I Feel Lonely In a Room Full of People

can't seem to connect with anyone 472 People

    Alone

    I always feel lonely in a crowd. As much and as hard as i try to push myself to "fit in" it doesn't work. It kind of feels sometimes as though people know Im the quiet one in the group and then someone will say "smile" or "she's the quiet one " which for me makes it worse. I hate...

    This Is Not Good

    I feel bored and lonely today. I hate this day. I feel all the people and things around me are my enemies. This is not good. I can not take this anymore. I want to go to the place where I'm the only person far away with my phone and my guitar. I really really hate this day. This...

    I feel like everyone seems to have someone to

    talk to except me. I have friends, but they're all better friends than me. I'm no one's best friend.

    I think it's more of the multiple conversations

    going around than it is just feeling lonely. People don't usually want to speak with you if you don't have anything to talk about.

    The One Who Is Not

    No matter how much people i am with, at the end of the day, I always end up feeling the emptiness inside off me.Sometimes I feel lonely and the need for someone to truly understand me. Someone that I can speak my heart to and tell all my secrets and thoughts.I am one of those...

    It Is So Ironic

    I think that seeing people with other people it really defines how Lonely I am. I never feel comfortable when there are so many others around. I think it is all the energy, it suffocates me. I feel totally exhausted with the small talk you feel you have to make in those...

    You try not to look like an anti social,

    depressed person. So you just float around, trying to join a circle in conversation. If they have tables of food and drinks I'm set. Then if a convo gets awkward take a sip of your drink haha

    First, why can't we edit our stories on here

    i don't trust people at all. When I am in public, I see stick figures. I absolutely feel no emotion and that no one cares if I am here or not. Everyone is just walking around in a daze maybe waiting to prey upon one another!

    I'm usually pretty quiet around people I don't

    talk to or know and like in a lot of my classes at school, I usually don't talk to many people. And it sucks because I love having friends and talking and having fun, but this year really sucks and I can't wait til it's over! Like in my English class, we're going to be able to...

    I don't like talking to many people.

    Sadly, I can be prejudiced. I wish I knew how to be more open and accepting of all people instead of feeling impatient and disappointed by many people I see.
