Will It Ever End?

I feel like I have spent my whole life looking for something that I can't find.  I've never had a true sense of belonging, no matter where I was or who I was with.  It always feels like there is something missing.  It always feel like I'm a little bit on the outside of the group looking in.  I feel lonely a lot and I have been constantly looking for a place where I will belong.  I've wasted too much time looking for something that I now believe doesn't exist.  I am the ultimate restless soul.

I felt like that for the better part of my life untill one day someone said, "You are not alone, you are just independant", and somehow thay made sense to me. I am with the love of my life now and will be untill the day I die. But that feeling never goes away and still sneaks in of being alone. I went through a lot of apple's before I found just one with no worm's.

To overcome lonliness and to know who you are. Is to get to know the one who created you. God and to know who his son Jesus Christ is. When you know him. He knows all about you and even how many hairs you have on your head. People can't fulfill what you want in man. But God can fill you with what you need within. And in on the inside will come out on the outside. He will and can give you peace that surpasses understanding. When you feel like there is something out there that can resolve this problem of lonliness. There is and answer. Jesus came so that we can have and abundantely life. A life you can have peace and joy and fulfillment. There is a purpose why you were born. He says in the Holy Bible He has a plan for you and it is not done for evil but for the good. He is a God that cannot lie. I like what the book of Mark says in chapter eleven. Trust in your God.

I have that same feeling now, I can be sitting in a room with friends and feel alone and disconnected from everyone. I keep thinking, there is more to life. More than this, some bigger purpose. I have yet to find it though. I hope we all find what we are looking for and we have some connection somewhere.

just be a redneck and egnore those feelings

Sometimes i also feel the same way. But i comfort myself by saying god created me and he has a plan about me. Sometimes i can't sleep in night b'use of that and also I feel so lonely.

I think everyone does but we all think everyone else doesn't. it's very normal but I wouldn't say natural. I think our natural state, when we get beyond fear and attachment is total self acceptance and oneness with the world. the buddist path really helped me with these issues. i am not trying to recruit anyone but just passing on what really helped me www.shambhala.org. meditation and buddist teachings really address this and help put it in perspective. there is wisdom in a broken heart. it is the seed of compassion. don't throw the baby out with the bath water! all shall be well.

I have to agree with the Buddhist teachings. I am on this website because I was losing hope. I see that I am not alone and it comforts me, and thank you loribean66, going back to reading, meditating and changing my perception of the world for the better.

same here

you'll just have to keep finding even though you like to give up but don't.... i also feel the same way and up to now, i'm still looking for something in my life... but i don't give up because i know that one day, i will find it.... i hope you'll find what you are looking for

I feel you. I feel almost invisible when I go out in public, like no one is affected at all by my presence. It's an incredibly lonely feeling to have, especially when you don't feel like you belong anywhere...like life just keeps going on with or without you. I believe that it's possible to overcome this, I'm just not sure I know how yet. Hang in there, and good luck on finding yourself.

I FEEL THE SAME WAY. IM 65 YRS OLD AND STILL HAVE THAT SAME FEELING. I CANT FIGURE IT OUT EITHER. I FEEL LIKE THERES SOMETHING OUT THERE FOR ME TO MAKE MY LIFE COMPLETE. I WISH I CAN HURRY UP AND FIND IT,OR IT FINDS ME.
