    I cry myself to sleep most nights

    because I can't take the unbearable silence of my loneliness. I fear rejection and pain, so I build walls that keep out more than just my enemies.

    You feel so alone, wanting attention,

    wanting to be desired. Wanting to know that d*mn it, he wants me. Wanting him to show me that I'm his woman. Wanting him to show me that I'm the one he wants. I wait and wait. I cry. I'm miserable. I feel guilty for wanting to have my needs met somewhere else. I feel guilty for...

    I can't stand it anymore,

    I can't bare to see other people happy because of my jealousy. I'm almost disgusted with myself. All I want is to be wanted. I'm tired of feeling alone.

    I feel alone all the time

    and I don't know why. I've tried a lot of things. A lot of people say they love me or "insert compliment here" I don't think it's sincere. I know everyone is busy. They have jobs, school, work or their own problems. Everyone has their own little hell they create in their head...

    So it's early morning

    and I'm awake. Its the middle of winter so the house is cold and dark. All I can hear are my thoughts. I get restless. I'm tired, I'm lonely and I'm bored. So I'm in here looking for a distraction so I don't drive myself insane.

    Ever since I decided to let go of all of the

    negative people in my life, I've realized that I don't have any real friends. In the past 3 months I've gotten out of a 4 year relationship with my boyfriend and just tonight lost my best friend of 7 years because she's constantly putting me down and stressing me out. I got rid...

    So not we all? I think this is the most common

    thing. We live in the era of superficial relationships. We have too many superficial people instead of one soul mate. We all need soulmate but why we are afraid to be just with one person, text just one person. Do lots of convos in your inbox help you to overcome loneliness? Of...

    I'm getting kind of sick of feeling alone all

    the time. It's been a really tough year and so far an uneventful summer. Wish I had someone to talk to, I miss having a best friend that loves me. But oh well I guess.

    It is hard to live alone.

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

    I'm married to a man whom I've known 7 years.

    He use to be the only person that could make me smile, but now when I look at him my stomach turns. He has an addiction and was doing very well. He relapsed. We are due to have a baby in October and I just feel alone. He says he is happy and excited but all I see is an immature...

    I am tired of being alone.

    Yes, I miss my wife, but she passed away shortly after we were married, and I feel alone. I also feel that no one understands me. It makes me feel all the more lonely. I hope to change that soon.

    High school completely

    and utterly sucks. "Best time of your life", my arse! I sit here, quite contently, sipping a hot chocolate, but the thought of school makes my mood plummet. It got worse from the first year, and I'm glad I only have one more year. From my first year to my third year, most people...

    Lately I've been noticing how I'm changing

    as a person. And how I feel like I'm not pretty enough, I don't have a best friend, that I can't help others when they need it because I'm too busy trying to deal with my depression. I feel alone

    So much crappy and lame things happening in my

    life lately and I feel like I've got nobody by my side :( I don't want sympathy or pity or anything other than a little understanding but nope. Seems like I'm constantly looking around and wondering who I can trust.

    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.

    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.

    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 becomes extremely difficult

    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...
