:(

no, i'm not sad. i'm happy.

but my friends are. to put it straight 2 of them have told me they are LONELY. i can relate, cause you see i was lonely too before. it was the thing that made me blog.( something good actually came out from my being sad. not bad.) i guess that's how i dealt with it. oh and yeah i went out a lot. did some crazy stuff too -- with good and bad results...

anyway back to the problem. i want them to be happy like me. but i don't know how. talking does not seem to help. so then what else?

ate patty, i have been very lonely and depressed way way before even when i was surrounded with so many friends. Then, i just realized that transcending loneliness starts with the self. it is finding those people, things, circumstances and even thoughts that will make you happy inside and out. Loneliness, just like genuine happiness, is a state of mind and the self. It was a very difficult process for me. Talking with friends was a big help but, it started out by changing to a more positive outlook and disposition. i counted my blessings and avoided things that i know will make me sad or depressed. so, i guess, mine was more of a conscious effort mainly by myself and supported by my friends and family. anyway, this may not work for your friends but, that was how i transcended loneliness. good day!

Several rounds of alcohol could help.

Anyway, to back to an old discussion my friend and I have a couple of times we meet. she would question another friend and myself if ever we were struck with loneliness. My answer has always been the same. I have friends and family who keep me company. As for feeling the need for companionship, I said that as long as you feel that there is nothing missing from your life, that you feel complete as a person physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, then I won't go searching for something I don't want. Of course, my ideas may change through time and circumstance but in the here and the now, I am happy.

...as one article i read goes, loneliness strikes where your soul lies... at certain times, one aspect of our life demands wholeness and if we havent been nurturing that part of our life for quite some time, then we feel bereft... i think loneliness can only totally vanish when we have achieved perfect spiritual wholeness, something only God as our sole Provider can give....
