I Am So Sad and Lonely That It Is Killing Me

    It's to the point where bad things are

    happening to them and I don't care. I don't feel anything sometimes. I've been single for 2 years. .. whenever I look all I hear is "you don't have a chance with her..." or "yes I would go out with you." Then nothing. I'm an adult. Saying no makes better than getting my hopes...

    I don't have anyone that I can talk to

    and be completely honest with. I have no one to share my feelings with and I'm scared of living a long life feeling this loneliness and misery. I want someone to care about me and show me that they care. I want to be someone's "everything", someone's best friend, someone's 4am...

    New Year's Eve and I'm sitting at home,

    working, while all my "friends" are out partying. It makes you feel like **** when you're not invited and then everyone rubs it in your face. This sucks.

    I have a fear that I will be forever alone.

    Two years ago I was so happy and loved. It was a toxic relationship but it was so good at the same time. I'm so emotionally tired of being alone and having no one to be with or talk to. I'm positive that I will be loved again and be in love. But I just want that day to come...

    It's No Use...

    I'm just a useless person who doesn't matter. Nothing would happen if I killed myself anyway. No one would notice. If a few a people do notice, they wouldn't care, or would probably think it's funny anyway. I've always been scared to kill myself for eight years now. But it seems...

    I'm so lonely it's unbelievable

    and I'm married. I got married to a lady from the Philippines that I met on an Internet dating site. She is half my age. She texts me when she needs me to pick her up from work and she always adds I love you, but never says it in person. We sleep in different bedrooms,no sex...

    I really don't know why I

    even exist. No guy ever gives me a second glance and I'm just too ugly too ever find someone who loves me. I really feel like I want to kill myself in 5 years time if I'm still in the same situation then. I don't want to end up alone in some apartment for the rest of my life...

    This is my first post

    so here goes.... I am getting to the point where maybe just nobody likes me, actually no that's wrong, I would say that nobody values me. I'm leading such a boring life and there doesn't seem to be a way out. Everyday I wake up at stupid o'clock and then spend nearly 2 hours...

    and it said we can't be friends anymore. He got a new gf and thinks that I will ruin his relationship with her. Wtf am I going to do to ruin a relationship? If I am that important and influential in your life then maybe you're with the wrong person. But now I don't have any real...

    I sit up at night with my headphones in my ears

    and wish that I could be out with friends, family...anyone. I often wonder if it's my own fault that I'm so alone, that I may have made the wrong choices in terms of the friends I made along the way in my life. Even among people I am lonely... within crowds and anywhere that I...

    Alone But ...

    I've read some stories about loneliness, and it prompted me to write this. At 51, I thought I'd be somewhere other than where I am now. I thought I'd have a book published by now, that I'd have my own herd of alpacas (albeit a small one), that I'd be with the love of my life and...

    I am sad. And problem with me is

    that I'm shy and it's really hard for me to share my problems. Can't tell anyone what I think or what I feel. But now I can't bear it any more. I'm not believe in love or other similar things. For me it's just attraction to someone and that's why he/she becomes important for us...

    My flat is a mess, my head is a mess,

    my life is a mess. The pain, the hurt, all the negative emotion is draining my body of energy. I have no motivation. I just want to lay in bed, tucked away beneath the duvet. Hidden away. Life is not what it's cracked up to be. I don't really want to participate in...

    There is nothing good about me.

    Nothing. I try to be of good. I'm not. Not as any personality. Not good in any environment. Not good to anyone or thing. I'm an absolute waste of space. My aunt let me know years ago that everybody hated me and that the family wanted to pay for me to be aborted. They should have...

    that I am still helping her in any situation but that I donĀ“t have to expect aid from her. My brother lives far away from me and is not interested at all to have just a little bit contact to me or just to my son (his goodchild!). The father of my son (my former husband) just...

    I'm 28 and have zero friends.

    Most days my phone doesn't ring at all and when it does is usually my dad or boyfriend. I was bullied in school, the work place, and by my family as a child to the point where I have just given up completely. I do everything alone or with my son. Shopping, errands, out to eat...

    When I think about it too much,

    I cry or panic. I mostly panic in public and cry at home. Once I cried at school but I'm always alone so nobody really noticed except for the janitor who just awkwardly walked away.

    I Am All Alone and She Could Care Less

    The readers digest version is that the woman I spent my life with for 28 years, the woman that I devoted myself to left me like a sack of garbage at the curb of life.  She never appreciated anything that I did for her or our girls, never made even a token attempt...

    I just want someone to be with me- soothe my

    crying inner boy that is me. He's gone without any help, any compassion and any love for way too long. Whenever he pushes back people, it was only to not become engulfed in me as I might not cope- he was fearing for me. But, now I've shut off him, and my emotions, and I don't...

    No matter what I do I am always alone.

    I Feel Broken.

    My first post... Today was so awful. I have great parents, but even they didn't understand the magnitude of the pain I'm in. I have been depressed for years and years, so much so that I didn't really have a childhood. Not that I am that mature. Just, I am that sad. Sad beyond my...

    I have alway been everyone's second choice.

    No one willingly wants to talk/be with me. Even when I am with someone, I question whether they actually like me.

    a little better isn't talking to me. It hurts so much waiting and waiting, hoping that I'll hear something soon. I just need someone to talk to. Someone I can hold for a few hours.
