Loneliness Support Group

Loneliness is an emotional state in which a person experiences a powerful feeling of emptiness and isolation. Loneliness is more than the feeling of wanting company or wanting to do something with another person. Loneliness is a feeling of being cut off, disconnected and alienated from other people. The lonely person may find it difficult or even impossible to have any form of meaningful human contact. Lonely people often experience a subjective sense of inner emptiness or hollowness, with feelings of separation or isolation from the world... Why Do People Get Lonely? People can experience loneliness for many reasons, and many life events are associated with it. The lack of friendship relations during childhood and adolescence, or the...

    I have been lonley all my life. I just want to end

    2
    I have been alone all my life. I have no friends. No family. Just my sick mother who will die one day. Then it' just me. I cannot have any kids. I'm pretty but men try to use me. I have a dead end job and I'm going back to school but it' becoming harder. I' so down. I just wish I could die sometimes.

    Strange place in life - 40s no kids or spouse

    5
    Generally upbeat and optimistic. However, I'm now in my 40s and find I'm in a strange situation. Pretty much all of my friends have "disappeared" due to (a) spouse, (b) kids and (c) busy job/life.  I don't have kids.  Even though I’ve certainly tried, I also have no spouse/relationship.  I’m looking for a guy, but to be honest I don’t think guys treat each other very well.  Guys do not...

    For me it’s no different this season than last year. I’ll do my best to give son a good holiday no huge feast as it’s only he and I. We have each other to give thanks for and that’s all that really matters overall. Maybe other son will invite us on Xmas tree outing and if not I’ll make do as I did last year. Or maybe no tree and save the money towards gifts instead which makes the most...

    Hello!

    I'm new here (at least to this group)  I was in widow/widower.  I'm still a widow.  Not by choice.  But that's life I guess.  I just feel so lonely at times.  I've been dating but I have not click with anyone.  Most men have problems I don't want to deal with.  Or I just pick the wrong men.  I don't know but I get down because of it.  I have family.  One sister and 3 brothers.  I help...

    friendships

    I have a friend who never messages me to see how I'm doing or even asks if I'm okay. I feel like it's always one sided, that I'm always initiating the conversation and rarely do I ever get a reply. I have talked to her about this and she claims that she's busy. It really makes me feel lonely as she knows about my depression. I don't want to lose her, but I also don't want to feel like I'm not...

    Disconnected.

    1
    These past few years I've been really trying to "find" myself. I was seperated from my peers up until middle school, in which I fabricated a sort of alter ego. During the past four years, I am seen as the person who can brighten any situation, tell the best of jokes, and use means of light self-deprecation in a sad attempt to help people. I feel as though nobody can relate to me; that nobody can...

    Different and alone

    0
    Hi I’ve titled this post different and alone because I’m in a family that follows a religion and I can no longer stand the religion my family follows and my family is fine and happy with the religion we are following. The religion we are following has brought me a lot of unhappiness and stress. I wish I could leave but I feel tied down to it. I sometimes wish I could be an athiest or an...

    No Trust

    Today was going ok until I was on my way home from my mom's.  I was picking up her laundry after dropping of my child at therapy.  My bf was going to pick up a few groceries, medicine from the the vet, and prescriptions, and some take out. We live in fairly  small city that  takes around an hour to do all of those things, and that's going a fairly normal pace.  It took him almost 2 hours. ...
