As an only child I have always enjoyed my own company, I don’t understand the sibling bond. I have no children, no partner.
Lots of people ask me would you like a sibling, I’ve always said, no. How do you want something you’ve never had, I can imagine it like I can imagine winning the lotto. It’s never going to happen.As I enter into my late 30’s and once again single, by choice no children, I do consider the bond my friends have with their siblings.
I ponder these thoughts as I sit alone once again in a bar, having a glass of wine, having dinner, reading and writing. Nothing wrong with this, it’s liberating, sometimes. Other times I would like to call that person and say hey, let’s meet. Knowing that this bond is unbreakable and that they would not want you to be alone.
I hope to work on this feeling, this wonderment, it’s not something I wish to bring with me into my future. I have always been comfortable with myself, so the older I get the more I wish I will have that person. Friends are good, but they are too far away, too busy, not family.
There are many people out there with no one, and I consider myself lucky with the friends and family I have. And it is this I need to take with me as I move into this new stage of my life.
To everyone, Love the fact that even though you maybe on your own, you have someone somewhere, and believe the fact that even though you may think they have forgotten you, they know you are there, and they love you.
We all need a constant in our lives, for me it’s going to be me! Cheers everyone! Have a wonderful week!
