I Feel Abandoned

Stories from people who feel like they have been abandoned by people close to them 349 People

    Someone I grew to love never said goodbye.

    He had 4 months to tell me, we were good coworkers when he wasn't being awkward or suddenly going ice cold. What I felt around him was so real, I would have done anything to keep him in my life as a friend if he had ever given me the chance. He is now thousands of miles away...

    Like A Dog

    At this moment I feel like a dog. You know the kind that no one can take care of anymore because it's too much of a burden. It costs too much too feed or no one wants Β to watch after it. Some might call it self pity but when you do the history,, it's nothing but the truth. I...

    Abandonment Anxiety

    I was born to parents who loved me. I had extended family that spoiled and adored me. I was never abused or mistreated, I was very fortunate. Yet, I've had this issue for as long as I can remember. I get severe anxiety when someone I love is leaving for any extended period of...

    By My Father

    I don't even remember anything with him but him leaving when I was a baby makes me sometimes feel like I'm unwanted and unloved sometimes. Then my mom remarried divorced and even he left without trying to keep a relationship with me. My friend's parents got divorced and she...

    Losing Hope

    I don't know how much longer I can cope with these feelings of abandonment. I'm tired of people saying they care about me, but their actions do not match up to their words. I've been in some intense emotional pain lately and I feel like no one cares. Just because you say you care...

    True Dat

    Funny all the expressions you would use were so childish. Many times I thought you were more like my teenage son than an adult. Pretty immature for a 45 year old man. I guess I shouldn't be surprised when you didn't handle things well with me. You and I were really close and...

    One of the worst feelings in the world is

    feeling abandoned by someone or those close to you. Rather than being sad or angry, I am used to it actually, used to being alone, not being wanted. I've experienced it many times throughout my life. What may sound contradicting is that I no longer get my hopes up yet I continue...
