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.

    June 6, 2016 I was assaulted by my best friend, boyfriend, husband, lover and my better half. He went to jail over a month and I never felt alone. I cant take him back into my life because of the assault and addiction. Im scared to go on with my life. I come home to no one.

    I am a new mother and live with my boyfriend and his parents and his sister. You would think that I have the opposite problem of being lonely but I am so isolated and tired of dealing with everyone's crazy drama I feel like I'm constantly in panic mode. My son will be 1 in September and the negative energy in this house is palpable. My boyfriend doesn't care about the fact that our son is being...

It makes me feel like I don't even like myself enough...if that makes any sense. My mom has been a huge help in all of this but she can't be available to me all the time because she has a life of her own. My significant...
