Sometimes life is excruciatingly unbearable, and others don't understand when we try to share. We implore, we coerce, we cry out in frustration, and then we retreat back into the "house of ourselves," back into alone-ness, and despair.
Sometimes we don't realize that we're trying to share with the wrong people. Sometimes, the closest people around us can't or refuse to sympathize, and comfort us. Sometimes, we have to make new friends with those who are compassionate and empathetic about our cause or who we are.
The greatest empathizer is Jesus Christ, who felt beforehand what we feel today. And only Jesus Christ knows exactly what we're feeling, to the very minute pinpoint of emotion. Only Jesus Christ can send to us the perfect empathizing friendships that we so desperately need, in order for us to feel healed, to feel normal, to feel a part of the world.
Have hope in what God through Jesus Christ can do. Though you are lonely, and feel that you can't go on, God does care. No matter how it looks, He is aware.
A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need.
(Proverbs 17:17 New Living Translation-NLT)
