    within me or is this the way it's meant to be? I'm trying not to give up but it's becoming more difficult.

    Walking Dead

    Everyday that passes I slowly feel my spirit dying. No more crying, no more pain, just empty. So many people hurt me, leave their mark and leave. Asking "why me" is pointless. Trying to understand what my role is leaves me more confused. When many things keep happening from...

    I do not know why I have this void in my

    personality. Something is missing. It is an unnerving sensation of disconnect that seems to dominate who I am. The shell I am living in is only the projection of who I once was, I cannot shake the jaded streak that threatens to engulf every aspect of my existence. I am alive...

    I Don't Know Why

    Maybe because I am just exhausted. Maybe because I am always giving to others and need to give to myself. But deep down I am feeling nothing. I guess this is a good thing in a way because it allows me to get on with my life while my hubby's is away. Lets just hope when he comes...

    I fantasize about what comes

    after death, like all the possibilities of what happens after you die. Like maybe all your problems just melt away and your existence makes sense. And you are greatest with paradisal feelings to comfort you at any time. That would be nice

    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 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.

    So Young

    It would be our 19th anniversary on Tuesday June 12th... WHY do I feel so alone and Empty inside. Just so SAD that GOD took her away from me when she was so Young. And I know in my heart that we would still be together.

    I don't see the point of loving It's not

    that I'm scared of getting hurt Or that I believe that love always ends in pain But what does it get you? After caring for someone so deeply, just to have it ripped away- That's what happens after death. So what's the point?

    where it feels like there is a gaping whole where your stomach or soul should be. Just filled with nothing. When you can't feel your heart beat and your head feels cloudy. I may not have that feeling all day, but I have it at least once everyday. For me, that is a hard thing to...

    I can mask it; and maybe have a little happy moment now and then. But these days feel dark and closed in. I changed my life; for what should have been the right reasons; only to have everything I had done thrown back in my face, and now I am left broken and empty and some days I...

    Human emptiness. Have you ever read the Ian

    Fleming novel "Quantum of Solace" (no relation to the film, besides the title). It's about a man whose quantum (quantity) of solace (humanity) ran out. He lost the human element, lost emotions, and lost the ability to feel or sympathize. I feel very much the same at this point...

    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...

    Like I'm about to float away. And even though I desperately seek someone to keep me grounded, I don't expect people to care. I live inside my head. Maybe I'm just trying to fill the void with scenarios and analysations to pass the endless time. What am I living for if not for...
