I confessposted August 14th, 2023 at 6:51 AM That I am very, very lonely Show 4 Comments 4 Comments Post a Comment As the great psychologist/philosopher Maslow taughtAug 14, 2023 at 11:12amHaving a sense of purpose and a sense of community (including friends) are a necessity of life. A couple of days ago I read a medical study that people who have close friends live significantly longer. Suggest lonely people get involved with community charity groups or legit spiritual faith pattern groups where you will find like-minded friends. ps: I use the word 'legit' when speaking about churches because there are a few good ones, but unfortunately too many of them are superstitious and power tripping frauds. But don't give up. There are good ones to be found when you activate you proper intuition. Hear yaAug 15, 2023 at 3:49pmI guess im lonely but im so sick of people n wud like to be mentally alone. Technically I'm definitely in the lonely catagory I confessAug 19, 2023 at 4:27am…that I’m relieved. I’m somewhat lonely too, but the lightness I feel after breaking free from an unhealthy attachment is worth it. When I feel lonely I acknowledge and accept it, and then I try to rethink my approach and enjoy it instead. I think of the good part of being without the stress that comes from relationships at times, and how great it is that I can just be myself without feeling like I’m constantly being judged. sighAug 21, 2023 at 10:50amIt's rare for me to meet people who mutually mentally resonate to extremes in that effortless, electric 'it' factor way. So rare that it just never happens these days, actually.And so I end up feeling more alone around others than when I'm by myself. For some reason though, I never felt lonely until I was around 25/26/27 years old, and then it really just started hitting and escalating to what's now pretty crippling, and definitely physically unhealthy.We are inherently social beings, we're just not designed to be lonely or alone all the time for years on end. And yet so many of us are like single cells forcefully extracted from the whole Body, living in the equivalent of a petri dish separated away from the totality of Wholeness and togetherness.
