Thinking about how lonely the word lonely really is, what with those two Ls standing tall, seperated by so many short letters.

Sometimes I just want to give up.

Not to mention it's the word "one" between the two els.

Its a big part of the human condition...

But, to some extent, its a choice we make I think. I often feel the same, but usually I can look back and see that ultimately, it was me that was making myself lonely.

Or something like that. It sounds good, but, I've been surrounding myself with friends constantly, and I still feel it too. I dunno man, the few times in my life I haven't had that feeling were worth it, ya know? Giving up doesn't help anything, it just ensures that you'll always feel the way you do now. That's not what you want.

But, of course, its easy to say, or to type. Its a lot harder to do it. Tell ya what, I'll take my own advice, if you try too. =) There're a lot of people out there who care for you. Might not be a "Reliationship" with a capital R, but those close friends can sometimes take away the feeling, even if just for a little while, ya know?

Just, don't give up. Sure, those two "l"s are separated by a lot of things, but sometimes you have to just stand up and say, "These floors are dirty as hell, and I'm not going go take it anymore!" (Ok, so I used that in somebody else's LJ too... I'm reusing man jokes, that's bad) But, lonely is also an anagram for "Yell No!" So, that's my response to giving up. Just yell no. =)

(Man, I think I killed my brain last night. If this made any sense whatsoever, let me know)

Well, dispite what I might yell when I'm drunk, i have no plans on giving up, per say. In fact, I'm going to be pushing myself for more in a little bit here.

I am always surrouding myself with friends. I am always pushing to be around people because being social makes me feel better. But sometimes there just isn't anyone around. It's something you live with.

Yep yep. Indeed...

I hear ya though, I've been dealing with the "everybody's going home with somebody else except me" thing for years. =)

also had an interesting conversation last night while off in some other world about not having slept next to somebody for a night. No sex, no expectations, just having somebody there. And man, I miss that.

But, you understand, you've said it a lot. You can surround yourself with friends, but sooner or later you have to go home (or they do), and you're left with the night to yourself.

Yep. Especially when all your friends (esp patr0ck) are 5k miles away.

No lonely... you are an amazing person, from all I can tell. Believe me, I know how it is.

Don't give up. I haven't, and I live in NYC!!!
