lonely


Empath

I could relate so so much to all of what you have written in your post, in fact I wrote a similar thread a while back on loneliness. Loneliness is something that I have known for much of my life due to drawing the completely wrong people into my life. I tend to have drawn friends and relationships who were extremely narcissistic or else just constantly wanted to dump on me and were nowhere to be found when I wanted a friend in turn. The marriage and children thing is also something i can relate to. Just last week I had a work colleague tell me that I should think about being out there meeting someone (I have just come out of an abusive relationship so its the furthest thing from my mind right now) and that if I don't have children 'who will care for me in old age'?? These ignorant attitudes are really annoying. As someone else posted here, I think society has forgotten to value people for who they actually are instead of whether they are married with children or what they may do for a living.

Ending up alone


Empath

This is something that has been on my mind a lot recently and something that I worry about. As an empath, I have often struggled in relationships and have had quite a few which were abusive which led to me protecting my heart a lot. Lately I have read so many things about people ending up alone and I'm really fearful of that even though I know that it couldn't be the worst thing in the world and it would be better to be alone than to be in a nad relationship. One of my work colleagues today told me that as a single person, I will never be resepcted-which makes no sense to me and that when I'm old without a family, I will have nobody to care.for me. It's all made me kinda depressed to be honest...

Feeling Lonely


Empath

Thank you so much for your kind words Sean. I have recently started meditation and find it very helpful. You are so right about the epidemic of loneliness that is existing now, I think people have become a lot more disconnected. Right now I'm trying to learn to be a better friend to myself and I'm hoping that after that, better friendships will follow

Feeling Lonely


Empath

Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum. Something I have been experiencing for quite a time now is loneliness and a longing for a deeper connection to someone. In friendships I have tended to attract narcissistic or needy people into my life, then when they have had enough of the friendship, they just discard it. I've learnt that I probably am guilty of giving too much and as a result people take advantage. I.have tried many different avenues to meet people but have often been left disappointed. I'm just finding life as an empath pretty lonely right now
