Alone

There he stands surrounded by people.
There he stands talking; joking; laughing.
There he stands, feeling more alone than ever.

I love to read and write. Professionally, data science, technology, and sales ops are my thing. In my non-professional life, I aspire quite simply to be a good person, and encourage others to do the same. For those who care, I test as INFJ in the MBTI.

  1. That’s the thing about loneliness, you know? It doesn’t matter that on the outside someone looks happy. You can never tell.

    It’s what’s on the inside that matters; and what goes on in the inside, being so personal, is almost never shared with anyone else.

    I was just thinking about this the other day, while chatting with friends. The talk was all superficial, you know what I mean?

    All “you heard about…” or “you know about…”?

    I had suddenly wanted to get away from it all; to disappear. But I couldn’t. I felt horrible inside.

    And yet, there I was…

    laughing.
