Re: tolerance of lack of same/ alone

Oh, I dunno...I've been with my husband for 16 years, had kids for
11...you'd think I'd be used to all this company, what with him, them,
the pets, the friends, etc...but there are days when what I want most in
the world is for them all to (temporarily) vanish...sometimes I truly
miss the days when I was living alone, on my own, no one else in the
entire world to be accountable to, no one to have to talk to or
entertain or fulfill their expectations, etc. I really love my husband,
kids, family, and friends, but I am by nature a very solitary person
though I know my life is richer, for me, because of the gift they all
are, so it's a constant trade off, I think, no matter how one chooses to
live, single or coupled. You just have to find the rewards in your
choice where you can find them.

Hello Kitty,<br> I found that the longer one lives alone the more
difficult it is to form<br>a relationship where the two of you move in
together, marry or what ever you<br>choose where you live together *all
the time*. Whew!! The changes, the<br>adapting to taking another into
consideration if you simply wanted to go to<br>the bathroom by yourself.
Been married for a bit now and still have trouble<br>once in a while
with two people in this house at the same time. Does not<br>mean I care
any less for who I am married to.... but... somehow it is all<br>worth
it at the end of the day.<br> Gene E. Bush<br>Munchkin Nursery &
