Yes,true God will not allow it if not His will.He gives us how we can make it,how to fix it and how we are humble to accept itand learn to be patient.

You are no different than anyone you meet in any given day. The only difference is you had the strength to say something out loud. To express it to others how your feeling. To ask for help to get through this time in your life. Honestly I do not have an answer for you. I am in such a place in my life that if you knew you would probably feel even worse.. Life is what you want to make of it.. Even though I have lost almost all that I have. I have to live with my daughter in order to have a place to sleep at night I still need to find away to laugh. Find away to know this is where I need to be. It isn't easy, I feel guilty, I feel I don't belong here. One thing I do know taking a life is wrong, even our own.. so we have to do with what is given to us each day. Take in the smiles we see, take in the moments or just stand back and watch those moments for others and remember when... and smile a smile. there is no secret answer, there isn't a miracle cure. There is a Journey we each travel, follow the path to see where it goes each and every day.. Amazing things happen right in front of us, we just need to take the time to see them... Yep still have that empty feeling, thing is I am still here to smile so it may warm the heart of someone else,

I know how you feel. I remember that I used to feel the same way 3 years ago when I started a new life. The only thing I can tell you that helped me it is to stay close to your family, they were the persons who helped to get through this tough time. I remember that I had to leave my college for a semester and stayed with my family enjoying the simple things of life. It really helped me. Now, when I feel bad, I try to think positive and try to think that everything can change for better.

I do have my ups and downs too, but I'm so grateful that I can every morning put it on God's shoulders so He carries my burden for me, loneliness, yes it happens to me sometime but it is human to feel like that sometime but not all the time. when you put God in your life you don't feel hollow anymore,because God fills it up. Lets not get to extreme in the hopeless case.

Don't know if it will help at all with your situation since I don't know just what it is to give great enough advise to you here. Yet, there are some who do get out of these feelings simply by knowing the fact that they are not the only one with them or they really are not alone at all like they may think they are. In fact, in my life I have come to realize that many if not most people do hide there truest feelings and emotions behind a mask of other things in life just to get by everyday and put up that brave face to the world. While inside they feel exactly just as you do here too. Maybe, the signs are just too tiny for you too see but I am willing to bet you do have at least one person in your life right now who is being this super brave person for you all the time and this is the person you need to go talk too tell them you know they are sad just like you are. This will start you both back to a sort of healing path together, be patient it will take time just as it took time to get this sad it will take time to get happier too again. If this won't work for you at all I really do think seeing a therapist just to talk it all out a day or two times a week wouldn't possibly make it worse then it already is so you have nothing to loose by doing so either.

It is always good I think to talk to someone you feel comfortable with. Sometimes you wish you could talk about the way you are feeling and other times just to talk about anything. I find a change sometimes that will bring me away from the way I feel helps. Getting busy, doing something you like or makes you relax or just going out. Forgetting about stuff for a while can change your perspective.

Oh I am in the same boat as you too. I really hate it when I start feeling really miserable bout something which is considered quite small or pointless but I just tend to overthink myself to the point I get pretty depressed and worried. I'm quite a pessimistic person too and I dislike myself for thinking that way but I'm just like that. I try to hope for a better day the next day and I tend to get over it unless I think about it again. So try to think about what excites you like maybe a new day the next day which might be better. I tend to think like that or hope for something like the weekends so that I can get away from a stressful school day. I know it's tough feeling that way but not everyone can be easily happy.

A deep introspection is needed. You have to identify what really makes you feel "so sad and feeling so hollow." For sure there are fundamental causes to the present life condition you are in right now. Dealing with the causes, with courage and determination, will reverse your current life state to a better one. You must learn to let go of the things that makes you really sad and unhappy. Stop looking for happiness from the outside (relative happiness) and learn to build happiness within (complete happiness). Overcoming difficulties in life is the path to complete happiness. Finally, be strong because a person can not hope to win in this chaotic world if that person is weak. Create your own destiny!
