I Am Depressed Because I'm Lonely

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 11,001 People

    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 reason why I joined EP

    because I was a little depressed, but over the time, after reading a lot of stories and exploring, I noticed that a lot of people here have worse problems than me so I felt that they needed a shoulder to cry on or just someone to accompany them throughout the difficult times of...

    I cut myself, but yesterday my best friend came

    up to me and said, " **** you. Stop trying to cut yourself and tying to suicide. If you still wanna do it, then die. You're not worth living. So just take your ridiculous ways and die. NO ONE CARES ! "

    I find myself talking to myself out loud

    because I can't remember the last actual conversation that I've had with someone. Hearing a voice, even my own, makes me not feel so alone.

    I always feel like I'm not good enough.

    Nobody wants to go out with me. Even my best friend lied to me to avoid going out with me.

    I need someone to talk to every night,

    but the problem is I don't get along with men, and I fall in love too easily with women.

    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...

    I get very sad and depressed at night

    when I'm alone in my room. It usually happens around 11pm and then continues until I can't distract myself. I get depressed because I am envious of those who can go out and adventure in the middle of the night or people that have fun with their friends and family. This has been...

    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...
