Loneliness. It’s horrible, it can swallow you up and make you feel so alone. I was thinking these thoughts and thought just what it must feel like for a poor lonely animal, that never gets the attention or love it so badly cries out for, and if you’re an animal lover like I am, you’ll understand exactly just what I mean.
I would like to think of myself as a loving person and I enjoy making new friends, but what really breaks my heart is when the people in my life that I care about so much seem to ignore me. I think ignorance is one of the most hurtful things, and by knowing just how much it hurts to feel ignored, I always make a point of returning messages and emails as soon as I get them – after all I think it’s common courtesy, don’t you think?
What are your thoughts…I would love to hear from you! x
Hi there lovely’s!
If you know of anyone suffering from depression or you have depression yourself…you will most likely know all about just how empty and alone it feels when you’re having those moments of loneliness. It really is horrible, you can feel so very alone, and you might even think to yourself “what is wrong with me, why don’t I have many friends?” You see, like depression, loneliness can be a vicious cycle..starting from feeling lonely, to being depressed, feeling threatened by people, then isolating yourself from the world, having no social or emotional connections with people, and back to the horrid feeling of loneliness.
Knowing and realizing you have these thoughts is a big step in understanding your feelings, and then knowing that they are all only negative thoughts and words, you can change your way of thinking to then realising that you really are an amazing person, with so many great qualities, and your friends and family are all only a phone call, email or text away, – so get busy and start by saying hi! – trust me, you really will be amazed at how great you feel after making that call 🙂
The reason I have written about this is because I have suffered myself from these really silly and negative thoughts, and it really gets you nowhere…just in a place of sadness and loneliness. And the more you isolate yourself from the world, the worse the feeling gets, and plus how are are your friends meant to know you are thinking about them if you don’t let them know? or if even if you haven’t been thinking of them and you are just down and sad, they can’t help you if you don’t let them into your wold and know how you are feeling – after all, that’s what friends are for! 🙂
