Lonely

RaymonaRaymona Posts: 3 Newbie
I’m feeling exceptionally lonely today. I’ve been feeling lonely for some time now - today, just feels more so. I never had many friends - one or two really but we were really close. Lately, they’ve all been moving on with their lives. We’re on different paths. I’m a single mother (always have been) to a teenager. My friend has a grown up son. Like me, she doesn’t have many friends, but it seems she can only have 1 close one at a time. We used to be close; did everything together. We went out to bars, restaurants, etc. Lately, I feel replaced. She has a new friend who is closer to her now. They have more in common than we did so it’s easy to see why they get on so well. I’ve never found it easy to make friends, but now as I get older I find it even more difficult. It’s my first time on here. I’m hoping this has helped some people and maybe someday, me too...

    Heya. Welcome to forum. This place has massively helped me and im sure many others! so i do hope it helps you. Everyones lovely. 

     Sorry youre feeling lonely. I think at some point everyone feels like this, espically when friends move on and replace us.- Doesnt make it any easier though:(  and I empathsis with you. Its really diffcult to make friends:(. maybe trying to go to more opportunities to find friends could help?
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    Welcome to the boards @Raymona :) 

    It's lovely to have you here.
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤
