Proverbs31:28 Posted October 6, 2008 Report Share Posted October 6, 2008 And, I am not referring to sex. Just to be in the presence of and interact with other people. Getting a hug when you're down. Having someone who will let you lay your head on their shoulder and just cry? I have not had that for years. I have been divorced for 3 years but its been since before then. Lately, I have been having this overwhelming sense of loneliness, sadness, emptiness. I do not miss my Ex, thats not what this is about. I do not want another man, thats not what this is about either. I have no plans to date or marry again. I rolled the dice and I lost. I can live with that, so please don't suggest I find a man or start dating. Not going to happen. I'm just wondering if the lack of physical interaction with other human beings can affect the psyche like this? I do hug my kids many times per day and always tell them I love them several times per day. And, they hug me and they tell me they love me. But, there is no one else in my life. Outside of my children, every relationship I have (except for my best friend, but she lives 2 hours away) is superficial and remains on the surface. Does this even matter in the grand scheme of things? Do I need contact and interaction? Obviously, some part of me believes I do because I am compelled to make sure my kids know they are loved because I don't want them ever having this feeling of being unloved. I am beginning to wonder if this is the true source of my depression. Ugh, I don't even know if I make sense. I am sure it matters not, anyway.
