If The Cap Fits?

Somebody once said to me that if you are bored then you are boring. Well, if that’s the case then most of the time I’m boring. I find it virtually impossible to strike up a conversation with anyone, and I mean anyone, who shares my interests or will even pretend to. It’s a bit crap to be honest. I’ve ended up just writing stuff down and publishing it here on my blog so I can pretend in my stupid little head that I have friends or I am part of a group which is why the subjects I write about are of such a scattergun style. I’ve written

Kicking Television

about sport, TV, politics, music and probably more. It’s almost as if I’m searching for something and I’m screaming like a child “like me! like me! like me! let me join in!” From time to time my aching sense of alienation socially makes me consider that I must be terrible company for anyone.

What doesn’t help me is that although I think I’m sensitive, in truth that’s not the case. When the opportunity does arise to really relate to someone and be able to offer advice, help even, and support – I muck that up by jumping in feet first making mule headed comments and generally screwing up any kind of relationship I had with the person and making them both unhappy and distant leaving me realizing that I should retreat as I really do not know how to interact.

I have no interests, no reason to join in with anyone or anything. Besides, I’m never invited to anything more than a p*ss up and as I don’t drink anymore I’m hardly likely to want to go and face all of that temptation, and I feel that those asking know I won’t go so they feel safe in asking. So what’s the answer? Do I spend the rest of my life as a social wallflower or do I strike out at a tangent on my own? Is there any point in searching for a panacea for my life or do I just accept the way things are, living my life largely unfulfilled intellectually and spiritually (and I’m not talking religion here) Yes I know that makes me, an unqualified w*nker sound like a poseur of the highest order, but if the cap fits?

I need to look at the time I waste and fill it, fill it to capacity so that I can take leisure without feeling any guilt that I do not make any contribution to the home, which in fairness is something that Mrs D complains of frequently; and she’s right.
