Feeling alone

Recommended Posts

Sometimes even when you are surrounded by the people you will feel alone. You simply can't beat that feeling. All the past mistakes will create a heap on you and suffocate you. How do you deal such situations?

I think this sometimes happens when you have lots of relationships but if your not close with these people it can make you feel unfulfilled,so feeling the distance from these people can actually increase the isolation,and make you feel even more misunderstood than to start with.

@FolkArtist Thanks for the insight. Maybe I should be free and be nice to all the people around me whom I treasure the most. I am having unnecessary thinking and thought which wastes my time and makes me worried even if I clearly know that the past cannot be changed. I will try to lift up my spirits.

You may feel lonely in the midst of people of unlike minds. Somehow even while you are there with them your perspective of things is quite different from theirs and you are not really flowing with them. I think it's more rewarding and soul lifting to be among folks of similar way of looking at things.

Yeah. I agree with you @tony It is sometimes difficult to be around people who have different perspectives on things as each and every one of us is unique in this world.We should be around people who will make us feel comfortable and warm. :)

It is human nature to feel lonely at times. This is especially when things are not working. One is normally on the verge of despair. Personally, I have passed through this. Sometimes I question God. However, I remember that God is the giver and is ever watching. That's when I regain my hope and pray. In no time I am back to my feet. Most of the the time this cycle repeats itself.

When I feel alone and lonely, I go into the forest to smell the fresh air. Or I sit down on my notebook and continue working on my script, about people and animals who feel lonely and misunderstood because they believe that no one loves them. My screenplay "Killer" is about an abused riding horse (killer) learning to trust a human. And the girl (Julia, a student).

She comes from a divorced family, where the father hardly cares about her. And the mother, she believes, - but was not true - ; has left her daughter and leave her by her ex-husband because she was selfish. She also learns to trust. In her selves, in her parents (especially her mother), and Killer, the horse.

I sometimes have that kind of feeling, however, I overcome the feeling of loneliness by reading. When I feel alone, I start reading philosophical and religious texts. Reading on philosophy and religion will create positive vibes inside me.

@luri Thanks for the insight my friend. The next time when I have this kind of feeling I will try to read some philosophical and religious stuff which I think will be of great help. Also, reading or watching something related to this will also create a positive atmosphere and help to overcome this feeling of loneliness.

I am no expert on this, but I think you may be suffering from some form of anxiety or other. I know a lot of people will disagree with this statement, but I think that your problem isn't the past or whatever mistakes you've made, but rather a lack of alignment with who you really are because the real you knows that you are never 'alone' and any feeling of loneliness is a sign that you are not allowing the fullness of who you really are to shine through and this is usually because of where your thoughts are focused.

 

People usually come to believe that situations like yours are 'just the way things are' and that they have no power to change it but that is never true. You can easily change this and stop experiencing those kind of feelings just by making a conscious decision to focus on better-feeling thoughts. It may take a bit of practice, but it's worth it in the end rather than living a like full of depression and sadness.

Everyone can experience this feeling in their lifetime and it's not only limited to you, but what determines if it will affect you is how you go about facing it and dealing it with it, i would advise you to always know that God is always beside you whenever you need him.

I no longer feel as lonely as I used to. I went and got a girlfriend and eventually married her.

That's so good to hear. I have never been in a serious relationship before but I would love to. Still waiting for that special someone.

It might seem rather easy to live alone, but it is quite difficult since we will need someone at one point to help us and stand by our side.

Now I enjoy living alone without a partner which I am yet to find out and experience. I hope I will find it soon. :)

Living alone isn't hard for everyone. I live alone and enjoy it. I do live in an apartment building where I can interact frequently with other residents. Perhaps I would feel differently about it if I lived in a house by myself.

Reminds me of a quote from Spurgeon:

Thanks @William for this amazing quote. I googled about Charles Spurgeon and he seems to be one of the most important and influential preachers of that time and was also famously known as the "Prince of Preachers." :)

In my view sometimes just normal experience to find ourselves feeling lonely even when there are other persons around in same house with us. That may just be a good moment to worship or occupy ourselves with praises to God in our quiet corners. I do that when I feel lonely, to overcome that moment. If you practice this act, you wouldn't know when you get rejuvenated again.

@tony Quite an insight though. I have never thought of this and I can use my lonely time to put those moments spent usefully in worshipping God. It will make me feel refreshed and energetic. Thanks for the suggestion.

I try not to think about all the things that are killing me slowly. It is hard, but I manage to do it somehow. I try to be there, with the people that I am surrounded with, because that is the whole point and they are helping me to deal with that struggle. It's actually much harder when you are home, alone, and don't have anyone near you to keep you away from all the bad thoughts and make you feel better. In that case I just play guitar or watch something to distract me.

You pray. I find that if nobody else listens to me, whenever I can't listen to myself either, God is always there to do so. He is always the person that I call out whenever I'm in desperate need of help, and He always listens and never lets me down. I don't know what I will do without him. All these physical things and people in the world, they will all fade one day and you will find yourself abandoned at times. Weary not my friend, God will never leave your side and He will always be there for you, no matter what it is you've done :)
