My Loneliness Story – By Jack:
I have always heard about people’s stories concerning loneliness and I never quite understood it until now. The way my life is heading is really not encouraging. I’m in my thirties and I have a good job, a car and a decent apartment. Yet, I feel this emptiness inside. A type of loneliness that brings nothing but sadness and I just don’t understand how it happened. At work, I don my mask and pretend that all is well. These days, the loneliness has got such a tight grip on me that I don’t look forward to going home anymore. Staying after work hours has now become more pleasant. It is not like I’m a total loner, I do have friends but they are not so close. They are the type to watch sports with and have a few laughs. Not the type to open up to.
I thought maybe it was due to my single status so I tried having a girlfriend, but it didn’t work out. Ever forgotten that you are in a relationship? That was my case. I missed date nights and birthdays. It was that bad. How can I be capable of love when I’m feeling so depressed? Even though it has not gotten too serious that I’ll ever consider hurting myself or resorting to drugs. I came here to pour my heart out and hope you guys can relieve the pain I’m feeling. Is it normal to be lonely?
