I Am Surrounded By People Yet Still Feel So Alone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 380 People

    Some days I feel completely alone.

    I have friends. Good ones at that. But sometimes I slip into this mind set that no one likes me and wants anything to do with me. I really need to learn not to do that.

    I feel like I have to fight

    for my survival while everyone else is on auto-pilot. I wish the world was overrun by zombies.

    I have experienced this in every stage of my

    life. I never felt I was important, needed, wanted or mattered. When I walk into a room that is crowded I want to leave. I know no one and because I ignored and hurt as a child I prefer to be by myself. To avoid getting and feeling hurt I keep quiet and stay by myself. I am...

    When I'm with my "friends",

    they don't talk to me. They don't wait for me if I'm the last one getting up from the table. They don't do what they usually do with their other friends.

    I often sit here wondering to myself how to

    make things change? I have tried over the years, yes years to be a better parent, husband and person and it feels like I'm slowly losing myself in who I am. It seems that there are moments when everything is going great and there is not a worry in the world, but then it all...

    Just Another Day..

    I hate feeling sorry for myself or having others feel sorry for me. I used to be the host of my own pity party but I sorta got tired of it so now I just keep it to myself or unleash my wrath on my boyfriend. Since we moved in together, seems like I left my friends or they left me...

    I Wish I Could Talk To The People Around Me...

    When I need to talk to someone the most it feels like everyone that has ever offered thier ears are the ones that I probably should not be talking to. One example is at a place that I work. There is a girl that works there that I have recently started talking to and have been...

    I'm surrounded by about 7-10 people everyday,

    yet I still feel lonely. I'm excluded out of everything and I feel like the odd ball there. I try to be social but nobody ever pays attention to me now. My friends recently had been ignoring me here and there and I just want to leave but if I do who else could I go to? Nobody.

    I Have my friends but sometimes they just let

    me down and I start questioning if they really care or not. If I'm with them having fun the next day it's either a the same or they let me down. I sometimes feel so alone with or without them.
