    This emptiness inside me is becoming too big.

    It chokes me, it makes it hard to breathe. I feel like it's slowly crushing me from the inside out. I'm so scared and I'm so alone and I can't do this anymore it's killling me I can't do this anymore

    For a while I thought I was doing okay.

    I was almost happy and contented. Talking to people eased my loneliness, gave me a bit of self-worth. But now I'm down this road again. I feel helpless, hopeless and empty for no apparent reason. I am only still here because I love my mother so much that I would never dare break...

    Empty feelings, empty eyes,

    been like that for around three years, not sure what makes me like that though but I rarely get hurt, sad, happy, angry, and any other feelings anymore, just empty.

    Ever had a feeling that you've been there,

    I had an abortion 4 days ago,

    and now I just feel empty all the time. I've locked myself and just haven't talked to my roommate or seen any of my friends, I hardly eat. I just want everything to stop, the person I was seeing hasn't talked to me since I told him I was pregnant. I feel alone.

    It's like I realized that way down inside, I've always been lonely for something. But I don't know what for. It's like everybody in the world want's something. Only they never really know exactly what it is - they just keep finding out what it's not. You know how, when you turn...

    Meaninglessness, Emptiness

    Emptiness, it's like a base state. When I am truly alone and have no reason to be anything to anyone, all of the layers of disguise, emotion ... they just fall away, and I find that I am really ... nothing. Without any outside exertion, I fall into a state of inertia. Social...

    "Why?" "I don't understand!

    " "Why is it like this...?" "Why does it have to be this way...?" "What's the point?" "Why am I here?" "What's the point of dying??" "What's the point of living??" I can't seem to understand the reason anymore, if there's any, it all seems so senseless to me.

    No matter who I'm with,

    I feel like a part of me is missing.

    I don't know why but it makes me feel empty. Like I have something more to me, but I don't know what it is. It feels nearly inhuman. Maybe it's because I crave for that something more than what I am. I am not satisfied with just being average. I need more out of life than what...
