I Feel Alone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 19,002 People

    I used to hate this feeling.

    I still do, but as of recently I started to like being alone. Its sort of hard to explain. I think to sum it up I'd rather feel alone now, than be surrounded by people whom make me feel alone. Throughout my life, I've always felt some sort of emptiness inside. I never felt...

    I am writing this having spent the evening at a

    party in the company of family, relatives and acquaintances, and I never felt so alone in my life. The evening consisted of politely smiling, nodding, looking at my shoes, awkwardly trying to look like I was actually participating in conversation, worrying what people thought of...

    Well I'm about to go to church

    but I just had a breakdown. Ever since my older sister (15) left to live in a different state across the country with our mom, I've felt this void in my heart. I feel alone even when I'm surrounded by people. I can't handle her being gone. I know I'm being selfish (she wants to...

    Do you ever get the feeling

    that you're alone? Like you have friends and all, but at the end of the day you feel that you're truly all alone and that no one would even care if you went missing? That's happening to me right now. I go to high school and I have friends, it's just that I don't really think...

    I've felt alone as long

    as I can remember, I have many friends, but none of them really seem to feel me. Sometimes I just start crying because of how alone I feel.

    I Came Here For Validation

    I need to know I'm not the only one who feels this way. More than often I enjoy my own company more than the company of others. I'm called antisocial, but I know this isn't the case because I like people and I like socializing. I just like being in my own head so much more...

    Sad.

    Others don't see us as we see ourselves.  It can be a terribly lonely feeling when those we've grown to trust and appreciate insist on defining us as somebody we are not.   As much as I've grown to love EP, this can be a terribly lonely place.  AT times, I look...

    I thought EP would help with my depression.

    ..you know, kind of anonymously talking to others who are going through the same thing. All it turned out to be is an app with 50 year old horny men and teenagers who's stories make me want to cry.

    Im insanly agoraphobic (scared of people;

    social anxiety) and slow to warm up to new people in person. So consequently i only have 3 good girlfriends who i can really talk to about stuff. But theyre always busy so i spend a lot of time alone with my cat. Gets a bit lonely but Mittens is a good listener :)

    It is hard to live alone.

    Especially when you are married. But, many military families live this way. They have no choice.

    My name is Andrea. I'm 18 years old.

    I'm a freshmen in college. Lately I've been pretty lonely. I feel like I don't have anybody to talk to, which really sucks. I hardly get a text from anybody. Nobody really talks to me anymore. I feel like I don't have any friends. It makes me sad but yeah I feel alone.

    Even online, there doesn't seem to be a lot of

    people my age. Most people are in their teens looking for arousal or trolling because they're bored. It's one thing when people around you ignore you offline, but it's another when you can't find anyone online either.... Am I just looking in the wrong places?

    Everyone ends up alone in the end.

    I always reach this point where the friends I know and love are no longer the people I can talk to about what's really going on or what's bothering me. I start to feel like the world is too big yet there's no place for me, like I'll always be lost wherever I go...I just feel so...
