    I'm Tired Of Feeling Alone

    I have been married for 16 years now, and I feel alone. I have felt that way for years. My wife and I will chat about this and that, but we never discuss anything of depth or meaning.  We have not been intimate in years.    One day, I was searching for something...

    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.

    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...

    After 4 years, he started acting different

    and I'm pretty sure he found someone else. Why couldn't he just break it off when he was losing interest... I'm shattered :'/

    Locked Mind

    There is nothing more depressing to find that you're all alone, when there are so many people around you. They all say "Be strong, i'm here for you" but at the end of the day, it doesn't mean anything, sometetimes words are just words- completely void of all emotion. They don't...

    Take A Moment.

    With the end of the year approaching, it's that time again where one reflects on everything. Decisions, regrets, experiences - every moment shared, every moment you can remember just flashes through your eyes. Moments just fly by, and it's rare to see someone take their moments...

    I was molested by my ex at 15.

    I've never been close to any girls, so I suffer in my confusion and agony alone, with no best friends to lean on. It's a terrifying road I'm on. Sometimes I think I'll never have a tight group of friends.

    though I am not, I still feel alone.

    I have many friends who I can talk to but I still feel alone with my issues. There are so many things growing up that have gone wrong, with sexuality and belonging, that I no longer know how to belong

    It has always been this way.

    Just a pit of despair that has me trapped. When I talk to people and have fun, I forget about these feelings for a while. Sadly, once they leave, it all comes back to me. My friend Molly, hasn't talked to me for so long. Not only that but she has been talking to this guy Chris...

    Regardless of my loving family

    and friends, I somehow feel like I'm all alone. I'm not really sure how to explain it but it seems like the world is whole lot scarier and I don't have the strength to keep moving. Sometimes I just want to sit in a corner by myself and cry, because I feel like no one could ever...

    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 :)
