    These six months away has been harder

    than I originally expected. Being in the military isn't an easy thing to do, the psychological aspect of it is the hardest to deal with in my opinion. I mean everything I grew up being taught is somewhat contradictory, like killing for the most part. When I think about it, I am...

    I'm in a company of few ppl

    but feel so alienated it's unreal, just not really connecting to anyone, missing having something real with ppl, to go under, to touch beneath the surface, what the hell is wrong? Is it just me?

    During my pregnancy and

    after I gave birth I noticed that almost all my friends which I had concidered to be my good friends didn't invite me to their parties or events anymore. I told them it was ok if they want to drink alcohol and I drink juice or water because I just want to spend time with them as...

    I self-identify as polyamorous,

    and I don't know anybody else who is. I know this doesn't mean there's something wrong with me, but I feel like a freak.

    My school is in the ghetto.

    As an extremely white girl, I obviously stand out. I'm not racist, but seriously . I have a total of 2 real friends, of which I have zero classes with. We have assigned tables (our 5th period class) and I have zero friends in that class. I've asked I i could switch, but she...

    I've really been hit with feeling so isolated this weekend for some reason..which of course, for me leads to a lot of introspection. I work from home. Have done for years. I know a lot of people envy that opportunity, but it is not without drawbacks either. Namely, it has really...

    I'm an introverted type.

    I'm an INFP and a dreamer. I'm living in my imagination which is different from reality. I find difficult in socializing with people. I just closely attached to my one close friend. Now, I feel desperate and I have nobody to talk to.Now, I feel different from others. I'm down.

    It's amazing just how easily solitude can slip

    into too far a distance to sustain, healthily. We did this to ourselves. We made a choice. Besides, we aren't missing out on much. Just a layer of superficiality and a consistent disappointment in others, and maybe ourselves. On the other hand, I have you misfits. The...

    Sometimes I feel so alone, and different than others around me.  I wonder if these thoughts that go through my head are normal, or if I am just different.  I go from up, to down in a matter of days.  One day I love myself, and the next, I feel like...

    I Feel So Isolated

    I don't know who to talk to. I have felt so alone all my life. I was raised by a mother who never socialized. My father lived with us but I always feared him. He isn't a very nice man. I think I was taught to fear people, which I have always feared people. Any time someone tried...

    I've been hiding lately.

    I feel lost, empty, like something is missing. I haven't spoke more than two words in days. I feel like things are better left unsaid. I almost went backwards last night. The brillo pad and bleach, turned my skin a lovely shade of pink.

    Lately, I've been struggling with feelings of

    isolation. It's not so much I am isolated, but that the number of people I can relate to has dwindled far too low. I also don't know who has changed: me or them. What I do know is that people I used to find companionship in just plain annoy me now. Normally, I would not find...

    No Connection

    I spend much of my time angry, sad, lonely, confused and desperate. I was very ill growing up, and my mother, who primarily took care of me, was remote, when she wasn’t anxious, angry and resentful. I know she hated spending all of those days sitting at the hospital with me...

    Communication is basic to our existence.

    Without it, people are truly isolated; they cannot be happy or healthy.

    When I was younger, I didnt really like hugs much, or being around people all the time - if people tried to get too close, Id kind of push them away, distance myself from them...now I regret doing that. I have friends, but not all that many, and they dont even bother...

    There's a rooftop social gathering/party,

    and the dawn fills the backdrop. The mood is young and free, but I'm cumbersomely preoccupied with sitting in a psychological corner and just staring off towards the direction of a blue city. I can see it, I swear.

    me, but I don't feel like I can talk to any of them. In the past I haven't been very open with people; I have been trying to be open, but every time I try people have ignored me. That's not really anything new, but I have been trying really hard lately. I had planned on...
