I don’t have a family, I’m single, and my pets died few years ago. But I enjoy being alone. I feel lonely when I’m surrounded by ppl.

Hi Friend, I can completely understand where you are coming from with regards to that last statement. when you are so used to being on your own its a strange feeling to be around people, I’ve never really thought about putting a word to it, I guess if I had been asked I would say overwhelming but lonely is a good way to describe it. It’s difficult to relate to being sociable , to being in the moment and maybe even dare I say a little fake because people almost always put on a bit of an “I’m alright” act around others I think. You don’t have to do that on your own so I think you forget. Some find it all very odd that you can be ok in your own company but its really ok I think as long as “you” are aware that you can ask for help if needed, you feel secure enough to feel at peace. I wish you lots of luck for the future. Lisalovesfeathers. x

Being alone is not always a bad experience, and that is where a huge difference resides between loneliness and solitude. It sounds that the way you approach the times spent on your own has become something safe and peaceful for you. As an anxious person I often prefer alone times than socializing times as well. Interacting requires a lot of energy that I don’t always have the ability to spend. It’s exhausting. I cherish the people who make me feel safe as well as I am on my own. There is something very precious in having someone by our side who is okay with not talking if that is not necessary! Sometimes being with people creates more loneliness, paradoxically. What you describe makes completely sense, and I hope you keep finding spaces where you feel at peace and okay. Your well-being matters and is simply a priority. Sending love. <3

Thank you so much for sharing how you feel. It’s interesting, isn’t it how we can be lonely in a crowded room? While you say you enjoy being alone, do you ever have time where you are in a smaller group or just spend time with one or two other people? Know that you are always welcome here at Heart Support. We would value your company. It’s nice to meet you.
