I’m supposedly climbing the steps to success, then why do I feel as if I’m still falling down? Could it be that I’ve been climbing these steps all by myself and it is truly lonely near the top? Yes, you can buy the material objects along the way but nothing beats the human touch and talk. I’ve been so isolated with my work that any free time I have left is extremely lonely and painful. The pandemic hasn’t helped as work itself has been quarantined any chance of communications past the small talk. The most insane thing is I feel so alone at a crowded party where I can tell my story but no one appears to be listening to it and everyone has someone to go home with for me it’s just my mirror. Work has taken away my social life and my life as well.
