    Lonely Even Though Not Alone

    I Know I Have Friends Who Love, But I'm Still Alone..

    I have friends who would do anything for me, the problem is that several years ago i convinced myself no one cares and that any kindness anyone shows me is just to humour me.  I've not been able to convince myself otherwise since.  In itself that makes me feel lonely...

    All The Time...

    I am feeling lonely all the time. Even when I am around people, I still feel alone, All the time. its the worst feeling in the world sometimes to have. I would rather feel anything, other than lonely.
