    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...

    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...

    Secrets And Lies

    I have so many secrets, so many lies hiding behind my eyes piled up so high so that they touch the sky if they weren't compressed in upon my chest so far in, which no one could see unless they come to me and plea but that matters not as there isn't so much as a thought about all...

    The man I love obviously doesn't love me back.

    I'm sad hurt and lonely. I don't trust anyone. To him I'm just an option. I really like him. It's either be with him or continue to be lonely for several years. Either way it doesn't matter which one I choose, I lose either way

    People on FB posting

    that they are bored. Everyone knows that when I am not at work I am alone. I message them and get one word answers. Guess I am too boring to talk to. I wish I knew how to be interesting. Maybe then I would have a friend...or something.

    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...

    If you are suicidal, please get help

    No one ever wants talk to me

    and no one ever cares about me or how I'm feeling. I'm always pre-judged by people I don't know, or judged by people I DO know, and it's always some type of negative judgement. Aside from the several amounts of heartbreak wounds I've sustained that's contributed to my...

    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...

    It just makes me want to fall a sleep forever.

    I didn't think it would come to this point, and how people in the past just made up things. I dont know whats wrong anymore. I thought I could just settle for the loneliness, but its the other way around. Nothing is going planned.

    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...
