You might want to set up a Sparkpage and tell a little about yourself and your goals, and maybe start blogging a bit now and then. There are a lot of people that visit the personal sparkpages and leave comments on those and blog entries. Once you start getting some comments, you can always go back to them and reread them when you're feeling alone, definitely a way to make yourself feel better!

I am just catching up on all of my e-mail today and noticed this post. Hopefully you are feeling a little less lonely than you were a few days ago.
I can relate to where you are coming from. I am fairly new to SP and find a community this size a little overwhelming. So I understand how you can feel alone in such a large sea of people. I try to look at it from the other side though. Out of all of these people I should be able to find a few people with whom I have things in common, a few people who I can encourage and receive encouragement from, a few people who like me just how I am. So for now I am looking at other people's sparkpages, reading their blogs and posting on the message boards. It is a little scary for me to put myself out there and maybe you feel this way too?? The more I do it though, the more I find that the risk is definitely worth the reward. emoticon Hopefully we can find some people we click with! I look forward to getting to know you better! Lisa

Sometimes I feel like I post and post and nobody responds, but then I get that one response I needed! Keep up the good work and don't lose heart!

I've felt the same way a lot of the time. It has gotten better over time, and here's some things that I did to overcome this:

1. Smile - A cheery face is much more approachable, plus it can make me feel better. (laughing is even better)
2. Don't be afraid to start a conversation. - The person on the other end might be just as apprehensive.
3. Try to frame things in the positive.
4. Ask questions.
5. Breathe.
6. Listen.
7. Focus less on what other people think about you than what you think about you.

These are things that worked for me. Things that I am still working on. They may work for you as well. Good luck in your journey, and remember that you are not alone

So sorry you felt alone. Just chat away and post each day on several of the threads... There are several team members here on this team as well as other teams. It took me awhile, too, to get used to how to set things up, post, join other Sparkteams etc... I am still learning!!! You are not alone. We all care.

Hey, hadn't noticed your posts. Maybe in threads that I don't frequent. Anyway, I have been there, feeling as if no one wants to help you!! I am on, a lot. I also use the same Yahoo! messanger id that I use here for posts Ravyn_2006. Feel free to try me anytime. Sometimes, I go invisable to everyone, but it is usually turned on. Try me and if I am here I will respond. Just let me know you are from SP, okay. That goes for anyone, during the week days, if you need me I am here to listen. Lady knows, that I have had enough people do the same for me!!

I'm very sorry you are feeling alone, this is a great and supportive team. I didn't remember seeing your SP name before so I checked your page and you have only posted one other time and you received 16 replies. I think if you joined in on some of the topics you will find some great support. I see you joined the Biggest Loser team but have not posted there. I know several people on that team and they are very good at making people feel welcome. So please take the time and join in on the conversations. You can do it and we are here to help.

Just hang in there. Everyone goes through this once & awhile. The best thing to do is to get people that will listen to you. You are not along in this, if you need someone to talk to I'm here. emoticon

I feel so alone here! I have sent several e-mails and replied to a number of topics and I get no reply. I eat when my emotions get so cloudy. This aloneness has followed me through all my life since I wasa child. I was never picked for groups in school or I was the last one standing so I "had" to be picked. I am fighting for my life and I am so alone...I start to wonder...why bother!
