    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...

    The Continuos Pressure

    We see it on TV,on internet, on streets, commericals ... Everything and everybody says that it is bad to be single. The pressure is continuos. They say that we must find somebody. We must have someone by our side. I say, screw them! Sometimes it's better to be single and lonely...

    So Alone...

    I am going to be 38 soon and I feel more lonely now than ever. I never seriously thought that my fear of being alone at this age would really come to fruition. My family loves me because I am family, but they don’t truly “like” me. I have never had my mother...

    I Am So Very Alone

    My husband died last year, he was only 51 and wasn't ill.  He had a heart attack. I have since sold my home and moved closer to my daughter and her family.  They thought it would be a good idea.  Well, it's not! My daughter has pretty much nothing to do with me...

    And I Have No One To Blame But Myself.

    I don't know what's wrong with me. I can't keep a friendship because I'm just a ****** friend. I will talk to them and be there for them, but randomly I will feel like I'm being annoying and they're just friends with me out of pity. So I shut down and stop answering their texts...

    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.

    Soul Crushing Loneliness

    So lonely right now, I feel like nobody cares about me. What makes me lonelier is when people don't respond to my messages or anything on EP. I'm pathetic, I depend on the internet to take my loneliness away but I'm stupid for thinking. Maybe I should stop this fit of self...

    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.

    I am feeling really lonely.

    A feeling of isolation and being on the outside of what normal life is I guess. I'm in my 30's and have missed out on the marriage and kids thing, at least, that is how it feels when you hear others speak of their kids, their partners, what new kitchen they have, or holidays...

    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.
