No, maybe you are not.
Maybe there is just something so ugly about you that everyone around you is enjoying the company of others while you drown alone in a sea of black.
I was just told by my boss, who is going through a nasty divorce and who is not even a year separated, has a girlfriend. He volunteered this information to me as it really isn’t my direct business but he’s a sharer. This is a man 8 years older than me and just fresh from a divorce.
Apparently, I’m an Elephant Beast.
I left my job for the day in tears off to a weekend of loneliness. It’s been 15 years almost to the day since my divorce and I haven’t even had so much as a glance from anyone of the opposite sex. Just random hook ups which is not the same. Even when I lost 70 lbs….I was nothing to anyone.
So why the title?
Well, it’s simple. That phrase is something I have never, nor will ever hear anyone tell me in my entire life.
Because I’m not as the title suggest. I’m just….The Nothing.
