    Like A Barren Wasteland.

    I always feel so empty and annoyed. Pissed and nervous. Angry and upset. Lost and alone and so many more emotions that I can't put into words. It's definitely a genetic thing I see these exact traits in my father. Even though on the outside I look like my mother I'm pretty sure...

    I miss feeling loved

    and wanted and appreciated. I don't receive any of that from anybody these days and it makes me feel so bare, so cold. What I really need is a hug. Some kind of display of affection from anybody at all. Or maybe even just a greeting. Something that shows that I was being thought...

    I Need Some Serious Advice From Someone/anyone

    Let me just say hi and I thank anyone taking the time out of their day to read and or comment on my personal story. My story begins as a child, so without writing a 32 page novel I will keep it simple, I wasn't what my parents wanted. My mom and dad split when I was under the age...

    I feel that often.It's not sadness, or pain-- just emptiness.It doesn't hurt which is good, but it doesn't make me happy (for obvious reasons.)I wonder if I will ever overcome it.

    How Much Longer?

    I've felt some sense of emptiness for as long as I can remember, but there are times, like now, when the "hole" as I call it, is so big I feel that it will envelop me. I feel so uncomfortable, almost sick. I cry out, but no one hears...I don't think any one really cares. I'm...

    I Feel This Way At Times

    I feel empty inside. Its when I am not in the mood to do things. I hate it when I feel empty inside. Its not the best feeling at all. Its also when I just want to be held. I would like Jack to be the one that holds me. I am feeling a little bit empty right now. I don't know why I...

    How I Beat The Feeling Of Emptness.

    I have read all of the stories on this thread (6 at this writing). Here is what helped me to overcome it. I have battled depression for as long as I can remember. A big part of this is not wanting to do anything. No energy, no motivation. I was teaching computers at the time...

    I just feel like my life has no purpose,

    no meaning. No1 really cares in this world, you come into this world by yourself and you leave by yourself, nothing else matters. Sure theres love and all that crap, but love cant last forever, eventually the human being gets bored and youre left alone again, people die, people...

    Emptiness hurts so deep

    that I cant find the energy to go to the gym anymore. Maybe a local bar and a bottle of beer might relax me a bit. Call me Mr lonely

    I can't deal with this anymore.

    Everything is becoming so difficult and the emptiness inside of me is painful. It feels like there's a hole inside of me that can't be filled. I'm so done with this; I am so done.

    Today I woke up from a really weird dream.

    I don't know what it was about the dream, but it really caused me reevaluate a lot of things. I just feel really empty inside. It feels as if nothing really matters anymore. There is no one that I talk to that can make me happy or bring me excitement. I just feel like all my...
