When was the last time you felt really, truly lonely?
Two Christmases ago I was at home by myself for almost a week. My partner was in Nova Scotia visiting his family for the holiday and I couldn’t visit mine until Christmas Eve because of the cats. I had no one to talk to. All my friends were back at home, in another city or town and I just had my cats.
I remember when I was severely depressed that I felt lonely but I had never actually been alone. This felt worse. At the end of my time alone one of my sisters came and stayed the night so I wouldn’t feel so bad :P
This year I will only be alone for a 2 days before I go visit my family.
