I think many of us feel like that...i feel it when i fall ill, or my aims take two step behind when i fall ill, when there is a season of marriages taking place all around, when someone has somebody to talk to and feel the joy of i have nobody but my family ...which is a big asset ....but i still feel lonely ... i try to make myself poise ...but this feeling keep coming back...
