EL: Loneliness

She said:

“Before I met him, I seldom felt lonely in my life.

“After I met him, I felt how lonely I used to be before.

“Now he died, I feel so lonely in this big big world full of so many people.”

I patted her head comfort. I guess what she lost is not just a husband, but also another “myself”.

But at least she is lucky to meet another “myself”. So many people walk through their whole life and still can not meet the another “myself”. However, she has met, though her another “myself” has died..

“Half of what I say is meaningless; but I say it so that the other half may reach me." Read it somewhere.

I guess most of us have already said enough, but the other half still can not reach us. uh oh

Quite touched blog, Janmei,
And, if somebody feel that already said enough but the other half still can not reach her/him... well, I guess that it's mainly because of the content of "the said". lol. JMO, anyway. wave

Thanks mimi. well i guess she describes "loneliness" very well.

rolling on the floor laughing
I guess one of us have already said enough.....

laugh

Hi Janmei, no idea where you could have found it ...wink
Yes, Janmei,
Quite touched about loneliness. I have to admit.

Hehe, your conversation with Mick... seem that there is some secrets around that I don’t know. OK. Let me myself discover it as I also have a bit free time now. wink wave
Well, I come back, just to say that I give up to discover! laugh - Time for something more value here. BUT, Janmei, I read again the blog, and I think you are very right to put the word loneliness in "..." laugh

It more about her beautiful love to her husband and his love to her. BUT, anyway, I think I can feel the loneliness from her if just read up to... “Now he died, I feel so lonely in this big big world full of so many people.”... this kind of lonely, I think I can imagine about it. handshake wave
And, I read again one more time :-) - I dont know why she wrote “Half of what I say is meaningless" actually, it's full of meaning there. I mean, from "before... until... so many people"... anyway... I really have to go. Have a nice day! wave
"Half of what I say is meaningless; but I say it so that the other half may reach me."

this sentence is not what she said. i just read this sentence somewhere and feel it is beautiful and think that it grasps the gist i want to express in this blog.hug
confused lol!comfort 'morning' my friend Jan! hug
Jan, good lessons! I found that the less content a blog has the harder it makes me understand. JK!

I will keep that in mind. bouquet
hugh..kiss good evening!!laugh

xiàn zài ta lí kai wo le, wo jué dé cóng wèi you guò de gu dú.
Man shuong hou a, nei sid zo fan mei? (good evening, have you had dinner yet?) laugh must be lots of mistakes huh?

These are very profound words...thank you!
Actually this blog on loneliness reminds me a bit a that ex of mine

but the wording would different, just something like this:

“Before I met her, I never felt lonely before.

“After we broke up, I never felt lonely either and I cherish

every moment in this big big world full of so many people.”

Normally half of what I say is meaningless; but I say it so that

the other half may reach me.

Not this time .This time all I say is meaningfull and I say it so

that all could reach her

I guess most of us have already said enough, and luckily that

other half still can not reach us.



grin
OMG dandiest! tongue
Phew.. another philosopher! wow
ohh come on only joking ladies

you know I have to say something meaningless from time to time....

just to keep in shapetongue hug bouquet
Hi yan. No mistakes.

To be honest, I can only speak Cantonese but I can not type its pronunciation like what you type here. Just like I can speak my hometown dialect but I can not type its pronunciation. Your typing is correct, but I don’t know whether you can pronounce it correctly. laugh… I learnt Cantonese at 5, by watching many Cantonese cartoons in TVB.. ha ha.

Hi mick.. wow.. you are a poet!!wow

I hope I can learn you, “After we broke up, I never felt lonely either and I cherish every moment in this big big world full of so many people.” but actually…

Well, I guess I have already said enough recently. I talked a lot to other people, other people talked a lot to me too, but the one I care about does not talk to me anymore.

Hugh.. kiss hug It is always good to see you. Like your new blog. What is the secret?roll eyes
Ha, dear Jan! You saw my secret! I said enough for you, dearest friend! kiss
Hello Jan, for your explanation to me, lol
OK, I got it.

And I was thinking about those she wrote...
If I'm corrected, then, I think I had already read something similar to that from somewhere long time... on a book or story... I can't remember exactly, but as long as I think about it as much as I feel is quite familiar... I'm a bit curious to know the author... anyway, I confirm again that gave up to discover the secret lol

Goodnight! wave
When you were talking about "patting her head" I assumed you meant a pet dog had died.
Mr. How1e. comfort

i hope you won't be deleted by cs. because you seem to be as popular as CT or jim or Easywriter (who is easywriter?)
EasyWriter was an old Mr Camel disguise. Its a "play" on the film title Easy Rider (well at least I think it is).
I cant honestly say Im that bothered if CS delete me off here or not, I cant imagine its going to dramatically affect the quality of my life.
