I do not know why, but I sometimes feel so low and lonely. I sometimes feel so empty. There are times that I am truly happy, but there are moments when I feel I need some spiritual growth. Do you also feel this way? That you'd just feel lonely inside?

NOW,I don't know why I'm so unhappy these days.I feel so longly when I walk around in the campus. There are two kind states in my life,one is busy with my research that makes me feel so energic when I got the success,the other state is feeling lone. I can't find a true firend arround me. There are so many words I want to tell but nobody to. Sometims I want to make my life more colorful, I want to try,change some idea before, learn some hobbis to inrech life,get up the courage,the life should be more colorful.

Hello. There are people who'd like to listen to you and be your friend, I am sure of that. And do not be too sad about things. Take it slowly. I sometimes feel sad but not too often though. There are just these moments when I feel down. Your thoughts about learning new things sound interesting. Indeed, why not learn a new language? Thanks for your response. Have a great day! Weng

i don't feel lonely or sad for no reason. but when there is a reason i too feel lonely and sad. all humans feel so. whenever you feel so you must engage in some kind of activity that you enjoy doing. do some opposition thinking, this means when you get the negative thoughts in mind think about positive things that have happened or that may happen. read inspirational books, that teach you to be optimistic and that that show a path to live a happy and purposeful life.

Hello... Your response made me think that maybe I have reasons to be sad. I just cannot decipher the reasons. And yeah, I should think positively, thank you. Have a great day! Weng

Hi weng..there are many times that I feel that way, especially that there is no-one who I know in my village as a true friend so cannot confide in anyone, sometimes I feel so unappreciated and hurt as there are no thanks for what I do for my family, it drives me to a small bout of depression and cry in despair, but always I do pull myself out of it and start seeing the beauty of the world, the miracles of all the birds and nature outside, seeing the funny side of things....so as low as I can get the sun always shines through and I am on a high again able to face the world and all it throws at me..hugs littleowl

Hi Littleowl, I'm sad to know that. Anyway, I want you to know that I may be miles apart, but you can count on me. Like you, I feel that way but not too often though. I guess I was just having problems lately and I do not know how to deal with those. My friend told me that when I feel sad it is important for me to know why I am feeling sad. However, again, I want to remind you that I can always listen should you need a friend to talk to. Thanks for dropping by. Have a great day! Weng

Weng! Hi! I also feel the same sometimes. However, we need to overcome our loneliness through indulging ourselves in some activities. Whenever you feel down and out, just try to make yourself busy in any task or your favourite hobby. It is said that an 'empty mind is a devil's workshop', therefore, we should try not to sit idle. You can keep yourself busy in some house hold activities, if you are at home, or just go for reading some magazine or book. Else, you can listen to some music and sing along with the songs. And if it is possible, mylot is one of the best source of making yourself busy and happy. When you participate in discussion on mylot, you keep your concentration on myllot and may forget your loneliness. All the best to you!

Hi! Yes there are times I feel lonely especially if I'm alone with lots of time doing nothing but thinking of things. It could be a sign of boredom or depression. But this emotion to me just pass by without me thinking about it too much. I don't like to self-pity so whenever I feel sad be myself, I try to think of happy things to change the mood.

Hello. Yes, that is what I do too. I try to keep myself busy. Or go out with my friends. When I am occupied I won't have time to dwell on things that can only make me feel sad. Thanks for your time. Have a great day! Weng
