I Feel Dead Inside

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 925 People

    I'm so exhausted of faking like I'm okay

    when I'm not. Whether I'm at work, or around my friends and family . They say reach out to someone but like how? Why would anyone want to be around somebody who seems to have clinical depression , when they can surround them selves with happy - positive people?

    I feel no empathy. People tell me sad stories -

    I shrug my shoulders. I won't cry after hearing of a person's passing. I love to rain on someone's parade by giving them a reality check. Man I need to get laid.

    I feel dead inside, like I'm breathing

    but I'm not alive. I'm touching but I'm not feeling. I just carry that empty feeling inside me, it's like I'm not sad not happy not anything, emotionless kind of want to cry, only I can't, before I would cry myself to sleep, I would cry a lot but now not even watery eyes.

    Dead Inside, Alive Outside.

    Not necessarily that empty inside. I can feel the emotions within me, but I'm exhausted. I feel as if all of this was for naught, that my future isn't evident. I must be in the clouds, thinking that I'd vanish with them, but clouds...they don't bring you along. I feel that I don...

    I've been hurt by so many people,

    humiliated, I've always been wrong, weird or not worth it, that I decided it is better to just be emotionless. Emotions get in the way of everything. They keep me up at night, they make me feel alone, I procrastinate with emotions and so on. So, right now, I am dead inside. I...

    I don't know if it's exactly "dead inside",

    that's extremely macabre. I would say barren & empty. I feel like a shell sometimes that completely lacks purpose.

    This isn't how it's always been.

    My world is wrapped in a hundred layers of cellophane. Sounds are muffled, sights are skewed, emotions are dulled, time is blurry. I don't know when this will end, and I don't know if I have the energy to care.

    ohne dich bin ich so traurig und leer.

    die Sonne nicht mehr scheint und Ich lebe allein mit nur meine Gedanken. Es tut mir leid. The birds stopped singing and the wind stopped blowing. I hate my life.

    My emotions... They're stuck inside me.

    They cause confusion when attempted to be shared. They are mine. They may stay inside permanently. I try to express them. It's still difficult. I feel misunderstood. I've stuffed them down for many years. That may be best. One person knows them in depth. My therapist. She tried...

    for almost 4 years, he was never mine but I did gave to him my heart. I can do nothing. I can't have him back I can't get over him and nothing matters without him. So I guess I'm dead inside... It's sad that I can love only him.
