I Am Incredibly Lonely

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 209 People

    How Did I Get To This Point?

    I haven't been on a date in 3 years. 3 years. I'm in my early 20's--life should be at my fingertips, but everything is just slipping through them instead. I'm not returning to school to finish my degree, my home life...my goodness, my parents hate each other; my sister is 3...

    Feeling Lost...

    It's not healthy to have zero friends, which is exactly what I have. I use to visit family all the time and we'd all hang out together. I am talking about grandmothers and cousins and aunts and uncles....now that never happens except Christmas... I had friends who I could talk...

    I hate being so alone.

    There could be people in the same room as me, but I'm still lonely :( feels like I have no one, especially no one caring in my life. Everyone's so selfish.

    My Own World, No One Is Inside It But Me.

    I must be truly mad. I am so incredibly alone, but I don't try to meet anyone. I am so painfully seperated from the world around me, but I don't try to belong. I cry every day, feeling feelings of crushing despair, and occasionally, psycotic rage. My mother thinks I am Bi...

    I really hate being alone at school

    and at home. At school, my "friends" exclude me in any way possible and rub it in my face that I wasn't invited to anything over the weekend. At home, I am tortured with the thought of my friends having so much fun without me. I try to do stuff on my own, but my parents always...

    Just feeling amazingly sad and lonely right now.... I've had these feelings, an inevitable sadness, for a long time since I began to feel really depressed around junior high. And it's been years since then, but I've been sad a lot... Feelings of depression have came on and off...

    I Am Very Lonely

    And I am attending the wrong world. I very easily befriend, I used to very easily trust people. Most people abuse this. That is why I am now very lonely - I need people, and I need them for real, but I can never ever believe or trust anybody. Been...

    I feel like loneliness is consuming my insides.

    It's at the point where I can't really feel much of anything else. I want a girl to hold and kiss and just love, but it's impossible. Everyone's always too willing to say "you'll find her eventually", but nobody's ever willing to be her. It destroys me so much that I just want...

    Meh

    I am all alone, and I only have myself to blame. I alienated all of my friends, pushing them aside time after time. This is what I wanted? I am not sure why. I don't want to 'talk about it' with them but I really wish I still had the option. I would give anything to just...

    I have school friends.

    That being said, I have friends that I only ever see at school. I have a great family, that is, a family who supports me even though they don't really like me. Never had a significant other, and feels like forever since I felt like I mattered. Life seems meaningless, as...

    No Friends....

    I haven't had a friend in 9 years. A few weeks ago, a cute boy at work said I was pretty and would like to do something, but his calls and texts have ended, now he doesn't even look at me. Anywhere I go everyone is chatting, but I am never included. If I try to comment, I just...
