I guess I'll start with: Not even my biggest problem but I've been alone my hole life, I realize as I hit these buttons that I am writing this...solicitously. My aim isn't to make friends today or to change life today. I am already changing my life for the better. In fact, I am doing petty well. But, daily I think about ............. It is what you call chronic-long term and not extreme enough to excite a response of the most urgent and immediate kind. However, I am getting old. I am tired of feeling this way. I've done things and been places that I can tell a crowd about anytime, and all go quiet, and all enjoy listening to a good yarn. I haven't done enough for me to feel good about myself. I think regularly about not living out the rest of my days this way. I am cutting this short because I don't feel like writing anymore. I'll continue looking at others posts but at the moment I'm tired of talking about me. I wonder if others feel like this?
