We Struggle On In Depths Of Pride, Tangled Up In Single Minds



There ya have it. As requested after last week's video...
here's the first video Q&A.
Your questions answered.
I've prominently featured my mom's bookshelf, books and table 
lamp. Hope they are to your liking.
And if you're feeling bored this evening, please feel free to hop on 
over to Ye Olde Other Blog. Given today's case of the blues, there's 
bound to be a depressy post that the whole family can surely enjoy.
(I was right - There is.)

And with that, I bid y'all adeiu.

Stay Alert, Stay Safe.

In my humble opinion, the fact that being alone is unfamiliar and uncomfortable is all the more reason why I'd recommend staying that way and getting good at it.

Sure, there are obvious comforts/perks to having a "significant other". But your life shouldn't be at any deficit whatsoever as a result of simple singledom. That makes you dependent on someone else to experience ongoing happiness, and that sounds rather like addiction.

Find what makes you happy, then take that happiness and let it mingle with someone else's happiness. But it should exist whether they're there on not; externalities can't always exist to make you fulfilled internally.

Besides, you're much too competent & delightful of an individual to be required as a package deal.

Anon - Nicely done!

Chino - First off, did you pick that name because of my love for Chino Moreno? :)

You're right. About all of it. The problem is that I'm very lonely... I'm not able to go out much, and I rarely see anyone other than my parents. I'm missing my whole life in Toronto. I think I'd be much happier there, single or not, just because I'd have a booked social calendar and freedom. Here, all I can do is dwell on the fact that I'm so friggin' alone. And this is why I blog so much. Much more than I used to.

Nicely done. The question about the 5 songs were mine! Ha! Can't you find someone to stay with on the weekends in TO? Less boringness.

Kris said...

Anonymust - I figured it was you :)

There are places I can stay, yes. Unfortunately I'm usually not able to. Things are way more complicated than they appear. I'm due for a Toronto visit, if only I can swing it. Ugh.

Well hopefully by the fall things will be settled for ya. Kudos on admitting that being single sucks. Some people enjoy it and some of us can be in denial just how lonely it is. But hey, I'd rather be alone than be in bad company.

And yeah. You're right about that. In that case, I'd rather be alone too.

Lyrically accurate.

Kris said...

Princess - Me too. Maybe I'll get a new one. Which msg, the one that makes me teary? The sweet one??

Anon - You could not have given me better lyrics. It's like I wrote em myself, for me. Great song too. He reminds me a bit of Elliot Smith.

You're in a sucky place. I used to be there. Living at home with the folks, no friends, no relationship (when I wanted one) and feeling lonely.

I suggest you watch a few episodes of Kung Fu. There's an excellent episode in season 1 and I believe it's the 2nd or third episode where a kid expresses his loneliness to Kwai Chang while they are outside in front of a river. Kwai asks the kid to shut his eyes and listen to the sounds being made. Then the kid opens his eyes and looks at everything around him. He sees insects, birds, other animals, including fish, and Kwai asks him, why do you think you're lonely?

This is a good example of what I'm talking about.

loved the video...
love the dark hair... i miss mine... i find that being dark does command a different kind of attention...

Being single can be a HUGE drain... it attacks your self worth and makes you question yourself over and over... i love how i can sit here and tell you that you are marvelous, and doubt myself... aren't we humans silly things.

but my dear, i fully believe that wanting to be in a relationship is not an addiction... if you were addicted to being in a relationship you would just be in any old one... but you know what you want and won't settle... that says something.

Sigh... maybe i should just bother to email you... as i seem to stalk your blog with long rants...
xo

Kris said...

Lord G - Thanks for the link. I get what you're saying :)
Maybe I should listen to my dog sighing and know I'm not alone.

Anon - I will definitely check that out.

Shev - First of all, I love your comments. Keep em comin'! They aren't rants.
And yeah.. you're right... I'm not addicted to relationships so much as I know what I want.. I definitely am not grabbing the first guy and making him my boyfriend. I won't settle.
