Hi again Steve.
Guess what? You and I have some common issues. Shall I elaborate? Ok, I will. Our lives are empty, and we're not involved in social activities. This limits the quality of our lives. And why do I feel that I have the authority to say this? Well, because, as Larry just hinted at, we're social creatures, we weren't meant to be alone and isolated. If this were not so, then an ideal life would be in an prison cell, where we're fed 3 squares a day, and never have to worry about food or shelter either. You see, it's not just freedom that we value, it's social interaction and becoming involved in other people's lives in a meaningful way. By "meaningful", I'm suggesting that making a DIFFERENCE, in a POSITIVE way, in other people's lives, makes OUR lives more fulfilling.
I see myself every bit as isolated as you, go to work, come home, maybe go to the store, then come home, go to work, come home, maybe go to the store, then come home, go to work, come home, maybe go to the store, then come home, go to work, come home, maybe go to the store, then come home. But I do it for different reasons than you. Frankly, I am ashamed at my underachievements and overall inability to progress and make anything of myself. Alas, I have little motivation to "go out" and "meet people" when the inevitable question comes up, "So, what do you do for a living"? I then have to respond that I'm a short-order cook in a restaurant. And the commmon reply is, "Oh, that's nice", or some other seemingly patronizing toned response. You, Steve, on the other hand, HAVE attained gainful employment to my understanding. So what's holding YOU back from doing anything social? How about joining a gun club? (I was thinking of joining the Michigan Militia heh, just kidding). Are you good with your hands and hand-tools? How about helping out local non-profit groups that help poor families with home-repair projects? In the later example that I just gave, you have an enormous opportunity to connect with people. How about offering regular rides for chronicly ill people to the hospital for treatments and medications? There are all sorts of things you can do with your so-called empty life, but you have to identify what's holding you back before actually address it.
I would suggest that your T help you address what's holding you back from doing some of these things that I've suggested, assuming that they appeal to you at all.
