Lonely!

 So often people assess me superficially, not really knowing who I am and how I may have been  successful in some areas of my life, but they only see  what they want to see. People ask, "How are you?" but don't usually care about the answer.  They couldn't care less.

I have to be tolerant and not  have any opinions of my own.  I am also supposed to discover myself and my potential plus fulfill it or people will say I am oppressed, even though I may be perfectly happy as I am. At the same time I must always  be on my guard .
No wonder I feel unsure of myself and often lonely. People say we all need counselors these days. Some therapy to help us through. But how can I spill the beans; tell all my secret insecurities and fears to a complete stranger, who has been trained to have no opinion,  acting like a mirror to all my faults and weaknesses. A face with nothing behind it. It's as though  you sit and talk to yourself,   and then go home. You still feel lonely.

I need someone who thinks and feels like me. Dreams the same kinds of dreams, understands my fears and loves me anyway. Someone who will love me enough to tell me the truth, even if I don't really like it. 

 Why has life become so complicated or have we become simple? Have we become obsessed with material possessions to the point that we leave behind the valuable things in life, like family and friends?

 Families used to support each other, now we have counseling and therapy from strangers. 

Families are disintegrating and friends come and go, as we seek the world and all it contains, with a greed that is never satiated. Maybe if we focus on 'real' things, important things,  gaining knowledge and nurturing our families and those around us then, most of our overwhelming problems will simply disappear.
