    "Do people even see me?

    " I wonder to myself as I look around the school hallway, feeling more invisible than ever. I always felt alone and misunderstood, but high school has made it evident to me that I do not belong anywhere, so far. I sit in class and slowly spin my pencil with its tip against the...

    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...

    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...

    I have been a very involved mom

    for 14 years. Now my son is growing up and independent (which I'm really proud of and supportive of), I am realizing that I've neglected my personal life. What do I do? Where do I start? Nothing feels right

    I'm pretty used to being alone

    and I prefer it even. I'm in my last year of high and my mom wants me to get involved in school. She fails to realize this is my third high school, so I hate the people there and I don't like the school. I don't want to show any spirit. I've been there a year & a half and I...

    I feel abandoned by everybody.

    I don't have anyone to talk to without them rolling their eyes or sighing. I've been kicked out of my social group. My family is too caught up to care. I just feel alone.

    I just want someone to hold me.

    . Tell me everything's alright.. Not let me be alone.. Understands my fear of crowds.. Makes me feel beautiful.. Makes me laugh through my tears.. I want all of that but the most important things.. Are to hold me and tell me that everything is gonna be alright.

    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...

    It is hard to live alone.

    It's my fault. Now it is.

    I'm aware of what I'm doing and what I've done to be nearly friendless and a distant memory to former "loves," a mystery to my family. I don't mind it ordinarily, but days like this when I have company and then they leave not to be seen for a good while I notice the loneliness...

    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.

    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.
