I Feel Unloved

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 39 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...

    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...

    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...

    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 grew up in a dysfunctional family. Now as an adult I find I am terribly lonely and not able to form meaningful connections. I am terrified of growing old alone.
