I Feel So Alone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,448 People

    I think I've always had social anxiety.

    When I was younger, most people actually thought I was mute (with the exception of my family and a few close friends). It got better with time, and that fact that I've never had many friends hasn't ever bothered me too much. But sometimes loneliness changes things. Now I kind...

    I feel so alone. I guess I should be going

    through a lot, as I'm a teenager, but these trials keep piling up and they're becoming a huge, huge burden. I am trying to be happy and I'm also trying to be there for my friends, but it's hard when I feel like I'm crumbling to pieces. Although I have my friends and family to...

    Blackest Abyss

    I sit alone in this dark abyss that I once called life. It once was a beautiful painting but now only the ripped canvas remains. I remember having hopes and dreams but day by day they have faded to darkness. I tried so hard to be what they want and lost myself along the way...

    I can't take it. It seems completely unbearable.

    At this moment I feel like I need to burst out of my skin and run far far away.

    I Don't Matter

    Today I realised I'm visable when someone shoved past me... But I don't matter to anyone. No-one know's I'm here unless they need something and as I've grown older I have lost my friends. I considered my personality; maybe I'm boring because I prefer reading a book than going...

    Everywhere I go I end up alone.

    Things work, seem OK, I meet friends as they travel then eventually it's back to nothing. Nowhere to go next, I've tried everything. Even once I found the job I'm passionate about I don't know how to get it going. All out of ideas and energy. Just done. Almost seems like this is...

    I used to be happy, don't get me wrong.

    I used to love laughing, and smiled a hundred times a day. I used to surround myself with good happy people. Now, It's not the same I'm not happy, I cry most of the time. I hardly laugh, it just feels fake. I isolate myself and shut all of them out, because what's the point? I...

    Everybody celebrate the celebration of flowers. Our local festival. My family, friends, relatives, near and dears..everyone. Even in my home town or aboard, that not effected to their celebrations light up. But me..nobody with me. Really feel so bad and so alone.

    This is my first attempt to put my feelings down in words. I have been feeling down and unable to pick myself up lately and I have tried to figure out why. It would be foolish to self diagnose but I wonder if I might be grieving my mom passed away over 25 years ago,and I did'nt...

    Its Weird, But When I Am Alone...

    Its weird, but when I am alone, i don't feel alone. When I am trying to make connections with other people I feel alone. Its like out of sight out of mind with me. If I don't know there are people immediately about me, I don't think about being alone.

    Jealousy. Envy. You can give this feeling many names, but i could never feel this way. The right word would be 'hurt' because i could feel the pain right there in my heart. A physical pain. Too painful to ignore. It knocked the breadth out of me for a while. I would feel...

    I know my struggle isn't really an incredible

    one, but at the moment I need to be with myself and not rely on the petty approval or disapproval of others. Avoiding issues does NOT make them go away but sometimes it gives one peace of mind.

    A friend there for me always, so that I can rant to them if I need to, and joke around when in better spirits. I feel so alone and I feel like nobody wants to even try to befriend me, seriously befriend me, not try to date me. :/

    hug or have any kind of intimate contact. We are roommates in every sense of the word. She has pretty much dragged me away from my family and friends over the years, Pray that things will change but God doesn't seem to care. Just wish I had someone to talk to.
