What consumes the thoughts of people?
Leisure time by most, is spent how? Being single or not, times of isolation and loneliness at some point or another challenges us all. I think men are less likely to admit this for ourselves than women. Yet the grey cloud that can accompany, is usually the same. Different people manifest different feelings differently.
Commonly, people usually get with well-meaning friends or family. Usually this company does what it should do for the emotionally wounded. Happily and carefully attempt to redirect the thoughts and attention towards a decidedly cheerful heart and mind . Unfortunately some, do things that tend to be selfish and sometimes very reckless.
They thoughtlessly get into relationships. Perhaps we don’t think about it in those terms, perhaps we should. On a very crude level lets ponder;
I am lonely, I don’t want to be lonely. I see you. I like what I see. Hmmmm…Let me engage you and join your life to mine so I won’t be lonely anymore.
Not a lot of consideration in that attitude for that person or for the future that the two may ultimately make.
The things we richly prepare for, for good or for bad, is what we will get.
