I Feel Incomplete

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 281 People

    I have been married for over ten years.

    We have two kids together. I've never felt he was my other half. I can be content with him, but I want more and I never feel that way with him. I don't feel complete. I have a gut feeling who would complete me, someone I've known for a long time and we really reconnected 3.5 yrs...

    Never Reaching The End

    Sometimes I feel I've got my goals in hand and done with. But that is not the case at all. More is to come. More I must follow. Whether it be my minimum wage job, or a fun hobby I am very interested in. I just can't get to the end. Always moving forward is a good thing, I suppose...

    Incomplete

    A little something is missing. And it makes all the difference. And I don't know, don't know if I'll ever find that missing piece. Sometimes it hurts. Most of the time it hurts. But I carry on. That's all there is to it. I'm 18 years old. And I'm not accomplishing much. But it's...

    The Void

    im sitting here writing this, smokin a black & mild... I cannot escape these feelings of being incomplete... perhaps because I lack everything I need in life that I feel would make me complete... I wonder why for a chosen few life is beautiful and for others like me...

    I'm Just Sad And Nobody Deserves To Feel This Way!

    My heart goes out to everyone who feels this way. NO ONE deserves to go through life feeling this way; however, i am one person who feels it daily. I want to both encourage others to find what makes you happy AND find it myself. I know that i deserve it, but i feel very stuck in...

    When I Was Only The Young Woman At Our Place.

    I felt completely incomplete and overprotected when I was the only young child at our place. Whenever I came from school, my relatives would interrogate me for where I've went and what I've been doing. But one year after, there's a little change with how they treated me. Thank to...

    A Search? Or A Creation?

    Is life about finding or creating yourself? I do believe it takes a little of both. And well that in itself takes time. A lot of it.

    I Feel Like Something Is Missing

    I feel incomplete all the time. Like if something is missing. Like a big hole. I guess it's because my father was never here, never cared about me. I guess it's because my mother doesn't know how to love me, how to take care of me. I guess it's because I had been raped and...

    This beautiful city seems

    so empty... All the people in the world and you can still feel lonely...What's the point of having it all..without the person you love... --Sometimes you just need to start again in order to fly.

    Missing Piece

    There is a very big piece of my life that is missing right now. My heart aches from not being able to be with my love at this time. I'm working my way to be with her. I hope it will be soon. My puzzle needs to be complete to enjoy life and to be happy.

    It Wasn't Always Like This...

    Long Engagements Are Probably a Good Thing.

    I wonder sometimes if there is something wrong with me. I am married, I have a child. I am smart (I like to think more than most). I am attractive. I put others wants before myself all the time. I give up myself too easily. Now that I am getting older it is catching up to me. I...

    The Black Hole

    Where do the memories go, all those things I've forgotten over time. I think they go into a void of sorts, a black hole if you will, never to be discovered again.  My best friend will say, “remember when we…” and I have to answer, “Are you sure that was me?” because I...

    I feel like something is wrong with me, I've tried to ignore it for some time now but I just can't anymore. I'm still young, just 18 years old, but a lot of the time I just feel so unhappy. On the surface I seem to have a great life.  I have a great family, my...

    Born of a house that measures your worth,

    In figures symbolic on paper; With a quota to fill from inexorable birth That does scold the fake sybarite's caper. Just who are you with love and arms spread wide, Yet so reluctant to compete? Why, you're the slight man that never tried And you feel so incomplete.

    It just feels like something's missing.

    I don't know where I stand. I don't really know who I actually am. Nothing feels right. The person I want to be isn't the person I have been. But it's extremely hard to change. And I find that I am beginning to hate who I am. I have no one to talk to. I'm scared of myself...

    I suffer from bouts of depression.

    Some people have bad things happen to them. They have reasons to be sad. I don't, and it makes me feel incapable of handling my own problems, of taking responsibility for my own happiness. I don't know why I feel so incomplete all the time or how I can fix it. I don't know how...

    I Long To Feel Whole

    Sometime during the tender age of 16, I began longing for the day where I would find the woman whom which I could call my own and spend the rest of my life with. This feeling was brought on by the realization that, even though I did not have good upbringings, I did not want to be...
