I guess I'm a fine one to talk. I went from living as a daughter in my parents' home to living as a wife. So I've never really been single.

But sometimes I'm struck with how much more alone I feel when I'm with someone than I am alone. That's what I was thinking, really, when I posted.

My husband was sitting on the couch, sending out waves of disapproval. And that familiar flat feeling was in the pit of my stomach. And I was feeling so alienated and much worse than I feel when alone.

But it's probably not the same to be alone for a day or so at a time, so perhaps I shouldn't think of that as aloneness.

Disclaimer: Husband is a terrific guy. He just holds himself and others to very high standards, which is a wonderful thing in many many circumstances. And he's getting much much more tolerant about realizing that others might not be able to live up to those standards.
