When you're alone

Ever feel alone ?
Well you're not alone.. we all feel that way at one time or another.

I think over the road drivers have more time alone then the office worker or most employees , they can drive hundreds of miles by themselves every day and they have a lot of time to ponder and if the last person they spoke to said something that bothered them that will fester for the hundreds of miles.
And because of that they can feel very alone and angry.

The fact is we all have days that we may feel as if we messed up, days that we wonder if we are on the right path and even if we are not physically alone in a truck for miles we can feel alone.
We have a tendency to let things fester inside rather than say things out loud, mostly because we can become defensive and rather then approach the situation calmly we may fly off the handle and then we begin our spiral and so begins the isolation.

The fact is we are all the same , we all have those days and rather you want to believe it or not you want to be liked and when you are not you can go the total opposite direction and say the heck with them, who needs them anyway and the gap begins and we all lose and most times it is over something ridiculously small. Sometimes it is just because the person caught you at the wrong time and you were already angry over something else, something that had nothing to do with them or the situation.

What to do ?
First step to recovery of any problem is to self reflect and to ask yourself what you could have done differently. Sometimes it may not even have been you, it may have been the other person's turn to overreact. In either case.. let it go.. talk it out and the sooner the better.
Do not allow it to fester.

You are not alone.
