I’m a popular girl really, I know a LOT of people, but I don’t have anyone I can call a friend.
I made some new friends today. I was out in the wild for about 6 hours, walking about, making new friends, exploring and taking photos. Other half was fishing and I agreed to come along and go for a hike around.
There’s nothing like some time alone in the country to give you a new perspective on things. Lately, and longer ago than lately, I realised I don’t have any true friends. Analysing why I don’t have any friends is difficult, it involves a lot of inward searching too. I’m a popular girl really, I know a LOT of people, but I don’t have anyone I can call a friend. Being in lockdown has been a really isolating experience for me, as I realise that no one has checked up on my well being, nor have I had anyone to check upon. Yet, my jobs, my community work, my family, all mean I am busy, and I am out mixing with people (social distance mixing) and all the time I am serving others.
However, I come home and there is no one. I have discussed this with one or two people and I have tried to modify my own purpose, and yet I still am unsure as to how this will gain me a friendship circle. I believe that I just haven’t met the right person yet. It sounds cheesy, but as in life not every person meets a partner and settles down, then not every person meets a person to be a BFF with. I have more or less come to accept my situation, one day, someone will come along that I will gel with, but in the meantime not. Why on earth did I get into this long ramble about my lack of social circle? Ah well, I’ll leave it here now… Perspective
Usually I take photos of other people, places and things. But today, I decided to use a different perspective and turn the camera around and take a photo of me.
My new friends today are fabulous, they were interested in me for who I am. They didn’t ask anything of me … would you like to meet them?
