    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.

    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 have almost everything I could ever want

    material wise, but when it comes down to it, I always feel empty! The one thing i don't have is someone who loves me! I don't get along with my parents, I don't have any friends, I've tried to talk to girls, but they eventually end up stopping talking to me! I honestly don't...

    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...

    Distancing Never Helped Anybody!

    I've suddenly come to realize that I am not really who I thought I was. I used to think that I knew everybody, everybody knew me, and I was liked by everyone. That was until Camp Middle School came around. All of the schools in the district come together as one school and of...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    being oneself has a price sometimes,

    and i believe we go through a phase where we feel nobody will accept us or love us because of how we are but there's nothing more beautiful and freeing than being oneself and that will only bring the right people into our lives....even if its only one.... it will be Real

    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?
