    You have to reverse it.

    If you're unable to meet others in person, go online. Don't get too involved or expect too much. It's baby steps. Human beings are naturally social, so your hurt is understandable. Not everyone you meet is going to be the same. We are individuals with our own lives and concerns...

    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...

    I feel that I'm lonely

    even though I'm not. Every time I get some time to myself I just feel really lonely. I don't know what it is. I jus want it gone. It's like I always have to have someone there with me, even if it is on the internet of in real life.

    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...

    Some birds are not meant to be caged,

    that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place...

    Extremely depressed. Lonely.

    No love. No sex. No emotions. Feeling hopeless, sad, depressed, miserable. Just want to die.

    Everything just feels empty right now.

    It feels more and more like people don't want anything more to do with me, especially since they have been progressively drifting further and further from me. I have no idea what to do. I just want to die

    I know, I shouldn't let it get to me.

    ...but when it's Valentines Day, and I'm very romantic, and all I have is silence as my companion....then I get depressed. Which hurts my chances with anyone. Which makes me more lonely. And more depressed. And I'll stop being outgoing. :( :c

    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...
