The moment you fully realize you are alone; when you would do anything or go anywhere for a friend or family member but…have given up asking anyone to come support you at events. You have no significant other, your family is always too busy, your friends are much the same. Expecting people to treat you as you would them, with respect and as a priority is not worth the heartache when they do not. Or they act put out, like you owe them if they do come to support you. It is to the point where you don’t even ask for attendance or advertise your dealings. When strangers know you better than anyone you grew up with, it is an arduous and lonely affair.
I am alone, I know nothing else. I do what I do and will continue to support those I love. It seems though, very few will ever really know me. Such is life.
