I Feel So Alone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,311 People

    I sometimes wonder if God is testing me.

    I know, it might be an odd thought but it's something I think about while I lie awake at night. Darkness just envelops me and I want to see the light at the end of the tunnel but I just can't no matter how hard I try. I struggle with so much, being in a wheelchair, dealing...

    I feel left out with everything.

    I'm in college and always find myself biking or walking around the city with just myself all the time. I talk to a few people on campus but I really don't hang out with anybody. it really gets to me every night

    I dont have any friends anymore.

    I used to in high school but we all just drifted apart. The last two people i stayed in touch with verbally abused me, so i cut ties with them. I dont go to school or have a job, but even if i did i have poor social skills in person. But when you try to make friends on the...

    I See All These People...

    ...and I want to help.  I do.  I read of someone feeling lost and alone and I want to instantly put myself on the back burner and help them feel better.  I think, sometimes, that it heals me to heal others.  But here's the thing.  I'm tired.  I'm...

    My Own Doing

    I no longer have friends.  There is one person I consider a good friend, but we have never met irl.  I'm married but that is very strained.  I don't want to get close to him again because I know he will just break my heart as usual.  I have family...

    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...

    I feel like nobody could understand me.

    Even I don't understand me. My problems effect my relationships, my friendships and my family, I just push them all away. It's easier that way, I can't disappoint them any more.

    I wish I had a best friend.

    I'm missing that girl closeness, the sisterhood. My closest friends have since moved. I'll be sitting around watching Sex in the City and thinking to myself "I want that." Craving some female realness.

    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 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...
