feeling lonely out of the blue

Sometimes I feel really lonely even if other people are around. I feel like there is nobody I can talk to that really understands me, or can connect with me without wanting more than I have to give. I find myself feeling as though I just don't fit in anywhere! Anyone else ever feel this way?

I always feel this way. And I've given up on people understanding me. Even in a crowd, I sometimes feel really alone. I think it's just part of my personality, and nothing I could really change. By chance are you a cancer?

Nope. I'm a Capricorn. Last night I got fed up, and went to a bar to sing karaoke by myself. It's amazing how different it is when you do that. When you are in a crowd it can seem like you are just sitting there watching everything. But when you go alone, and you sit there and watch everything, people will actually talk to you! It was really weird, but really fun.

Although I have always been a very outspoken and life of the party type of person, I feel that this has masked my true inner feelings. I am one to feel very empty inside as if something in my life has been missing. Yes, I have had a great deal going on in my life, therefore, I have learned to mask it and develop barriers as to not let the world truly see my inner feelings. You are not alone in this so many of our exteriors do not truly portray our inner feelings.

I'm actually not very good at hiding it anymore. I used to be, but then something happened, and I suddenly became aware of how deeply I feel this. I'm afraid it shows on my exterior now.

You know you are right, I am fighting against trying to show it although the feelings are becoming stronger and my boyfriend can attest that my entire persona has changed. Oh dear we have to find something to divert this.

I agree. Mylotting is actually helping a bit. I feel like I am really getting to know some of you.

I also often feel like you. I felt alone, among many people. They are like no regard, I am there. I only talk to, when they need it. The desire to invite them to speak there, but they are cool with their activities. This often happens to me.

That is exactly it. I think I have abandonment issues because I don't have any family besides my daughter. The rest is deceased. It makes me feel all alone in the world.

I'm sorry about what happened with you. I always feel alone, when my in-laws came home. My in-laws and my husband always never involve me in their conversation. They invited me to speak if they need me.

Yes, it's a really lonely feeling when you feel outcast in your own family. I'm sorry that happens to you.

I have felt like that a few times.I have days when I just do not want to talk to anyone and just want to be on my own and start questioning stuff in my life. Sometimes we think we do not fit in because we are different as in no two people are the same.

I have the most stimulating conversations with myself. I usually pretend I am actually talking to someone else, but I know that their responses are actually mine. I usually get myself laughing pretty hard.
