I know it feels bad when people just seem to up and disappear from one's life....being a good friend to people and doing your best to help others becomes like an addiction....and when they suddenly disappear...well...the withdrawal symptoms just feel awful....and we internalize the sudden aloneness wondering what we did wrong...and get caugbt up in the poor me...why me game...maybe there's a reason it happened...perhaps the teaching is that we don't need other people to validate who we are...anymore than they need us (me)to valid ate them....to draw back for a time and focus on self rather on others can be tuff for a lot of people. ..you need to start seeing you...focusing on the things you need to do for self...slow down and feel good about it...your purpose in life hasn't changed...just your human connections will be changing...the reason this dropping off of your group of friends is a cleansing of sorts to free up space for others that will he coming into your life at the appropriate times....so..take the time to learn about your abilities and gifts...perhaps this quiet time is what you really need...even if you don't think so at the moment...I sometimes feel lonely...but when i'm with other people I can't wait to get clear of them...lol...

Travis,

Sorry to hear what you're going through. I can relate so much to what you replied to Rene' about people wanting you around and then rejecting you. That happens to me a lot, too! On the one hand I do feel like that person that everyone wants to confide in (one of the empath traits), and on the other hand, having long-lasting, close relationships seems is such a challenge.

Maybe they see you as a solitary person? I feel like a solitary person all the time, but I try to push myself to show them (at least some of) the light that I have, so that it won't be all used up in the time I'm alone. I think for us it's hard to feel assertive, but I'm learning that the world requires assertiveness.

Hope things get better soon,

K
