Embracing Loneliness

Like most people, I've had trouble making close friends since leaving high school. It puts us in a situation where we've had to put a lot of work and effort into simply just trying and understandably it gets tiring. With lack of response, of course, comes discouragement and we end up getting lonely. I have gone days really upset that things didn't work out and in turn makes it that much harder to get up a try again. The longer you put that contact off, the harder it becomes for us to try to get on our feet again.

For me, this blog serves as a mean of social contact, although it isn't as direct as I previously stated, it helps me get by until something comes along. Thats how it is with most people, I have come to learn. Everyone is a lot more lonely than they want to admit, whether it be through social media or something else. But here is my question to you.... Why are you ashamed to admit you are feeling alone? We are all there. We all understand, yet we fight off any signs of weakness to save us the embarrassment. I'm tired of pretending I'm okay all the time. I just want someone to be there with me and hopefully I can also be that person in return.

Yet even as I type this, I still feel alone yes, but I understand that I am not the only one. I will not allow this feeling to drown me. I will not allow myself to give up, and neither should you.
