Sometimes I feel as if I'm the only person in the universe.

I am a little surprised that this recieved no comments.

This has been a harsh and cruel winter season and we've only just begun.

Don't want to overstep, but even in your solititude, there is company.

As far as 'being alone' goes, I don't mind 'alone' so much as I am not 'lonely'. When I lived alone and the outside world was work, training, and the message boards, I was good. Without getting to much into my story, I didn't want to lose sight of the peace of mind that I had by myself.

We only think that things would be better if ... sometimes I think we fail to appreciate how much good it already is...

Some responses from the Email Lions:

I wonder if that's worse than being annoyed by most of the people in the universe - or at least a lot of them that I've met.

You're not. Thanks for letting me (and the rest of us) know. I send you my connection to you, from just another perosn out there suffering under the illusion, most of the time, of separateness. But it is an illusion, the truer thing is the connectedness of us all, Much love in the dark winter night.

I think we all feel that way sometimes. Without that feeling humans would have never needed to create God or art or stories to keep the darkness at bay

actually you are one of the few thinking feeling people in the universe. Any consolation?

and that's why
you're never alone

Oh D.B. I'll start singing Michael Jackson's "You are Not Alone" and then you'll "snap out of it" No seriously, you know I adore you and you are NOT alone. Need my phone #? Anne

You may be only one person, but you are heard by many.

Rose said...

You are not alone Sweetie....we all have some regrets!

And,I for one am alone and of course there are many days that I feel lonely but not every day.

Hugs, Rose

Holidays, winter, special occations...these are the times that folks without close family or friends suffer from depression and lonliness. Please don't fall into that category DB. You are loved by so many.
Hugs, Joyce

I guess we all feel that way at times. Even when we're surrounded by our loving family.
