Sometimes, the loudest person in the room is also the loneliest

Sometimes, the happiest person in the room is also the one feeling the deepest despair

Sometimes, the angriest person in the room is also the saddest

Sometimes, the most self-confident person in the room is also the one battling the lowest self-esteem

Sometimes, the one judging everyone else in the room is actually judging herself

And sometimes, the quietest one in the room is actually screaming for help

  1. I have felt all those things and more, Sue. I’ve struggled my entire life with extreme bouts of loneliness. It can be quite debilitating.

  2. Much love.
    Everyone is fighting there own battles. No ones has conversations anymore. They fight battles alone.
    Just be kind. Say a kind word.
    It’s so simple and yet so hard… for most folks. I had this conversation all this week. We are staved from having connections. I feel for the younger generation. They don’t go out. They don’t get into bar fights about things they are passionate about. It’s really… what?!? I’m at a loss for words.
    After losing everything I loved, I started volunteering. It gave me a purpose. It saved me. There’s so much that can be done. The question turns to what can I do? How can I be of need? Is it to tell a woman look awesome in her dress without being creepy? Is it to donate to a charity? Is it just to smile when it’s hard and life is difficult?
    Damn! I hate menopause. I was going somewhere with this.
    Love you.
