Answer me, dear Deepak

I love this guy so much I call him Deepak. But, alas, have yet to meet him. I've read many of his books and tried to follow of his teachings.

Now he (and others) have ventured into the realm of physical love/couplehood and its importance.

Oh, Deepak - not at a time when I've finally decided that era of "the relationship" has passed for me. I'm entering MY time, where I'm concentrating on MY needs, MY wants, MY future.

A relationship implies that you are basing your needs, wants, future on another's. I did that, several times, didn't work. So I have a new plan.

Although I say MY a lot, I'm not being totally selfish. I use the word as it applies to ME in the UNIVERSE. How can I help the universe - for as goes the Universe, so goes Mitzi.

I have walked the path of life, holding hands with a man. Sometimes I was pushed off that path. Sometimes I jumped. But I always came back to the path and continued to follow it alone. I have finally come to a place of peace with myself - alone. Not lonely - but alone.

I'm okay with that.
Can you be okay with that, too, Deepak?

Hi Mitzi,

I went it alone for 12 years and got along just fine, with some male companionship now and then. But, approaching 70, I had a yen again to be paired and have been since age 73, nearly four years.

The change has not been easy. We get very independent when alone, but we work at it and so far, so good.

Good luck to you!
