Worked at home this past day. Read an article that was on FB feed about aging LGBT people. When reading about people who were forced to separate from the urban environments in which they had been socially integrated, I realized that some of what I have been going through since I moved to my current location seems to be related to having separated from an urban environment. Both my university studies and my first full-time teaching job were in urban environments. I simply have not been able to replace the sense of connectedness that I felt in those environments since I moved here. That would help to explain also the sense of over-attachment I developed to some of my friends in spiritual organizations. I evidently was trying to draw more from those situations than they could provide, in part because of what I had left behind when I moved here. I try to be stoic about the sense of isolation I feel, and to put the time alone--or emotionally disengaged from my environment--to good use. I don't think that there are any truly effective quick fixes. I wish that some of my previous therapists could have been more effective in helping me to put this together.
