I am so sad

China
October 3, 2012 10:27pm CST
One day ago, I posted a discussion to express my feeling and hope someone can response to me, however, nothing happened. Now, I just stay at my dorm room all day until it is time to have a meal because of lonliness. Sometimes, I don't want to go outside to eat because I think it does not matter because all my friends went back home several days before. Also, I do not like to open the websites because it will make me feel lonelier in the quiet room. :(

There are a lot of topics in mylot and new topics or discussion comes every minute. So don't be sad if your discussion wasn't replied to, I get that often too. However, whatever the cause of your sadness be, I think it's important to not rely on people for your happiness. Instead of moping in your dorm, go out, smell the fresh air and have some alone time if you can't find anyone to be with. Life is too short for sadness. You've been sad yesterday, don't ruin today too! Good luck! Have a great mylot experience ahead!!

Maybe I am too pessive. One day, I will have to leave my friends and family to work and live and life by myself. Now, it is an opportunity to learn to be independent. Indeed, I have a experience that is similar to this one. At that moment, I also stayed on campus without companions for a month. But I had to work and that helped me while the time. Maybe I should make myself busy so that I will not be lonely.

Winniemariposa I almost cry, I felt like a tear coming to my eye.... I`m so sad to read about you. Life can be so hard. You have to be very brave. Please, don´t feel like that. Maybe nobody saw your post. But that`s not your fault. Have you already made some friends at mylot? Have you already send a friendship request? That`s an easy way that your friends notice when you write. I would like to cheer you up Life is to standing up each day, and no giving up, no matter what. Blessings winniemariposa... dainy

Thank you for your encouragement. I believe that no one intents to hurt my heart. Indeed. I just signed in mylot two weeks ago. I like to read those dicussions and share my feelings with others. It really makes me excited no matter when they response to my comments. It shows that I am accepted by others. Anyway, the best wishes to all of you:)

Thanks you for adding me as a friend. This is an easier way to keep in touch with your mylot friends, because each time each one begins a new discussion it will appear in your mylot home, or email inbox. And indeed your friend´s activity will appear at your home page. From the discussions bar you also can reach discussions your friends began! Have a nice day Blessings winniemariposa... dainy

Don't be sad, be ... I know you cannot really 'hear' when you are having conversation here... Just turn some music on so you'll have some noise and keep busy here until meal time...

You are right. I should learn to smile no matter what happens. Inevitably, this will happen in the future. And what I can do is to be optimistic, otherwise, I will never be happy. Thank you for your suggestion, maybe I need to listen to music to help me relax, and phoning my family members and friends to talk to them may be also a great idea.

good day, for whatever reason you are feeling sad, well, i guess, you just need to be strong. and that is what i am also doing, because i do also feel sad. not only that, i also feel angry to the situation that happens to me. but what to do, i need to face this as a consequence to the decision that i have done. anyway, since you are already at this site, try to make use of this place to gain more friends though they are virtual, for sure, they will listen.

Thank you. Yes, you are exactly right. I must not be tough enough, so I need to learn to be independent and strong. One year before, I left my family to enroll in a completely strange city. I did not feel lonely because I knew I would make new friends became optimistic. Now, I meet a different situation, but I still need to be optmistic and tough to face this challenge. I believe I will win finally.

Hi, Oh, you are so sensitive. You become sad just because you didn't get any response to your discussion. Sometimes we have to wait for the response. But we get some responses later, I never experienced a discussion which has no response. We feel sad when we don't get response but don't be upset. You will have responses to your discussion later.

I also think I am over sensitive. In fact, there are so many new discussions in mylot everyday. Therefore, it will be impossible that every discussions will be responsed. To tell you the truth, I just feel lonely because my roommates went back home several days ago and no one can talk with me face to face. Many people tell me that I should learn to be independent because I will have to stay alone one day. And I really very agree with them.

Now, I think I am more optimistic than before. Yes, it is very helpful to chat with others when we feel lonely. I think I am in a high spirit when I try to response to the topics that I am interested. Maybe I should be more independent because I believe that none of my friends wants me to be sad:)

Oh maybe that was not when i was online. I respond to all discussion. You have to understand that we all have our lives and we cannot sit and respond all the time. There are so many discussions coming up each second and there is only you who have no responses but others also. So just not wait for the responses because if it does not come instantly, it will come later when those who are offline at that moment come online at their time. You can keep responding meanwhile. The discussions responses will not earn you anything, you have to keep writing and writing. and also responding back. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

Thank you. Yes, I do see your comments in many discussions. You are so active, and I believe that you must be optimistic and confident. People must feel excited when they receive your responses, so do I.:) It is inevitable that some discussions will be ignored because there are so many discussions posted in mylot each day. I just feel a liitle disappointed because no one responses to me. Anyhow, thank you for your response:)

Hope you are feeling less a lone now that you can see people are here to chat to you. I am stuck at home through no choice of my own and at one stage I started to feel a bit like you, then I thought of all the other things that I could be doing and all the things I never had made time for. There are always things that we can find to talk about on here to people, as well as find things on other sites to do and chat about.

Now, I really feel better because of these comfortable words. Indeed, it is quite excruciating to stay alone for a long time. I beleve you share the same feelins with me. I begin to make comments to discussions and express my own feelings, and it does make me feel better.

I totally understand how you feel. If it makes you feel any better, let me tell you am there in the similar or worse condition. I came to US after marriage. It is 4 years now (this october) and I do not have a single friend here. I came on an H4 visa. Only recently I got the work permit..due to family issues and other stuff..i was not able to join college..even till date. Now am preparing for mba entrance exams.. I had plenty of friends, a job and a better life before..when I was in my home country. Here, I seem to hate every day I wake up..no one understands how or what I feel. They think (read in-laws) that I am a good for nothing soul. Well..to each his own.. From a lively chatterbox, I have become a dull and silent girl..and it brings me to tears..when am alone..and I now rather wish I was a single person..at least I could live the way I wanted.. Try listening to music, reading books..or writing posts..it may make you feel better.

Don't be disappointed. Life will always give us surprises. Indeed, if you have chosen to live in US, you should be positive. Many people tell me that life is not easy. And I believe that you have deep feelings, and also want your life to be more well-rounded. You should face the fact that you should adjust to the totally strange place. Thank you for advice. I believe that those musics and books have made you feel better, and also, you need to be braver to face the difficulties. Good luck!! Just believe everything will be better.

Sorry you're friends left you and you feel alone now. Is there anyone else still left in the dorm rooms that stayed and didn't go home? Try making friends with some of them so you don't feel lonely. If you feel lonely, do you like to listen to music? Turn on some music do some cleaning or just listen to music while being on the internet that's what I do when I'm bored and lonely it spikes up my mood and everything.

All my roommates went back home to spend this holiday with their families, therefore, I can hardly have face-to-face talks. You are right. I should do something to distract my attention so that I will not feel lonely.

Yes, you are right. It is hard to cheer up when we feel sad, but we have to do something to help us be positive. I know that I should stay alone one day and the most important thing now is to overcome the fear of loneliness.

We have some hobbies in common. I like reading novels, almost all kinds of novels. Also, I want to write a novel by myself. However, I can hardly write some beautiful sentences and creative plots. Indeed, I have written some mini novels in computer, but never expose them to the public. Thank you for your advice. I believe you have written some beautiful stories.

Thank you for your encouragement. Sometimes I will feel sad easily, and I think I should learn to be tough. Indeed, when I receive so many responses, I am almost moved to tears. Yes, nothing will go smoothly forever without any difficulties. So I need to look things a little lighter.Anyway, thank you for your response.

You are right. Maybe I just need to go outside to get some fresh air. I have no spirit recently, and I really need to keep smiling to help me cheer up. Everyone will be sad, therefore, I need to see something a little lighter to help me keep in a high spirit.

I can't tell you to not be sad. Because that's the way you feel. Otherwise, I'm acting as though I know what you've been. But I ask you to try to be happy, even with smallest things. Thank God that you have them. I can suggest you one thing that will help you not to be sad. Focus on something you have to be thankful for. For example is a book. Do you have some? Oh, I'm craving to have a lot of book. I am trying hard not to eat in my classes to save money! That's it. Think that you are happy because because you have something they don't have. And maybe someone. I hope that helps.

Of course it is helpful. If i pay more attention to the things that I am.interested in, I will not be so sensitive when facing loneliness. I believe that when I focus on reading or listening to music, time will go faster because happy time is always short. Now, I have spent many days without others' company. And I find if I am positive enough, I can face the loneliness with smiling and have happy days.
