Feeling Weaker, Lonlier

For all those who are feeling so lonely that it hurts unexplainably, for you and for I...I pray
I turn to You as my source of strength when I feel so alone. I think of Christ and know that the loneliness He felt in Gethsemane and on the cross must have been far greater than I feel now. Still, I find my feelings difficult to bear.
Thank You for being so accessible and understanding. Help me to overcome my isolation and to reach out to others once again.
In Christ’s name, Amen.

I need help and I'm reaching out. I'm feeling at that point. The point where I beg, cry and give away all the pride and self respect I have just so I don't have to be alone anymore.
I don't know if I can do it. I know that 2 months isn't long in the spectrum of life but it feels like an eternity.
I am physically ill will sadness, lonliness and anxiety. I couln't hold anything down until dinner. I've taken 2 anxiety pills. I've called my sister. My parents are home. I found some comfort in that and then there were the newness reminders where mom slipped twice in conversation implying that I had a husband. I was so sad. It was my sister, her sister in law, my mom and myself with the kids of course. I was the only singlet. I always have done things backwards. When I was married and had kids, all my friends were single. Now I'm single and everyone I know is happily married.

gwen, i know the lonely feeling all to well. i also have anxiety. i am a loner and like it that way but there are times when i need people around. i used to sit in my apartment for days at a time. i would go to work and go home. but it does get better. get out when you can don't let them four walls trap you. when people invite you to do something go do it. even if it is to just go for a walk. PLEASE DON'T LET THE ANXIETY TAKE OVER YOUR LIFE, I DID.

Tender Lady, it takes as long as it takes to grieve a loss. Try to remember that what you lost wasn't all it was cracked up to be. If you had been happy, it wouldn't have come apart like an old sweater. Be good to yourself, hang on to today. take it one day at a time and stop going back to the "What if's?" or "If I had only's". Sometimes things have to happen five minutes at a time, but if you can get through the next five minutes, you will be stronger for the five minutes that come after. I chant the Serenity Prayer when I'm really up against it. You have friends, you are lovable and loved. Be gentle with yourself!

Also, rest, hug yourself, have tea, be gentle with yourself, remember that you have friends who will see you through this loss. It gets better, I promise.

I've been meaning to tell you that real grown ups take their own responsibility for their own half of a busted up marriage. He isn't that grown up yet. You don't have to believe a word he says. He's a teenager, trapped in a grown up body. If the sob tell you it's all your fault, that doesn't make it true. Neither would you turn into a banana if he called you one. He's lying to himself, and you, so he won't have to face his responsibility. Count your blessing, that he is gone. You life promises to improve 100%, when you are ready to let go of what he never measured up to. You're going to get through this, I promise, It gets better. Been there, Done that. Got the Tee shirt. Wore it out. used it as a rag, tossed it away. Hang in there. You have a life of your own. Enjoy having him gone for a while. Please take a few deep breaths and look for one good blessings to count. It will lift your spirits.

I hate that your hurting so...wish I could help...Are there support groups in your area? Maybe going to one where you could be with others going thru the same thing as you could help.

I wish there was something I could say or do for you that would take all that pain away! One day at a time - it will get easier - just don't isolate yourself - keep your family close!

Hey beautiful! I finally found my way over here. I know that you may be lonely right now, but you know that it is better than what was. (hugs)

Sweetie, I'm thinking of you. You hang in there. Remember that in your despair, there is always a light. I thought it was dark many times, you have to find yourself -- sometimes that's through doing something else. For me it was by helping with my son's school and then I got involved at my church, etc.

::super big tight hugs::

You need to hear this.. You have to feel it to go thru it. You have to mourn the loss of the marriage. The good news is, after a while ( they say a year) you are emotionally over it and the pains you are going thru now are less and less severe. I hate it for you Gwen, I really do. I've been thru it too, and have to say you will make it... just know the pain is temporary.

Please know that I would take that pain from you and carry it as my own if I possibly could, Gwen.

I wish that I could do something or say something that would take all the pain and loneliness away, but I am at a loss. This is your battle, but rely as you are doing on friends and family to comfort you. Check for some social clubs for singles--just having others to talk to may help.

Hugs to you, Gwen. I think it might take little while, but am sure that things will get better for you.
