The “five things to be grateful about” challenge

Someone sent me the challenge. 
List five things I’m thankful/grateful about for 5 days.

I feel there is no way I can do this without lying. 
I’m 40 now, and I still wake up grateful that no one will hurt me today.
I’m grateful I have a roof over my head today. Possibly tomorrow if I don’t screw up.
I’m grateful no one is holding my neck under their knee screaming “no one loves you! No one will ever love you!”
I’m grateful I choose to spend time alone instead of being forced to.
I’m grateful I can serving myself soup without diluting it with water so it’s not too hot if it gets thrown in my lap.

There is an infinite number of things that make me feel isolated and alone. Something as simple and well-intentioned as the “five things I’m grateful about” challenge.
I’m grateful that feeling isolated no longer crushes me.
