I Feel Empty Inside

    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.

    Sometimes. Even during medication

    for my depression, I feel no emotion. Like a deflated balloon. I just turned 28 and I'm so sad to share I've never been on a date or had a girlfriend. I'm trying to change now. I say "if I get rejected, just play the odds. more attempts, more chances." Deep inside I feel the...

    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.

    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?

    Have you ever felt like you are doing things

    without purpose? You do things because you are expected to do them. You aspire for things and establish connections just to feel a little bit of that humanity. Then, at the end of the day, you lay in bed feeling that none of it matters, you still feel a gaping void. Empty and...

    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

    Empty

    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...

    I have been pretty angry lately.

    ******* hate everyone. But it's my own fault. I'm chemically unbalanced. Not sleeping or eating. Getting high. Crashing. Faking my life. It's unhealthy. I'm not really coping anymore. I've allowed my dark side to take over. I'm too tired to fight it. Sort of drowning in it all.

    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...

    Have you ever felt like you don't know what's

    going on anymore? Like you don't care about anything anymore. You lost your motivation to do anything. You are confused about your feelings, and you don't know how to express it. You get the feeling of emptiness, and the feeling that no one is there for you. No one understands...

    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.

    They say its better to have loved

    and lost then never to have loved at all. However, I disagree. Cuz love gives you hope. Hope that maybe you aren't as terrible as you think you are. Hope that maybe its possible for someone as messed up as you to be happy. And then just like that, its all torn why. No...

    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.

    "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.

    The girl in the mirror stares at herself again.

    Her eyes are dull, she just stares. Her smile is fake, because she doesn't anyone to know how she really feels. She hates herself, she hates the way she looks, the way she talks, she hates way she thinks. Her skin used to be so pretty and flawless, now it's covered in ugly scars...
