We are lonely sometimes. What do you do when you are lonely. How often do you get lonely? With me, when feeling lonely and alone, I go out and stroll at the mall, do some little shopping. and now, logging at mylot makes me feel happy and not bored. When feeling lonely. One of the best things we can do for ourselves is to arrange our lives to be sure it doesn't happen regularly. Everyone needs regular doses of attention everyday.

I usually get lonely when I think about the past and the things I should have done but I didn't and those things that I did but shouldn't. I usually get depressed when I tried to wonder about the "what-if" and "could-have-beens".. Then, the next thing I know, I wallow on self-pity. To get over my depression, I put on positive and inspirational quotes on my dresser or notebooks. :) I also listen to inspirational songs and do exercise. (I was once a varsity player in athletics so jogging releases stress and pressures). :) Also, I write poems or short stories. I jot down the words that "buggle" inside my mind. Blogging and writing in my journal are my "shock-absorbers." *hehe* I hope my post help. :D

I like to be lonely for 1 hour or so to meditate. REst of the time (except sleeping hours) I am not lonely. I have a wife, son and my office staff with whom I am engaged in work or talk. Even when I am doing internet, I am busy listening to music.

I have yet to figure out what to do when I am lonely, nothing seems to make me feel better. I used to chat on messagers alot, but, now I wokr second shift, mmost everybody i used to chat with works, first and is asleep when I return home form work. So even at this point I dont have internet friends, in the past they used to help me forget for a whilke how alone I was. Now i am unsure what to do.

well sitting here and responding to discussion or even starting my own, is quite different than one on one communcation. its helps a little bit but not much, its not the only reason im lonely either.

yup, there are times when i feel lonely. when i do, i just feel like crying my hearts out or go for a retail therapy. but since i'm broke, that's not an option at the moment:P i usually like to talk to an understand friend if i am feeling really down and lonely. getting my mind off things that are bothering me by logging onto mylot also helps, in a way. just try to keep myself busy so that i wouldn't feel that loneliness that surrounds me .

I do feel lonely sometimes. It comes on when my husband goes to his second job when he doesnt need to. He says its about money which maybe it is....But I still miss him.

Everybody feels lonely especially when your away from your family loneliness often strikes. When this happen I call my family back home. I also go online to chat and talk to my friends. Or if my budget permits I went malling and eat a hearty meal at restaurants or just watch movies at cinema.

I let myself to be lonely and alone once in awhile to think about what I'm doing with this so called life. Very most often, I have found myself regrets and frustrations on my past life. I let myself cry, after all God gives us the ability to cry to unload our emotions. God gives us the ability to laugh as well, when we are happy. There are reasons for every thing.

talking to a friend specially when you are lonely or depressed is really good to cheer you up and lighten your mood.

Not at this time, because i am with my family right now, but weeks ago i really feel lonely and depressed. There were too much pressure on me at work, i got lots of problems, i have no one to talk to, i have no companion, no friend nearby. I go out malling by myself, it feels like i am all alone. I don't have choice but keep on moving, so when night comes just take my computer and chat, watch dvds and sleep.

Loneliness comes from time to time, it not good if you always feel lonely. and when your down sometimes, we should really do something to uplift our feelings. :-)

Yep, there will come a time that one really feels lonely and bored. So we have to make alternatives to loose this negative aura on our day.
