    Lorax got a reaction from nojoy in Thoughts running thru my brain lately   
    Your post reminds me of a quote I read:
    “Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it's not because they enjoy solitude. It's because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.”
    I can definitely relate to this. 
    Hope things go better for you.

    That woman is no better than you, try not to let someone like that put you in this state of mind. In fact, next time if someone acts like that just knock something else off the rack and make it look really obvious. Then tell her, "Now you have something to be annoyed at."
    We already have enough to deal with in our lives without people like this adding to it. I hope these feelings pass quickly for you and tomorrow is a better day.

    It's hard for me to find the words to be supportive even though I want to. I just wanted to wish you well and I hope you are doing ok.

    I'm sorry for your loss.
    I lost my dad last year. At his service I remember seeing my little niece, who was not even a year old, sitting there exploring the wonders of blades of grass. In a time of so much sadness that little thing made me smile.
    I hope you are able to find some of those little things.

    I've been in one of the worst downswings than I've been in for a long time and have felt like this as well.
    I don't have any great advice or words of wisdom.... but wanted you to know that you are being heard.
    I know how much of a struggle it is every single day but we still have to fight, even when we don't want to.

    Ah dangit, I replied to Scatter before refreshing, and didn't see AloneGuy or Lorax's comments!!! I'm sorry about that!
    Heheh, AG, I promise you, you wouldn't have to feel lonely if you posted a blog or two once in a while! It's possible that I'm either blind or nuts, but if I DID manage to see a blog entry by you, I'd definitely comment! :) That reminds me, I'm pretty lazy and scatterbrained sometimes, too, and I might not have looked for recent posts by you!! Gotta get on that, too! Gaaah!
    Lorax, my thoughts exactly. I'm not here to get some kind of grandiose applause, but it's nice to just get a friendly nod whenever I do manage to be able to get up enough energy and inspiration to reply to someone thoughtfully. The other peeve is when you go out of your way to come up with a reply that you hope could end up really helpful to relieve the person's suffering or feelings of self-worth, only to have them say thanks, but then go right back to restating the same complaint…It's as if you've worked so hard trying to help, and they haven't even bothered to read it, much less consider your idea. :( It just hurts, I guess. I swear it's not a vanity thing. I really DO want to be helpful.
    I'm always so grateful when you folks here make comments on my posts or blog entries, because each and every one is important. I live a pretty solitary life in a culture that's not terribly warm toward outsiders, so each kind comment is attention from a stranger reaching out to me that I otherwise would not be able to get in my every day life. I'm certainly not entitled to it, so to me - it's a gift! One that I'm very grateful for! You're also welcome to rant here all you want. It adds to the discussion in an interesting, and I hope healing way - to know that we're all in this together. :)

    I can relate to this as well. I don't like a lot of attention but I do try to do little things for people when I can and they almost always either go unnoticed or that I am SUPPOSED to do things for them because they are so much better than I am. Living they way I have for so long has given me the perspective that the 'little' things are the most important. It just feels like I am the only one who thinks this way.
    Sorry.... didn't mean to rant on your blog. I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone in your thinking.
