I Feel Empty

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 999 People

    Day was been a hard day!

    The empty feeling is almost to much to handle! I need that full feeling inside me again. It was a slow day at work and the weather stopped me from going out and picking cars! I always plan to be out on days like this. The rain wasn't stopped so I've searched the inner wed most...

    Today is my birthday.

    Somehow these past days felt colorless and obscure, although it's been sunny outside, and those trees are glowing in bright green. Somewhere along the way, I turned into a gray robot, I work all day to pay my debts, my life. When my shift is over, I do nothing but wait for...

    Sometimes I browse through Facebook

    and seeing my friends going off and doing great and wonderful things and how they hang out with each other. Meanwhile I stay at home doing nothing, and I just feel my stomach drop. Then the negative thoughts come.

    It's walking home everyday

    and feeling like I haven't really gone anywhere or done anything, though I was out the whole time. Doing something. Or, I suppose, realizing I haven't said a word at all for the whole day. Not hating anything, not really. Not despising anything, except for the noise. Finding...

    I'm finding myself empty again.

    I am scrambling for something, even if it's temporary, even if it's the only reason to talk. I wake up and slowly find myself succumbing to it, gently lulling me into a feeling which envelops all of me. Even if it makes me question what I am anymore, what I was before and who I...

    So. X texts me for the second time

    since June. She asks me the same question: "Hey ______ how's everything going? I hope everything is going well but I have something I need to ask you." The first time, in June when she asked me this, my mind instantly went to the pics... the pics I sent her boyfriend maybe two...

    Dust To Dust.

    Silently my mood redress, tangled thoughts seem in a mess, the mind unkind tries to tease, mixed emotions like to squeeze, light fades from gold to grey, particles of dust float and sway, along a beam of hazy view, tears of rust slipping through, beyond the echoes feel...

    Tonight, I suddenly went into a burst.

    I messaged my previous ex girlfriend with hateful messages like saying what's on my mind all this month. You know what, this is what she said: "Okay, this is the last time you will ever hear from me. Please, don’t message me anymore after this. Honestly, I don’t owe you a...

    I Know Why

    I don't feel empty all the time, but enough to make me doubt. I know why it is, and what it comes from. Yet it doesn't change the feeling when it's there. It feels like the lack of everything that is important, and stays only the shallow things. It's like all what is essential...

    I'm Scared

    I am really scared about this.  I have this chronic emptiness.  I don't know how to make it go away.  Nothing seems to be able to fill this void.  I am terrified of living this way forever.  It's a horrible feeling and I wouldn't wish it upon anyone. ...

    When you feel so hollow.

    You don't have strength for anything, anyone. You want it all to end. It's like a dark, suffocating abyss. You want to get out, but don't know how. No one will help pull you out of it. And sometimes, no matter how hard you try to be strong for yourself, your own strength and...

    Just woke up this morning,

    realizing the things I do in my life don't make me happy. Getting a good grade doesn't make me happy. Impressing my parents doesn't make me happy. My life is as boring as a stone wall. I'm not sure what to do about it either. It all just seems pointless. I could distract myself...

    for something to fill the empty spaces: I live alone, I don't have friends here, I don't know my community, where did everyone go? Searching feels like my new religion, looking for better that I don't deserve. I'd just hoard it and wait for someone to walk by. Let me tell you...

    Often I find myself laying in my bed just

    waiting. I don't ever want to get dressed or leave my room, but I have to. I watch sad movies to pass the time and I always cry. Frankly, I'm always on the verge of tears. I don't know what's wrong with me, I have nothing to be sad about. I guess I just feel alone.

    I never really knew what people meant when they said that they had an empty feeling inside them until I had it myself. I didn't know that it was possible even to be so incredibly un-emotional.. I can cry, and laugh and smile and frown whatever but I truly don't feel a thing...
