It’s Ok To Feel Alone

Being in a relationship isn’t a cure for loneliness. When you feel sad and alone in a relationship. It doesn’t seem right that people should be searching for tips for dealing with feelings of loneliness in a relationship. Why? Because being in a relationship is supposed be a “cure” for feeling alone! But, the longer you’re with someone the more aware you are that feeling alone in a relationship isn’t a surprise.

They are two types of loneliness in relationship 1) expected and healthy 2) unexpected and unhealthy.

Loneliness is a complex feeling, when someone says they feel ‘lonely’ in a relationship, it can mean variety of things. It might mean you feel unheard or unloved. It may be you’re feeling disconnected from your partner, like you aren’t close as you used to be. Or it could be you’re feeling confused about something: you’re trying to resolve a problem but feel unable to talk about what’s bothering you.

In reality, loneliness tends to express itself more indirectly. You might find yourself feeling more annoyed with your partner: starting arguments or interpreting things they do or say negatively.

When you’re feeling distant from your partner, it can be really difficult to address the problem. If you’re feeling let down or like they aren’t bale to support you, it can feel nerve wracking to ask for help to make things better.

But to finish this up, speak to your partner try to resolve something, let them know how you feel. Staying quiet and humble won’t help to situation but will make the relationship harder each day.50816706_753601625013870_1996121832188542976_n

  1. This is a really great post. I like how you addressed the healthy and unhealthy versions of loneliness within a relationship. Sometimes loneliness happens when you have been together for a long time. I just moved to a new place with my partner and I noticed that I have been feeling lonely, but not because of anything that is happening or not happening in our relationship. This loneliness is from adjusting to a new and unfamiliar place. Creating a routine is helping me to cope and feel a sense of confidence and independence even within the relationship.
