Being Lonely!

“I have all these feelings – these weird feelings, and I’ve had this burning desire to express them. But I can’t. I just can’t. And these feelings – they’re trapped and they’re like stuck in my heart.. And I just feel so lonely.”

Do you know why people hate to admit they are lonely? It’s because when you do, everyone thinks that something is wrong with you. They think “I have people in my life, why don’t you?” But the strange thing is, you can have people in your life and still be alone.

Because sometimes people do actually feel that way. Sometimes your life feels like it’s caving in on you. Sometimes people really do feel like they don’t want to exist, like they want to just curl up in a ball, and go into that place between life and death. Saying “I don’t want to exist” isn’t saying “I want to go die”. It’s saying “I wish that, for the time being, I could go somewhere and not have to feel”. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. And if you don’t know how it feels to feel this way, then you have no place to judge anyone who does.

I’m telling you, there’s nothing wrong with being lonely sometimes, it’s okay…you’ll be alright.

  1. Ok this time I’m sending you the link to the Yasmin Mogahed stuff!
    I spent pretty much my early life feeling the way you described, but I was utterly confused, cos I loved my family and I was grateful for my blessings. I just felt empty. So I figured it was cos I needed a husband, a partner to share my life with. So I married a practicing brother who is a blessing, and still felt stunned at this ache and longing. The space, the yearning, the loneliness- its cos we are meant to be with our Maker( inshallah)- this life is just a temporary separation. I can’t explain it right! Just read the article:)
