    Everything just feels empty right now.

    It feels more and more like people don't want anything more to do with me, especially since they have been progressively drifting further and further from me. I have no idea what to do. I just want to die

    False Hope

    I am turning 16 in a month, and I've been struggling with depression for a long time. I am an athlete, involved in art, and in advanced classes (doing pretty well, but still feel stupid compared to everyone else). I don't have family issues, but we're kinda tight on money, and I...

    Will Things Ever Change?

    When I look in the mirror I see a beautiful, attractive young woman that possesses the qualities that most men say that they want, but yet I'm single. Most of my experiences with men have been dysfunctional, from the time I was fourteen years old. I have given in relationships...

    No one loves me. No one likes me.

    I have no friends who are girls that I can call sisters like everybody else at school. I can't even call anyone a friend. I have no "squad" Nothing. I'm nothing. I have nothing. All because I'm me.

    The worse thing about being depressed

    and lonely is not knowing that no one cares about you but knowing that no one will try to care.

    What I Hate Most About It

    What I hate most about it is that if I ask for help, if I let someone find out, then they'll feel pressured or guilt tripped into spending time with me. I don't want to make anyone to feel like that. I really don't want to pressure anyone into keeping me company, I just want...

    I am a 32 year old woman.

    I have been single for 7 years. I have only had one "serious" boyfriend and since then all I have experienced is heartbreak. Disastrous dates, flings, no real connection with any one. I live in a huge city where I technically should be able to find someone. I get so depressed...

    I feel that I'm lonely

    even though I'm not. Every time I get some time to myself I just feel really lonely. I don't know what it is. I jus want it gone. It's like I always have to have someone there with me, even if it is on the internet of in real life.

    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...

    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...

    Some birds are not meant to be caged,

    that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place...
