Thread: Teddy Bear to Cure Loneliness?

  1. #1

    Default Teddy Bear to Cure Loneliness?

    So, who on here has been lonely before? I'm gonna assume everyone has at some point. However, some are probably lonely a bit more often than others, and it's pretty likely that I fall into that category. Though I have friends, I'm a relatively isolated guy and I spend a vast majority of my time by myself. My life is also dreadfully lacking in affection. Given that I just started college and I'm insanely busy, this hasn't been much of an issue lately, but eventually, that lack of closeness really starts to get to me.

    I've found that when loneliness starts setting in, nothing helps better than grabbing my teddy bear and just snuggling the crap out of it for awhile. Surprisingly, it legitimately satisfies that painful craving for affection and within a few minutes I feel completely better. Don't get me wrong, it's still not as good as actual human contact/affection, but it's a great temporary solution. Does anyone else do this? Can you relate at all?

    Believe me buddy, I can definitely relate. Amazing thing about lonely people is the solidary that they feel toward fellow allies against loneliness. Anyways, I can relate to what you're going through. I am a senior in college, and a biochemistry major and work in a lab; I know what you mean by insanely busy at the college level! In my life I am an only child, disowned by my mother's family and all my dad's is dead, isolation and me time is second nature. Family was never really affective, and closing in in 22 I've never been kissed, let alone laid. wouldn't know what to do if a girl showed the slightest interest in me.

    Ramblings aside, I know what you mean. I used to try to find comfort often at the end of a liquor bottle, but it never came. I don't have a Teddy Bear of my own, but I have a body length pillow that I will cuddle the hell out of some nights just to not feel alone, and that very sensation of having the arms full make those feelings disappear. Until awake. It works, and I can see myself doing it for some time.

    Stay strong, friend, loneliness can be a serious beast

    Yup definitely. I don't have many friends I see often and I spend most of my time alone and my teddy bear keeps my company

    Default Teddy Bear to Cure Loneliness?

    I've felt lonely before but it hasn't happened often and I've never felt too lonely, but I've had my moments (like most of us have probably had) for sure.

    When I was younger I use to have some plushies and probably enjoyed them, but don't remember being super into them. However, about 2-3 years ago I got a stuffed Simba plush and have slept with him just about every night and he's definitely comforting to have around. No matter what, I can always count on him being on my bed every night waiting for me and no matter what I've done or am doing, I can expect no negative judgements from him.

    Honestly, I wish I could appreciate my plushies more and that they still held the power they use to have. For instance I'm still totally aware they're "just" stuffed animals with no real feelings or emotions, granted I'd feel weird doing something that could hurt them (like storing them in an uncomfortable position or tossing them around).

    But anyway, I love having my Simba plush around and whenever I'm down (whether it's from being lonely or other things) he's definitely comforting so I can relate to how you feel.

    Sounds like you could use a little plush friend to have around yourself.

    OMG yes! I love snuggling my plushy tiger when I'm lonely or just feeling down. I also have pretend conversations with him (just imagination, I'm not crazy). It really helps me work my feelings out sometimes. You have hit on a thread that a lot of people here can relate to.

    I've gotten to the point that my bear is somehow more than just an inanimate object, and I get kind of bummed out whenever I start to get in that "it's just a toy" frame of mind. I can so relate to not wanting to hurt him though. Once, he fell from the to shelf of my closet where I keep him, and I darted over to him, picked him up and started whispering to him how sorry I was and trying to comfort him... it occurred to me that he wasn't actually a living thing but I didn't care. Kinda funny how that works.

    Little2Roo and Milko, Oh god, don't get me started on talking to them These days it's usually just cutesy baby talk type stuff not full conversations but I do find myself telling him about my feelings every now and then.

    Funny story, when I was little I actually believed my stuffed animals could communicate with me. One time when I was 6, I tried writing "are you happy" on a piece of paper and leaving it in front of my favorite kitty plushy. I was playing video games at the time and about 10 minutes later I turned around and it said "yes ". Mind. Blown. What I didn't consider is that I was so engrossed in the game that my dad literally did it right behind me without me noticing. It gets better. He then continued this charade for entire year and a half without me knowing it was him. So from kindergarten to the start of 2nd grade, I literally thought all my stuffed animals were alive.

    *Hugs* I do snuggle my bunny but my teddybear stays on the shelf. I mostly miss my husband since he works away from home. I miss being able to hug my 4 sons. Only 1 is home right now but teenage boys are always trying to get away from mom's hugs. It is a good thing I also have 4 daughters. One is on here though so just gets virtual hugs. Why does life seem to separate people so much?
