    I'm new to this site and,

    personally, it's kind of sad to me for being alone in my room on the internet on a Sunday. I suppose that it is what it is. I've answered a few posts and it makes me feel a little better just knowing that I'm not alone in feeling like this. To those reading this, thank you and...

    Loneliness Knows Me By Name

    Feeling lonely is the most hurtful feeling anyone can ever face... it drives apart even the people we cared about..... I remember a song lyrics from Westlife " May be surrounded by a million people, I still feel all alone" this is exactly how I feel. I shifted to a new country...

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

    friends. I used to get out of bed. I just cry everyday. I am a caged animal. One year of sheer hell and torment

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I'm extremely lonely right now.

    I'm crying. Been listening to all that remains- what if I was nothing like 20 times and I still don't feel better. What happened was all the guys we were partying with left and it triggered feelings of abandonment from my father. I feel extreme loneliness and no one and nothing...

    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...

    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...
