Sometimes even with others in the house, ALONE screams out to taunt us.
Some friends who are married with kids talk about feeling alone. I can’t relate since I AM alone – it’s just me and two fuzzy felines. Some days the phone doesn’t ring, my email scrabble partner is out of touch and my dinner out gets cancelled.
We all feel isolation at times no matter who is around. We have a part of our soul that we want to share with others. We NEED to share…and we need to know we matter.
In our culture we don’t find a lot of undivided attention anymore…and I caught myself doing that Christmas day…sorry Marjorie.
If your bluetooth is to your ear, your iphone, reader or TV are keeping you from talking – or more importantly LISTENING – STOP!!
Take some time to unplug – people matter!
PS – If planning a nice dinner out – make it one where there are not 20 screens on the wall!
