    I feel broken. Im alone,

    I have no to talk to only this one person on this website who isn't online most of the time i am. my only best friends are my watch because I can rely on it to say the truth, my pillow because I hug it to help me feel better and my book because it entertains me. At the age of 10...

    Most of the time... I have trouble finding

    people that I'm try interested in and can follow the conversation. Therefore, it's devastating to lose a friend.

    It is hard to live alone.

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

    I wish I could tell my parents how alienated I

    feel. I can't keep a relationship and I feel angry inside. I wish I could tell everyone how much they screwed up my life, but if people think in terms of monetary value and how much their families cost, I would sue my family for $2 million in hurt feelings, pain, damage...

    Alone & Overwhelmed

    It becomes extremely difficult

    when you know you need to cut someone off as a friend, because they're toxic and are going to cause destruction in your life. Although you're so afraid of losing that person, because they're the only friend that you had left to talk too. They were consistently there even if...

    Take A Moment.

    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've been feeling very alone lately,

    I hope that putting my feelings out there will help in some way. I don't really have anyone to share my feelings with, I don't want people I know to know just how alone I feel. After the death of my son, it's almost at the 5 year mark, I shut myself off emotionally and pushed...

    Those moments when you have no one to talk too,

    so you go looking through everything to find at least one friendly chatter. Wish he wasn't always so busy... It sucks especially at night. Night is when you need that person the most. Night is where loneliness really rears its ugly head.

    Don't trust or look up to people

    who say they're too busy to text you or be there for you when you need them. If they wanted to be there, then they would've. If they do want to be around, then clearly they are a lousy friend that likes to let you down all the time.

    I have a hubby and my kids it is not that

    but I miss friends. I rarely get invited to the parties my friends have and I always end up bending over backwards to make them like me. I revert back to the lonely girl really really quickly. I hunger for attention and once I'm tossed away like the old toy my heart sinks.
