    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've read most of the posts

    and agree with most of it. I don't have any friends right now but I'm not really that lonely. I am older and my children are all grown with lives and families of their own. I do not do well with the shift though. I used to have a lot of friends and have stayed in touch with...

    I really don't like me

    so I totally understand why no-one else does. What I don't get is how some really obnoxious people DO always seem to be surrounded by 'friends' even though these 'friends' are always moaning about them to others?

    Ultimate Denial And Absolute Truth

    I never thought I would be one to post this story....considering I always believed myself to be alone by choice, but that was a falsified damnation that doomed me into years of denying the truth that I was lonely in my endeavors, lonely in my longing for companionship, lonely in...

    I hate myself. My family picks on me.

    Its getting hard to wake up in the mornings and put one foot infront of the other. I just want to be done with it but i would feel bad leaving my boyfriend alone. So I continue to try and fight, but I'm not sure how long I can last..

    so lonely. I started writing a book, because i felt more loved in my book then in reality. My friends doesn´t have time for me, my family doesn´t care anymore. I'm just the shell of the woman I used to be. My book makes me happy for a small amount of time, but it´s not enough...

    that I have no type of quality people in my life. Nobody who misses me when I'm gone. Nobody who makes it a point to hang out with me. Nobody who includes me in things. Nobody who wants to spend time with me. Nobody who cares about how I'm doing. The people I considered my best...

    One Person

    Sometimes, one person can give you the strength to get up in the morning. One person can put a smile on your face. One person can stop you from making the wrong decision. One person can make your life so much better. One person can stop the tears for a day. One person can give...

    Soul Destroying

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