    I am 24 years old. About 3 months ago I buried

    the last of my family. My parents have been gone for years and now the grandparents that acted in their place are gone too. Just before my Grandfather died the first man I had ever loved and showed me happiness left me. Now I feel as though I am in a hole and can't get out and...

    As I go to bed alone

    and broken again, I wonder how did I end up like this? Why did I ignore all the red flags? How come it took me 7 yrs to know I deserve better? 7 yrs of living in a fantasy land. 7 yrs of lies, built up walls, and misleading. Then I think of my 4 yr old son. Then I remember how...

    I lost my wife of 20 years at the age of 43 to

    breast cancer. My two daughters where 14 and 16 at the time. This was four years ago now. We had a great marriage, she was my best friend, my soulmate. I feel so alone now, both of my girls are off to college. They are totally against me spending any time with a woman. I just...

    You know, I've always written my feelings

    through journalling and poetry. Lately I have shared some of my poems on my blog. Some people I know from high school liked these status. But I keep wondering why can't people read in between the lines?

    I Were!!!

    This doesn't apply to me much anymore. It's hard to be lonely with so many people to chat with on here now. =p But yes... 99% of my depression in the past was due to isolation and loneliness. It was due to my social anxiety, or the end result of it. I didn't have any friends...

    Thinking you've made a connection with someone

    and become close friends, then to all of a sudden have them completely ignore you without reason is a horrible thing. When you're already insecure it makes you over analyse absolutely everything you do and causes a severe lack of confidence. That happened to me lately and I...

    and feel so incredibly alone. I saw an old friend and it reminded me of when my life felt whole..now I feel like I'm just waiting for the next cloud to rain on my parade and/ or the next fire to put out...instead of just living in the moment. Sure I have that one old friend, and...

    For most of my life I’ve been lonely,

    and today I can finally admit to myself why. It’s not because no one loves me. I know I am surrounded by love: I have family and friends who love me for who I am, and who would be there for me in a heartbeat, if I needed company and support. I know it’s a lot more than what...

    I am depressed and the biggest reason is

    that I am a 28-year-old virgin. I look attractive and am fairly intelligent. However, my introverted nature and lack of women in my environment (college, work) in past created this problem. I forced myself to attend lot's of extroverted environment: I did sales, joined MBA, did...

    LONELINESS "Let me tell you this:

    Late at night, the clock is done.

    T'will be hours, fore I see the sun. The demons come, into my mind. They work their evil, in due time. I battle them each, and every night. Soon I fear, I will loose the fight. Alone I fear, I must endure. Until I find, someone who's pure. Someone to save me, from my fate. Of...

    Loneliness is like sinking into a dark hole,

    introverting into yourself and hiding within your own head. The irony is that often we feel lonely when surrounded by people- and worst of all is that people often don't notice. The volume of people around you cannot quell that feeling of a lack of belonging; having no real...

    Ever wondered what it's like to have no friends?

    It is very lonely and crushing. You begin to obsess about the fact that you have no friends and wonder why. You turn your harshest critical eye inward and self-examine and magnify all flaws, searching for a possible answer. Since you obsess about it so much, you begin to feel...

    The lies, cheating & sneaking around all

    brought to the surface. The devastation seemed too much, but then I found myself relieved. Relieved from my constant internal denial of him. To know I wasn't crazy after all, just naive, will release all the hurt & bring on the excitement.
