    Go ahead and tell me to move to my moms!

    Is that really a punishment, maybe I will actually be loved there! Too bad I can't because I wouldn't have the educational and sports opportunities there, otherwise I would! I'm nothing but a mistake to you aren't I! If only I was able to open up to you! Maybe I would say I...

    I feel distant... Disconnected from humanity,

    surrounded by people yet so lonely.

    I dont even know what to say

    when I'm with my friends anymore, or my family. It just feels awkward and distant. I dont enjoy spending time with anyone anymore, and I feel guilty for it.

    My friendship doesn't seems to stay.

    I've been a timid girl since young. I lost all connection with my highschool friends other than my best friends when we graduated. And then I went to college on my own. I wanted to change, be bolder, be more confident, make more friends. I tried. I became (a bit too) kind and...

    There's something that tugs at me upon the

    sight of an empty hallway. The acute loss of purpose. Bring me the faceless and Restore the static noise. The silence is simply too much to bear, sometimes.

    Holding It In

    I have a wife who I can not communicate with and it seems to make it hard to communicate with anybody else.  I am just so used to holding everything in.

    Feeling Distant.

    I hope I'm not reaching depression, but I've been feeling distant lately. During the summer I was fine and the beginning weeks of school, but now I feel disconnected from the world. Maybe I'm trying to juggle too many activities. It almost feels as if I clock out from the world...

    Sensative

    I'm very sensative to negativity. I never understood people. I do now. I'm still distant from most everyone in the world. I want to remain alone. I am not a social person. I can be nice to people who are nice to me. But I don't go looking for conversation, often. I can't relate...

    Yeah....

    There are times when I feel very distant from people, an abnormality. The people I feel I should connect to seem not to be "there", but I am not sure if it is me or them. There are those people who I am truely connected to who bring me back, but still, the feeling rarely fades...

    I used to be so close to people.

    I liked my friends a lot, loved my boyfriend a lot and everything was wonderful. Then, I started worrying. I stopped doing the things I loved, I stopped seeing the people I loved. I tore apart every relationship with my friends by cutting them off. It's been six months now. I...

    In My Own World

    I feel like I've been growing more distant from everybody lately... Barely noticing if somone calls for me, spending less and less time with my friends, neglecting some of my duties... Is this a side effect of being alone for so long?

    Alone.

    I just feel like I am floating on a raft on the dark ocean all by myself.  At any minute a shark will come and bite my raft, causing me to sink.

    I Am So Distant.

    I'm like floating around all by myself out here.  I just need Andrew to get here and pick me up, I guess.  He's the only person who won't make me feel worse.
