Dealing with loneliness - August 7th 2016, 04:26 PM

I wasn't really sure where to put this so feel free to move it

I've just been feeling really lonely at the moment. It's probably because it's school holidays at the moment and I live like 2 hours away from my school so I can't see my friends at all. I just feel really isolated and like I've got no one to talk to. But then I think about going back and that doesn't seem particularly appealing either because I don't wanna be stuck with the same old people for another year even though I love them all dearly. I kinda feel like I need other people to talk to. But then I spent a few days with some new people and I haven't spoken to them since either. I would just say I'm stressed because we're moving house but I've done it so many times it shouldn't really stress me anymore. I don't know really. I just feel really isolated with no one to talk to.

Anyway, it was good to get this out - rant over

Feeling lonely is always rough, I know the feeling all too well. What I can recommend that helps me is I go into the chat room! Most of the time there is someone in there that you could talk to. Hopefully that will help make you feel a little less lonely. Maybe you could also go out somewhere and try and make some more friends? I know that's hard for most people, but maybe you could give it a try? Don't forget you're never alone. We're here for you. Message me if you need anything.

Hey Eve,

I'm sorry if this is me totally misreading your situation (because it sounds a bit like how I was feeling a while ago), but it sounds to me like you're more bored than lonely. You do seem to have people to talk to, your old friends and the new people you got to know, but you don't feel like talking to them. It may be that you are lonely in the sense that you don't feel like you have a friend who really gets you, but I think you might feel less lonely if you had things to do, like a new hobby or project.

Again, sorry if I'm totally misinterpreting this, but I hope it helped a bit!

Feel free to PM me if you ever need to talk!

Kyra

Thank you for your help! I really love making new friends because I've had to do it so often that I've actually come to like talking to random people, so that's probably something I could try. I've tried to organise meeting up with some friends from my previous school (I still live in the area) but one of them isn't allowed out with us until she's passed an exam which is really upsetting because once I've moved I won't be able to see her. So we're trying to find a solution. Anyway thank you again!

This could very well be the case, I've been doing nothing but schoolwork and packing really this holiday. Although I do enjoy time on my own. The time when it really hit me was when my sister had a friend over for the night and I just felt so alone. But I've started playing the trumpet again everyday and I'm actually really enjoying it, so I will continue and probably try and learn some new pieces on the piano too to give me something to do. Thank you for your help!

You know what, I had the same problem too. I did ask in lot of forums about this, and I came up with an amazing answer from a friend.
"The one good thing you can do when your lonely is spend time with the most beautiful and purest minds. Go spend time in some orphanage. Play and share your knowledge with the kids there. Or go spend some time in an old age home. See how even the old are finding new things to engage themselves. And if you don't find any of this, go play with a dog. You will never find yourself alone."
So true isn't it. Well I got a dog after that and yes I don't feel lonely anymore.
