    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...

    How is it that I can be surrounded by people,

    but still be lonely? :/ Oh yeah, that's right. None of my "friends" even talk to me. :/ They're always busy, or they just don't have time for me.

    How can you feel so alone in this world?

    If just one person would love me for me and treat me with respect my life would be complete. That only happens in my dreams. I don't even know how once such a happy bubbly girl ended up in this sad miserable situation that she feels like she can't escape. She probably could, I...

    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...

    Most people can't handle me

    when I try to express my sorrow because I need to share it but people just reject it. I am too sad to deal with. Sad dark, as I am known. The void between me and the rest of everything else is increasing with every passing moment. WHY WON'T YOU JUST SEE ME?!? Unaided by...

    I lost my Dad four years ago today.

    I'm still not over it. I don't want to talk about. I understand it all. He was my best friend, advisor and encourager. So lost not having that any longer. Cherish those whom cherish you.

    I feel profoundly lonely

    and it's because I choose to isolate myself in my own sadness. I don't need anyone to tell me that I am depressive, I am suffering because I am disappointed by all that I ever loved. I need help but I don't know how to get it.

    Because love fails so much,

    How Do You Define Loneliness?

    What is the meaning of love? Why do we smile when we are dying inside? Why is it so hard when someone special to you ignores you and harder when you pretend you don't care? Why do we make someone our priority when we are but an option to them? Which is worse, being alone in the...
