Actually I’m writing this at 1:40 am. But it’s still the middle of the night, so the title counts.
Tonight I’m lonely.
It’s not that I’m sitting here longing for a husband, so much as sitting here longing for someone to validate me. Someone to tell me I’m not a failure, even though I can’t find a job. Someone to tell me I am smart. Someone to tell me I’m fun to be around. Someone to just remind me Jesus loves me.
That’s definitely one of the downsides to being single. Add to that being a night-owl who’s currently unemployed, and since I don’t have a spouse whom I could, selfishly, wake up and demand comfort from…
Yeah. Tonight I’m lonely.
