I don’t know what’s worse… physically being alone or the feeling of being alone…
Have you ever had the feeling loneliness even though you’re surrounded by a group of people? Do you ever get that heavy overwhelming feeling when you’re by yourself?
Something that I really struggle with is the fact that I can’t stand being alone. Physically and mentally. I could be hanging out with a group of friends and still feel like everyone is looking at me like I’m the new kid. I get that feeling like I’m on the outside when everyone else is on the same page. The feeling sits so deep that it ignites anxiety. It dawns on me even heavier when I’m physically alone… somewhere…anywhere by myself.
When I’m alone I start to think about E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. Thoughts vary from great to good to bad to worse. Sometimes the worst place to be is in your own head. One minute I could be reflecting on all the great things going on in my life and then the next second a switch flips in my brain and all of a sudden I’m stressing over whether or not people would be upset if I disappeared.
Each of us experience our own sense of loneliness. It’s a feeling hard to explain for people to understand. But I know for a fact that I wouldn’t want anyone to feel unloved or lonely. I do my best to make sure the people in my life know that they’re thought of whether they be friends, family, or strangers just passing through.
