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...

    Struggling

    5
    I feel so alone....Finally opened my eyes up to my husband's alchol abuse issue.  I have been struggling with this one so long.  We wold have the same ridiclous fighs, only to have the same ridiculous outcomes.  Then I noticed a pattern, he would be offended by my attitude, go drink a beer, come back and be a dick.  Nothing to pinpoint, nothing you could acutally narrow it down.  It was like...

    I'm the only one who thinks im worth it.

    I'm 28 years old and live a very isolated life emotionally. From a very young age circumstances forced me to shut down in order to survive. I was the kid with no friends who sat alone at lunch in elementary that turned into the kid in high school who never got invited anywhere. I've never actually had a friend before. I have a huge family but I always felt like no one really wanted me around and...

    Can't do this anymore

    So I'm in college and it's my first year, and I hate it. I hate that I'm always so alone due to my shitty surroundings.

I'm so extremely alone and scared, and my depression is kicking my ass right now.i just can't do this anymore. All this...

    I have never posted any sort of feeling online in my life. I always said it was nobody's business, but right now I'm sitting in a parking lot alone trying not to ball my eyes out. I have nobody in my life to talk to. My husband is an alcoholic who is the definition of selfish. My teenagers are teenagers who hate me. I have no friends. This is my last resort. I need a better life with support. I...

    I am so tired of feeling lonely!

    I have been meaning to post again. I have posted before. I feel I am becoming very depressed from feeling so lonely. Other than my beautiful female Black Labrador Retriever, I am really alone. I have a friend who is a widower and feels similar. Loneliness is nothing to not take seriously or to "snap out of."I feel overwhelmed often. My parents passed away and all my siblings live out of town. I...

    never good enough...

    1
    I am a second semester freshman in college and ever since I got back from my winter break about a month ago, I haven't been doing well at all. Last semester was amazing, I made a ton of new friends, I made good grades, I was happy here and content and felt on top of the world... I thought my depression was finally getting better, that I was finally overcoming it and becoming the person I wanted...

    I don't have friends.

    9
    I have a great family. And I'm in a wonderful relationship. But I have no friends. Not one. I have no idea how to go about making a new friend. I have tried online, but it puts a lot of strain on my relationship as it makes my boyfriend feel that he is not good enough for me. I feel unbalanced. And I'm jealous of people who have "squads". Where do people get friends?

    How do you battle the loneliness?

    How do you battle the loneliness? I feel like I was moving forward but the last couple weeks I've seem to be taking a few steps back. How do you meet new people?  All our friends were  really her friends so I lost them all to the split. I have no one. Saturday night and I was all set to go to a Valentine's dance/party with my brother. I wanted to meet new friends. My brother changed his mind so...
