Being a lone wolf is not all bad. Like most folks, I have had my share of heartaches. Over the years I have learned that if you base your happiness or well being on another human being, then you are not being fair to them. They have their own path to follow and it may not coincide with my path. I get immense joy and pleasure from my children and grandchildren but at the end of the day or week I have myself to live with and not them. As they grow they become more and more independent, as it should be. Then I will be alone. The widows and widowers I have known that survived the loss of their spouse without going downhill were the ones that were happy within themselves. I do not mean that in a negative way. I know of two couples that when one died, their spouse was dead with 2 months. They could not handle being alone. I have been married to the same woman for 42 years and we both realize that we do not own each other, we are married to each other. Either of us would survive without the other.
Being alone or lonely are two different things. I enjoy people. I love going to yard sales, part for the serendipity and for the chatting with people. I enjoy being around people and I enjoy being by myself. Quite at home with either.
As for the woman that wrote to you about how cruel some folks are here on Cure Zone, I hope she hangs around. As much as I try to avoid the arguments or negativity, I do get attacked on occasion simply by having a different opinion from some one. I have seen some mighty good people leave because of the negativity. And I miss them terribly. Lots of good information left with them.
Have you ever seen "Harvey" with James Stewart? I feel kinda like that, just blissfully plodding along enjoying the moment.
I rather enjoy being a lone wolf. I am at peace with myself. At least for now.
