I hate people that think they have the worst life ever when they’ve never experienced what it’s like to be unlovable.
Let me tell you something you’re damn lucky you have someone to talk/cry to whether that be a friend, boyfriend/girlfriend or even a parent because all I’ve ever had are the friends in my head.
When about 200,000 older people in Britain had not had a conversation with a friend or relative in more than a month......”For far too many people, loneliness is the sad reality of modern life,” Mrs. May said in a statement. “I want to confront this challenge for our society and for all of us to take action to address the loneliness endured by the elderly, by carers, by those who have lost loved ones — people who have no one to talk to or share their thoughts and experiences with.” #britain#lonely#lonliness#aging#old#gettingold#sucks#seniors#nytimes
I've done a lot on Bad Mum magazine about loneliness as I was very lonely when I had Jake and moved away from my home town. It's horrible, isolating and depressing. I felt myself slipping away, going crazy and when Si got home I would chew his ears off, from speaking so much! I hate the thought of anyone being lonely and I've seen on the news more and more people are admitting to being so, and of all ages. This can affect anyone no matter what your lifestyle is! I first started the #Yourenotalone tag and had 2 groups of ladies chatting away but I feel more needs to be done. When I was at my lowest I reached out and asked for pen pals (love snail mail) and still have one now! But I'm not sure if people have time? Reading my letters were like having a friend in the room! If people have any thoughts, ideas or suggestions please let me know. This can be us Mum's, our Mums or Grans (and obviously men too!) No one should have no one to talk too. 💛
