    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 Miss My Poor Little Kitty Cat!

    I had a cat aswell as my chihuahua puppy, when I lived on my old house, before I recently moved here 5months ago. We brought the puppy with us as he can stay indoors and can be walked with a lead (obviously) but we could not take the cat, as she would have been too use to living...

    I feel so alone tbh .

    -. I really just want someone to hold me and tell me everything will be okay even if it won't. I need someone to be there for me, because I can't do this on my own.

    I feel like dying right now.

    .. Honestly, I feel as though I am alone all the time and when I confront the situation, it turns out I am. What am I doing wrong? Why do people avoid me? I act happy and help people in their situations, so why do they not return the favour...

    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've never been so close to it before.

    I feel so detached from everyone like a barrier is keeping me separate from others. It's nice to see people genuinely become happy from my presence yet for some reason it's like I don't exist beyond that. Simply a fragment of their memory, I try to become more than that, a...

    I just wish there was someone

    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...

    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.

    I wish I could describe the kind of hurt I feel.

    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...

    Sometimes I think I was meant to be alone.

    I caused so much stress within my last friendship, it's no wonder that he didn't want to be friends anymore. Sometimes I just have no chill. I think I'm so used to being alone that when I do make a new friend I just don't know how to act. I become so attached (more to the...

    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.
