Am I the Only One?


I’ve come to the sad realization that the majority of my time is spent playing solitaire on my cell phone. There is no doubt that I am around people far less than I am alone. I often wonder what makes people too busy to reach out. Don’t we all enjoy coffee or lunch with a friend or do those things fall so far back on the list of things to do that we don’t get around to friendship and companionship anymore? Am I the only one noticing this or have you been feeling lonely and isolated lately too? I miss the days where I could walk out my front door and talk for hours with neighbors. I miss the days when my schedule including people who I loved spending time with. I miss laughing and sharing and bonding. What has life become these days? Am I the only one?
