    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...

    Some people aren't content with a large group

    of friends supporting them. Some people only need one person to accept them. I am one of those people who feel alone in a room crowded with people. All of them hurrying along with their life while you stand among them. And they swirl around you like you're a rock in the river...

    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...

     I really have not one person i can trust without being judged or being controlled because i am in a vunerable position. The lonliness is killing me slowly, from head to toe.

    I have a girlfriend... but I am lonely. She doesn't trust me and she says she loves me, but I'm afraid it is superficial. I am afraid that our relationship is in trouble. I'm afraid because it has been so long and never once have I felt loved. I'm so very lonely and I think it is...

    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...

    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.

    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
