I Am Lonely

Feeling alone, lonely or isolated? Welcome to a support group of people that truly understand. 96,435 People

    I used to have a lot of friends in high school.

    Then once I graduated. I focused on college and now on my career, while others partied, got married, or had children. Now at 24, and out of school I feel so lonely. I need friends. 4th of July is coming up and... I don't know what to do. Something as simple as having a BBQ is...

    I have nobody. I've had friends,

    but I always end up being the backup plan, the friend who's 'okay' until something better comes along, ended up losing contact with them after high school ended. Every time i'm in a group situation, it feels like i'm being fed to the wolves. I act like i'm completely fine with...

    I just feel like an useless person.

    I can't socialize well in the community. I keep isolating myself, I have no true friends. Im so heartbroken and lonely..to the point I cry every night and even when I wake up..

    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.

    Will It Ever Cease???

    This lonliness....sometimes, I SWEAR I'm dying from the inside out.  I heard about this experiment that was conducted once, in Germany.  They took a bunch of orphaned babies and split them into two groups.  To the first group, they gave the normal amount of...

    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.

    I had friends, family

    and girl who all loved me and now it's all fallen apart. My life is like a canvas that someone ripped apart into tiny insignificant pieces. Now, I call old friends, no one answers. I try to talk my family, they tell me to leave them alone and I won't even mention that B*tch who...

    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.

    I guess it is lonely at the top; I am not

    trying to sound pretentious or whatever, but that is how people see me. I am a college student, and I am most excellent grade - wise, and everyone considers me to be somewhat of a genius. But it makes me a bit lonely at times. I guess people assume that I can always handle...

    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...

    I feel so alone. I barely have anyone to talk to

    and it's all my fault. Due to my insecurities, I find it difficult to seem happy (even if I am genuinely happy), and a face that is almost always serious seems to make people go away, even if I really want to make friends. Not only that, but I have not developed my social skills...

    I feel so alone today.

    Physically, of course, but more than that. I feel emotionally alone. Maybe it's just my depression, I do have friends and family I can talk to, but I still feel so alone.

    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...

    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...
