    I feel alone in this world.

    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...

    I have no one... I have nothing.

    I can't turn to anyone. I have no support. I have isolated myself... Yet again. I need to make some friends, but I can't, not right now. I am all alone.

    I have lost a lot of friends within the past

    two years, including one I was really close to. I suffer from depression, which causing me to be a bit of a downer at times. I'm also an introvert, meaning I prefer time alone or one-on-one, rather than a big party. I also have anger issues, which makes it difficult to "keep my...

    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...

    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 All Alone Now

    About 3 months ago I was in an auto accident. My husband was driving and a drunk ran a red light and hit our car on the drivers side. My husband and 6 month old daughter were killed and I was severely injured. I spent a month in the hospital recovering. I couldn't stand to live...

    I hate being alone, because I get more depressed, and lonely. I do have a cat but I still feel alone, with no one to share a hug, or go for walks with, or just talk/ I don't know how to communicate with some people, maybe it is because after my fiance' died, I lost touch on...

    Maybe everything. I feel I'm not normal. I never talked to anyone about my feelings. When I wanna cry, I do so without anyone seeing or noticing it. Everyone thinks I'm happy because I always manage a smile no matter what. People think I'm care free, but what they don't know is...

    Don't know what happened.

    I had many friends three- four years ago, and they all slipped away. All turned on me. Now I'm left with no one. I stay in my room and listen to my music and wonder what I did wrong.

    You know how they say everyone has someone

    waiting for them. Well, I think I was created with the intention of being alone. I will start embracing this fully. No matter how nice or how much I like someone, I won't date or get married. In the end I am reminded that I was truly created to be alone.
