Can I Be Understood?

Ever feel like you are a lone soul? I often do. I try to connect with other people, but their lives seem wrapped around the here and now, the things that lie on the surface.. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who run much deeper and have no one to connect with on a more intellectual and emotional level, I just don't know how to find them.

I am a Christian, that is, I believe that the Jesus you all hear about is indeed the Son of God, and essentially is God, and that He sacrificed His pure life in place of ours so we can have an eternal relationship with the Creator, who is so Holy that He cannot be near sin, as it is the opposite of His very substance. Therefore, Jesus created the bridge so that we can still connect with the Creator, and those who choose to believe these truths are granted with peace that transcends this world.

I have that peace, but I still long for human companionship on a deeper level. I am a college graduate into my second grown-up job, and everywhere I am I see a soap opera. I don't dare trust most people I meet because they seem prone to relish in others' mistakes and hurts. I haven't seen a true friendship among people in so long. I haven't seen a loving marriage perhaps ever.

I'd like to hear about your experience with this, how you cope, if you've found a way past the longing for a like-minded being..

I am new to this site, and from what I can see, this is exactly the place to pose such a query.. to connect with those who think like me.

Thanks for your input!

I ALMOST ALWAYS do. <br />

I much hope there is at least a few people out there who run much deeper than the average. <br />
I have no one to connect with on a more intellectual and emotional level. <br />
I just already see nobody will ever understand me PROPERLY OR REALLY, TRULY, FULLY - AND FOR MY/OUR GOOD ONLY WILL WANT TO BE WITH ME.
