    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...

    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'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...

    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 mother is old and I found out some days ago

    that I am still helping her in any situation but that I don´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...

    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...

    Nobody has time for me anymore.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.
