Anyone else feel like they may wind up alone forever? Like, you'll never meet the person for you? This is a constant fear of mine the plagues me daily. Anyone else? Or anyone have some words of encouragement?

      I feel this exact way all the time. I was married. Got divorced. He basically used my mental health and chronic pain against me. Told me it wasn’t his responsibility to take care of me. I was already insecure about being a burden to people and he threw it in my face. I’ve been unable to work since 2019… I just don’t see how anyone would want to take on all of my problems.

      I had always felt like that and it made me very sad and worried. But honestly, I think it just takes some time to find that perfect match! I am now with someone I want to be with for the rest of my life. It will happen for you, it’s just a long process to find someone that special!

      I feel the same exact way and it’s scary and all I can think about these days, along with what I’m going to do in the future 😔

      I used to feel this way for many years I just felt like I was destined to be alone forever & it was a big fear of mine, but I just keet putting myself out there till one day I met my Mr. Right & I was happy, don't give up keep putting yourself out there & you will soon find the one right for you.

      Lately, I try to reassure myself that if i'm able to love somebody deeply and unconditionally, like i know i can, have, and do... there's no way in hell that there isn't SOMEBODY in the world that can give the same compassion and adoration to me. Not because the ability to love makes a person worthy or unworthy of love in return, but because there's like 8 billion people out there and it's mathematically impossible by a huge amount to be the only person who can love somebody even in their darkest place. Our illnesses don't make us unlovable. Even though it so painfully feels like they do. There's people out there with a lot of love to give.

      Not alone... I was in a relationship for 5 years that i thought was bliss. Perfect. My best friend. We broke up (because of my mental health, i am assuming) and remained friends for 2 years. In December he ended the friendship because i expressed being suicidal (again) and i guess he took it personally or something...but he didn't want to be there for me any longer. I don't know how to trust people anymore. It's terrifying.
