Not to come off as haughty, but one thing I remind myself when I am lonely is that it’s the perfect time to hang out with the wonderful person I hope everyone else is enjoying. You can do a great number of things alone, but I feel you.
I’ve been going to Sheri’s for about a year now, and it seems quite possible to build some genuine friendships with some of the ladies. But like all things in this world, don’t expect them to last.
I hate losing things, too, but new things that I have found very pleasant have always entered at the closing of another thing. If I held on too tightly to many things, there would be a great many things I would have never experienced.
