Well...

If you have low (or no) expectations of others, you will rarely be disappointed...

“Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.” ― Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper

*laughs* I am become a loner. Not necessarily by choice or deeds, but perhaps by necessity. As in most anything else I've done, I do this... without regret, guile or guilt. It just is.

Good to see you back! And yep, Managing expectations. IF dealing with the avg nudnick were more like dealing with Amazon I'd be a happier camper. (In my experience, Amazon says 5-7 days, then WHOA, what's on the doorstep in 2 days. Makes me smile every damn time.)

I never left?! Just got quiet.

I'd left a comment or two (or 20) if I had anything to contribute.

Get like this sometimes. Still hanging in. Or out.

I just mostly stopped writing for a few months. Here and in my offline Journal too. Easy habit to break, I guess. Hard to start back up.

Nice to 'hear' from you T!

I wish you weren't a loner. I think you are a people person. Except for your work...that would drain anyone of words.

You've had some bad luck in relationships...especially that last one. I hope you will find The Right One soon.

Ha. Don't mind the work. And yeah, I'm somewhat of a contradiction. I can go either way.

Like my solitude a lot more than I used to though. Nothing wrong with being by yourself.

Some can. Others do...

I don't judge either way...

Damned right. That's my life in a nutshell.
