I feel very lonely and unwanted

The last month has been different for me, I'm noticing that I'm starting to feel more alone than ever, I don't feel like anyone wants me around, no one calls, not even to say hello. My family is dysfunctional, I don't feel comfortable talking to them because they will think I just want attention, and won't take me seriously.

Being alone for me is not relaxing, I just feel lonely and upset more often than not.

Re: I feel very lonely and unwanted

Hi @lexsmith, it sounds like things have been tough for you lately. It sucks that lately you've been feeling unwanted, especially with people who are supposed to make you feel loved and cared for. I know this might sound a bit obvious but beside your family are there other people you feel comfortable talking to, like friends? Your feelings do deserve to be taken seriously and you deserve to be listened to and receive love and encouragement.


Loneliness is definitely something that can be very difficult to deal with; I was wondering if you ever thought about doing things so you would enjoy spending time alone? In the end, our best friends are ourselves (try saying that five times really fast!) and when we like ourselves and care for ourselves we know that in the end no matter what happens, we can pull through it. Stuff like doing self-compassion exercises can really make you feel supported and accepted.

Hello @lexsmith,

Sounds like you are going through a bit of a rough time.I like what @DirtWitch said, perhaps you can find something to do whilst alone to push away that feeling of loneliness. Off the top of my head, you could start a hobby like an instrument, or you can start a craft, like scrap booking, or perhaps start writing. Journalling or something like that. 


We would love to hear from you soon Smiley Happy
