compatriots

I don’t live in this city, but this is interesting and perhaps the idea will spread:

Out culture emphasizes marriage and family as the best and perhaps only way to be happy….maybe some of us haven’t made
that happen, thru no fault of our own…and may feel shame as well as deep loneliness without the imagined emotional, as well as spiritual and physical intimacy our ideas of “our own family” conjure up. Maybe its too hard to tell even our close friends just how lonely we may be feeling, and these feelings may be wreaking havoc with us inside, pushing us to despair. Lets gather and debunk the stigma around being able to say “I’m lonely” and know we are heard and understood by others in similar situations. Maybe hearing the words “husband, wife, kids” has just gotten too deep under our skin and we needs compatriots, where we have a spell of freedom from those triggers….lets get together and talk and see where this group evolves….
