I Am So Lonely

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,043 People

    Alone, Surrounded By People.

    Being a deeply introspective person, I try to examine and find definitive conclusions to the reasons why I feel the way I do, or why people do the things they do. There must be an answer, even if I'm not able to obtain one. I believe with enough time and patience, one can move...

    I fight loneliness with all my strength,

    but I find it so difficult to beat, even when I'm surrounded by people, my friends, mum/gran/grandad, it still hits me like a tonne of bricks. A million and one people could surround me and love me, yet still, I'm alone. How do I fight it? I wish I knew, but I try. I try to make...

    My Shadow And I

    I'm friends with my shadow, it's long tall and black, it mimics every move I make, but never answers me back. It's like another part of me, tied at the heel, trying desperately to escape, never knowing how I feel. I'm always by my shadow, it doesn't matter if there's no...

    I feel so lonely most of the time.

    like I have friends, I'm capable of socialising but I feel like I don't have anyone who really gets me, and I won't find anyone who will ever really 'get' me. like basically, the only person I have is me.

    I miss having friends.

    I miss those midnight talks in the yard or on the porch, laughing our ***** off or telling eachother horror stories. Or just whatsoever. I just miss my two bestfriends. And after everything that has happened, I still wish them all the happiness. Where ever they are.

    I am so lonely it is terrible.

    I am in this empty apartment. I feel empty and alone. I wish someone out there needed a partner or a soul mate. Someone calm and loving. Someone who is good with fragile woman. I'm sorry, but the loneliness is terrible.

    I'm really social so I'm at my happiest when I'm with other people but as soon as I'm all alone I just kind of shut down and feel less than worthless. It's really becoming a problem that I feel the need to have constant attention/companionship... and it's only getting worse. I...

    So Alone

    I never thought I would feel so lonely. The longing has become so strong and  the feeling has become so overwhelming it's depressing. It creates a sense of weakness and for me that's the worst feeling of all. It leaves such a void of emptiness and despair. I mean I'm not a...

    for a while. My husband is my best friend, but seems we are more like brother and sister than husband and wife. The sex is very boring, doesn't happen very often anymore and we don't even kiss, hold hands or snuggle. I miss the passion, and the feeling of someone wanting me. All...

    Sometimes I feel like I have no one to talk to,

    it makes me feel so alone. I sometimes feel like most of my friends don't care and there ignoring me and avoiding me. Sometimes when I really need someone to talk to...no one is there. I just feel so alone.

    People around me, the crowd of voices that doesn't see or know me, have no idea. No one knows that I feel so don't go could just turn into thin air in a moment. No one knows I feel so sad I could weep for days.
