Can anyone else relate to this ?
Hi Travels and All,
Reaching out to other people can sometimes feel daunting and risky. It is wonderful when we do feel a connection of some kind, even if it is fleeting and with a complete stranger we will not see again.
I sometimes pop in to our local post office for a chat with the staff there if they do not have any other customers, even though I don't want anything. They very politely talk back to me!
Some days I try and find things to do by myself that are enjoyable. The other day I drove to a different town and had a look around. I talked tot he lady in the tourist office and strangely enough a couple came and talked to me while I was sitting on a bench reading.
I do have a husband but we have separate lives really and separate bedrooms. I sleep most nights hugging a pillow. When I think I would rather my life to be different I become quite depressed, so I try and count my blessings instead.
Sometimes it works, other days not so much. People tell me I should be thankful for what I do have. Yes I am. Maybe desiring more will also help me to improve my life in some way and be more thankful in the end for what I do have.
I don't have the courage to leave and start again, so to those of you who are bold enough to do so, well done to you!
Cheers all from Dools
