    Infinite Sadness

    I´m sad and lonely because I have no friends but my cats. I´m sad and lonely because I´m stupid and clumsy and an unacheever.

    I wish I had someone I could call my friend.

    And some days (like today) I want to die so badly.

    I guess things are going along okay

    but I just feel so sad and alone. Maybe just residual stuff from the emptiness my cousin left after he supposedly jumped off that bridge and was never found. I think about him every day at least once an hour. I miss him all the time. It's horrible to lose him. I thought I would...

    The truth is, It's not

    that Im anti social. I WOULD LOVE TO make connections with people, but Im always getting beaten up by my insecurities. So I sometimes try to avoid talking to people because Im afraid of rejection.

    Today, I told my husband

    that I'm finally too tired to keep fighting for a relationship that doesn't exist. Now he's sleeping on the couch and ignoring me. I know it's what's best for me but it still makes me sad. I wish things could be different but wishing doesn't make a person love you. I'm going to...

    My bestfriend is getting really close to some

    guys ans I am afraid he will just abandon me. I have barely any friends other than him. He is sometimes ignoring me. But a lot of the times I feel like we are bffs. I am afraid that if he leaves me, I will be all alone. My mom is almost never home. I only see my dad in the...

    How Do You Define Loneliness?

    If you asked anyone how they could tell if somebody is lonely they would probably respond by saying that its somebody who lives alone who does not get out much and who finds it hard to fit in. Well I am lonely I have got friends but I'm finding more and more lately that it does...

    I feel like I have no one.

    Working doesn't make me feel better. Being alone doesn't make me feel better. I'm praying and I'm praying and listening to Christian music.. but I just.. can't help but still feel incredibly sad. No friends. No love. No happiness. No nothing.. I hate being so sad..

    Feelin' Like Milton..

    I'm starting to feel like how it must feel to be Milton on Office Space. You know, the crazy guy on there that no one listens to, that's overprotective of his stapler and rubber binder ball? That's how I've been feeling lately. My mother will call me.. she'll ask how I'm doing...

    I've been home with my family

    for nearly 3 months and I noticed that for the past 3 months, I've been mad or unhappy for almost everyday. I feel like my family have no patience for each other and they tend to look for each other mistake than solving the problem.

    I found this website

    when I googled "I miss the old me", because that's just how I feel. I used to know what I wanted for life and never gave up on things I really wanted. I wasn't afraid of being ridiculous even though I was. The saddest part is that I remember of that time with nostalgia, but...

    Is There Anyone Out There?

    I have often thought about this. Why can it be so easy for others and so hard for me? What is normal? Being in your 40s and never had a girlfriend and wanting to connect with someone very much,is this normal? There is longing for love and affection,which never comes. What is...

    It's Halloween and I have no plans,

    while I see everyone out having a good time. This guy asked me to hang out tonight but I'm pretty sure he's blowing me off, so that makes me feel even worse. I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up in the first place. I hate weekends in general but especially holidays because it...

    I am always alone. Even with people around me,

    I am still alone. They either don't like me, don't care, or I just push them away myself. I can't help it. It's just that I don't want them to fall with me. To know what has happened to me and know the real me. To show them what I have done to myself. When I do have people with...

    Isolated

    I can't find anyone. I haven't had a date in almost a year. I have no idea how to meet people. I have no idea how to speak to people. Things are really hard and it would be nice to find someone who would make it seem less so. I sleep wrapped up in my sheets because I don't like...

    I feel sad. It just happens randomly I guess.

    I have been diagnosed with depression though. My self esteem just plummeted. I feel as if no one likes me at school. Like I don't fit in. I have a small group of people I hang around, but I wouldn't necessarily call them friends, bc I wouldn't really tell them personal stuff. I...

    I've stopped answering your texts,

    I've stopped wanting to know anything about you, I've stopped loving you, I've stopped talking about you to my friends, I've tried to not acknowledge you when we cross paths, but somehow you are still the most important thing in my life. How can I still care after you did...

    I hate complaining but I'm sick of feeling like

    an option . I have people who say the love talking to me but rarely do or put little to no effort in , I feel like no one actually wants to talk to me . I feel used and stupid .

    I used to believe that I'm a strong person.

    That every time I screw up, there's always another round to make up for past mistakes. However, before I know it, I keep on finding myself still trapped in quicksand. I don't even know where to begin with. Everything that's just been happening to me seems like, there's nothing...
