    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...

    I can't say if it's a sad feeling

    or not, because honestly I'm beyond used to feeling depressed. It's exactly what the word above reads: "Empty" It's as if there's nothing there, nothing inside, just a ton of blank space and loud echoes. It's a feeling that hasn't gone away since the age of twelve. It's not as...

    Whenever I'm sad and I keep quiet,

    my friends don't even bother to ask me if I'm alright. They just simply left me alone all by myself and don't talk to me. The next day when I feel better, they startrd to talk to me as if nothing happen. I'm in doubt if they were my friends. They make me so confused. It's not...

    I have no idea what is wrong with me right now.

    . its like my life has been sucked right out of me. Everything I know to be true about myself has gone... or what I used to know. I used to love reading, and get way too excited when a new book arrived or looking online for more.. I used to love seeing my friends from home...

    that empty spot. I can't stand living like this. I'm laughing but still feel so empty. I can't escape this darkness. I can't escape, me.

    Ok so I've been feeling very lonley

    and empty even my friends have noticed this change in me. I've been quiet and constantly contemplating life, and I've become very nostalgic because I feel like when I was younger I felt more free and happy... Has anyone else ever felt that way?

    I feel so empty and out of place

    and disconnected from everything and everyone. I feel I should have been born in another time, in another place. Like this reality has nothing to offer me.

    Today all my thoughts seem to be turning to

    I want more. I crave more

    than what I already have. I know I should be happy with what I have but I expect so much. I want more and it's probably killing me.

    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...

    Again, or still, whatever.

    Ever had a feeling that you've been there,

    Today, I tried opening up to someone about my

    past. My childhood. This person that I opened up to, I held closest in my life but we are no longer close. I couldn't open up even 1/3 of the way. I just started writing and eventually I had to stop because all I was able to feel was an immense sunken feeling in the pit of my...

    I always feel empty inside.

    Always longing for something that is not there. Always seeking, but not finding. Wanting someone to come home to, to talk too, cuddle with, laugh with, someone to be on your team when no one else is. I know no one is perfect, not everything is going to be 100% all the time. Find...

    Emotions aren't a big part of my life.

    I just sort of exist without caring for anyone or anything (including myself). I repeatedly get called kind for doing minor things for others, but I wouldn't necessarily call them kind. Anger is the only emotion that I get somewhat close to feeling at times, and it's even more...

    It's a "negative neutral" feeling.

    "Negative neutral" doesn't make sense, but it's the most fitting description I could think of at the moment. Feeling empty makes me sad that I just cry about it.

    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...

    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.

    I don't really know how to explain how I feel

    right now. I guess I feel really empty and emotional, like I want to cry a lot. I also feel a little anxious. I'm confused and I just don't know why I feel nothingness. What is this? :(
