    Sadly Yes I Am Very Lonely ...

    Sadly yes I am very lonely and have never gotten anywhere with another girl. I am almost 21 and have never hugged, been on a date with, or been friends with another girl. I think it's pretty sad and people don't really care to what I have to say so it is easier to just keep to...

    I Feel Unimportant And Forgotten

    I am always ignored and talked over, but I can't figure out why. Is it because I'm so unimportant and forgettable? Should I talk louder? Is this what it's going to be like for the rest I my life? It seems the more time passes the more I'm left alone and thinking about...

    Divorced and Not Over It

    I am someone who has always kept the most painful things hidden from those I'm closest to.  I always felt it was kinder to spare them, afterall there wasn't anything they could do for me to change things. The burden of that decision has been heavy to bear. I've been...

    Hm

    For context: The closest people i have are those in my immediate family. Mom, dad, two sisters. I have it pretty good, my family (immediate only) is built upon love and not sheer responsibility to remain as a family unit. Im homeschooled, which i am very happy about. The only...

    A Vice

    Today my loneliness feels like a vice, encompassing me, hampering movement. I may be confusing it with stress and anxiety though. Those feelings are competing for attention. I think the reason I am focusing on the loneliness right now is because I think that...

    As I Feel So Ashamed.....

    I am very lonely and it hurts. I would do anything to get to go out for the day with someone but that will never happen. I would also die to go for a spa weekend somewhere but again, have no-one to go with. I hate my life at the moment, the dullness of it, the routine. All I do...

    I feel like none of my friends are really there.

    Sometimes I doubt that they really are my friends. When I reach out to them they don't help me. I'm alone and slowly losing my mind. No one is here to help me and I'm a mess.

    I lie here all alone.

    Huge bed that only sleeps one. I'm tired of filling it with temporary people to fix a long term yearning for a woman who will endure. I have made a habit of parading women through here like cattle that I don't think I can make a long term relationship last. I've trained myself...

    “A Friend Is One That Knows You As You Are, Understands Where You Have Been, Accepts What You Have Become, and Still, Gently Allows You to Grow.”

    Only recently have I come to realise how awful it is to be lonely. Not alone in the sense I have no one to talk to, but more that there is no one who I can talk to. My friends gave up on me a long time ago for many reasons and I can't say I blame them. I have done nothing of...

    I am lonely and I normally keep to myself

    because I'm scared of what people will think of me. I was a teenage mother and people look down on that...I really only interact with my daughter who is three and doesn't understand. I'm just so scared.

    I am really depressed.

    I feel very isolated from the world. I talk to my friends but I still feel distant. The guy I really like stopped talking to be and it feels like a sharp pain is in my heart. I don't think anyone will love me.

    Keepin' It Inside...

    It seems like, I've learned to face my struggles alone. I'm the type who wants to stay alone (not really want, but maybe, prefer) when I have something bothering me. I try to resolve it on my own first.. It could be draining sometimes, but I've been managing to go through it. I...

    Does Anyone Understand?

    I'm nearly 25 and for as long as I can remember, depression has hung its black cloud over me. I have a great family, however no one seems to understand what I'm going through. I cry daily, and have to drag myself out of bed in the mornings. I feel so selfish for even saying this...

    Lonely

    I have moved around so much that I don't feel that I ever got time to get close to people. I am a bit shy at first and it could take a while to get to know me. Last year, when I got into a class that I really liked and felt like I belonged into I switched again because I was...

    ...let everybody know how lonely I was, I was really desperate. Desperation and clinginess doesn't attract friends, which I learned, stubbornly. Now, I'm still lonely sometimes but mostly I choose to keep to myself. I've never liked most people and I've learned that seeking for...

    Because I feel like when I talk about my

    feelings they just don't care. It's saddening to even think that the people I care for doesn't feel the same or they didn't even care. I feel disgusted that I'm feeling this right now. It seems like I'm a child that wants someone's attention so much.

    I Used to Be a Happy Loner

    Back then, I would work and live in foreign countries (France, Korea, Philippines) for months by myself. I loved it: I'd immerse myself in the local culture, learned the local language and made local friends. People knew me as an adventurer and as a happy loner. It's now 10...
