    Sometimes, I wonder if I'm a failure at life.

    People tell me not to focus on "relationships", or that I'm "too desperate". I am desperate, yes; but I'm scared of being alone. Because of loneliness, I cry in my sleep, or in some rare circumstances, I wish to never to wake up when I lay my head down. All I want is someone to...
