An Introvert Asks: How to break a cycle of overpowering loneliness

204

This was actually a comment by a guy named Scott on the post about loneliness and introverts, and he’s had a lot of good responses, but I knew that many of you are subscribers and would not know about the new comment on the older post. It’s a great question and I know a lot of us have been in the same situation to greater or lesser extents and might have some more advice and comments for him. Here’s what Scott said:

I am 37 and always seemed to have a problem being around other people. I was the person always being picked on in elementary and middle school. Because of this, I tried to avoid as many people as possible. My solution was to concentrate on my studies and progress adademically. But socially, I failed. When I graduated high school, I lost all contact with the few friends I had. We all went in different directions. Shortly after graduation I attended trade school and earned an Associates Degree in Electronics. Soon after that, I started a full-time job and entered the “real world”. Back in that time, I was in my 20s, and one day I said to myself ” I wonder how my life was going to be like when I reach 30.”

Now at 37, my career is going fine, but socially I suffer. The loneliness I feel is overpowering. I have no friends and I feel like an outcast. I am an unhappy introvert who wants to change. I do not like being alone and doing things by myself anymore. Life is meant to be enjoyed with other people. I am currently subscribed to an online relationship website trying to find a companion or friend but so far, I have been unsuccessful. I hope I am not too late to change. Do you have any suggestions or comments. Thanks! Scott

    units can be used indoors or outdoors. Price should be a thing

    dog pens can cost under $50, or in extraordinary instances, as much as $500.
