I Feel Empty Inside

    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...

    It's Friday. My shift was over,

    and I could feel the city buzzing with excitement, I saw the streets getting crowded, people rushing to their activities and their busy lives. I stood still in front of the subway station, not knowing where to go.. With a continuous flow of people moving around me, felt like I...

    "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.

    Hollow Is More Like It

    I suppose I'm writing in this group because I have the urge to write "something" but honestly, I'm having a hard time coming up with anything positive, or constructive to say at all. I try to remain strong, I put up a good front for those around me, I've even managed...

    The past few months has been like a waterfall

    running out of water . Running out of energy . Running out of motivation . Running out of money . Running out of everything and just waiting for it all to be gone with nothing to refill it with .

    I have moments in my life

    where I just sit at home for days even weeks, whenever I'm off from school or when my friends and boyfriend are busy, I sit feeling empty no emotions just complete emptiness. I don't have any love for the ones around me including myself and wallow in self pity. I don't think...

    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.

    I don't really want to do anything ever.

    I haven't seen friends in weeks because I don't really care to. I go to a job to earn money for nothing. I don't really have a plan anymore. I'm just not sure what to do lately. I just go day by day, floating along, never making an impact or realizing others making theirs.

    Today all my thoughts seem to be turning to

    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

    I have everything I could wish

    for yet I always have this empty feeling inside. I feel like sad but I don't show it. I always hide my feelings I don't wanna come across as weak. This feeling I have just sucks and I feel like it will never go away.

    I'm going through the motions every single day,

    like some car on the road to nowhere. I just want something to shake up my world, to give me some ******* purpose. I'm so tired of being unimportant. I want to be the reason someone smiles when they wake up. God I just need something to fill this empty hole in my stomach.

    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...

    No matter who I'm with,

    I feel so empty inside,

    I've been depressed for so long now, I don't feel anything. I'm just a breathing blob of nothing. i hope one day, I'll wake up one morning and actually like who I am. but until then, I'll just feel like an ugly self hated nothing.
