Why does it hurt to cry alone? Is it because there’s no one there to console you? Or is it because you’re afraid? You’re afraid because there’s no one there to hear your cries. Maybe you’re not really crying at all. You’re not really hurting. If a tree falls in the woods but there’s no one around to hear it. Does it make a sound?

  1. This might have been a rhetorical question but it’s probably the first one for me. 🙂 Crying alone just punctuates the fact that you’re alone, then you start thinking that nobody cares about you and blah blah. Just becomes a self-feeding swirl of negativity.

    1. It’s even worse when you’re not physically alone but the person you want to comfort you is off in dreamland leaving you alone with your thoughts and feelings.

      1. You’re right, I didn’t even think about that because it’s been so long since I’ve had someone whom I wanted comfort from. I just listened to a podcast yesterday about how if you don’t have friends who are willing to sit and cry with you through your worst moments, you might want to find some more friends.

      2. I don’t have any friends, not even one. I have a partner, but that’s it. He will sit and comfort me but I cry for a long time when I’m in one of my moods and he works a lot so he sleeps a lot. It just so happens I’m the most sad at night which only serves to make me ever sadder. Its a vicious cycle.

      3. I feel you, I lost all my friends through my addiction and am in a very lengthy rebuilding phase. As long as we keep doing what we’re supposed to do and staying as positive as possible, we’ll get through it. 🙂

      4. I understand you completely, I have always had trouble making friends. The few I managed to make at University all disappeared during the hardest point of my life and since then I’ve kept everyone at a lengthy distance.
        You’re very right though!
