    Default Loneliness

    You know a good recipe to deal with it ?

    You know noone understands you, cause you talk shit and you know you dont want to be like the others, cause you think their systems are flawed.

    I need spiritual guidance ! I so far found out that music is the best healing device, but I am reaching the point of critical mass, when I need to vent.

    Opinions, thoughts, strategies, anything ? Porn wont help, I have seen it all :/

    A nice movie would be great !

    I seriously feel that way ALL the time. No, porn does not help. But finding those very, very, very few people who understand you *does help*.

    At the end of the day, you can only rely on yourself, though. Happiness is perception.

    "Peace within is the way to begin."

    Just know you aren't the only one. It gets better...especially when you learn not to try to:

    a) change people - doesn't work
    b) believe you are a total loser - you have to accept yourself
    c) find the answer out there - you won't find it

    If you find music brings you peace, go for it. If you're looking for love (another more meaningful phrase might be unconditional acceptance), prostitutes and porn might be appealing initially, but it's all illusory and fake like every other way to distract ourselves. When you think you are not at peace because of others, you are usually not at peace because of your own state of mind. Go there first. The rest will sort itself out on its own. Then you attract the kind of people you want instead of the kind of people you don't want.

    Did that make any sense at all? Probably not. So if you want me to clarify, let me know.

    I search for inspiration in icons, quotes, songs and stories.

    One of the quotes that are most important to me.

    "You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection." - Buddha

    Also, realizing feeling lonely and being lonely are two entirely seperate things, helps me a lot as well. I know I am not actually lonely, I have people around me. Sometimes however I do feel lonely. Not many people like me around after all. But I put myself over then consciously knowing that it doesn't matter, as long as I remain true to myself.

    And here's a very inspirational song!

    NTPs actually come from a different planet, thats why you feel so alone.

    I like to think that all non NTP's are from another planet and we're the only ones aware of that.

    Lonely moments or periods are less common for me than they used to be - probably because I actively changed my life for the better, a bit, in the past few months... but the loneliest I've ever felt was in a crowded room, because that simply drew more attention to the fact that (in my mind) there was no one who cared enough to notice how lonely I felt.

    Personally I am happier alone most of the time - but the feeling that there was absolutely no one there for me was still painful for certain reasons.

    Strategies? Get out of the house. Simply being outside helps me, as birds and wind and neighbors' puppies can sometimes be easier company than people. The isolation factor was a big one with me - I would feel lonely and then further isolate myself from possible company.

    Also: it's very true that you have to be able to be happy with just yourself, and it can be difficult to learn. It's hard to imagine that you can do it - but just imagine all those times you've chuckled to yourself because of something amusing you've noticed, the peace silence can bring and I'm rambling now.

    As it is. Hopefully there was some coherency in that.

    Go hiking, reconnect with nature.
    Take time to self-reflect.
    Talk to a good friend.

    Even better, do all three at once
