I Am Lonely

Feeling alone, lonely or isolated? Welcome to a support group of people that truly understand. 90,279 People

    Whenever I realize that my friends don't really

    care, I become cold and detached. I will tell myself that being cold and intimidating will form barriers around me so that I won't be hurt, even though I long for my friends' affection. I have many flaws; i am selfish, an egoist, and want power and glory. But all of those traits...

    Is anyone else familiar with

    that feeling of being alone in your soul, even if technically you have a lot of friends and even a girlfriend? When you absently-minded skim through your phone's contact list and none of the names you see represent a person that 'gets' you? Being alone isn't so bad, but this...

    I should not feel alone.

    . I have friends, family and a husband. I just don't feel like I can talk to any of them. I have so much sadness, anger and turmoil inside of me, but no one who I can share it with. I constantly think about the past and the things that have brought these feelings to life.

    Seems like I'm losing more

    and more friends everyday.. I'm so use to constantly having my phone go off.. Constantly someone talking to me. Now it's so different, less and less texts a day, less notifications, less friends, less everything. Except one thing, Loneliness. Tons of that to go around..

    I've always been lonely

    since I'm a child. No brothers or sisters, parents divorced. Sometimes I feel I have to hear something, anything but silence. So I just turn on the TV, I'm not watching it, it just gives me the illusion that I'm less alone. I need to hear some "life" around me.

    I'm so incredibly lonely.

    It's gotten to the point where I can not stand the thought of being left alone anymore, most of the time I enjoy being by myself but lately it's gotten harder on me. I make my poor family members hang out with me because I have no friends. I cry myself to sleep knowing that no...

    Soul Destroying

    Lonliness is a feeling of emptiness, an alone feeling of helplessness. No one to give you tenderness, in wanton times of neediness.

    listening to music, eating alone, just chilling out. But I realize I don't like being lonely... people with their kids, boyfriends, and friends makes me miss being around people.

    Loneliness Is ...

    Loneliness is like a void, a black pit of despair filled with heartache and longing. Loneliness is a gateway to temptation, it's doors forever guarded by a pair of desires. The desire to be noticed and the desire to be needed. Loneliness is standing in a crowded room, a mind...

    Never tell someone you’re lonely. If someone asks you how you’re feeling and you say fine, although a bit lonely, be prepared to have them either laugh at you, berate you, ignore you or turn away. Why is being lonely so wrong? I’m very lonely and frankly, I hate it. I...
