awww im sorry you feel this way x have you thought about joining any groups in your area to interact more with people and try and make friends
when I feel lonely and isolated I come on here but I know that isn't the same as real life interaction
could you spend more time with your family doing things you all enjoy?
lots of love Lu xxx

Sounds like a great idea. Hope that you manage to get started rockclimbing. It doesn't matter if you are introverted, there is room for everyone.

Hi there,

I'm sorry you're feeling this way. I felt extremely lonely at the end of 2018 - beginning of 2019. Sometimes when we're alone we tend to get lost in our own thoughts which can sometimes be quite depressing, especially when we're already feeling lonely. It's good that you're looking for groups to join as that will definitely get you out there and making friends in no time :) Also, on those days where you are a bit lonely, it's good to be productive and do things that are beneficial to ourselves as this helps us become more comfortable in our own company. One thing I find really theraputic is tidying, sorting out my endless wardrobe etc as this passes the time and helps me declutter, however I know this isn't for everyone. Keep trying to find activities to do and I'm sure you'll start to feel better soon x

Brilliant info elliepaige.
I don’t get out because of agoraphobia but I could really
do with following your suggestions.

Does anyone else know how it feels to have someone so close, yet so far away. Both physically and emotionally. Especially if you have had a rather intense past together?

Absolutely. My ex boyfriend and my ex best friend live very close to me and are only a short walk away, but they ended up having an inappropriate relationship behind my back which destroyed everything. Because we live so close to each other, I'm always scared of seeing them, but the reality is, I haven't seen them once since it all happened. It's hard knowing that one of them is literally right around the corner, and yet they still seem so far away. One thing I am looking forward to is getting my own place and hopefully moving away from my home town. Not too far, but just far enough to start anew. So you're definitely not alone in feeling this way xx
