Hi Lonelyheart,

I sometimes feel that I am alone in the world too, but I am conquering it I think. Have you tried seeing a counsellor? I have for the last few months & it has really really helped me. You could also try writing out how you are feeling.

i usually write poetry wich i enjoy very much and it helps but i lately haven't had much time. i've never been to a counselor, maybe i should try but i'm not sure it's going to work. i simply have a negative kind of mentality. thanks for your support

Heej LonelyHeart,

Welcome to HW! I think it is a really good thing that you have joined, since that is an indication that you have had enough of all the negative thinking.

I also used to feel alone on this world, while I had plenty of good friends. If I can ask, what is your age? Things like the lonely feeling etc. are actually quite common with teens, as it was with me.

But I am here to tell you that you can change your negative view of the world. It will just take some effort to get rid of those patterns.

I am sorry to be so short, but I have this presentation in about 2 hours that I still have to make, so I'll get back to you this evening ok?

Take care!

Hi lonelyheart,

I know what you mean--I just feel sad and depressed sometimes for no reason. If you can afford it, it would be helpful to see a counselor; they can help you combat negative thinking.

I like all kinds of comedy, anything that'll make me laugh--I've really needed that over the last few years. I watch a lot of the late night talk shows and love the US version of The Office. turn
Negativity is part of my nature too but when I had counseling, it did help a little (I had to eventually quit b/c I couldn't afford it). How long have you felt this lonely and negative? I've been like this since I was 13 and now I'm almost 20. If you don't try to fight the negative feelings, then they'll be harder to get rid of. Please keep posting on HealingWell if you feel like talking.

Don't feel alone in the whole, feeling alone thing. I can only speak from my own experience, but for me it doesn't matter if I'm surrounded by a crowd of people, or family members, 90% of the time I fight the feelings of loneliness. The idea that "they" just don't understand what it is that you are going through is the thing that gets to me. Though I coming to realize that most likely they are battling their own demons and we just aren't aware of their situation. I not sure if that bit of information really helps me yet, but I think it does.

Hi Lonelyheart,

I want to welcome you to the depression forum. I think we can help you too, since we all have these feelings. I also think counseling would be good for you. Keep posting and let us know how you are doing.

Hey Lonely, Let us help you turn that negativity in to positivity. cool

Turn those negative thoughts into positive statements.

Instead of focusing on doom, stay in the moment. Give yourself breathing space. Consider what matters to you. Establish a few manageable goals, then take small steps toward achieving them.

Gentle Hugs to warm you
