But yeah hindsight is 20/20 and the grass is always greener, do you look at yourself and think, wow I actually would like more human connection in my life then what I’m currently getting.

Log in to Reply When I was married Log in to Reply I’m new to the military and up until recently I’ve been pretty tunnel visioned on my training. One day I stopped and looked around at the people around me who were going out on town and here I was staying in the barracks all weekend. Up until then I was content in my social complacency but now I wish I had made more of an effort to include myself. Now I have grown close to quite a few guys and I’m out more often. It helps too that I moved to a new command with a much more social culture. I guess the take away is look for what your missing and put yourself in a position to find it. The worst thing that could happen is you go out by yourself one night and if you don’t connect with someone you still had a night out Log in to Reply Right now. But realistically, what does loneliness even mean, when you grew up broken, never really could trust others or be comfortable around others, and the only moments of comfort were those where you were alone, with no one else in the house – or maybe a few moments in your childhood before you understood how vulnerable you can be made by others. Given that context, loneliness is good. It’s the only way to feel comfortable. Longing for company still exists, and might make you feel what is commonly described as “loneliness”, but it’s not as simple for you. It’s an emotion that stands at conflict with comfort. Because of that, it’s not comparable with what others feel when lonely. It just becomes an impossible dream for a different life you are simply not going to achieve – and don’t want to achieve.
