Loneliness is one of the worst feelings in the world. It brings hopelessness, misery, depression, and lack of motivation.
Lately, this sense of being lost without anyone has been difficult. From everything that I have read, this is typical of Aspergers. Just because I know about part of the cause of my loneliness does not make it any easier.
Since being single has been a huge part of my current sense of sorrow, I decided to look at the wonderful parts of not being in a romantic relationship. Please add any others that you think of in the comments.
The biggest disease this day and age is that of people feeling unloved. – Princess Diana
At work today, a few of us girls were talking about relationships. When I confessed that I had never officially had a boyfriend, one of my coworkers looked at me with surprise. “But you are so pretty!” She stated.
That comment was harmless for the most part. However, people often make remarks to single people that are annoying or even offensive. This is not necessarily related to mental health, but many people in recovery choose to be single until they are in a better place. Here is a list of some of the things not to say to someone who is single. Feel free to add your own in the comments.
