been single for 7 years and my family live far away. Recently one of my best friends suddenly has no time for me anymore since she now has a boyfriend and makes it clear she is too busy. I feel sad often when I come home alone every day, it's like nothing is changing. I do my best to make new friends and I am a social outgoing person, but still I feel lonely. I guess I do have a lot of contact with people but it doesn't seem to stick / evolve into something deeper, I don't have a 'tribe'.
Most people around me are settled down with husband and kids, and have less and less time to meet up. I wish so much that I would have somebody to cook some decent food for and share a meal with and go for a nice long walk instead of being stuck behind this computer screen

No wonder every time I look at vhs videos from the 80s and 90s or earlier I get this feeling of happiness and true connection but never knew what the meaning was especially those high school videos and my issue is loneliness and yeah technology is cool and all I love my iPhone and I’m waiting to buy the ps5 but there’s always something missing

I watched a video with the same info he shared, the bottom line is, don’t use pills, screens & objects to make you happy majority of the time, spend the majority of your free time with friends & your partner to cure your loneliness

When you are in room full of people, your friends, and you still don’t feel connected and happy then that’s when you know you are lonely! We all need meaningful friends in our lives

rise in rate of innovation > rise in rate of evolution = more unhappy maladapted people.

the problem is our evolution isn't keeping abreast with the pace of innovation. most of the change around us is a product of innovation and evolution. children will naturally have a very tough time, because they're feeling useless from childhood.

Have to admit I have many material possessions and it has not made my life better. I'm lonely no friends no family no social life my counsellor told me I surround myself with material possessions so I don't feel lonely and I keep buying stuff to give myself a quick boost of happiness

Amazing how people tend to quote people here on the internet because they care mostly about their own vanity then afterwards, when into the real world they act completely different. Must be one of those personas, then again there are others choose to act truthfully with themselves as they do online. I guess people would do anything to conform in order to be appreciated and validated, so easy to memorize philosophy but not exactly connect with what the words really mean.

Let's see what replies I'm gonna get :)

when I was young.. I watched my mom's friends/coworkers become as close as family. Today , the jobs are so vile people can't risk extending themselves as friends anymore on the job. By the time you break barriers and get comfortable the jobs aren't steady and get rid of everyone because they don't want to pay benefits. The people that were friends back in the early 2000's are now separated because of segregation/politics brought on by current politicians. SMH..

Why are we unhappy, or depressed? Because we are never satisfied with what God has all ready blessed us with. We always want more!

Show genuine interest in people.
Listen to what someone has to say.
Speak less. Listen more. Smile often. In social media troll less. Have more deep authentic conversations with people more. I know easier said than done.
But hope it helps. Namaste. 💙 🙏

The poor were always lonely, worthless and without friends. There were proverbs written about the loneliness of poverty.
Proverbs 14:20
The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many friends.

Growing up with friends make you feel that they are there for you forever and we then assume that they’ll grow mentally with us but unfortunately you realize that you’re left alone .. you might communicate but don’t connect anymore

The content you create is the type of content/affirmation that every single one of us needs to hear on a daily basis in order to "train" our mind and keep it "in shape." Thank you. You are helping so many more people than you probably even realize, myself included.

I didn't see this video one year ago. Now, for sure, it has a completely different message. Probably we're discovering what's important: relationships and mutual help, love, respect and aid.
Thanks, Matt.

@Montserrat Sánchez yea but u know its hard I can also not make a family Off course I can adopt a child but most people consider under family a loving partner and kids I am not different. I would love to have one. Its proven that people who are single die earlier

@Funka Punka it's hard to read that, too. But I think there are too many ways to feel, express and receive love. Love in the things you do, in the people who is around you (not only women), because love is related with gratitude. I don't know you, but I'm sure you are a valuable person and you'll find someone who will love you in the way you deserve.

Right now I work at a factory. 13 hour days, no sunlight, just machines and lots of these sad people chasing a pension. On my days off, I MAKE it an obligation to go find a trail in the woods and just breathe in the fresh air of mud, grass, not a scent of gasoline or fast food grease to be found. No honking horns of pissed off antsy drivers. Just the brightest sunshine on my body and an amazing breeze. It's beautiful. People forget we may presently be in a high tech world, but our brains are primal. How do I know? For some dumb reason out of nowhere, through this beautiful day of euphoria of walking calmy, my brain just says "run". It was like a switch. I didn't stop until I got to the top of the hills and look at the amazing view. We are still animals guys. Stop giving a fuck what people think. Fuck status. Fuck kissing your bosses ass. Fuck if you get rejected when asking her for her number. Who cares. Just enjoy life. Cut the toxic people out. Stop worrying and get out there! Why is this so hard to do for you? Because you have been conditioned to dodge failures. Primal people didnt give a FUCK about being a failure. Because their lives depended on getting up again.

@C S I love it, I've been making it priority one to greet everyone I come across with a smile and nothing but good positive vibes and help as well when possible. Has been a game changer for myself, it works.
C S - 3 måneder siden
@The Black Sheep Diaries Good for you. I am doing the same. It is a process and can be hard determining who you really want in your life. Sadly alot of it is close friends and family. Just make yourself a priority and the vibe people give you. Positive people are hope and joy. Negative people are anxiety and depression.
