I Am Lonely

I have been in long term relationships since I was 14.I am 19 now, single, in college, so I don't really have time for relationships.Usually I am O.K with the fact of being single, but lately, it's been bugging me.I know I am young and have my whole life ahead of me, but sometimes I just want someone there.

I have been married for 30 years and i am feeling very lonely..... My husband has not a kind word or touch. No sex life...... I got married at 18 years old and i met him the day after i turned 16, so i have 32 years invested, no kids just cats that give me more love and attention then my husband. I get more looks from strangers, and all i really want is my husband to hold me and love me! I may not be married much longer and i am scared to be on my own. The only advise i have is to STAY STRONG!!!

If you have always had someone there, being single will feel strange. But I thoroughly recommend being single for a while - learn to stand on your own two feet and to love yourself. I was in long term relationships for most of my early adult life and one day realised how emotionally dependent I had become and that I needed the approval of a guy to feel good about myself. So I took the plunge into the single life to undo all of that. I felt like sh*t for a while but eventually I learned to love myself by myself and to be independent. You are right - you have the rest of your life ahead of you. There's no hurry. Enjoy your freedom and go with the flow!

The funny thing is that so many people who are in relationships would love to be single and the people who are single long to be in a relationship. Just be happy with you right now and enjoy the moment! You have no one to answer to (except for your parents if they are paying for you to be in school and if that is the case you better be studying and making good grades). <br />

Just sit back and enjoy this moment. You still have a lot of life to live and who better to love and truly understand....than oneself. The grass always appears greener on the other side but one can not truly know what he or she wants until they have taken the time to sit and stare at their own reflection in the lake and get to know oneself. <br />

Take this time to truly get to know yourself and what you deserve and want for your life and the rest will be the icing on the cake.
