    Forever Alone

    Orson Welles once said: “We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.” How true that is. For a lot of people, the solution to their loneliness is to find another. Don't...

    Alone Among Six Billion

    Why do some of us feel alone among the billions of people that inhabit the world? Why does it feel like a stainless steel world? Everything seems so cold and with no warmth. Is there one person that I can connect to for friendship or companionship? I am sure there are. Just have...

    Loneliness And Your Memories My Best Companions

    Lonliness and your memories are my best companions. Now you are gone much silence in this room. I dont want to wake of the dreams in which i dream you. Your smile and your laughters are echoeing in my silent heart. Your lovely face is no more the candle of this room. I am here...

    And it honestly sucks ok,

    not being able to talk with anyone. Always having your guard up. I wonder if i'll ever be able to let anyone in.

    I've spent my 19 year existence in this world

    thinking that will face the world alone. If this curse will continue, i will no longer know what is this life for. I was empty since the beginning of time, will i ever find my fill?

    The Inside Out.

    The hardest part of holding on I guess it's letting go, for all I known so far, it's to watch things go throught my fingers, like little grains of sand, without been able to hold them. so whenever I Feel Alice is Close, I realized she never has been so far apart from me. and I...

    A Paradox In Life

    The older I get, the more lonely I get. It's an odd feeling... Aren't we supposed to grow closer, more endeared, with our loved ones as we age? I always thought touches would become softer. Gazes would linger longer. I would remember the smell of the people in my life, their...

    Up, School, Work, Home

    That's my life in a nutshell unless I'm performing. I have no time or energy to go out. I have alot of work to do. I go out when I can, but I go out alone and come home alone. I prefer not to go out at all. Nobody wants me around... Fine. The hell with them. I don't give a damn...

    No One Talks To Me.

    and I'm getting pretty used to it now. No one calls or texts or talks to me on the Internet. I always have to put in the effort and being at home makes me feel depressed. I'm not saying that I feel sorry for myself, what I am trying to say is that I hate being the one that always...

    Not A Single Soul

    My past is a tapestry of violence, fear and survival and because of that, I cannot relate to my peers. Somehow, I've traversed through this life without a single friend. Until recently I found it empowering to be alone, but now that the kids are older and ready to journey on I...

    Yes, that is exactly the way I feel right now.

    I can't help but feel depressed and lonely all the time. I mean, my painting just got selected to be exhibited in a famous fine arts academy of my city but all I feel is sadness and how lonely I am! It's the same every single day. I've forgotten how to appreciate the good things...

    I once had these thoughts

    that one day I'd find clarity and it would be so freeing. I'd let go of everything and everything would fall into place. Id no longer have to protect so many things. Now I know that was a dream. That clarity didn't create freedom or peace, it's thought provoking and makes you...

    I think I'm alone. Physically,

    of course not. I have lots of friends and family who have and who always will love me. But mentally and emotionally, I'm on my own, and I have been for a while now. It's something that I've become accustomed to. Sure, I have people that I could talk to, but they'd never truly...

    where I can talk about anything, I don't know how many of you can relate to me but I bet there are lots. I'm a teenager making my way through high school, if that isn't terrible enough already. But it gets worse. In grade four, I was labeled as "gifted". Now that sounds like a...

    We all feel like we're alone.

    Some every day, others only feel it a few times in their life. But we all feel it. The important thing to remember is that no madder what your situation. There is someone else in the world who feels the same, or at least would understand.
