It's difficult, at least for me, to comment on your situation, without knowing perhaps many other details, even all the people involved. It would seem
you're referring to fair weather friends, in any case, which most "friends" of the world are. It can be sort of like the multi-millionaire, surrounded
by the party, until the money's gone. But I can say there were times in my life I felt very lonely, only to find I was never alone, that, in my case,
times of sorrow, were when the Lord had drawn me closer to Him, perhaps even allowed setbacks to pull me back into a proper orbit of His presence.
I couldn't really feel lonely, now, ever, for many years now. God is the greatest friend, holds those that love Him in His very hands, and He can well

really even care what people think of me, in this world, even delight in some sorts of persecution, knowing I must have well poked the devil in the
eye, great reward in heaven, you know, Matthew 5:10-12.
Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor
You can also more find Him there, pray and simply ask Him to speak to your heart, learn an even blessed solitude:
Psalms 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
Psalms 4:4 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.
The world is all about dragging us away from God, distracting us from getting in touch with Him. My times of abandonment were more a wakeup call that
I had abandoned Him, for a whole lot of worldly nothings, and I needed a dose of loneliness, but whether this is for your situation cannot say, of
