    It'd be nice to feel

    as though someone thinks about me or shows care for me. I do it for others and it's nice to see these people become happy from my help and now I wonder if anyone would ever do that for me. I'm simply left with an empty, longing feeling within me. A sudden feeling of betrayal and...

    My Friends Have Left Me

    Yesterday Becky (an 8 year old) and I were talking about our birthdays and she was talking about her friends. "Tell me about your friends" she said. "I don't have any" I replied. She didn't believe me at first but she managed to ask, "None?" I said "I don't have any true friends...

    Failed At Friendship Once Again

    Recently someone really tried hard to be my friend. No romance, just friendship. I was really wary at first, because I didn't believe her. She kept at it and eventually I gave in. We hung out a few times and really had a lot of fun. No tense moments, just lots of laughing...

    I'm Trying and Failing At the Same Time

    Hey Guys, Today was not a good day for me at all. Tomorrow I will have been seeing a guy I like for a month. We met via online and we talked and connected I think. He of course has some faults but I am willing to accept them and try to be supportive and express true feelings...

    I'm very lonely! I have nobody to talk to.

    Nobody understands me. My parents don't love me. I have no friends. I literally have zero friends. I have four siblings but they don't talk to me. They won't even be in the same room as me. I feel so alone that I want to kill myself. The only person who loves me and cares about...

    What makes me worthy of people's attention?

    I'm worthless. Now I'm just tired. Nobody knows the consequences of daily abusive and aggressive behaviour. I get mocked because of my voice everyday and now I've just stopped speaking. I get told I'm annoying and prong to be around so I stay in my room. I go to school and I get...

    I'm depressed, I've come to terms with that.

    I never open up to anyone and don't truly trust anyone and I know that. I have no decent friends and I've come to terms with that as well. I just want to know why I'm like this. Why am I so lonely all the time? Why does no one like me? Why do I feel so distant from everyone...

    Feel Ashamed Of This......

    Ever since I lost all my friends just over a year ago, I have been extremely lonely. Allow me to have a rant but I am sick of the usual platitudes of which "join a club" seems to be a frequent one. I know people mean well but until they have been in my position you can see that...

    I've lost my reaction to things,

    pain doesn't even bother me too much. I can hardly feel anything it's like I'm numb. It's odd, I can describe it as though when you stop, you feel a grip around you, closing you in. I'm not exaggerating. I've lost my reactions to negativity now. My mum made fun of my voice again...

    Sometimes, i lay down at night.

    In my dark, cold room. & i think about the men i've had & how they tore me in half. How everyone just wants my body, Not me. & i lay there, alone, crying, wishing i wasn't alone at that very moment

    that would be there for me personally and face-to-face. I love the support I get on here but it just sometimes feels dishonest and unnatural. When up front with someone they don't have time to think but say their belief. I haven't gone out with my friends in so long it's...

    Nobody to turn to, nobody to rely on anymore.

    I thank you all for helping me however, conversations on the Internet just don't feel realistic. To be happy. I must wait it through. I must wait for that person who treats me with respect and listens to me. They don't have to be perfect, just listen and understand me. Yet...

    It sucks. It hurts. It gets me depressed.

    It's really because I don't go out. I don't go out because I have no money. I have no money because I don't work. I don't work because I have health issues. I have health issues because I grew up in a twisted way where culture allowed bad things to happen to me. I should've been...

    Being alone is sitting in a room full of people.

    Talking, being superficial. But being ALONE on the inside. No one can get inside the solitude you've created. No one will break your walls.

    Maybe it's my fault. Maybe I've shut so many people out for fear of being judged. Or, maybe, I'm seriously kidding myself and I don't deserve anyone's time or friendship; I can't quite decide which it is though. I go to bes wishing someone was next to me. I wake up wondering...

    My mum keeps complaining about things

    and then constantly asking me to repeat my sentences because she wasn't listening. She then says it's not her fault page can't hear us because our voices are too deep. You listening more is a factor you can alter while me having a deep voice is something I can't.
