Publisher's Description

From a level of pain that must have been festering inside of him for most of his life, the young man erupted with a shout that shook the room and reverberated deep inside all who were present:
"Alone sucks!"

Everyone struggles. And everyone has a story. But we hide it because it’s embarrassing to admit we don’t have it all together. We conceal our private pain and fake it to fit in.

Are any of these affecting you or someone you know?

  • losing good sleep
  • attracting lonely friends
  • living on social media
  • feeling sad or depressed
  • being obsessed with stuff
  • consistently overreacting
  • always getting sick
  • crying more or caring less

Alone Sucks tells the story of aloneness and untangles the many lies and messiness of life that have entrapped people for ages. You can discover your identity, be the person God intended, and help others know they matter.

There’s a simple cure for our human crises. Pain doesn’t have to be permanent. And lonely doesn’t have to last forever.

Editorial Reviews

We don’t do our best work—or live our best lives—alone. Timothy Eldred beautifully illustrates this in his latest book Alone Sucks, painting a picture of what a whole life looks like and why it involves more than us sitting by ourselves. Don’t miss this important work at just the right time!
—JEFF GOINS, best-selling author of The Art of Work and Real Artists Don’t Starve
 
Loneliness is one of those rare ailments that defiantly objects to publicity. Bringing it into the light with honesty and unvarnished vulnerability is the first hammer-whack on its ceramic frailty. Through his own story of acute isolation, Tim Eldred names the squiggly things under the rock, carrying the hope of light into dark places.
—MARK OESTREICHER, partner, The Youth Cartel, and author of Hopecasting: Finding, Keeping and Sharing the Things Unseen

With more outlets to "connect" than ever before, it’s remarkable how such a sizable portion of the population feels desperately alone. In Alone Sucks, Tim Eldred opens a dialogue for all ages about true relational intimacy and our basic need for connectivity.
—VALORIE KONDOS FIELD, UCLA gymnastics head coach and six-time NCAA Champion
 
The "bent to wander" is never louder or more singular than when we’re alone and isolated. My friend Tim Eldred bravely and honestly lights up the dark corners of isolation and has inspired me to be more intentional to seek authentic community.
—GEOFF MOORE, recording artist and songwriter

Alone Sucks comes at just the right time. This isn’t just another book for everyone else to read—it hit home for my own daily struggle. Tim’s insight and refreshing honesty will give you the courage to face your fears and the wisdom to help others as well.
—Mike Penberthy, NBA Champion and assistant coach of the New Orleans Pelicans
 
Alone Sucks is the message we all need to hear. Tim says the right words at just the right time in our society to guide us through the stormy waters of life. This book is filled with real answers we can’t ignore, especially for the next generation.
—Joe Bonsall, forty-three-year member of the American music group The Oak Ridge Boys and author of ten books

Heart-healing wisdom! Every page of Alone Sucks is saturated with compassion. Tim’s soul-bearing story reveals the sorrow and solution of being alone. This book is a life preserver that will pull you out of the undertow of life and help you rescue others.
—Kathy Branzell, national coordinator, LOVE2020
 
Alone Sucks describes a reality we all face. Tim Eldred’s personal story of aloneness and thoughtful words about how to counteract its effects will be an encouragement both to those
who’ve been there themselves and for those who serve the many "alones" among us.
—Crystal Kirgiss, PhD, Purdue University, author, speaker, and Young Life regional trainer

Brilliant and compelling! God has taught Tim Eldred powerful insights he shares openly in this can’t-put-down book. The vulnerable and transparent lessons in Alone Sucks will bring fulfilling relationships and community to many people—young and old.
—Karl F. Schaller, vice president, Summit Ministries
 
Words can’t express the need for this book in our generation. Alone Sucks speaks directly to the core of your being—you won’t want to put it down. Tim’s humor, raw honesty, and the unapologetic truth he speaks will hit home with whoever picks up this book.
—Masey McLain, actress, speaker, and author of It’s Worth It

Loneliness is at the root of so much personal and cultural suffering. But there’s hope! In Alone Sucks, Tim Eldred addresses this important and timely topic by sharing his own personal story and God’s remedy for the aloneness he never intended for us.
—Dr. Wess Stafford, president emeritus, Compassion International
 
Timothy Eldred’s Alone Sucks is a raw, refreshing, and real look at something we all know—we were created to be in relationship. Using personal stories and amusing anecdotes, Tim drives his point home and calls us to genuine reflection.
—Jay and Laura Laffoon, cofounders, Celebrate Ministries, Inc.

You should absolutely read Alone Sucks. But you should positively not read it—alone. Reading this book by yourself would be wrong. Instead, you should read this book alone—together. Yes, most definitely. Alone-together is the right way to read this book.
—Chris Folmsbee, president, Burlap Media, and cofounder, icoachforfree.com
 
Timely and well-written, Alone Sucks reinforces the biblical perspective that we were created to relate. Alone does suck! Without caring connections, bad things happen. You will benefit from Tim’s insights about aloneness. Read it and reap great rewards.
—Dr. David Ferguson, executive director, GreatCommandment.net

A must read! Alone Sucks does what Tim Eldred has done for years—shocks us into reality. We must start hearing the cries of the multitudes being swallowed alive, stop pointing out their flaws, and begin penetrating their lives by building real relationships.
—Bob Lenz, founder, Life Promotions, and author of Dignity Revolution
 
Alone Sucks is as clear as it gets and has the power to touch and heal through Tim’s straight forward, empathic, and humorous approach to the struggles of humanity.
—Amanda Colleen Williams, eight-time platinum awarded singer-songwriter
