Sometimes Solicitude Is A NEED

I saw the meme on the left while pursuing social media this morning. It made me stop and think. For the last several years I avoid any group interactions, unless I have no choice but to attend. I have missed weddings, funerals, graduations, holiday gatherings, etc….

I have been bullied to attend certain functions, derogatorily referred to as a lone wolf, and sometimes forced into situations, during my own personal time, which have left me angst ridden to the point of requiring medication.

People take it personally, when it has nothing to do with them. I am living in a hell right now. The creation of which is because of my poor decisions, none the less it is a very real hell.  I need as much time away from others as I can possibly get, and do not need to be forced to interact with others during my free time. As the meme says, it has nothing to do with others — it is about my own well-being. 



I write of the damaged and broken, because that is the norm. For each person who overcomes their demons, there are hundreds, if not thousands, who do not.

It is their stories I tell.
