“To be alone is to be different, to be different is to be alone.” ~ Susan Gordon

Sometimes, you can be in a huge group of people, at lunch in a room full of friends and familiar faces, at a meeting these bouts of loneliness that you find who you are and how you react and deal with things on your own.  These times can be great revelations But sometimes, you can be swimming in a sea of people and you feel more alone and out of place than you do when you're the only one standing in the room.  You can have all the friends in the world surrounding you and all that matters is that you can't confide in them because of one reason or another.  Maybe its because you know something you shouldn't, or you're jealous of their successes or you have you own circle of drama unfolding in front of everyone's eyes.

These times when you're all alone and having to make difficult decisions can be killer because in any other situation, you'd run to your best friend and ask their opinion.  Now you might be faced with a situation where you can't run to your best friends because you don't want to hurt them or put them in the middle of anything and maybe you can't tell any of your other friends because your decision will effect them too and you don't want to bias their opinion and then of course the people you can go to aren't responsive or have their own things to take care of and giving you an unbiased opinion isn't on their todo list for the day and then of course, maybe you just don't know how to explain the situation to anyone.  All of these COMPLETELY hypothetical situations can be frustrating and leave you feeling completely alone and unsure of what to do.
