No matter where I place myself in life, I constantly struggle to connect and make friends with the people I am around. I’m almost 40, and I have no true friends.
To make matters worse, I live far away from my family. I feel so alone.
Adding to that, I’m Frei, and I’m no longer living or practicing the Orthodox customs I grew up knowing.
I’m in place, in middle of nowhere, with no help, no hope, no happiness.
I feel that I don’t belong with the secular world, and I don’t belong with the religious world. There is no place for me.
Sadly, I feel like I have so many skills, and so much to offer to this world. But I’m apparently not wanted. Not in any walk of life.
There are pills, yes. There is therapy, yes. But those both don’t seem to be the answers to my problems.
