    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.

    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...

    It all feels so far away. My husband stares at his phone more than he does at me and no one ever sends me texts. What is my life right now? It's so hollow and meaningless. At night I wake and see a shadowy figure that reaches out and touches my husband's foot, he pulls away and...

    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..

    And it's getting worse.

    I haven't had a close friend for years. I spend more and more time just by myself. All I've got is studying and daydreaming. More books to read, more movies to watch, more and more work to do..over and over again..just to kill the time. I'm broken.
