    Sometimes I Feel It

    How do you go on living,

    what's there to live for? How do you find meaning and purpose in your life, have something or someone to live for when nobody cares and appreciates you? No one takes the time to tell you how much you mean to them. No one takes the time to be there to listen and support you...

    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...

    I'm 29 and haven't had a friend (or group of

    friends) in years. It's crazy how time has gone by and I still haven't been able to overcome this obstacle that others don't think twice about. I'm naturally an introvert, meaning that I like my alone time, but I am not, by any means, a shut-in. I like to go out and talk to...
