Being Alone

Philippines

No one to talk to It's like you are inside a very dark room without hearing any sound in it. When you have problems, no one is there to comfort you. No one to share with when you are happy. It's like you are sleeping without any dreams at all. It feels like you are drowning into a very profound body of water and no one is there to rescue you. Crying is the only way to express emotions and after that, same thing - you are still alone. The only good thing about being alone is that you may have a very peaceful lifestyle but that's just it.

I'm sorry you feel that way. You might be feeling down because this is something new that you have t get used to. I had to be in the same situation sometime ago as well and I realize how it can seem hopeless. I wish you well and hope that you will soon be able to pick yourself up and start heading out the door once again. Hopefully soon you'll realize that being alone isn't so bad after all.

Sorry to hear you feel that way. If you feel like this all the time, you might need to seek help off a doctor. However we all go through times where we feel lonely. Even when you have people in your life you can still be lonely, I have two children and a partner and I feel alone alot of the times. Lonely life may be peaceful but it can lead to sickness if you feel that way for long periods of time. Please take care, there are people that care.

I feel that sometimes but we need peaceful lifestyle,yes its true. we must renounce conflict of every description. The heart, once freed from such strife,will then be free to become the instrument of being alone to mankind.

it's really hard to be alone coz you have no one to lean on to...there's no one whom you can share your loneliness with....try to find someone really trusted so you can share it to him/her....it's hard to face problems alone and so you should share it to someone else.

You can be surrounded by people and still be very much alone I am but I choose this by lack of trust. I don't turn to people to vent my feelings I cry when I'm alone. My emotions are dealt with on paper in posts or in poetry. I have never quite fit in anywhere I have always been a bit of a misfit but deep down I know I'm ok I treat people right I just keep a wall between them so they can't get close enough to hurt me. It's something I have always done I suppose you could say caused by childhood conditioning I learned the hard way not to let anyone in to keep from getting hurt. The one person I did let in and that took a long time gave me 20 years of friendship then used that friendship to crush me now I find I am even more distant then I ever was but as you said lonley yes peaceful existence yes. I just find other outlets besides getting close to anyone. I don't wanna be rescued I'm safe in my own little shell I'm just me no fronts nothing phony and I'm honest about it an example is someone tried to get too close about a year or so ago I told them up front I will only let you get so close and its not you its me. I do get lonely sometimes as well but like all things in life you either adapt and deal or you don't. Take care
