Watching TV last night I came across the program called Life Below Zero again which I’ve been watching since it began some years ago. Sue Aikens said something that grabbed my ear as I feel the same. She said:
“If there weren’t the explorers in the world, it would still be flat. There has always been those of us who call ourselves from the herd and march to a different tune. Being creative to me is a good thing, but the extreme isolation is just something that works for me, I know it doesn’t work for everyone but it works for me and is my happy place.”
So what do I mean? I have lived alone a significant portion of my life both by choice as is the case today, and in years past due to divorce which is also the case today if you follow me. I’ve made a very conscious decision to never remarry. I am not marriage material because I always feel so trapped when that ring is on my finger. This is my happy place.
