I say this, yet I have no idea who or what life will present.
Wouldn’t it be true that as I change and grow and let go of my baggage a broader range of possibilities may become available? I like to think so. But this is me going out on a limb of faith here.
All hail to the possibilities.
