    How do you get over heartbreak,

    i.e the withdrawal from losing someone close to you, a girlfriend, a lover etc? I know it had to happen but months later and I still cannot move on and are constantly drawn back to the regret and loneliness. Proximity is a big factor i.e the opposite to out of sight, out of mind...

    Why are men so superficial

    October 30. Self Value.

    We have a real life of our own. Yes, we do. That empty feeling, that senses that everyone except us has a life - an important life, a valuable life, a better life - is a remnant from the past. It is also a self-defeating belief that is inaccurate. We are real. So is our life...

    Soul Destroying

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

    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...

    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...
