    I Don't Even Know.

    I thought that after high school I would be completely alone. I was never a social butterfly, and it seemed as if people only talked to me at school because we were in such a tiny school that they almost didn't have the choice. I was wrong, people really did want to see me after...

    I find such emptiness in my friendships.

    Even my closest friends I still feel cut off from. I can never find someone I want to get close to for too long. My best friend has become someone I don't even want to be around anymore. I'm just constantly shuffling who I'm with and I don't understand why I can't just settle...

    The Odd One Out

    I am just not that big of a talker. I mean, sometimes I am shy, especially if I'm around a cute guy, but mostly, I don't have all that much to say. I'm kind of more of a listener and an observationist than a chatter box, I guess. Is this why I am constantly...

    It's such a bad feeling.

    .. I am going through something that nobody (except a select few) knows about. My stbx is trying to complicate things further and humiliate me in the process... No one knows the silent pain I endure. I stay strong on the outside but am totally falling apart on the inside. It's...

    Alone But Not Lonely

    i feel like many of you. i can be surrounded by people those i know and those i don't. i will interact when the whim hits me. i prefer to just observe and listen. sometimes people are so busy thinking of what they are going to say next they don't really hear what is being said. i...

    The Masks I Wear.

    When I talk to people from within most of the time it is like I am speaking another language and they treat me like I am from another planet.  And it doesn't help that people wonder why I won't look them in the eye.  The truth is, when I do, they are generally afraid of...

    I'm So Alone, I'm So Used To Being Alone, I Don't Know Whether I Can Ever Adapt To Sharing Life Again?

    My earliest memory of socialising was at Kindergarden and although it is vague I think I wanted to be friends with a group which looked to me to be ancient good friends having fun and I almost begged and used their sympathy to be hang out with them yet still on the outside...

    After some changes in the last couple years, I now find myself surrounded by more people than I have in a long time. But I feel more alone than ever before. It feels like the universe taunts me continually by showing me glimpses of a better life.

    Since I Can Remember

    I have always felt alone. When I was a small child I never felt like I was a part of something, not even with my family. I've always had trouble maintaining close friendships with people. I have a group of friends that I've been hanging around with about eight years and they...

    Lost, Even To Those Who Are Friends

    Most of the time my friends see me as a smiling, laughing girl. But one single word, one odd glance...it all disappears, the mask melting like ice on a hot day. I'm not particularly loquacious unless amongst friends, and I think that's part of my problem. I need to branch out...
