It’s a strange feeling, being alone (and I’m not talking about simply sitting by yourself). When your family are pre-occupied and your friends are busy and the one person you’d usually talk to, you can’t… you realise you’re well and truly alone. It’s odd. It kind of makes you feel small and insignificant and a bit forgotten about. This is going to sound like such a needy post but I don’t mean it like that, I wrote this because I know I can’t be the only one who has this feeling sometimes and your thoughts and comments on the topic would be appreciated. Even when you’re surrounded by people all day and you’re keeping yourself so busy, once you’re home and no ones asking you about your day (to your face or through a phone) and there are things you want to tell specific people about but you can’t for fear of annoying them whilst they’re with other friends or simply knowing they won’t reply.. I think that’s when it sets in. You can sit for hours with no one talking to you, and maybe it’s because we’re so used to being in contact with people all the time that when it stops for a minute we feel lost, but honestly, when you realise how alone you are in that moment it really sucks. And whether you try and ignore it by blasting music or watching a film or reading a book, waking up the next day in the same situation doesn’t make you feel great. I know this post was short and on a slightly different subject to what I tend to write about so I hope you’ve liked it in some way and like I said, your thoughts and comments are always welcome.
