    I Am Accepting Loneliness

    I'm coming to terms with the fact that I may die alone, and you know what? It isn't really all that bad. I don't need a significant other to be happy and in all honesty I feel like it would just hold me back. True freedom means either the single life or a girl who is literally...

    I am so lonely. I used to have a life,

    The Whirpool That I Drift Towards

    NO! SHUT UP! YOU DON’T MEAN IT!…just leave me alone….Why is that when I find happiness that I have to push it away…that I can’t trust it…that I’ll do everything in my power to push anyone away? What do I have to do to make myself realize that what I have is good for...

    Long Nights

    Pathetic. That sums up my personal status at this point, at least that's how I feel. I'm currently at the peak of my loneliness and I feel as though I can't get out of this depressing state. Now before I continue this vent session, I feel you need to know that I have very close...

    My Name Is Josh. I Am Alone.

    I always used to wonder how most of the people around me were happy with their lives. how they could do what they did and how they all went about their lives without giving much thought to what they are doing and why. Yes.. I was alone. Loneliness has been with me ever since I...

    Its the one thing missing.

    Though i hate trying to get close. Ive gone nuts in my own head. I want nothing but to be a part of. Though i close myself off. My ego is out of control. A defense for my insecurity. My temper is not tamed due to the hate i have for myself. I ramble. I complain. I curse god. I i...

    Do We Have To Stay Like This?

    I decided not to divulge a sob story here. We should all have an idea of what it means to be lonely. We may have arrived here by different means, but the loneliness is still just as pervasive. So, I want to change that. I live in the Houston area. Would anyone be interested...

    myself, doing the things I love. And there are times where I wish I weren't single and had someone to say I love you too, to enjoy a nice Saturday afternoon with. This is one of those times.

    But, loneliness is inevitable.

    I learned that everyone that you see around you has a hole in their heart. It doesn't always matter who they appear to be, or how they seem, we all suffer from loneliness. We all fear we will be abandoned, or die alone, or never find someone. This obsession with sex in the media...

    I'm so tired of spending weekends alone at home,

    staring at walls because no one wants to be around me. I moved to a new state because of a job, but I live in a small hill-town where everyone knows everyone, and I stick out too much for them to want to be with me. Because of the distance in where I live, it is difficult to go...
