I Feel That Something Is Missing From My Life

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,143 People

    Always have been missing something in my life,

    a void. Something you can not touch but feel inside. It is a key I have in my pocket/soul but no lock to put it into right now. My mind is hazy and I am seeking the home/soul where this key fits. Maybe one day I will find it, but for now I am just watching the wheels roll by...

    Lately I've figured out

    that a new career is something missing from my life. And I know I need to make more friends and stay in touch with them (I'm introverted). These are a good place to start. But I also have the feeling that life has more in store for me and I'm not sure what else I'm missing out...

    I always feel this way,

    and I know what is missing. Half a year ago I climbed the mountain Galdhöpiggen. This kind of outdoors life is what I run on. That is what I live for. And I have never felt like I felt I did on the top, looking out over the glaciers. It's the greatest feeling ever. I felt...

    I've been feeling this lately,

    ever since I've started High School. I just want to hug someone. I'm guessing that it's because of being in a long distance relationship. It sucks to be alone. I talk to her but not as much as I would like to. I just have this big gap in my heart that I can't fill.

    I'm So Lost Right Now

    So I've been separated from my wife since the end of July of last year. She cheated on me and we have had no such intimacy since. I'm still so torn up inside and find myself lost and confussed about everything. I want nothing more than to love and be loved and have a family and...

    I feel like being married.

    That's what's missing in my life right now. I should be married by now, or at least be with someone I love and loves me. I'm single, and that's not where I want to be. I'm missing my other half. and my biggest fear is that this is my life. and who knows for how long. I know I...

    Do you just ever wake up to an empty house full

    of silence, on the weekends its feels like me and the walls have built some sort of friendship. I don't know if this is loneliness or do I just feel empty for no apparent reason.

    There is in every true woman's heart,

    a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity, but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity. - Washington Irving Quotes

    I have been feeling this way

    for awhile. I thought I'd find it at church, but that seems to be a flop. I have searched myself to figure out what it is I am missing. Maybe it is a friend. I have not ad a best friend in years.

    I'm at uni now. I feel unfulfilled.

    This may sound silly,

    because it's not something people would say I need. However, I long to have a good group of friends, best friends that are always around. I want them to be fun loving people. So many people in my life are boring and bring me down. I want to live my life as a young woman and...

    My husband died nearly 6 years ago.

    I miss him so much and I miss his companionship and someone who cared about me. Someone who I meant something to. I always said I would never need or want anyone else in my life if something ever happened to him. But now I just miss being important to someone.

    Seduced By The Image Of Reality

    When I would look through magazines as a small child, I used to think that there must be a magical world somewhere where everything looked--and was--perfect. I could see pictures from it in those pages, the smoky air of dimly-lit rooms heavy with drama as the young models lounged...

    That Someone Is You

    I don't know where you are or what happened to you. I don't know why you left. I just know that my heart is breaking. I wonder, are you sick? Are you lonely? Are you even alive? I fear one day that you will disappear and I will never know what happened. Is this that day? Is this...

    Why does it seem that some people including

    The Puzzle The Enigma

    Something's missing. It always has been. I think no one really knows me. The ugly parts are pretty hidden. I don't like them, but I admit that they are there. I don't trust anyone. I want to trust, desperately. I want to show all my hidden desires and weirdness and to be...
