    Soul Destroying

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

    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...

    Ultimate Denial And Absolute Truth

    I asked my only friend to hang out with me.

    She said maybe. If you do feel like hanging out with someone, can you please hang out with me. She told me if she felt like hanging out with someone she said she would hangout me. I went to bed happily thinking that I would get to be with someone. The next day I texted her...

    So, another year is about to be gone,

    and just like every single one before, I have absolutely nothing to show for it. I sit here on Christmas Eve like always, with no one but my cat, the TV, the computer, and a bottle of Dr. Pepper. My family doesn't even care about me. If I call any of them, they won't answer...

    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...

    December 24. Getting Through the Holidays.

    For some, the sights, signs, and smells of the holidays bring joy and a warm feeling. But, while others are joyously diving into the season, some of us are dipping into conflict, guilt, and a sense of loss. We read articles on how to enjoy the holidays, we read about the...

    My husband and I are not getting along.

    Apparently I ask for too much and he's never wrong. Is it wrong to want him to spend time with me, talk to me or just pay attention. We both work full time, have 3 kids, 2 live at home and yet, when he is home, he's on his phone texting, talking or searching the web. Or, he...

    I'm not afraid of being alone anymore.

    I've accepted that it's very likely I will live the rest of my life like a hermit. But I'm tired of trivial banter as my only source of social interaction, and it would be so nice to have a real heart-to-heart conversation for once. Just one would do me well for a long time. But...

    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...

    I find myself yearning more and more for the company of another person. Not in strictly a romantic way, nor strictly platonic. Quite simply, I find myself craving human closeness. However, I view these wanting as more of a hope than a dream. You see, I have Aspergers, Social...
