That article addressed the physical sense of loneliness, of feeling bored and lonely at home because my husband was away. It was about missing the companionship of a spouse who was expected to come home in the near future. This article is different. This is about the emotional loneliness, the psychological feeling of being lonely and unconnected when your husband or wife is sitting right next to you. That kind of loneliness is more painful than the loneliness of missing someone who is physically absent.

Get clear in your own mind what you want from your marriage. What will help you feel connected and understood? Coping with when you feel alone in your marriage means you need to do some heavy lifting.
Think about what you want and if your husband can give it to you. Your husband may not be able to give you everything you need, but you need to be clear on what you want. What role do you play in your loneliness? You have to find internal joy and peace that will carry you through all situations, no matter how lonely your marriage is.
