We are all lonely. I sometimes think that that is all that life is. We’re just fighting not to be alone.
I think, therefore I am. I think too much, therefore I am not. I am not, therefore I am nothing. I am nothing, therefore I am dead. And if I am dead, then why am I still so goddamn lonely?
Believe me, it took much more than watching Oliver do the salmon ladder to make me trust him. I’ve seen firsthand what this life can do to people. It’s a lonely path. Don’t make it any lonelier than it has to be.
I’m a freak, too. People have called me that because I am not neurotypical. And I used to be alone, like you. Sometimes that was easier. Because it is hard to be around people when you’re not like them. But now I have Dr. Glassman, and a roommate who is a girl, and a girlfriend who is only annoying some of the time. And I think it is better than being alone.[to Tara]
I know the appeal of being a loner. But for some people, it’s just an act. Inside, they crave love and attention. No matter how many people have to die.
Being alone and being lonely are two different things. Sometimes we’re lonely, and we don’t even know it.
