    Right... Now

    There are very few people I still consider friends, though it seems more of the acquaintances I've made over the years would stop by if I needed than I ever imagined. But, that doesn't help so much when you're living alone in a new city with noone here.    Just now, all...

    When me and my friends have a discussion about

    something or when I have a problem I feel really lonely. When I feel lonely I go away from all the people around me and listen to some music.

    Lonely Drives

    I hate being alone. I get lonely very easily, and to me that is the worst. I find myself many times, driving to or from somewhere, and I will feel super lonely. Even if I just spent 5 hours with friends I will feel really down. Does this happen to you..

    I do sometimes . I look

    after my mum . When she's gone that will leave me on my own . She worries about this . I wonder what it will be like . I have no close relatives . Off course it makes me free . I can choose to do what I want when I want . But I still feel that I will need some one .

    but not been seen? It happens to me a lot! i can't speak but my hearing is perfect, but that makes me a little invisible when i am with my friends. They can talk about something and then suddenly change before i got the time to write something down to say my opinion. Sometimes...

    Why?... Why do we have emotions?

    .. Why do we feel lonely?... I'm perfectly fine with being alone I really am but sometimes I get this uncontrollable feeling like there's a hole in my chest.. I don't need anyone and don't really want anyone... So why do I feel like this?... I wish we could just shut our emotions...
