I Am So Tired of Hurting and Being Sad

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,670 People

    Since many years ago,

    almost every day, i feel exhausted, drained, to the point of feeling like everything i do is a chore. Sometimes, i go to bed during the day, and when i get up, or wake up, it's like i'm crawling out of a grave. Only if i could go to bed, and fall asleep, but i can't, for many...

    I feel so alone right now.

    I know it'll probably pass by morning but sitting here at 1:03am it certainly doesn't feel like it. I made the mistake of messaging my abusive ex today. I tell myself I'm over him but deep down I still hope he'll come back. Oh god what's wrong with me...

    These are my thoughts

    so apologises that it rambles on. All I want in life is to be loved to lay in bed to able to go to sleep with someone who loves me in my arms being able to cuddle being able to wake up and have a kiss and cuddle. To be loved for me, to go to work and be kissed goodbye and...

    Its just really fascinating how the people u

    meet will say such sweet kind words such as "I'll be there when u need me" "You have me to share your thoughts with" "I'll help you get better" "I promise" But when u need them.. They're gone.. You were there for them but when it's your turn that needs them.. That needs help...

    For the past several months I have been hurting

    more and more. My close friends have been tearing me down. It is not their intent to hurt me, but they do not exactly help. Moreover, there are friends I would like to see, that seem to brighten the day. They never have time for me. I feel like a burden on others. One...

    Sometimes, being hurt very badly is life's way

    of telling us that we are better off without that which caused the pain.

    Because of him. He caused me

    so much pain. I can't sleep and can't stop my tears from falling down. He lied about everything and I believed him when he said that I'm his dream. I wish him pain and sadness. I just wish, only wish to happen to him what he did to me.

    This has felt like the longest couple weeks.

    In the last 2 weeks, I lost 2 great friends and my mother passed away. The loneliness feels overwhelming. I grieve for the lose of my friends as much as anyone else. Because they took a part of me when they went. Now the memorial service for mom tomorrow. Picking music for the...

    I always fall for the wrong guy.

    My ex was the absolute worst. The fighting was damn near unbearable. The breakup drained me. It made me hard and jagged. I wasn't open to meeting anyone new. It took me a lot of time to get over it. Two years to be exact. When I finally was open to the idea of starting...

    It is not always easy;

    but sometimes burning bridges is required for self preservation. Loving is a decision. Living is a choice.

    I just need a little room to break.

    A place where I can cry all I want without people asking why and feeling sorry for me. A place where I can break stuff when I'm mad, angry and hurt.

    It seems the only time people want to include

    me in anything is when they need something from me, whenever I can't be of use to anyone it seems no one wants me around. I don't think I've ever felt this used and alone in my life

    When I'm alone the pain can be unbearable.

    It's this hollow and empty feeling that lives inside me like a curse. It's horrendous.

    I have a deep fear in my heart that I will lose the love of my children. I have nothing else left in this world other than them and ache with the thought that they will eventually be gone. I have never learned to love anyone other than them. And yet, I have nothing to give, even...

    For the past one year there wasn't a single

    night I could sleep without worrying. And there wasn't a day I didn't hurt. First, I thought this pain will subside over time and I am gonna be ok just after 3 months. But I guess over time my pain only increases. I truly miss being not shattered and broken. I miss those times I...

    Not really peace if mind.

    .. Because I still don't understand what happened. And I am still hoping you will explain things one day. It's just that I didn't exactly have any other choice except to accept things and give up.

    It didn’t sound like this would be the last

    time we actually talked to each other. Our last fight about whose internet connection sucked more. For the past seven months we’ve been far, but not this kind of far. Ups and downs, you and me. Eventually it brought a big fat snow ball. Fears, insecurities...moving on. It took...

    I miss you so much, but I couldn't do anything

    else. I'm so sorry, but to cut you off was the only way to protect myself. I wasn't able to carry all the pain anymore. I love you too much. I still hope, somewhere deep in my heart, that you love me too. I hope for the best for you. Love you.

    Sometimes the pain outweighs my desire to live.

    The depression is so strong. I think "Why did God even make me?" I'll cry for hours in sheer despair. I feel it in the core of my being like it's something alive that wants me dead.
