I know the feeling JL. I do have one friend outside of the world of the internet. But someone here on AD who helps to..Listening to music ALWAYS lifts my spirit! It's like the best therapy EVER
Somebody making me feel super special? Well... not really... I have one close friend I can ALWAYS rely on and whom is ALWAYS there for me but that's about it... and then there's somebody else from AD who gave me a lot of support recently !!!
Isn't that so true?? Being a single mom of 3 boys I don't have the slightest clue!You know what amazes me? The amount of people (myself included) that are so achingly lonely....if we could just figure out how to reach each other, we'd feel so much better. *musingly* I say that, but I don't know how to do it.
Even though I don't know Mrs Chapman but what you just said is proof even to let us know she was very special to you! That's quite something! I have had a couple of teachers back in high school who were also supporting me, but can't say they made me feel special... At least they were there when I was having a rough time!My English teacher, Mrs. Chapman, in the 8th grade. She's passed on now, but her memory will always remain! She encouraged me strongly to "keep talking", even tho I had become deaf....Took special pains to help me after school with lip-reading, etc.
Funny....how after all this time, I recall her, her smile, her walking cane and her kindness. Yeah, she made me feel "special"! Even tho' all her students were "special" to her. Never forget her!...And BTW, I never told her "Thank You"! As I'm still "talking" to this day, because of her encouragement. So Thanks Very Much!! Never forget you!
How true the words ring!To the achingly lonely.....there is no one else in all of existence who can replace you. Being alone is quite different from being lonely......Loneliness is the absence of another. Aloneness is the presence of oneself.
