Hi, It’s Me
Alone, not Lonely: An Introdution
I am always alone. But, before you feel sorry for me please know that I am never lonely. You see, there is a difference between being lonely and being alone. Lonely is when you feel alone, but you wish you didn’t. Alone is when you are alone, like, literally not being with someone.
The only reason I am alone is because I like to be. It is not because I am bullied or anything like that. It’s just because I feel my happiest when I am alone. I like to take refuge in the forest, or by the lake whenever I can. They are only a mile from my house so I go there quite often. There is a feeling that nature gives me when I am in it, that people just don’t.
Plus, I am not always alone. I have friends that hang out with me. For example, I once found a baby duck alone in the lake. I fed it and took care of it and now it always visits me whenever I go to the lake. I also found a baby bird that had fallen out of its nest and broke its wing. I made a little nest for it on the ground so that the mama bird could come and feed it while its wing healed. It also visits me often. Finally, I found an injured bunny once. It looked like it had been attacked by a fox and barely escaped. I took it home and nurtured it back t0 health. Unfortunately, he will never be well enough to live in the wild again so I took him in as my personal pet. And those are my friends. I know you were probably expecting human friends but, I think those are overrated.
I named my bunny Arctic, the duckling Fluffy, and the bird High Hopes. I love them dearly and I think they feel the same for me.
So, now you know that, although I am alone, I am never lonely.
