    I'm starting to hate him again.

    video games is all he wants to do. we don't even have sex anymore. but he doesn't do anything to turn me on so we just won't do it. I'll probably forget about him in college anyway

    I´m feeling very depressed

    because I´m lonely already my whole life. I wish so much to have a person where I can share the lucky moments in my life and the bad ones, too. But there´s nobody to share my feelings. I´m very depressed.

    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...

    Sigh..what's the point.

    Highschool friends and my whole family would abandon me if they knew I was an atheist, so I keep them out of my head. But there isn't else inside. I only have one friend who's on here and miles away from where I am. But I still doubt we're real friends, even though she clearly...

    I'm a quiet person but it wasn't hard

    for me to make friends when I was younger. I was friendly & approachable. But as I lost friends after 5th grade. They slowly disappeared after each grade. My freshman year I learned the "friends" I had left were using me because I got good grades in all my classes. They found...

    that I'm going to die alone. It's so hard to find someone that will love me. I just want to fall in love and get married and have a real family someday. It seems like the guys I really like don't want anything to do with me. But all the guys that aren't my type or I don't find...

    10 year running or so.

    .. The one thing that made it better was to run my motorcycle at red line in the countryside, adrenaline rush, things flying by, not knowing if you'll live the next 30 seconds. Now what?

    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...

    why I don't have friends. But I remember now. Because no one gives a **** about me or anyone or anything other than themselves. I'm just a stepping stone. Someone to use. Someone to fill a void. Someone to wring dry. I'm so sick of opening up. I'm so scared to do it again and...

    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...

    I'm sick of being depressed. I am sick of not getting what I want...what I truly need. The need to feel loved. The need of not walking on egg shells my whole life.
