Is it just me, or are there others here that have been left alone most of this year? I have no family here, so even the so called holidays will be extremely difficult for me,,no one is available to visit me or even talk to me. My phone only rang twice this year,, both wrong numbers. Going anywhere is not going to happen,, too many people are afraid,, can’t even enjoy shopping,,too many rude people yelling at each other if the mask is even touched. What will people do if a real plague hits? They are already panicking to extremes ,,,

What is most important Peter is that you respect & believe in yourself & your beliefs for your fulfilment not that others demand of you.
Loneliness is a state of mind that can kill and cripple if you let it!!!
Be mindful that you have to create your own happiness and entertainment!!!
If you depend upon others to make you happy, you will chase it from loneliness still you die of your own mentally fixed loneliness!!!

I hope you will consider finding a way to share your crafting both commercially and as a teacher to young children after the pandemic is safer. I can see that building some satisfying relationships in your future.Hugs
Well, this is actually a real plague, and a lot of people are in the same situation as you seem to be. I sympathize with you because I believe there's a particular edge to the experience of isolating alone, and I've found reaching out to others online to be key to me getting through this past 10 months of living alone.
There are a lot of friendly people on this site that may help fulfill some of your lonliness. Why not check out some of the groups and see if you can connect with someone? Good luck to you, and please know you're not alone.
There's a lot of people that are feeling isolated and alone. You find out who your true friends are when shit hits the fan. The older one gets, the more one realizes what really matters in life. Its nice to have this group site for communication and connecting to others.
