I Feel That Something Is Missing From My Life

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,486 People

    Why does love feel so good,

    but it hurts so bad! I love the feeling of loving someone unconditionally but it hurts so bad when they crush your heart and trust. I guess I'm weak when it comes to love.

    I don't feel like my life is getting anywhere.

    I can't seem to get the motivation I need to keep driving myself. There's not much more to it really..

    Why does it seem that some people including

    myself tend to go through life alone? Even when I have been in a relationship I still felt alone, unfulfilled and unhappy. I guess the good thing about getting used to dissapointments in life is that you learn to notice serious flaws in situations a lot sooner. But, still, it...

    Good Luck Or Bad Luck

    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.

    I've felt like this for years.

    It's frustrating!!! I've tried to take different paths, to see if I can fill this void but so far nothing. I'm constantly trying new things to see if something will just fall into place. Sometimes I fear that the thing missing from my life is me.

    I have a thought about our own life

    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...

    With all the things happening in ;life

    and the behavior of my wife, I believe that something is missing from my life. I realized that it was the SMILE I used to have, and I don't know if it is going to come back again, the real me- what I was a CHEERFUL PERSON!!!

    I come from a stable middle class home

    Something or someone.

    I don't know. I'm not looking for love or anything. I just feel so lost. Like I don't have purpose. Like I don't make a difference in this world. I wish something meaningful would happen and give me the kick up the arse I need. Everything seems so flat right now. I laugh but I...

    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...

    Seduced By The Image Of Reality

    Breakup

    It was cool, breezy, a hint of autumn mixed with the remnants of what had been the summer my life changed. Not a sappy love story, I am certainly no prince charming but something real. Those who say love is intangible have never felt love so real you can touch it, caress it, and...
