Anyone feel disconnected with people & family?
I am not sure how to handle this. I feel so disconnected with people, including my family ( not kids and husband). I canīt stand being around them. How can I move past this guilt? I think my life would be better not thinking about it. I am dreaded the holidays.
This place that I am in is like a prison to me. It hasnīt changed in 20 years. I never wanted to move back here, but my husband got a job here. I try to separate myself from everything, pretend that everything is o.k., but itīs not.

I know exactly what you mean...and so do others that I speak with.

This week is going to be especially intense too.

I think weīve all felt like that at times. Hang in there. Also, I know I find meaning in anything, anywhere, when I give it all to the Lord Jesus Christ. I will be praying for you

This is a common global problem. People who dont like each other outside of their immediate friends and relatives ....This is one of the things which will lead to the end of the world. There is love in the world but not nearly enough of it....not even close.

Have you forgiven your family for the out dated programming and endless guilt they lay on you???
Donīt feel comfortable, sum of us never have, maybe never will. The only person who can give you comfort - is in the mirror.damned

Re: Anyone feel disconnected with people & family?
Iīve felt disconnected from my family for a very long time. My youngest Son keeps in touch with me all the time, heīs a truck driver so he might be calling from NY or L.A.. My daughter lives a half mile from me and I never see her or hear from her. Her daughter(my grandaughter) comes by with my Great-Grandson just about every evening and visits awhile ot takes me to the store if i need to go. I donīt have a car and it makes it difficult to go whenever I need to.

My Grandaughter told me she asked her Mom why she never comes to see me and she said "I donīt have time"....OK.

My oldest Son has stopped calling me or coming over. He lives about 50 miles from me but would come by on the weekend.

Iīve been down with my back and have to get an MRI, so I haveīnt felt real great.

I donīt know what I have done to my 2 oldest children for them to treat me like this.

My bf is not fond of them because of how they hurt me. So, yeah, I feel very disconnected and yeah, being in pain alot just doesīnt help.

Yes, I also try to pretend everything is ok, but my bf can see right through me.

Re: Anyone feel disconnected with people & family?
ONe answer to these feelings of disconnectedness(long word, huh) is that we are consciously or subconsciously making a choice. IT is alright to refuse to assoctiate with certain people if they dont think the same as you. this can lead to lonliness but it is temporary and its better to be informed and aware so you can better survive the coming times. just hang in there!!

Re: Anyone feel disconnected with people & family?
Disconnected? Yep, been like this for 16 months and itīs getting worse. I have lost contact with most of my friends and I rarely leave the house anymore.

Everyone seems to be going slowly insane. Once rational and caring, they are now callous and cruel.

The real pain hasnīt even come yet, but it will, soon. Forgive others. Forgive yourself. Remember, itīs just a ride, not the end of time.

Peace.

Re: Anyone feel disconnected with people & family?
I have been like this for too long, I suppose. I am doing well with my husband(though we were separated earlier this year) and Iīm very close to my son. The rest of the family I just donīt want to be around at all. They donīt understand me, and donīt want to. I have no patience with them and just do my best to stay away. I have no real long-term gripe with anybody. I just know they donīt see life and the world in the same way as I see it. It makes me and them very uncomfortable-so why push the issue?

I dropped all my friends long ago. I have abandoned everyone except for the 2 people in the world that mean the most to me-and strangely Iīm content with that. Iīm friendly with our next door neighbors-but I donīt īhang outī with them by any means. Just say Hi and chat in the yard and go our separate ways.

Sometimes I feel like my life is really unhealthy. But then why do I feel so content this way?

Re: Anyone feel disconnected with people & family?
OP, I was like you a few years ago. I eventually chose to emigrate (to Europe) and I donīt go home, not even for Christmas. When family visit me thatīs fine because itīs only for a few days each year and theyīre not talking personal shit -- because of the foreign I can easily deflect them.

BTW, Iīve go some good political excuses for staying where I am and family understand it would be unwise to return. Suits me fine.

I dumped all my old friends. Donīt miss īem.

Here I have three or four good friends, but prefer to live alone with my books and computer, studying the new language and being completely *anonymous* in this world.

PYX,

yes its strange isnt it? i mean people call you anti social and say its not healthy but HEY! im happy this way. i feel good because i am following my own path, not someone elseīs. And when the SHTF your so called "friends and family" will forsake you and may try to stop you from doing whatever it is you feel you need to do.

so thats where we all are at now. its good we at least have the internet (for now) so we may find others of like mind. never know when that flood comes and you need a place to crash! ;)

Re: Anyone feel disconnected with people & family?
A lot of older people are mostly suffering from their own guilt, conscious or otherwise. Many werenīt so kind when they were young and had the power. How did you regard your own parents, how about your kids? Iīm a very withdrawn person myself but have good relations with my kids. I donīt have much trust for people in general they seem so malicious and mean, and itīs in their nature to be that way, they always look for peoples weakness and then prey on it. We have local social services people who drive people to suicide. We make war and kill innocent people. So I ask you, what kind of people are we. Most people never take responsibility for themselves and the things they do, but they suffer for it, just like many of you are doing and me too.

A Perfect Circle, "The Outsider"

Help me if you can,
Itīs just that this, is not the way Iīm wired so,
Could you please,
Help me understand why,
Why youīve given in to all these reckless dark desires youīre,
Lying to yourself again,
Suicidal imbecile,
Think about it, put it on a faultline,
Whatīll it take to get it through to you precious,
Iīm over this, why do you want to throw it away like this,
Such a mess, I donīt wanna watch you.

Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet at a time,
Whatīs your rush now,
Everyone will have his day to die.

Medicated, drama queen,
Picture perfect numb belligerence,
Narcissistic, drama queen,
Craving fame and all its decadence.

Lying through your teeth again,
Suicidal imbecile,
Think about it, put it on a faultline,
Whatīll it take to get it through to you precious
Iīm over this, why do you want to throw it away like this,
Such a mess, I donīt wanna watch you.

Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet at a time,
Whatīs your rush now,
Everyone will have his day to die.

They were right about you, (repeat)

Lying to my face again,
Suicidal imbecile,
Think about it, you put on a faultline,
Whatīll it take to get it through to you precious,
Iīm over this, why do you want to throw it away like this,
Such a mess,
Coalesce,
Coalesce.

Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet at a time,
Whatīs your hurry, everyone will have his day to die,
If you choose to pull the trigger,
Should your drama prove sincere,
Do it somewhere, far away from here.

This song speaks to me like no other I have heard in a while. I donīt want to kill myself, just sick of being stuck on this hellhole full of war, disease, famine, violence and hatred. We werenīt meant to live like this, something has got to change. My love for mankind isnīt dead, itīs just on life support and fading fast. Makes me wonder if Iīm just simply losing my mind.

Re: Anyone feel disconnected with people & family?
Maybe the reason some of us feel disconnected is that Christmas and Thanksgiving used to be special times, you could feel it in the air and the way people acted. But as we grow older we become jaded and materialistic, and watching the news doesnīt help either. We try to make a good environment for our children and at least attempt to bring the atmosphere of holidays past to the present, but it just isnīt the same.

Re: Anyone feel disconnected with people & family?
Rhyadar-

Yes, you have a good point.

Another odd thing with me lately is that I am absolutely driven to make everything by my own hands! I have taken up sewing, gardening, woodworking, wildcrafting, branching out in art that I donīt normally do, branching out in cooking and baking-I just feel the desire to make everything myself other than purchase someone elseīs work. And it is bordering on obsession.

Anyone else seeing this happening in their lives?

the holidays force people to get together and to act happy. it is really lunacy and brings on psychotic behavior and depression. plus people are forced to spend money on people they donīt like with money that hardly any of us has anymore.
