    If I've learned anything from my experience

    here on earth, it's that you can't put all your hope and trust in one person. They will always, ALWAYS let you down at some point. Because they, like you, are only human. If you put someone up on a pedestal, you are setting yourself and them up for failure. I thought I knew what...

    It's funny how things change

    when stress is present. Everytime money or career becomes a source of distress, everything else falls apart to make way for the torrent of obsessive determination. People don't matter in this state and being the closest person makes my pain worse than anyone else. I have to deal...

    Who Are All These People...

    I surround myself with people. I've never met a stranger. I could carry on a conversation with a fence post if it would talk back. I go out with friends. I date, I hang out with my large family. Yet I feel so very alone at times.

    It Has.........

    Always been my belief that loneliness is something within. A state of mind, if you will allow me to call it such.  To me, that feeling is what happens when one is left alone with their thoughts. That odd feeling you get when you are, in a sense, living in your head. ...

    Sometimes I wonder how can I feel this way.

    I am surrounded every day with people at work, then when I come home I have such a great loving family. Yet and still I feel lonely a lot of the time. I crave adult conversations. I want so badly to have meaningful connections with like-minded people.

    I'm kind of a loner; it is rare

    that I actually go out and hang out with friends anymore. Not so much because I don't want to, but because I'm never really invited to go anywhere. If I am, I don't think they are serious about it and therefore I don't take it seriously. I just end up being silent among everyone...

    so judgmental and vapid. Girls and their gossip. I've been the perennial black sheep since I was able to socialise. And me? WellI have a good heart but an ugly, dumpy exterior. So confidence is low. Ah well. Guess I was always meant to be solitary.

    Everyday when I go to work

    or even just go outside I feel like there is a wall between us. When I look on their side I see light, laughter and the enjoyment of life. When I look on my side all I see is darkness and a hole of emptiness that can never be filled.
