I Always Feel Like Something Is Missing

    Hi all. I'm writing here out of need to feel a

    connection. I am battling many different things in life right now and I feel very alone. I embarked on a new career this year, hoping that would help my self esteem and keep my thoughts at bay. So far, it's been a mixed bag. A few cool work friends now (plus) but it has also...

    I Can't Quite Explain It, But...

    It's true. I've always felt this way. It doesn't matter what I do, really, I always get that feeling that there is something I am missing in my life. Like nothing I do is good enough, and nothing is done good enough. It's something I can't quite put my finger on, but I...

    I Think Thats What Drives Me...

    That eternal search to feel complete... its not in the form of another being... its within myself... I think the day I can conquer my demons and get my head right may be the day I will feel complete... until then I will always feel like something is missing...

    I don't understand why I feel like I'm missing something. I already know God and I'm not a mean person. I wonder why i'm feeling this way.  It's depressing me.  I can't seem to concentrate on anything because there's an empty space.  No one quite...

    I can be happy for short periods of time,

    like when out with a friend or group of friends, and feel like my life is complete (not over, but rather as if the pieces are all there). Usually I start feeling lonely after a while of being alone, though, and I almost always long to have a romantic partner....someone that i...

    Forever Sore

    I wonder why I feel so famished, for my stomach is bloated, and my jaw is sore from chewing up so much of the food that I adore. I wonder why I feel this lonely, when my ear canals overflow with the echoes of friendly voices and there is a smile on the face of everyone I can see...

    My mind constantly wanders

    and thinks about thing that I will never see in my lifetime and it sort of makes me... sad. I can't help but wonder what's out there in the universe. I often feel like I was born in the wrong time period or something.

    Lost ..........

    Without your presence, there's nothing for me. I don't understand what sort of state I'm in. Though I've finally found you, why is there still a sort of emptiness in my heart? Why does my heart feel so empty? Why does my heart constantly sense that something's missing...

    No matter, what I am doing with my life,

    or who is in my life, I always feel like there is something missing, or something holding me back from doing something great. I can't shake the feeling, I have felt like that way since Emily died. The feeling never goes away.

    Lately that's all I've been doing. Just thinking what'll happen tomorrow. I'll be facing so much. I'll be facing the fact that I just told my friend I'm bi, I'll be facing my friend in such sadness when the bully strikes again, two friends at eachother's throats, and so much more...

    I Am Always Off Kilter.

    I am always just a little off kilter to what is going on around me. I tend to drift and fade out of what's going on because I become so engrossed in what I'm doing.  I've always been like that. Now here on EP lately I feel the same way. I feel like I'm out of touch with...
