I Feel Unloved

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 45 People

    I am unloved by both of my parents.

    In exchange for their rejecting me and not loving me and my siblings, I shunned them. I am reminded everyday that my parents don't love me. My mother hasn't spoken to me in 23 years. She took too long to talk to me, so I left the family. The reasons they don't love me is based...

    Looming Love

    The fates string us along. Strumming their web and manipulating the weave until the warp and weft are tight and fitting the design of Creation . . . Some of us know the fiber we are spun with and can sense through vibration where it is best we are to go - where our matching...

    Totally Unwanted And Unneeded...

    I spend so much of my life just curled up in my bed and feeling alone. I hate my life almost 99.9% of the time. I think I am becoming agoraphobic because I hardly ever leave the house and I sometimes feel afraid when I am not in my house. I have a boyfriend...

    I Feel Unloved

    You might wonder why since I'm married. My husband has asperger's syndrome. He used to be more loving though,  but now he is just not very loving and does not show love. I have been dealing with a lot of pain lately and he has not helped me. I had to write a letter telling...

    My boyfriend is so distant with me,

    the say he talks to me sometimes as well just makes me feel so inadequate and like he doesn't want to be with me, I have to fight to get attention and rarely does he show me his feelings for me, but when he does I feel amazing but then I worry because it's a temporary bliss. I...

    Sad

    Crying & feeling awful & lonely. I really don't want to wallow on it, tomorrow's a work day & I have things to finish. So hard to get someone to love you back and care for you the way you love and care for them. So hard.

    I Feel Guilty and Unloved :/

    I don't want this to sound like the ramblings of just another girl.  Because, that's not what it is.  this isn't me having a hormone imbalance, or emotional issues.  I'm in love.  And, I'm loved back.  But, my lover doesn't know how to show his love...

    I have been single for a long time. I feel unloved and I feel like no one wants me. Doesn't matter how much attention you get, it doesn't change the fact that I am lonely.

    Sadly. I read somewhere that those who recover from homelessness have a high risk of being made so again. This does not make me feel confident for the future.
