In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Cut Off.”
When was the last time you felt really, truly lonely?
This is a good question, but I guess I do not really have an answer, see I understand the difference between lonely and being alone, but I honestly cannot remember the last time I had either. I am surrounded by family, friends, co-workers, I never seem to get any down time; I’m always on the clock.
I used to feel lonely before I found my Soul Mate, Moth. I could often be surrounded by people and still I felt truly lonely, as I did not have the other ‘part’ of me. Since Moth and I have been together I do not think I have ever truly felt lonely, a little lost sometimes, but not truly lonely.
To be alone – I know this is something that some people hate the thought, but I cherish it. I never get an real me time. I am surrounded by Co workers during the day, I am surrounded by family when I get home, I have extended family and friends to catch up with. The only Me time I really get is first thing in the morning when I wake up (Moth has already gone for the day and the kids are still asleep) and the travel time in my car, which is usually taken up with tasks I have planned for the day. Occasionally I have an evening or few hours on the weekend to myself, if everyone at home is at work, but honestly it doesn’t happen very often, and even then I am never truly alone, I usually have these 2 at least following me around at all times.
