    Please Tell Me What You Think.

    Ok, I have admitted that I was in the wrong and I got what I deserved when my boyfriend broke up with me. I have been doing my best to get on with my life and not justify my actions. Especially when my friends tell me that they are sure that I wasn't the only one out there...

    Back and Forth...

    ...the see-saw sways. I get used to the idea of being alone, convincing myself I am better off that way. Then something like this hits and I would just like to throw myself in his arms and be comforted. Though to be honest I don't know that he would be any comfort. This is a time...

    A Good Friend Gave Me Some Perspective.

    I was talking to a friend of mine a little bit ago about the whole situation. Unloading on him my guilt and regret over my actions. He became very indignant as I went on. He began to rant about my needs within the relationship. Reminding me of how many times Jake rejected me and...

    A Combination Is What Is The Worst

    The worst pain imaginable is dealing with loneliness and heart break. I had a friend and now my friend is not talking to me. He doesn't care. He acted like he did in the beginning, but now he acts like he could care less. I have no one to talk about this. It hurts so bad. I am so...

    A Soap Opera If I Ever Heard of One

    So lots of things have happened. Jake came over in the middle of the night and I had it out with him about him cheating. He swears up and down that he didn't, but he couldn't account for the incubation period. Things calmed down or so I thought and then he hit me with a bombshell...

    Another Day Of Loneliness

    Today, I was sick. No one to take care of me. No one to hold my hair back as my toes came out with my teeth. I hate days like this, because it makes me long for days past, when there was someone there, someone I could call and even if they couldn't come over they would at least...

    Which Pain Is Worse, Loneliness Or Heartbreak?

    I have always said that I could handle physical pain a lot better than emotional. Today I come here to unburden my heart and find that my experiences include writing about the pain of loneliness. Which makes me wonder which is worse, the pain of being alone and unloved or having...

    The Story Continues

    Well Jake and I decided to continue in our current relationship as is, until I move at the end of August. It has been a roller coaster ride. One day he is cold and distant; the next he is loving and sweet. I have been a bit aloof myself at times, especially when he is being...

    I feel loneliness is an emotion more than a state of being. Then more I try and fight being lonely the more I see it's not as all encompassing as I once thought.
