I am following my own advice. I was stating it because it was the only thing that's ever helped me.
Things aren't so black and white, you're not either brimming with faultless happiness or stuck in an eternal depression. Most people fluctuate between the two pretty regularly. I've been a shut-in for 6 years now, and there's always going to be periods when the loneliness catches up to me, hence, I find myself back in places like this board. Does that mean distraction doesn't help? No, because it helps most of the year, moments of weakness can't ever be avoided and will pop up from time to time. Especially in between figuring out what to do with yourself next. It's preferable to have periods of loneliness than to be consumed by loneliness 24/7.
>This board is called "So lonely".
Yeah? And? I have no friends, family or acquaintances, and loneliness isn't exempt from my life. I used to brood in intense loneliness, more so in the past than I do now, but what's the problem?
My apologies of course, if complaining is preferable to analyzing situations, by all means, I'll stop posting and just go back to lurking. I've probably become too comfortable with my shut-in lifestyle as of late to talk to anyone anymore anyway. Not-fitting-in is the topic of this thread after all, and this isn't a concept I'm foreign to.
