Loneliness Kills by Missyajoke(f): 8:55pm On Nov 18
Good evening everyone am here to talk about loneliness. Do you know you can be in the midst of a crowd and still feel lonely. You can be married and feel lonely, you can have a job and still be lonely, you can be rich and still be lonely. See ehn most people psychological or mental sickness starts from loneliness and once you allow it to get to you it can leads to depression or suicidal thoughts. So please today if you're having any problem communicate with your pastor, friends, wife and if you can't do that communicate with God. Being betrayed by a friend, family, wife e.tc. doesn't mean you should isolate yourself from people, there are still good people out there. See ehn when I was in part one a girl died because of a bad results and when we asked her course mates what happened they said they didn't really know much about her, that she walked alone, sit alone and now she's dead. Assuming she voiced out people would have helped but she kept things to herself till she poisoned herself. My own is that you should create time for yourself, make new friends. Stop being on your own. Even if it just one friend that will keep you company. See ehn whenever am having a problems I have people I discuss with in my area that were just friends. So please don't isolate yourself from people.

Thanks, for that piece, I will work on it. I do think that kills productivity, lately I have been thinking what's productivity without happiness, nothing.

But making friends is not as easy as it was B4, people stay at their house to make friends online, people are more Money centric ever than B4. I am just tired. But friends easy to make for schl wella

The worse can be to have bad breath on top.
You will just be like... stuck at home.

Am not saying you should make friends with just anybody but you study people before making friends with someone, so you won't make friends with someone who will leak your secret out. If you want to make friends you must also be friendly.

How can I be more friendly, I am not that forward, I don't talk much, my sense of fashion is zero, I not afraid to approach anybody, I just don't do it, I don't know why. My social life is technically below average. I used to think everything will fall in place when money start flowing but recently I have realized that having money won't change much, if I don't try to change now

That's so true

Loneliness is part of life most especially if you want to experience inner peace of mind... It's just a sacrifice to pay.

Would rather be lonely than hanging out with those who can frustrate you anytime.

Hmmm......

Truly loneliness kills slowly.

The irony however is to be a committed prayer warrior, you must be a lonely person.

People who are too sociable hardly have time for personal prayers.

There should be a balance....

As for me I am an introvert, and I enjoy my private times a lot. My introvert nature always helps me a lot to seek God for hours.

At the same time I realize the need to be social and talk deep issues with friends and family.

To sum, there should be a balance.

I will like to make friends, but it's kinda difficult. I don't have a single friend in my area, the ones I know are not in line with my faith. They are like yahoo boys, I may even want to have time for them but they don't have time for me.

Do you at least enjoy the time you spend by yourself? Because all the friends in the world will not completely erase alone time. You need to gain a better understanding of who you are as a person. Why you think or thought and what you really need to change, if at all, about your person.

Back when we were younger, people had pen pals. These days, you have social media to the rescue. But will social media cure loneliness? NO. It only deals with the symptoms but not the core issue. You need to visit your mind to deal with the core reasons for your feeling lonely first. So that when you eventually do find friends, either in real life or via social media, you do not become dependent on them in any way for your wellbeing.

thanks. But I'm not the lonely type, I don't feel lonely, I have all the time to worship God, read a Bible or a book or chat and read online, infact there's no enough time, I could just sit and think about life, just that it's hard to make real physical friends, don't know why but it's ok.

Just for the record, loneliness does not only afflict those who believe in God.

You say it is hard to make physical friends, and I understand exactly what you mean. We all have different standards as far as friendships and our minds work differently so life and relationships are differently experienced by each mind out there.
