Alone and Lonely

So here is the weird thing. I had a very lonely marriage, but I lived in a house with kids and a wife. We were more roommates than anything, and barely spoke (my wife and I, that is).


So last week I move out. I now live in a cabin outside the town of Fairbanks, Alaska. (I lived in Fairbanks before.) Now I am lonely, but I discovered it is easier for me to be lonely when I am alone, than to be lonely when I am living with someone who ignored me.

You took a hard step but the one that is going to pay off in the long run. Way to go!

Congrats to you for having the courage to move out. Maybe here are next steps for you now that you've taken such a huge one. Maybe there are ways of meeting people that value you. <br />

Your post really tugged at my heartstrings cause my mum ignores and resents my dad. I think that's what gave him a mild heart attack. He is ok but still living in the same situation. I feel so sorry for him, I want to help but can't.
