Loneliness and self discoverment process

Hi guys, Im new on Mighty and I decided to write a worry wich is already consuming me. Im 21 and I feel like I have to be alone for some time since I broke up with a boyfriend. Furthermore, my trouble is that I dont know who am I, Im feeling like I forgot myself and now the anxiety is getting bigger because this sense of loneliness and emptyness. Being with myself is most of the times awful, I dont know how to stay with myself. Nevertheless, I really want to improve a lot of things on me as my eating habits, exercising more, studying harder and I still feeling that nothing will be enough even when I know that I need to love myself in order to stay calm. Anyway, I think that this feeling was not worked correctly when I was younger because I always used to put all my attention to my fiances forggeting myself. In my opinion, trying to understand me so that I will feel better with me and my enviorenment could help me stop thinking badly or could not?
I really want to know what do you think, It would help me a lot. Thanks so much🙏 #lonelyness #Sadness #Anxiety

Chronic illness is so lonely! #ChronicIllness #lonely #Depression #Pain #lonelyness #LateNightThoughts

First post, new to the app. Have heard about it before but never explored. However I found myself in a really REALLY lonely place tonight. You know the one that makes you start thinking "why am i here?", "would anyone even miss me?", "I'm just a burden". You get the point. Spining down that dark, dark tunnel that is incredibly hard to crawl out of.

Life has been extra tough and extra lonely lately and a fight with my partner just left me feeling even more damaged and alone. So I thought, why not try to reach out to others? Ppl who get it and probably feel the same at times. I'm in between meds, because I was in between insurance and now I need the new insurance to approve the new meds...and well, you know how that goes. So I'll likely be without the meds I need even longer only making all these feelings worse, because pain and inability to function leads to depression.

The thing my partner said tonight at some point that really got me in the feelz was "thats your doctors job" (about the insurance med approval) I was just blown away because after 3 years of watching this battle, he truly thinks it just the docs job! Like I just sit here while the doc and insurace company have a nice chat about my health and treatment. IF ONLY IT WERE THAT SIMPLE!

Just a nother slap in the face of how truly lonely this journey is. There's a lot more things that happened in the last couple weeks to get me here, obviously. But tonight, that gut punch comment lead me to this place. A place I guess I'm just hoping I can open up, others will take the time to read my insane rants and maybe tell me I'm not alone, even if it feels like it.

If you read this to this point, bless you friend. I'm a wild ride of mixed thoughts and appreciate others like me. Lets be friends. 🥰

My aim was not to write here ever.Maybe just in case something turned out wrong in my relationship and… here I am.
I’m writing this with the same broken heart that I was a year ago.
He’s gone. He said I’m childish and he doesn’t want me to bother him anymore.
And I’m here… waiting, hanging around with my broken soul. Who knows, maybe he will come back and apologizes about the swearing and bad treat he gave me the last time.
But no, that will hurt his pride and he never ever didn’t that for anyone.
He’s gone and I just have to wait for his decision
Hopefully he stops ignoring me because I feel like I deserve a better goodbye.
Or maybe just because Intold him not to ignore me because that hurts my feelings.
Let’s see what happens but this time I’m being stronger than before and I’m not texting or calling saying I’m sorry, because this time I didn’t do anything to make him mad.
I miss him and hurts. #BPD #Depression #Relationships #Sadness #lonelyness


My only source of love... #CPTSD #lonelyness #abandonment

Every night, after I have let my dog out one last time for the bathroom, I tuck her into bed, and I hold her, and kiss her, and I stroke her soft fur, and I thank her for being in my life. I thank her for loving me, when no one else does. I thank her for being there for me, when no one else is. And I tell her how grateful I am to have her be part of my life. If the power of our thoughts, and our words have such an enormous effect on mere water and how they form crystals, then how much more powerful are those words to a living breathing creature of thought? I hope one day, that I will find humans to say those precious words to.


Hiding Behind My Smile

#Fibromyalgia #FibroFog #Anxiety #lonelyness

Searching for a word while I'm talking or getting lost in my thoughts frustrates me into just not talking much.

Shopping at the local market brings on #Anxiety and panic especially when they have rearranged the store. Keeps me from doing much shopping.

Unable to remember simple or important things from the past or present makes me sad. Makes it hard to hold conversations with friends or family.

I know I'm not alone, unfortunately I can't help feeling that way. I pray, meditate and yet I still hide behind my smile everyday. Tom
