    • Hi Eddiekahlyre,

      Well I am quite a shy person.. and have no transportation..  

      so for me I would have to make my trips virtual, which  

      I try to do. when I feel alone..  

      It does help what you said, though, as everything can be

      done online in chats on forums..  

      I try to talk to people, friends on the phone too.

      My cats are good for picking me up..

    • I had severe depression when I was in my late 20s and even though I was married, I still felt quite alone and wasn’t even able to work for about a month.  I ended up going to therapy and taking some medication.  It took a while to get out of it but eventually I did.

    • There’s a difference between feeling alone and feeling lonely. I have had a few moments, but I volunteer now and to share my knowledge with people who can benefit from it is the best feeling. Figure we come into the world alone and leave alone, it’s who you touch along the way that makes the trip worthwhile. I am alone, but hardly ever lonely.

    • Of course..since the question is have you ever felt alone at any point in your life.. and how you handle it; your answer about volunteering is a really nice answer.

      Sometimes when people feel alone, they don’t any negatives..just positives .. as they are already in a low spot..

    • The only times I truly felt alone was when my mom was sick. I felt the need to be strong for my sisters. My breakdown happened at the Drs office during my yearly exam. She was such a dear!!!

      Now if I was to find myself like that I know I could come here or i would go out and move my body.

    • I feel alone many times, but doing something - shopping alone or with my daughter, watching a movie, cleaning the house, get on this site, anything that keeps me busy helps.

    • Hello busygurl, I think at some point in everyone’s life they come to the bridge of lonliness. I too have been there and what I tend to do is pray, cry out to God and read scriptures from my bible, then I reflect on all the goodness that God has bestowed upon me and that seems to work it truly beats the crap out of those lonely feelings and then I don’t feel alone anymore its like when I put my mind on Jesus, I can feel His presence and then I’m not alone anymore. God is good!hearthappy

      Hi all such good responses..thanks for taking part in the question.   Sounds like everyone has different techniques for handling those lonely moments in life.  

      I don’t feel alone every moment of my life but its good to have some good resources for when I do..

      Thank you

    • I turn to food when I am feeling lonely too, but a nice walk works so much better!  Wish I could always choose the right method of dealing with things.  Pets are a wonderful cure for loneliness too...
