    People walk by me. I feel like a shadow

    or a ghost. Everyone passes through me without second thought. I never thought it would be this way in a huge city chalked full of people from all walks of life. This disgusting pit of loneliness is a sensation that almost becomes numb at this point. It happens on a regular and...

    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 used to be surrounded by friends,

    literally every day someone new wanted to hangout with me, I had a million chats open at once... somewhere it all went wrong and now I'm all alone. I have good friends but they all live so far away. Anyone else feel like this?

    Stupid...

    I know this is dumb but i cannot help feeling like i have no one around me that really cares. It's like, everyday, if i have a problem i have to just deal with it because no one will give a f*** to hear about it. No one. Not my mom or dad, because they are not around enough to...

    I have always felt alone in my life.

    I am in my mid forties now and I still feel alone. I have been married three times and divorced three times and with each time it has always felt like it has been my fault. My mother abused me when I was young, and my older brother terrorized me like you would never believe. He...

    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 am alone. I have no friends left.

    I have lost my will to endure, and I suffer. My best friend died 5 years ago. The love of my life left me and feels nothing but hate for me. I have no one to talk to. I have no one to rely on. I have no one to share my love with. I have no one to hold in my arms. I have no one...

    And This Is What I Do

    I can see the tallest mountain in the state from my front door. It calls my name and I cannot resist. I select a few cigars from my humidor. My two dachshunds and I get in the car and leisurely drive the short distance to the top. I park in the observation point lot. We get out...

    The Awakening

    I feel so isolated from society.

    I almost feel like I need a support group, but nah, I need somebody who genuinely cares about me. I need somebody to say, "Hey, I see you're going through something, and I want to be there for you,". I need a deep, long lasting relationship.

    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...

    When you change and move alone,

    you are leaving all comforts, all conveniences, all that society can give. And when society gives something to you, it also takes something from you: your liberty, your soul.
