I Am Sad and Lonely

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,071 People

    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...

    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...

    Im so sad all the time.

    I feel like no one loves or cares for me. I have a boyfriend but he never has time for me. Sometimes I wonder how it feels to have a genuine hug. Someone to say I love you and mean it.When I need a friend, I have no one. No one loves me. When im alone I feel like im in the dark...

    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 don't know what to do anymore.

    .. I'm at my breaking point. I've been disappointed and abandoned by my friends way to many times... I don't like where I live, it feels like nobody really wants me around, I have no one to hang out with. My boyfriend doesn't seem to want me around either... I rarely see him. I'm...

    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 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.

    It's strange because I am surrounded by a

    million people. And people say I'm funny and happy. Truth is, I'm so lonely and sad. I'm scared people will leave me and go.

    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..

    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 .

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I feel like I'm not anyone's first choice.

    Neither their favorite. Even if people tell me I'm important to them or I mean a lot to them I know there's always someone they prefer to be with. Someone they choose over me. And that hurts....A lot.
