My Loneliness Story – By Alastair B:
Ever since I can remember, I have been a single child to my parents and never felt lonely. It wasn’t that I had playmates all the time but during that period of my life, I guess my mentality towards loneliness was different. I can simply just say that when I was younger, being alone did not necessarily mean being lonely. But as the years went by and I grew older, being alone brought new meaning. Loneliness opens a darkness within one’s soul, like a black hole that refuses to close up. It gets even worse when I realized that I couldn’t find anyone to share my life and dreams with.
Finding love for me was very difficult, I have tried the traditional ways of meeting women at parks, parties and other places but yet, no success.
So I took to online dating, this only worsened my situation. I’ve been cheated and lied at. It was stupid to find love on the net, but deep inside, even though I was hurt, I still believe that I will find that someone special with whom I can share my life and dreams with. It is highly selfish of me to feel I’m alone in this, there over a lot of people worldwide that are feeling exactly the way I feel. Being lonely may be inevitable for many people but it doesn’t have to come with the feel of being miserable.
Loneliness brings nothing but sadness, I’m not getting any younger yet the quest for happiness seems like a fantasy, something I can only experience in my dreams. Maybe I’m one of the unlucky guys, things has never really worked for me. I’m employed and yet I have no friends, I don’t get invited to parties either. I believe maybe and somehow, someday I’ll meet a lady who understands me and is happy to share her life with me. But even that thought still seems like a fairy tale, I feel like I’m cursed with this sickening feeling of loneliness. I just wake up every day trying to find a meaning to my existence, why is happiness eluding me? So far I haven’t gone miserable to the extent of considering suicide or something crazy.
No matter how much we try to elude loneliness, it will always be there-taking its own shape and form. I am glad to have seen this website. It’s enlightening that I am not the only person in the world, now I know there are millions of lonely people in all corners of the globe hoping to find their own meaning of happiness. I hope to find mine and I hope all you guys will be fortunate to find your happiness too. For the meantime, let us count our blessings while we can.
