HollyDay Posted February 22, 2012 Share Posted February 22, 2012 isn't "so busy". I get it, I really do. We all have responsibilities and priorities. But, no one seems to have time to come to dinner or meet at the park, or just take the time to get to know us, the "new" (moved last July) family. Even when I walk the dog in our community or at the park, I see people walking while talking on their cell phones, even if someone is walking with them. At church, folks greet us, say hello, but don't really want to talk with us. In 6 months, we've only had 1 dinner invitation and exchange of phone numbers. Bible studies are "quick in and quick out" as folks rush in from work or carpool and rush out. I do confess I'm one of the "rushing out" ladies because dd's youth gets out before my class does. Just hearing what others are doing exhausts me so I am not feeling "left out by choice" but rather by circumstance. Their activities are not ones we can take part in either due to deadlines that occured prior to our move here, or age/stage, health, gender of my dc. The Christmas holidays were lonely, but I did expect that. Now, my father (out of state) has had a major health crisis and I am really feeling the lack of connection and support locally. Does anyone else feel we have become a disconnected society in this age of techno-connecting? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
