I feel like the darkness is getting even darker. Its surprising how much i dont talk about, mostly because i feel like it doesnt help. being alone isnt something that talking can really fix. its frustrating to think like this, but its all the hidden voices, shouting their insecurities. its been 6 years, and everyday past that just feels like 6 more. sure, i could go out, meet people...but...im not a bar guy, im not religious, so churches are out...I work, come home, chill with my kids...work...cycle repeats....so, tried online dating, failed, it seems im either picky, or desperate, maybe both...yet i try....im rambling, sorry guys, but yea

      @Dad.of.Many by choice actually, grew up not going to church, then my teen years, i searched, baptized a baptist, but after a car accident...i lost all religious beliefs, i tend to get into the words, they are my art form, i write a lot of poetry, as for social media...i kinda dont like people, weird in someone looking to find someone, but i find people draining, so, i mostly use this and Facebook...i usually am at peace most times, recent events have proven difficult, but, i thank you, and hopefully will chance a conversation at a later time

      I'm married with kids and love my family, but I still understand the darkness and loneliness anxiety and depression dishes out by the bucket full. 🪣 I use art therapy to help ease up the darks and it helps. Also social media. You say you aren't religious, is that by choice or you just have never been? Would you be willing to watch a few online services? I am of the Baptist faith and I find a lot of peace and comfort watching services online. I am also borderline agoraphobic so actually attending church in person is difficult. There is something out there that will help diminish the darks. Keep searching. And once you find some peace, who knows, maybe that special someone will come around. If you ever need to talk I'm usually online at night.
