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...

    Answer to Chronic Lonliness?

    I have no friends, my family doesn't even like me.  Now as I am getting older with no social interaction I am just becoming akward feeling around others. I have been divorced for 14 years. Each day I get up and go to work and come home and sit alone with my little dog. I keep wondering if this is it? If so, why am I just going thru the motions? I hardly ever had friends growing up.  When I got...

    It has dawned on me that I don't really have friends, especially with how often I burn bridges. Most of the time it gets really lonely and I have no one to talk to, no one to call over, no one to text "hey, let's get coffee" or something. And it makes me really sad and angry with myself for not trying hard, for not being that kind of person who deserves love, friendship or companionship. I would...

    On my own...

    Hi everyone,I  don't think I have anything unique to say.   I was divorced 3 1/2 years ago after being married for 14 years.   I can't say I've completely gotten over being on my own after that but I'm in a better place than I was back then.   About a year after being divorced I got myself into a not so great relationship, which was on again off again for a couple of years. I'm finally at a...

    I feel so lost

    I feel so lost on just about every aspect of my life. I'm currently in a four year relationship and it's been extremely rocky these past couple of months. We argue like any couple, but he likes to leave our house and ignore me for 3 days- a week. We argue about really dumb things that turn into blow out fights. Dating the same person I met my sophomore year has been really amazing to watch how...

    hey it's my first time posting here I'm not quite sure if I'm even doing this right. but lately I've been feeling overwhelmingly lonely. all my "friends" have left me. I don't even know why. I'm a really nice person like I'm trying my hardest to reach out to people and get close but I'm just shut out every time. and that's caused me to build up some barriers too, especially between me and the...

    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 very grateful to the people who have responded to my earlier posts and trust me when I say that I tried to reply to ALL of them but I just could not find it in my heart to finish my words or press send. It's not that I've been ignoring the kindness that have been given to me here. I really appreciate them, even the hugs. So I thought to myself why I could not respond. Last night I...

    Sometimes I feel like we are here on the planet to learn and I am supposed to learn loneliness. I was made fun of as a child all through school. Rarely making friends and people constantly choosing to end their friendships with me for various reasons. I literally have no friends. No one to hang out with. I entice people by paying for their meals just for company but never works long term. Being...
