So How Many of Us Are There?




Syndicated on BlogHer.com
I'm proudly syndicated at BlogHer today, with a post that's received a lot of reaction: On Feeling Lonely.

Obviously, there's plenty of us out here, feeling isolated, craving interaction.

But what's our first step?

I'd love to open up discussion there, and ask you to leave words of advice, for how to connect--and change our world.

Thank you, BlogHer, for your work on building community.

  2. :) As a true extrovert, I could NOT be a lonely SAHM... I created a social network before I had my kids and then just kept at it. I think that working full time really does create a situation like you described... you essentially have a identity crisis... and you are alone. No bueno. I've written several posts on how to make friends at my blog... www.onepartjoyonepartcircus.com loved that post. So honest, and I think will really help the mamas out there struggling in the same way!!

  3. Terrific! Congratulations! I'm heading over there to read it now. I know I'm going to relate to it. It's a subject I've dealt with for years out in the 'burbs away from my insular music world.

    1. So painful, so truthful--why do we think it's a reflection on us? I hope it helps. I remember those days--I'll never forget them. The fact that I made it through is nothing short of a miracle. xo
