Day 430

How social do I need to be?

I get down on myself, well, not really "DOWN," but it does concern me how little attention people pay to me. I've written about this before, but I have been given a lot, so I see no problem in being generous with others, and that includes taking them out to shows and meals, and giving them my time when they need favors. It's my way of respecting all that's been given me, to "pay it forward," as it were.....

But I wonder..... as The Who sang, "How many friends do I really got?"

So at the end of the day, I ask myself, "how much time did I spend with people? Am I too solitary?"

Because very few people call me, invite me out, treat me.... even people I've had over to my house, fed and given things to. I don't get it.

I'm enjoyable company, for the most part. I know a good number of silly jokes, I can hold my own in a conversation, and I'm a damned good cook! I have other talents, but I don't think people are really interested in me.

Maybe I'm just boring.... I don't bring much to the table.

So why am I so concerned?

    Ha ha Rav
    I feel like this sometimes, ask yourself do you only see people on your terms?
    Are you readily available if people call and want your time NOW, Do you enjoy Alone time more than together time ?
    Do you give off an Aura, others see but not you ?
    Do you really enjoy the Company of those so called Friends???
    You know the saying ' we are born alone, we die alone what goes inbetween is your choice ......
    TBH I think as we get older we are
    Less Tolerant....
