LO 'Alleen' / 'Alone' (2)

Gisteren heb ik nog iets toegevoegd aan de LO. In het hoekje van de foto heb ik deze stempel gezet.
Was ik al van plan, maar ik was het vergeten.

* I added something to the LO last night. I put this stamp in the corner of the photo.
I had planned to do so, but I forgot.

The journaling reads:

"I spent New Years Eve 2006 by myself. I didn't have to, I chose to do so; I prefer to do it now when it's a choice, then being forced by circumstances to do so.
I had a really quiet evening: listened to the radio, played a game on my pc, bliss!
I had it bad at midnight, I wished myself a 'Happy New Year' out loud. Luckily I'm used to talking to myself.....
Just after midnight Hetty called to wish me a Happy New Year and it was really hard. I really wanted to cry.
Around me I hear the noise of fireworks and of people celebrating the new year. There is a lot more fireworks than a few years ago when I spent New Years here with Hetty, Aat, Jolinde and Kimtessa.
Right in front of my house they lit a million-bang thing. (I have no idea what that is in English!) That was really scary. My ears hurt and I was scared for my window.
After the last time I spent New Years here, I thought I could go to sleep early, but I wonder if that's possible. Well, especially if it makes sense.
To sum up tonight: I will not choose to celebrate this night alone any time soon.

I feel really alone right now and that makes me sad. I'm not far from crying.
But alone is NOT the same as being lonely!

(This is not one of my best photos, but it's made tonight.)

Wow, that was brave. Now I know why people say you should scrap all your memories both good and bad. It was touching and I am sure I am not the only one who can relate to this deep down. You are right, being alone is not the same as being lonely. Thank you for sharing this personal and very touching part of yourself. May you never be lonely. Luly

I agree with luly. What a great lesson for all of us to not just scrap the good times. :)
