WHAT DOES LONELINESS FEEL LIKE?
( No worries, I’m OK, but I do feel lonely many times, even if I have a life, and I keep busy, and yes, I have you )
Tell me about your own experience, I would love to hear from you. Let’s bring mental health out of the closet.
For me, loneliness feels like suddenly I have a mountain of sand over my body, and it’s heavy and does not let me breathe well, and somehow the sand gets inside my body, and each grain of sand is like a little knife and it hurts, going deeper and deeper, and I can not move.
And my tears come out slowly, almost like slow motion, and I feel like screaming, but I can’t. I’m in bed, facing the ceiling, and somehow I feel like a prisoner.SMILING, but EXPRESSIVE ME.
