Post Lonely around the holidays
on: September 9, 2013, 4:55 PM

Anyone else feel much more lonely around the holidays? Kinda of like your helpless- I always have this strong cloud over my shoulders and it's so hard with the holidays and having true simcha even though I love sukkos, and I love all the holidays, it happens to be I don't feel so complete. The feeling is actually horrible, and I know others out there feel the same...

Anyone have advice on getting over it?

Sometimes I guess I feel like that too... but that's (one of the reasons) why I try to get out every single day of Yom Tov and Shabbos. If there's no one to visit because people are away (or married, more every Yom Tov B"h) I like to just take long walks. Where I live (not during the summer) there are always a lot of people around and I meet people I know.

I think we should all take walks together, anyone in?! 😎
I always try to go ova and help friends out with their kids, an extra hand they can use! Especially when it's a 3 day Yom Tov!

hi! I think all of us on this awesome site have to put our heads together and think of a solution for yom tov!
i love my family, all 7 of my older siblings and all their kids k"h, but i'm tired of being a cleaning lady and babsitter- especially when it is a three day yom tov!

Sometimes I think it would be nice to go away to a hotel, but that is 1. very expensive, and 2. doesn't always feel very yom tovdik, and it is not a great idea to be single, have oily hair, and be with tonz of ppl who are looking around for shidduchim for their nephews!
I kind of want to be with other singles, but that would probably be pretty depressing....
that is why i'm turning to all of you for help. I know pesach is 6 months away, but it may take that long to come up with the perfect idea. of course i hope it won't be nogea by then, and we should all find our zivug hagon!

sorry, don't mean to be such a kvetch, just getting harder as the years are going by.

i just want to take this opportunity to also thank the people who started inshidduchim.com, whenever i feel like i'm alone in this situation, it feels great to be able to join together with so many people from all over the world to get chizuk and just have company!
yashor koach!
