    But its not a bad thing,

    its easier to be away from people. People are petty,sensitive complicated. Maybe someday i'll meet someone whom I can be myself with. But until then am going to try an enjoy some quality alone time with myself.

    My life has been nothing

    but shame and disappointment. The only girl I ever had sex with without paying money was someone I loved and haven't seen in 13 years, and she was married. No one else has cared. I've learned to accept this, in spite of the fact that it's all I've wanted in life. The problem...

    All my life I have been

    so alone. I have family but I don't tell them about my depressive thoughts and emotions because it will upset and hurt them. But I am alone, with only my thoughts keeping me company. Everyday I fight the urge not to kill myself, I can't be the only one who feels this? It's...

    I spend 99.85% of my time alone.

    One day a week, I am among people.........namely, my grandson. Other than that, my life is lived in solitude...........but not the good kind.

    I Am Alone

    I keep running away from people afraid of getting hurt. It could be depression, maybe it is PTST. I don't know... I know that I'm scared.  Addition:Everything we do is about balance between the effort we put in and what we get out as a reward or pleaser. For an Extrovert person...

    Charging toward a lurid oblivion,

    Even at school today,

    I was standing all by myself. I had absolutely no one else to stand with or talk to. It was just me and my phone. No one actually cares. They care about other people. Not me, never me. Guess I gotta live with it.

    Although I have no true friends,

    I wonder when I'll stop being alone. I've been alone for years. There's an empty void that has yet to be filled. I've realized that I'm not a people person and some people are destined to be alone. People are very sketchy.

    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...

    There is a void where something

    once was. A yearning, missing piece that will never be again. The gapping hole bleeds and all I can do is hold on and wait for the bleeding to stop. I am alone and I hurt.

    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...

    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...

    The capacity to be alone is the capacity to

    love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it's not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person--without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the...

    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?

    For a moment the feeling of being special

    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...
