How lonely do you get?

I didn't want to give the patient iv sedation in the OR during a procedure so that I could talk to them. But they were too anxious so I had to.
Sounded really depressed too.

When loneliness has been a part of life since one was born one loses the ability to discern how lonely one really is.

@Luckylu it's first nature, when it's second nature for the rest.

As if the distance between me and another becomes an eternity and the star I'm seeing I'm afraid till I reach it it's going to be dead already.

I struggle so much with loneliness.

I've physically carried myself in the past in remote places, camp in dark forests and abandoned chapels, shepherd shelters and beacons at the edge of cliffs, and such poetic stuff.

And I'm sitting in a room with others and even I know they're traumatized from life just as much as I am, somehow, they make it to create a communal flow, discuss and laugh together.

It's such a struggle to me. I'm making it some days. Maybe half of the time. The other half I'm that far I can't seem to reach them no matter how much I run.

I read this Buddhist monk, he's always talking about a soft smile. I'm trying to do that. At least it brings me a little closer. I'm not managing every time but I keep on practicing 🌹

@elafina I wish we lived close by then we could hang out

30 years old still single. Everyone I'm hanging out with or around me might as well be the wind. I feel alone with everyone. Though my social battery runs out, that empty feeling in my chest is always there. I feel like the woman on snow White. On her dying breath as she died alone, says to the couple.

I spend most of my time pretty lonely. I don't have an easy time making connections with people thanks to the way I grew up. :)

More than I'd like to admit. But I feel there's something to it hopefully.

Probably more than I want to admit to myself.

@CrazyMusicLover what do we do about it. Most people suck
BLP11520 · 61-69, M
Very, like right now

Very sometimes

I'm used to it
I sometimes feel that I should just jump from 5th floor and end it all.

Why would you want to talk to them during the procedure

What was the procedure
assemblingaknob · 26-30, F
@pdockal ok. Go on.

Nothing more to add

I have lived on my own for over 10 years, sometimes I do get lonely. I am lucky to have a few awesome friends, that break that up for me.
