You want cold truth? Come here and I'll give you a great big warm hug, maybe even a kiss if you wish, and I don't even care that you're a man hugs are good for the soul
You came to me
To be free, to be you.
So now you should see
What's right in front of you, what's right in front of me

Is there a way you just learn to relax and live IN the moment. Whatever you are doing, give it your full attention. When exercising, put yourself into that. When at work, take your work seriously and do a great job and be helpful to your coworkers. This statement below disturbs me:


"Ive had many jobs and i know already i wont be hanging on to this one for very long either. The problem is not me but others that are making my working place a place of hell to be! People are making my life impossible to live."

Sorry. That is a copout and an excuse. EVERY job is full of it's share of people you might not care for . Everyone one of us who works for a living experiences the SAME thing. If you are going to run from job to job thinking you are going to find some perfect job, you are sadly mistaken. And, you are going to wind up in the unemployment line, with no means to take care of yourself and no money to enjoy your life. Your JOB is what you do. Whoever else is there wasn't hired by you and it is not your place to decide if they should or shouldn't be there. It IS your place to work along side whomever you are supposed to work along side with. Enjoying your job isn't about someone ELSE it is about YOU and it is about your ATTITUDE. You can decide that you have a job, it pays the bills, it allows you to feed and clothe yourself, have a place to live, etc AND you can determine to go to work and make the best of it and give it your best. Anything less only hurts YOU. And, as for the coworkers, who cares? YOU are the one CHOOSING to let them get under your skin. It is a work relationship. You can decide to take that stuff to heart or just concentrate on what you need to do. And, believe me i have worked 25+ yrs so i know what i am talking about. Yes, i like some jobs better than others. But, it is really up to ME to just determine my job is what i do and i am going to do it well and not get involved in pissy politics and pissing contests and personalities at work. Your choice. Or, you can let that nonsense blowup in your face and push you away from a decent job.

Backbiting and office politics sucks because workplaces are where we spend a large portion of our waking lives. It's not that easy to shrug off when you can't escape. How we deal with those situations is important, but again, feeling perturbed is a normal reaction.

A lot of your advice seems to be filed under the 'grow up, stop whining' category, so lets follow through on that theme of admonishment. OP :

Life doesn't owe you anything ... others don't have to be nice to you... work isn't a place to make friends, silly... pull your socks up. etc.

Now he's feeling suitably shamed.

Like for example if you were a vegan lesbian who was interested destabilising the capitalist/patriarchal system you might join a group of like-minded individuals and make friends that way.



lol, I have met both lesbians and vegans who are very lonely, it's all in the angle one has about things
“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”


“I'm fine. Well, I'm not fine - I'm here."
"Is there something wrong with that?"
"Absolutely.”

Look, you have to decide that your life is what you make it. Staying home and drinking is only going to make you feel worse. Do you have any interests in anything? Do you like to cook, exercise, or do other activities? There are any number of civic clubs you could join. But, when you join you have to at first PRETEND to be excited about whatever it is you are joining. Fake it. Then just try to allow yourself to really get into it and you will find that you enjoy doing some of those activities.
Insanity is doing the same thing expecting a different result. Staying home and doing what you are doing now isn't working. Why not keep trying to move ahead? Yes, it is difficult. We all feel rejection. But, if you get out and ALLOW yourself to just relax, don't pressure people, enjoy the company while you have it whatever activity. And, realize MOST of the people you meet are just people you will interact with for a brief period, and that's ok. But, if you stick with it you might start feeling better.

Wowwwww. Wow. That's an unbelievable response to someone in need. Wow. Seriously?????!? SERIOUSLY?????!? Stunning. Why R there so many horrible people on this site???!? I thought this would be the one place free of this kinda shit, but really??!? I'm speechless. What an incredibly dangerous thing to say.

You do realise that member has been banned? And there's a reason why they get banned.

Some snippets of good advice put in an absolutely terrible way. Yes she was banned but it's indicative of how society views feeling lonely ; it's all your fault, you need to be more proactive, don't expect anything blah blah. A bit of compassion is likely to have helped this person take those first steps. And this person went on to post even more despondent things...

Well I'm not sure if she speaks for society, I try not to care what society thinks as much as I can.. so I can't compare her to that. But she used to go with the "tough love" approach which doesn't help some. Same goes with any other advice or compassion - these don't work for everyone. There are people who also get even more pissed when people show them compassion. It's just how different people view different situations and deal with them differently. Not sure if what Lady Gaga said mirrors what the society thinks.... I sure hope not because I think it would be a whole lot worse place to live in. Or maybe I'm am too naive / in denial to see this. At least I hope that there are still a considerable amount of compassionate people to keep things not too imbalanced out there.

I'd hope so, but when was the last time you saw that compassion from strangers or confided in anyone outside of family about how lonely you were? It's not the done thing. People are quick to apply the needy judgement, so instead we pretend everything's fine and act casual so as not to put them off.
