When I feel lonely, I feel neglected by and devalued by society. In order to maintain an illusion of still belonging to that society, I devalue myself as well, and often behave in self-defeating or even self-harming ways. Afterwards, there is a feeling of shame, like it is right that I be separated from other people, which decreases my motivation to reach out. I was just wondering if lonliness leads anyone else astray into things like watching too much TV, ignoring phone messages, eating or sleeping too much, wasting the whole day on the internet, or just generally closing your heart down?
