    Loneliness will get you nowhere, just let it go, it’s all in the past now.

  2. Great read, thank you for writing..
    I actually found in my own personal experience that I felt the lonliest in my marriage… It’s once I discovered the relationship wasn’t “right for me”, that I could move forward and live more for me and reintegrate with family and friends.

    I thought of your recommendation to never turn down an invitation as I was planning my day today. I ventured out into the big scary world of the unknown and met a few other moms of young kids. If I didn’t have that voice in the back of my head saying “never turn down an invitation”, I would have spent the morning at home and wouldn’t have met new people. I am working on learning how to push past the scariness of meeting new people and entering new situations. I am hoping to broaden my world and work on the loneliness. Thank you for helping me in this process..

    I think the loneliness is crippling. The weekends are the worst, and I was amazed I survived the last 3 day weekend. I volunteer during the week, and attend Church, but as for friends? They are hard to come by in my latter years. Trust could be an issue, as I lost my his whole family when I divorced him. It is difficult to get close to people, and it has been 6 years.

    • It is difficult, especially forming deeper relationships. I believe the effort is worth it. And congrats on getting through the weekend! Holidays can be tough.

        Thank you for your reply. Love your enlightening posts, and only thru my faith I can face another day. I was married 23 years, and allowed his narc behavior to limit my world to family, so reconnecting is difficult, but possible. I am slowly becoming “Patty” again. Yay me! Lol! Just have to learn that the house cleaning will be there tomorrow, so get out and have FUN! Love & Prayers, Patty. 😎

        Still struggling after all this time. Depression rears it’s ugly head at times. Unfortunately, I am used to it. Trust issues also has a lot to do with acceptng friendships. Collateral damage. xo
