Isolated

Lately Im not sure what it is but I have been feeling very excluded and invisible from the rest of society. Everyday I feel exhausted from always trying to put on a façade that everything is great when in all reality my life seems as though it is spiraling out of control. This has gotten to the point to where I feel exhaustion at its peak. I've tried so hard to talk with my so called "friends" about my feeling of exclusion and isolation sadly it resulted in them not speaking to me and trying to avoid me at every possible moment they can. Its this moment now i understand the need of acceptance by others and how it makes such a world of difference to be accepted by ones peers. I just need someone who is willing to allow me to confide in them without harsh criticism and redundant advice i had the "pleasure" of recieving. I don't mean to sound over the top dramatic trying to get attention but, all i ask is for someone to be so kind as to allow me to talk to them

I'm willing to listen, I know how hard it is when there isn't someone there willing to listen and then when finally someone listens they give advice the first chance they get a few seconds of silence rather than truly understanding what has been said. Also don't try and keep up the front of being invulnerable, not only does it isolate you more because it keeps you from showing who you really are (how can a proper connection be formed that way?) but also it makes you want to spend more time alone because its safer that way because then no one can judge you for who you truly are. EP is an excellent place to start opening up, don't be afraid to post more experiences and find friends.

I know the feeling and sadly to well , if you want to chat / vent and anything else you can think of I'm up for it.

MrLyons, I have no problem if you want to chat every now and then. I have been where you are now so I won't give advice unless asked and I wont patronise. I am a 42 yr old male from Australia so maybe we can chat about where we live etc. and our families - maybe this will help. Email anytime to benwood2020@hotmail.com if you like I'll leave it up to you. All the best.
