Sometimes I Feel So Alone In The World...

Don't get me wrong.. I am grateful for the things I have in my life;

A job (working towards a better one)
A boyfriend/fiancé (whom I love)
A loving family (although they are far away)
My health. Etc.

It's just that sometimes I feel so alone..

I don't have any friends where I am now. At work I have friends, but I don't see them outside of work.

On the weekends, there is no-one that calls me, or drops in for a visit.... And vice-versa: I don't have anyone to call or visit..

I am not sure why?

I just get so down on myself when I remember this, or when I see 'friends' hanging out.. I get so jealous of those people..

I know I am a good person, but this feeling of 'isolation' really does my head in.

Thanks for listening..

I agree with you about getting jealous about hearing others getting together and you wonder why cant I have that. I am very blessed with a loving wife and son. I dont have a job I am disabled. but the one thing I do to get this lonliness out of me is get myself out of the house and do something constructive with my time. I can get involve with community projects and make a purpose with my life even if its for an hour or two a day or a week.
The lonliness lifts away when you actively find things to do ,but it doesnt escape you you have to learn to deal with it head on. Have a peaceful night
