Message Board

Hey, I started a message board over at yahoo.

I've been trying to think of ways for us to all talk to each other, and this is the best idea I could come up with. I hope you'll check it out.

Even Oprah had no friends at one time. . .

I know it's been a few days sense my last post. I've been having trouble with my computer.
I was looking at another blog (the one that I found that made me decide to start this one) any how one of the girls on there noticed the majority that was posting was females in there 20's.
I got to thinking, maybe it's not that we can't make friends, maybe it's that we can't decide where we fit in. I just got the new book from Oprah's personal trainer, The Best Life Diet. Oprah writes the foreword for the book. In it she writes:

Before I met Bob, I had spent years bouncing from one diet to another beginning from the time I was twenty-two. That was the year that I landed a big job in Baltimore and discovered that food-and especially corn dogs and six inch chocolate-chip cookies with
macadamia nuts from the mall food stalls-could provide a great deal of solace. I was naive, felt very alone, and was having trouble adjusting to my new job.
I had no friends and no furniture, not even curtains on the windows of my new apartment. . . .

Do you see that even Oprah Winfrey felt alone at one time. I have to believe this is a phase for all of us. It may be a longer phase for some, but that's okay. Use this time to get to know who you are. I don't believe that every person you talk to needs to become your friend. Friends are people you have stuff in common with, friends will support you, and encourage you. It is not a one way street. It is give and take.

When did you. . . .

When did you begin to feel alone? Was there a certain event that made you feel like you where alone, or was it gradually? I have had times in my life when I felt so completely alone. I remember one time, I was in school. I had a birthday party. I invited everyone in my class, about 20 kids. Two people showed up, and I think that's 'cause there parents made them. That was a great birthday.
I have had times in my life when I have had great friends, we just grow apart. Maybe we just don't spend enough time trying to stay connected with people. I encourage you all to post your story's too. I also encourage you to try and reconnect with an old friend. I actually just wrote to an old frined that I lost contact with. We'll see how it goes.

This is a place. . .

This is a place for all of us who are alone. There are so many of us. We don't have to be alone. Some of us just don't have a clue how to hold a conversation with people. Why is this? I don't know. Some of us have moved to new city's and feel lost. Others of us are just plain scared of relationships. Some of us are all of the above and then some.
This is a safe place, I welcome comments, I want people who visit this site to build friendships. So leave comments for one an other in the comment section. Any comments that are inappropriate will be deleted. Just a warning.
I will try to post a bit each day. Let it be known that I don't spell very well, and I've never been very good with grammer. Please feel free to email me directly and
