Today

It’s been a good day. I’ve gotten things done. I haven’t had any big upset to my plans or emotional rollercoasters. My child had a pretty good day and I remained unruffled when it wasn’t. But, I could really use a hug. I could really use someone whose got my back and might rub it too. It’s 11:30 and I should go to bed but can’t bring myself to stand up and go get Wallace. We sleep better in one bed and I don’t jump up, heart racing, at 2am when he fusses in his sleep and calls out “I need you.” It’s just that I don’t have anyone to need.

    ❤ It's really hard & lonely sometimes.

  2. It wasn’t my normal lonely feeling that comes and goes. Maybe because I was so tired.

  3. Lindsay says:

    Could be. Tired & hungry or both combined makes things more intense.

  4. It is different. Not more overwhelming.

  5. Lindsay says:

    Well, less overwhelming is good! Could it be a yearning? Sometimes mine feels more like a yearning than a desperation, if that makes sense.

    You deserve that, and l hope the right person and time and place all come together for you, sooner rather than later.
