    I Just Do..

    It's hard looking in the mirror and not wanting yourself but at the same time not expecting the same thing from everybody else. Apart of me says "you might as well give up on the world because there's nobody who understands you" but I sill have this hope in my heart that reminds...

    Rejected On Ep

    Even here on EP I feel unwanted. Rejected. Most stories I write go without a reply. And when there is, it's just the same old tired cliches, that just make me feel even more isolated, rejected, humiliated, alone. I've tried real-life groups and clubs, with similar results, and...

    My husband works 10 hour days,

    5 days, sometimes 6 days a week. 9am-7pm so during like the entire day. When he is home, he's on his phone or his computer or his game system... Or in the rare occasion he is watching a movie, it's something he knows I really hate, instead of watching something we'd both enjoy...

    I said I was lonely. I said,

    I wish we could talk. I opened my heart, made myself vulnerable. U came home at 2:30 in the morning to flop on the couch and sleep. I spent my night in bed alone and unwanted. This morning I said something casually about being blown off. You apologized and said u were just tired...

    How do I feel? I feel stressed.

    I feel overworked. I feel overwhelmed. I feel unappreciated. I feel as if I don’t have any purpose on living anymore. I feel as if I am a burden to my family. I feel as if taking my own life will solve everyone’s problems and lessen the stress of everyone, especially my...

    Me Too

    I Feel Unwanted And Unappreciated

    I am 41 and some days I am ok and other days I am not ok. There were so many love stories and I felt excluded. Unwanted. Unadored. It brings me down. Men don't really look at me either and if they did, I didn't noticed them. I am ok looking. Small. Dress nice but my persona...

    Unnecessary Existance

    Someone said they feel like everyone would be better if they were gone.  Not me.  I don't think it matters if I'm here or if I'm not.  If I suddenly moved to Antarctica tomorrow, after a few weeks some people would notice my absence, but they'd soon get over it...

    It's The Little Things

    I hate myself because of it.

    It's not just that no guy likes me and stuff like that, though that is a part of it (the cheating and being used didn't really help either). But it's more that I don't feel that I matter to a single person on this Earth. I always try to be really nice and considerate. But that...

    When you realize he could have just about any

    girl he wants, and your probably not even in his "top 100" All you want is to give up, but you don't. You still tell him happy birthday in hopes of even just a smile from your long time friend.
