I Am Lonely

Feeling alone, lonely or isolated? Welcome to a support group of people that truly understand. 96,404 People

    Hate to say it but I am.

    For a brief period of time I had the experience of actually seeing someone's face light up when they saw me. That is worth more than anything else you can have in life as I've now learned.

    does anyone else think it's really sad

    that some of us have to turn to this site to let out feelings out and talk to others we don't know? Just because no one really cares about you and you don't have friends? we live in a world full of 7 billion people and can't even turn to one person, it's terrible...everyone...

    Soul Destroying

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

    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...

    I've found myself in a foreign country far away

    from home and most of the people I know, with not much comforting familiarity to speak of. I should be grateful to be here- I am- but there are times when it feels like a prison. On the brighter side, it's made me appreciate my home more, and it's gotten me out doing things. My...

    who are just like you. They’re lonely. They’re missing somebody. They’re in love with someone they probably shouldn’t be in love with. They have secrets you wouldn’t believe. They wish and they dream and they hope, and they look out the window whenever they’re in the...

    Why are men so superficial

    and shallow? The models on your playboy magazines, in movies, the ideal of slim and perky; they are not a true reflection of women. Having that ideal is destroying to those of us who have no hope of living up to that ideal. Some of us have lived life and it shows on our body...

    This is true. I don't go out much.

    I have a small group of friends that consists of about 4 people. I'm usually in my room all day until someone hits me up. Life is such a drag.

    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...

    I can feel myself coming undone

    because I never have anyone to lean on. I'm so terribly sick of suffering alone. Whenever I feel like I've finally found a place where I belong, shortly thereafter, I never feel welcome anymore. Everyone turns their back on me eventually. I'm unsure what's wrong with me and why...

    the more days go by, the more lonelier I get.

    lost my interest to do anything. in my mind I want to do so many things but I physically can't be bothered. slowly losing my interest to talk to people. I don't know what to do with myself anymore apart from wanting to live off the grid away from the mainstream.
