    Default What do you do when you're lonely?

    What activities do you engage in? Note, I mean loneliness differently than aloneness. Aloneness is a desirable thing, at least for a lot of us. Loneliness is different.

    So, what are your favorite activities when you feel this way?

    That somehow, all of this mess
    Is just my attempt to know the worth of my life

    I feel separate from everyone nearly all the time, so I don't really know if I am lonely or have grown to not care. But I love to go for long walks through nature to just think things through more thoroughly (cause civilization generally gives me anxiety, and for some reason walking through nature just brings clarity to my mind.) or play video games for hours as a means of distraction from my own emotions. Also, it seems that when I feel lonely, I become even more lonely when I am with people, so I avoid people much more avidly. (I've noticed this especially at parties).

    - Do something creative (write, play music)
    - Watch a movie (although I usually watch something that accentuates the mood, not diverts it)
    - Go hiking/walking/exploring
    - play an interesting game
    - Go to sleep

    Interestingly, I don't usually tend to reach out. I guess I just feel intrusive and needy in that state. On occasion I will.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Reach out, do something enriching.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Call a friend and schedule something fun. Like happy hour, or a movie.

    Very rarely do I feel lonely, though. Human interaction is very low on my list of needs.

    ok my first reply was rude, i just got back from the store and it was trafficky which always puts me in a bad mood. i don't like a lot of people around, which is why i fully support grocery delivery via a drone.

    but no i try not to tell people how lonely i am if it's going to show i lock myself inside until the feeling has past. if i can act like i'm not feeling lonely i'll find a friend or something. but usually the 2nd thing backfires and i end up feeling worse. but if there's a movie i want to see i'll find someone who likes movies and seee if they want to go.
