Many times in our home, I get no response. They may just be thinking or sometimes they cannot be torn away from a television commercial, but most of the time there is no conversation. They tend to get irritated if someone calls on the phone. But still it is not easy to not be acknowledged or heard. After about 15 minutes I write or talk to myself.
I guess it’s time to do the same here. After about 24 hours of no interaction I should simply talk to myself. I have been required to take care of myself many times and perhaps that is simply my burden to handle.
We have the animals, but even they seem to prefer the men. Perhaps I am just unlovable! Or maybe I need more naps.
Do you ever feel left out and alone?
