Interesting thread! Like many of you, I have a top shelf job with responsibility and decision making. I view my job as my island in my current sea of fear. Sparing the details, my current wife will now become by second ex-wife. She will officially be leaving me after the Memorial Day Holiday. I do not want to be alone, but I will. Luckly, my cat, Molly, still loves me! I am hoping to connect with many of you and I want you to know I will do my best to help you all! God Bless!

Being alone is what I fear above almost all else. I spent so many years alone that I have great trouble facing it. It's made the relationship with my wife even more complicated than it already was (gay man, straight wife).

It's almost as if I'm not quite strong enough to make it on my own, but having another person there to lean on at times really helps.

I sometimes get lonely especially when I am down. I think that I am lonely because I don't want to tread on the other persons boundaries. I stand back and isolate myself. This makes the other person upset and think that I am a snob or that I don't care. What I realize is that I want people to respect my boundaries but I don't want to say what those boundaries are. I want them to be assumed. I know this is a flawed way of thinking but I know I am not alone in this thinking. I am striving to not be offended or upset when someone tells me their boundaries and I must not shy away from people who get close to my boundaries and make statements rather than demands when I need to make my boundaries clear.
