I am on my own.

Completely, totally and utterly on my own here.

My parents, though they live close, just can’t help the way they’d want to, they just don’t keep well enough.

I don’t have any friends yet.

I have no one to turn to.

No one to stop and chat with up the high street.

No one to go for a night out with.

No one to bring in the New Year with.

I am on my own here.

I wonder how long I’ll feel that way.

I hope it’s not long.

I need it to not be too long.

I don’t function well without people around.

People to talk to.

People to have fun with.

People to drink with.

People to do nothing with.

I am on my own,

and it sucks.

    ((((((to you!!!))))) Could you find out local happenings? Maybe there is a mom’s club around or something? A local pub? If you get to know some moms, maybe you could do play days were you take hers for a day or even 1/2 a day and then she takes yours. It gives you time for YOU. Then you can babysit each others and YOU CAN GO OUT! You need to find a way to BE AROUND PEOPLE! A verse in the Bible says in order to HAVE friends, you must BE one. You’re never gonna meet anyone staying in your house, Sweetie!

    Get a local paper. See events. Go to the library…a movie? Smile at people – you have a great one!

    We’re here to listen to you ….and give virtual hugs 🙂

    Thank Cel, I’m trying my best to talk to people from nursery etc, and getting out and about as much as possible with the kids in the hopes I bump into people to strike up conversations with. I’m getting there, just need to be patient – totally not my strongpoint >_<
