It is good to have some moments of solitude so we can pray and reflect, but we should not isolate ourselves from others completely. Jesus also knew the feelings of rejection. They were prophesied in Isaiah 53:3: “He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
What does the Bible say about depression and loneliness?

Is it a sin to stay single?
Singleness According to the New Testament
Matthew 19:11-12 states that a person who marries is to leave his or her parents and remain married, but the person who remains single does not carry the responsibility of marriage. Jesus is our model and a perfect example of how we should live our lives. Jesus was not married.

Is loneliness a choice?
We feel lonely when we desire distractions from ourselves. Everyone feels lonely from time to time. Indeed, loneliness is not a reality, it’s a choice. If we change the way we look at the world, ourselves and being alone, we can begin to see that loneliness is as natural as it is impermanent.
Does God put someone on your mind?
It’s pretty cool because when that happens (a picture of someone pops into your mind or you are reminded of them or you have them on your heart) it’s usually God reminding you of that person for a reason. He is also drawing you into a conversation with Him (prophecy and intercession).
Does God get sad?
That verse expresses true sorrow from the heart of God. Even before God became man, it’s clear throughout the Old Testament that God feels sorrow, even weeps for the crushing blows of His people. If we are made in the image of God and we feel sorrow and cry, then I believe that God does too.

Beyond that, loneliness motivates you to take necessary action that will relieve it. Emotions do have a purpose, regardless of how unpleasant some of them can make us feel. Loneliness can make you feel empty and a sense of longing for someone to really know you.
Why does God punish me all the time?
Feeling like you’re being punished by God is normal for two reasons: 1) life is filled with difficult losses, terrible tragedies, and dry stretches of boredom and loneliness; and 2) you are human, which means you screw up. You make mistakes, hurt others, fail to live up to your own standards, and let people down.
What to expect when God elevates you?
When God decides to elevate you, He will open doors that no man can tamper with or shut on you! And He will come and find you and lift you up. We can’t do it on our own power. It’s God who decides to elevate people (Psalm 75:7).
