    I feel extremely alienated.

    I don't know how to go on. I feel abandoned. I just looked up both the definition for abandonment and alienation. I haven't felt normal in such a long time. I haven't felt good in such a long time. :(. I haven't got any real friends. I just want love, I need love, I want to...

    My biggest fear is that I will become

    too comfortable with the idea of being lonely for the rest of my life. I just want to love and be loved is that too much to ask for?

    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 :)

    I am trying my best not to bother other people

    with my problems. "They don't care about that", I always think. There are moments when I need someone I can tell everything and that someone will give me a good advice and NOT judge me. I have friends, if you wonder, but I know what they will say. "Everything will be okay" is...

    It is hard to live alone.

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

    I've got good friends

    but no matter what I still feel alone. I don't know why, but I feel like I'm waiting for that one person to come along and make my life complete again. Not necessarily in a true love, soul mate way. Could be in a best friend way. You never know. Need someone to make me smile.

    Alone & Overwhelmed

    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 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.

    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.

    I do not know what to do.

    I feel like I'm at yet another crossroads in life. I am not very happy here, at least with my current position. I hate how I feel that everything comes down to money - but that is how I feel. I have grown to despise it. I don't even want fancy things anymore, like Bentley's...

    I want someone to share my thoughts and feelings with. Someone to laugh with. I feel so isolated right now, trapped in my own mind. I need something more.
