Another day of annoying traffic, having nobody to talk to at

Another day of annoying traffic, having nobody to talk to at work, more annoying traffic, nobody to talk to after work, wasting time overthinking, making sure I have eaten anything and went bed early enough to be able to work the next day. Rinse and repeat.

@Scat It's a WHOLE different world today. Maybe people would connect a little more face-to-face if they would put their precious Smartphones down every once in awhile. Things were obviously far from perfect 30+ years ago, but I would give anything to return to the state of affairs back then. Unfortunately, this is never going to happen.

@jfoto44 I won't ask you to disclose your personal health issues on here, but I have been suffering from what has been labeled as severe allergies (nothing else has been identified from the numerous tests I have undergone) and there are some days when I feel quite good and others when I don't know how I can even function. So I know where you're coming from at least to some extent. But you do feel a temporary euphoria when you feel well enough to get out and do the things you really like to do. Being a group facilitator is great for the self-esteem and helps to provide you with a true sense of purpose. The volunteer work I have been doing for the past 5 years has literally saved me life on a few occasions. It helped to temporarily lift my major feelings of depression when I knew I was giving of myself to less fortunate people (even though sometimes it seems as if nobody is less fortunate than I am).

@venhvu Yes I can definitely empathize with you. Naturally if we are feeling better and are happier people tend to respond to us more positively, or at least we perceive that they are responding more positively, but it can be very challenging to keep that smile on your face when you are feeling lonely and hopeless. I think a lot more of us have felt ostracized on many occasions than you would ever guess.
