I’m trapped in this tedium;

Scared of the consequences of change,

Restless and agitated with the monotony.

I’m a free woman with all the opportunities in the world.

They say I can do anything I set my mind to do.

My mind can’t seem to settle anywhere.

I have friends who truly love me, yet I feel a drifting loneliness.

The chaos that presses inward seems to feel heavier today.

Yes you do have friends that care for you. Sometimes the currents flow slower than we want. But in time, the river will reach the sea.

God was that sappy!

Anyway, suffice it to say, you have friends who genuinely care for you. Count me among those friends.

Yeah it's like that some times. Know that even in your alone-ly-ness you are not alone.

"When you’re weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
I’m on your side. When times get rough
And friends just can’t be found,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down"
I think I just topped 5.25 on the Sap-o-meter and I'm not proud I had to steal it. Just be glad I didn't use Bobby McFarren or attach Club Nuevo version of "lean on me"
We love ya kiddo

There's nothing like a rough day. I think we can all atest to that. But the best part of about a rainy day, is knowing that there HAS to be a sunny day sometime. I'm sure yours will be coming soon.

I love to be in motion... active...adventurous...changing. I have a hard time sitting still...it feels boring or lazy. Sometimes stillness is what we need...like a caterpillar waiting to emerge from her cocoon as a butterfly. Even in the stillness there is motion (in fact sometimes that is when the most movement takes place). I'm thinking of you my friend, you may feel lonely, but you are not alone.

The ugly reality of existentialism, the fact that everyone is all alone. And right on the heels of one of the most insightfull posts I have ever seen, the one on Gamling On Love. After achievement comes emptiness until you can start working on another achievement you want to involve yourself in. Glad to see you're human, and not really a Saint yet.

Theresa,

I understand how you feel. But change is the progress in ur life. Sometimes change brings more than we want sometimes less than what we want. In any case it reveals that we needed to have the changes. If it brings positive output we know it was much needed. If it brings negative impact it means it was negative that is why we wanted to chane. Anyways in that case we know we tried our best

Love,
Nothegame

This, I get and, yep, it sucks. I've decided not wait for the world to catch up with me, anymore.

Wow! It's the Sap-O-lympics!

A girl would have to try really hard to feel lonely around here. There's something very comforting in feeling heard and understood even when you're having trouble understanding yourself. You are all fantastic.

I have a question about your poem: Did you feel less lonely after you wrote it? I find that writing down my emotions tends to settle my nerves, especially loneliness and anger.

Belive in yourself .. Changes are good and when they happen they are always for the good ... Everything in your life happens for the good ..

Friendship is the best thing which can happen to you .. When you feel lonely .. Thus is what i do .. I think of the good things which happened to me .. What I can achive and do ..

./thanks
