    I'm officially lonely.

    2 years into high school and I'm still lonely .The only 4 people I know in the entire school just see me as their last choice . 2 of my "friends" definitely don't see me as their first choice. They are friends with literally everyone and only need me if one of their more...

    I search for the words.

    Restless. As if you haven't really met yourself yet. As is you'd passed yourself once in the fog, and your heart leapt ! There I Am! I've been missing that piece!' But it happens too fast, and then that part of you disappears into the fog again. And you spend the rest of your...

    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...

    September 20. Spontaneity.

    In recovery, we're learning to let ourselves go! We're learning to be spontaneous. Spontaneity may frighten some of us. We may be afraid of the loss of control involved with spontaneity. We may still be operating under the codependent rules that prohibit spontaneity: be good...

    Does the loneliness ever go away?

    I was searching for a person to be my landing *****, my home away from home. I thought that person could be a friend or a boyfriend, but now I'm starting to think that wish is unrealistic. Maybe it's because of the circumstances of my current relationship (long-distance) that...

    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...

    no one is innocent, in a sense the instant, is all intrinsic instinct, go on, give it all, we all, give it all, because we can't take back any of it, we persist until we give in and cease to exist, all of this is a cycle, not a circle but a spiral, so your battle for survival...

    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...

    I have never been a very social person.

    A few years back I had a social life. Mostly with people that I worked with. It took my 11 years to develop those relationships. When I left that job only 2 or 3 people kept in touch. So sad the way we forget about people. I do the same maybe intentionally in my situation. I...

    September 19. Apologies.

    Sometimes, we act in a manner with which we are less than comfortable. That's human. That's why we have the words: "I'm sorry." They heal and bridge the gap. But we don't have to say, "I'm sorry" if we didn't do anything wrong. A sense of shame can keep us apologizing for...

    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...
