    I learned something really frightening about

    myself this weekend: I am fundamentally unhappy. I'm missing something totally non-negotiable in my life. I need people who will be my lifelong partners/collaborators/family. I need soulmates. I need a community. I need to be 100% invested in fellow human beings who are 100...

    I always feel so alone.

    Even when I am around friends and family I often feel like an outcast and I just feel so lonely. I hate it when people ask me if I'm okay because I will always tell them that I am fine, but inside I am screaming for help, I am screaming for someone to see. But because I have...

    I Don't Know

    I feel that throughout all my life I've been used, hated, and pushed away from. It all starts from when I was finishing the second grade. After I finished the approximate amount of days and meet all the requirements the School Board saw my medical records and discovered my...

    No matter how many people I'm around,

    I'm positively alone. I can't really be myself in the real world, people really judge in the real world. I'm just a freak in real life. Everything that happens to add up be me, also happens to be the perfected recipe for a freak in our society. Quote some girls in my science...

    When Did Loneliness Become A 4-letter Word?

    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...

    Isn't It Shocking?

    Flipping through the stories on the website, I come across so many lonely people. It makes me sad, because if it were up to me, none of them would have to be alone ever again. I think all lonely people should unite and start talking or mailing each other. I'm sure the number...

    My birthday is on the 10th.

    A few months ago, I had a bunch of friends. I don't really know what happened, but I barely talk to most of them now. One of my friends is suicidal and I've helped him through it many times. I was the one that stopped him from killing himself on more than one occasion. Last...

    I know this is going to sound strange,

    but I like being lonely... When Im around people talking and smiling I don't feel like my self, like its somebody else talking (if I talk, which is weird) and I'm just watching from apart.

    I hate myself for sooo many reasons and I can't tell my "friends" anything because they'd hate me too. I'm tired of putting up with all of this alone. And I'm really ******* scared of what might happen if I stay like this.

    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...
