    Always Alone

    Sometimes when I'm alone at home, I'll sit and wonder...why I'm always alone? It seems like there's alot of people around me, but when I really need someone to lend me a shoulder or just sit and listen to me talk, I can't think of anyone. I hate the feeling of being alone. The...

    I Am Physically Alone.

    I have lots of great people here on EP.  So, I am not alone as far as not having anyone to talk to, but I am alone in the physical sense.  I have spoken about two sentences aloud today.  No one has touched me in days.

    I usually listen to music and work on my stories when I'm alone because when I'm around people they always interrupt me, so I try to get as much alone time as I can.

    When I'm alone I can think about what I want to do with my life. I can just cry and it makes me feel better. Sometimes the only person who can make me feel better is myself
