Dear Hawkeye,

I have a friend, since junior high, Caroline, who comes from a Catholic family, one of eight kids. In high school she was a little jealous of all my alone time & I was more than a little jealous of her build-in friends.

Now that we’re adults, I still crave my alone time & go nuts if I don’t get it on pretty much a daily basis. Caroline is super close to all her siblings, although she lives in a different state than all of them. Now she gets plenty of alone time while I’m still jealous of her build-in friends. I’m sure she’s got a better deal. 😝
