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...
