    Be Alone, Or Share the One I'm With?

    Can I be true to myself and will I regret the chances I don't take to seek or follow my hearts desire. Should I turn away from or make a clean sweep of that which does not honor or sustain my passion and love, and in this, I am afraid to be alone. Will I have the power to...

    Seeking An Open Ear

    I have always been this way

    now at age of 22 , I really fear that may be I will be this way forever. Not that anything is wrong with being alone but it hurts sometime when you see people in love, and that thing is not happening with you. Sometimes I am okay with being alone for rest of my life, and that...

    I've Cursed Myself

    My father had a horrible temper.  He could make you feel lower than worm-slime with a simple tone of voice.  He also hit. To his credit, every time we got into it, he would leave me alone for a bit and then come and apologize to me.  I spent the majority of his...

    No One Wants Me

    My fear and insecurities get the best of me, they tear me apart and leave me broken time and time again. For I know I need love (and to be loved), it is what I yearn for and crave.... But for the life of me, I will never look for it or try to get it. I push people away...

    I Will Never Have Anyone Again

    I feel isolated and alone even when there are people around me. When I've tried to express my feelings they look at me like I have two heads. They think I should be easily moving forward and starting a new life but they don't understand I feel as if my feet are stuck in cement...

    I Know Why I'm Alone.

    I have male friends interested in me, but I pick them apart to such a degree that they can't stand looking at themselves anymore. I tear them down into little details until they don't feel like humans but rather a chart on virtues and vices. Then, if that doesn't work I push...

    Pretending to be happy daily is exhausting.

    Being alone is not that scary as compared to being with someone who makes you feel alone.

    My bigger fear is to die alone and no one to care about me. I am afraid that i will never find someone to love me and to care about me. I am not getting any younger anymore. I am already 27 years old and i fear i will be alone when i am 30 years old. :(

    I Think I Might Be Meant To Be Alone

    I'll be 28 in about 2 weeks, and I feel like I'll always be alone. I go to the movies alone, I go rock climbing alone, I go scuba diving alone, I go out to eat alone, I go to the gym alone, basically I do everything alone. Maybe that's just how it's supposed to be.

    I am convinced that I will not find a person that shares enough in common to really become connected with me. If it isn't one thing, it is another. I'm not good looking enough, I'm too smart, I'm not laidback, I don't pay enough attention, and so on. It's exhausting trying to get...
