    Beautiful Melancholy

    I am alone but I don't feel very much lonely at the moment. Matter of fact, I would rather be alone than be caught in mind-numbing social situation. I have lots of unpleasant pasts which I don't wanna unearth as much as possible because sometimes it hurts. Like in the movie said...

    and inexplicably terrified of people in every

    conceivable way. I've had unhindered practice at burying it beneath a paper thin facade but very occasionally it dissolves and I drown in it. I ruin every opportunity I ever have at happiness and cannot seem to keep the people I want close to me around. I alienate both myself...

    I hate being alone. Not just physically.

    I feel alone mentally too and I hate it. It kills me and it makes me want to cry.

    I am alone. I am a shadow of my past.

    Im nothing more than outlines of the person I was when I was happy. All I long for is for another soul to fill the void and fill up my being once again.

    I'm Tired Of People

    My best friend just called me a liar. How could we ever be friends after that? What could I possible share with her without wondering if she thinks I am lying to her? How can you know you have a true friendship if one of the people thinks the other is a liar? I gave everything I...

    My experience of school life is hard.

    I am alone most of the time and no one seems to be my close friend. People tell me its better to have no friends than fake one but being alone hurts even more. I cry myself to sleep and tell myself to go get friends but the fact is that im just SUPER shy... it hurts.

    Having a sense of being alone has been with me

    always. I am an only child. When I was a child I had one, perhaps two friends. I didn't have sports or other interests. The solitary pastime of reading was the main thing I remember doing or riding my bicycle solo. In adolescence I had several individual friends and there were a...

    My name is Dave, I'm new to the EP community,

    and thought this would be as good a place as any to start sharing, since "I am alone" sums up my life so succinctly! I've lived by myself, in a modest apartment, for about fourteen years now; before that I lived with girlfriends who had their own places, or had roommates, but I...

    I'm surrounded by friends and family that all love me, but I feel completely alone. After ending things with the one person that I could always count on, I question if there will ever be anyone that can deal with me all of the time. My past boyfriend cheated, at least 4 times...

    for anyone to have for as long as I've felt it. I haven't felt truly happy for a long time now. Loneliness is my only company, and it's no company at all. I can't talk to my friends, family, siblings, even people on EP about how I feel. I know that, "Someone will understand...

    I pretty much am alone. I am 18 and more mature and independent than most 18 year olds I know. I grew up knowing I was a mistake, one my mother didn't want to live with, and one my father always was trying to fix. They were never married, barely even together until I came into...

    Not ideologically, nor by intelligence(Ha!

    ), or through purposeful isolation. I'm simply alone. Alone and worn out. Tired. Exhausted, really. All I want is a little rest. To close my eyes for a while, for time to freeze or to race forward without me. All I want is a little peace and quiet. Alone. Like it should be.
