I love my family, but I need my time alone. My third son is now home due to unemployment due to the Pandemic. I just miss being home alone. It isn't the same if I just go somewhere alone. I love the solitude of my home.

So depressed...
Best as a blog retort...old post too. I don't find it too clever when those who live at the convenience of others start to make demands in relationships.

My bestie is going through this, turmoil in his relationship WFH during the pandemic. I don't think it's abated now as the last and final year subsides (almost spring 2022). It's put his wedding on-hold. I'm skeptical it will ever happen, but there are limits to friendship and I don't ask unless he mentions it. Which he does most every time we talk once per quarter or so.

My mom went through cabin fever when my dad retired decades ago. That she called me, 22 y.o. kid at the time, spoke volumes. I didn't have much perspective or counsel. Few 22 y.o. do then or now unf.

But the space everyone's too and there's another person in it far more often if in an office or not. My suggestion was remind all who's paying the bills and go from there. For reasons mysterious to me that's "difficult" to do, but facing the conflict hasn't been a thing in my life for years. Face it now, face it later, soonest done/soonest begun.

My buddy now just leaves the house periodically because he's the one needing alone-time. I suspect couples in situations like this do that. No wonder divorce is up. Those who have have a choice should probably find themselves (as they said in the 1970s) one way or another, whatever truly makes them happy. Many have during the 'Vid.
