    The Lonely Road That I Walk Is Paved With Sorrow.

    My whole entire life I have been an extremely shy person who has trouble making friends. It has gotten to a point where I don't have any outside the internet anymore, I moved away from my old friends many years ago and have failed to make a single one. I've had instances where I...

    I'm feeling quite lonely today.

    It's not an unusual feeling for me, but today it just feels so much more intense. I once told someone about when I feel like this and their response was to go get a prostitute. They obviously didn't get that it is much more than just a physical loneliness.

    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...

    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 try to make friends,

    but low self esteem and social anxiety doesn't make it easy for me to go up and introduce myself and if that happens, I can't trust myself to text them. When I do get friends, I don't have any that would text me back (would "forget" to). When I'm around people, I don't feel...

    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...

    Hi everyone. I used to be depressed

    because I felt like I was alone, but not anymore. I used to feel pressure in high school that I needed to cling on to someone, whether it be a friend or a significant other. If you were seen walking alone to class, it would be the worst feeling in the world. As an introvert, I...
