My heart goes out to you.
I don't know how many times in my life I felt quite similarly.
Being a "bird of rare plumage" as my Navy Human Relations Project boss called all of us on the staff . . . did not help . . .
It also did not help that . . . as another boss put it . . . "Bo is the kind of person who knows what you're thinking before you know that you
don't want him to know what you're thinking."
And my above average intense personality did not help attract quality friends in a winsome way. LOL.
Being a kind of Jeremiah personality certainly has had its drawbacks.
A few of those periods in my life, I found the best way out was to FORCE MYSELF TO REACH OUT--to those hurting more than I was; to store clerks; to
folks on the street; to folks in old folks' homes; to people in the line at a store . . . to initiate a kind word . . . a compliment on the way they
were relating to their children . . . on their hat or vehicle when getting gas . . . to note to another patron in a restaurant that I was happy to see
how their family members cared for one another . . .
Even to write notes on 3 X 5 or 4 X 6" cards . . . a simple sentence of encouragement . . . and leave it with a harried clerk or waitress . . .
--anything that forced me to reach out to others in a kind but non-threatening--take it or leave it kind of way.
And If I didn't get the 'return on my effort' I was hoping for--at least it forced me to reach out of myself a bit more. And that was good in
To be sure, in our era, there seems to be an abundance of people who--whether they are awash in conspiracy stuff consciously--they are awash in the
propwash of the globalists' conspiracy efforts, economic trashing, corruption and tyrannies.
People are desperate for hope, for encouragement . . . even for merely a kind word. I found, as desperate and alone as I was, I could offer a kind
word. And, that doing so, I felt better--about myself and about the world.
Please stay in touch. The isolation is no fun, in my experience. Feel free to PM me.
