The saddest thing is when you’re feeling down, you look around and realize that there is no shoulder for you to lean on.

    Why do you think of this so hard, do you think that God leaves us to do whatever we decide?Do you think that He wants anybody to be alone.Even the prisoners have a right for a last call.And they call to somebody.There is always somebody on the other side of the line.Just hold it longer.

    I’m not denouncing your faith in God or anyone elses.This quote 2 me refers ( imo) to someone that is a physical presence, not Ethereal.Im very strong in my faith an turn 2 prayer everyday 2 thank and to ask for strength, solice, guidance, direction, comfort. To me? These R all blessings I’ve been allowed to be given. I’m very grateful that my prayers are always heard and in some form will always be answered. I live alone. I’ve no relationship, I don’t date nor seek that. Tho I’m given comfort and solice thru prayer? I believe it would be so wonderful to have someone physically present to lean upon if I or they should ever need.

      I TRULY understand Anne Garcia..sigh,. I know my redeemer lives! My prayers are my source of strength and comfort!I know the Lord hears me. Without my faith I’d crumble and couldn’t go on. I took this quote as NOT having someone in the physical sense. I’m a female, over 50, disabled veteran, no children, never married and single. I was a foster parent to over 10 children and adopted 3. They are grown and moved on to forge relationships with their biological families. Calling them is waste of time, but I do it anyway. I try to keep active by volunteering, playing with my fur babies and church when my body pain lets me get out of bed! I just suffered ANOTHER devastating fall last month..smh. This fall left me with a broken bone in my back. My previous fall in May 2016 left me with a surgically reconstructed right foot and injuries to my back. I know my friends tried to help, but they eventually faded away. Even the church people got tired of coming around trying to help..lol. I’m still fighting the VA: I have to choose between suffering from anxiety and pain medication; get my bathroom expanded, which is where I suffered my fall; but the renovation is OVER their limit, roof fix and insulation..WHEW!! Yes, I know God hears me and is keeping me ALIVE (smile). But it would FEEL so good to be able to pick up the phone, call someone in the FLESH and have them listen and maybe even help!! Maybe one day.

    The saddest thing is not knowing how to resolve your emotional responses when you feel triggered. We have an in-built social engagement system which enables us to reach out and connect with others, however, when we try not to feel lonely, by default we shut this system down and keep ourselves feeling separate.
