I have a good family life, my wife and my daughter. We have moderately good earning and i have some properties also. I maintain good relationship with everybody. Everyday my brothers and sister call me and i also call them. My all brothers and sister are well set in their life. Despite everything around us so good, at times i feel lonely and frustrated. There is no valid reason for this. But i feel it. Do you ever feel this? Why do we feel lonely at times?

I am single. I have a younger brother who stays with his family in Canada. I am also severely handicapped and on a wheelchair since 1992. I have not moved out of my house since then and am virtually a "prisoner" in it. I have very few friends and relatives though sufficient in numbers, do not care to call me or visit me. Just a couple of my cousins call me every fortnight and my brother calls me once in a couple of months and visits me once in 3 to 4 years. Despite this i never feel lonely though most of the time i am on my own except for 2 men who look after me, one during the day and one at night. Loneliness like all our other feelings is just a part of our mind and if we can gain control of it by using certain techniques like meditation etc then we will never feel lonely. I am practising certain techniques which have helped me to combat loneliness, frustration, despair and other feelings like anger, hate, envy etc and gain complete control over them.

Hi Borhan! It really happens to anybody, sometimes people who have everything in the world are the one who is craving for more. People who have a good life are always sad and not contented on what they had. I don't know what cause you this maybe you felt bored on your life. Why don't you go for a vacation with yourself only just to do soul searching or ask some friend what else good to do. I always feel lonely and empty but it is true i am lonely, i am physically away from my parents but my mom is always calling me.

I think you have a happy life,I do not know why you feel lonely, in fact , sometimes, I also have this feeling,so I think your problem is yourself,you have to find the answer,maybe you need someting in your life ,for example ,your ambition,just you do not realize that, I believe that you can find the answer finally.by the way ,I think ambition is very important to me,if I do not have it, I would feel no sense of life. good luck.

Borhan, You seem to have everything other than happiness. I would suggest that you get yourself enrolled in some club where you can have fun with your family and friends. This will take away your boredom and introduce you to new friends which could make your life more pleasant than ever. I too get bored and lonesome at times, but because of my work, I try to concentrate on it and avoid falling into it.

Well, basically it is part of the human nature to feel incomplete no matter how everything seems perfect. We can also be surrounded by other people, and feel lonely. It is perfectly normal, and I do feel like this sometimes. I personally like to face this feeling as a warning from my soul that I should probably be looking for more dreams to accomplish. Because I keep journals I have some idea of how my feelings work, and after reading what I last wrote I understand a little what my heart and soul are asking me to do. If you do not like the idea of writing diaries, I recommend meditation.

Hi, borhan. We get lonely because we need someone to talk to and cheer us up. We are looking for someone or something that will keep us company so that we won't feel bored. We all need some excitement in our lives so that we can feel motivated to live. I feel lonely at times because I want to go out or try something different for a change. It is normal to feel lonely. Maybe you should try and get with your family and discuss fun things that you all can do together, then maybe you won't feel so lonely..

I'm very busy in work, and when I get home, I just have time to cook, eat, take a short rest, then go to bed. I have a little time to feel lonely, and I let it pass through because I see that it can't last too long. At that time, I'll surf on th internet and of course, visit mylot/.

yes sometimes feel lonely eventhough we think we had everything but still feel lonely....but actually times we feel that way that time were just tired and bored....like were busy always from work to family but we have no time for ourself in giving a break....so when i feel this way i go out to see outside too in whats going on that I can see other things too, not just always in office and home all the time...

well, i'm a boy of 20, many people tell me that i'm emotional, i often get the feel of feeling Lonely.. My parents will get me, whatever i ask them, and i have more friends, but there are some days that i go unnoticed by my friends and i feel all lone, what can i do, i just go for movies.. this problem can be cured to wipe away the feel of lonely, just engage urself into a comedy movie , so u will be feeling full hearted by laughing and ur lonely feeling is evacuated ... u are fortunate that ur friends and brothers are calling u daily, but there are sometimes, i have some girls as friends, they don't even talk with me for many reasons, i feel vey lonely during that time...but my family is always there to engage me very busy, by outdoor sports like football and swimming...

As far as I'm concerned, I think I usually feel happy with myself. I usually stay at my home myself ,which I think I can enjoy the time and the space most. I like the way I spend at home,where i can free myself from any other things. I can have a lot of fun , and enjoy ly life to the fullest , too. I think you may have a try.Sometimes, it is really nice. Have a nice day.
