Sometimes you can be surrounded by 200 people and yet still feel lonely. Now before some of you resident MLP clowns start in with the hooker suggestions, many of us don't roll that way. I'm being kinda serious. I don't see any real way of fixing the scenario other than to control the thoughts within the mind. I mean, you can't just go out and buy close knit family and friends that would die for you. These things are built up over time. When a person goes through struggles in life, like in business, and on a personal level, you really start to see who is there for you, and who's not. It's quite the startling experience....especially the responses you receive when you ask for advice. Anyway, back to the inner recesses of my mind. Trying to find the damn light switch in there. It's a pretty dark place these days. I guess in retrospect, being a sarcastic person and coming off with dark humor is a way of coping. I saw that with Jim Carrey. Anyway, Happy New Year and brighter days perhaps.
