    This weekend we are supposed to go camping.

    But my mom doesn't want me to go with her because she doesn't think she can "handle me."

    It's The Little Things

    It's interesting how it's the little things that hurt the most. Friends having a conversation at the table and excluding you. An seemingly innocent comment from a workmate. It only takes something little to be misconstrued the wrong way and make me feel worthless, self...

    All Alone With No One To Talk To

    What have I done to become so unwanted? I feel there is something wrong with me like a illness that there is no cure to. I start off well but as time goes by more people find my faults and pull me up on them so I feel like a alien in a room full of supposed friends. Its just that...

    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...

    I Can't Maintain Relationships, Platonic Or No...

    I have always tried to make friends, and have never been successful. I'm never invited anywhere. Any friends I have ever made used me. And the few friends I do have that have stuck around I barely see. The only social life I have is online. And even they get sick of me. No one...

    Rejection Snowball

    I heard a comment today. "To be succesful, we must conform". The person who said it was actualy talking about buisness, but I thought, it really applies in life too. If we're different, in some noticable way, be that personality, emotionaly, physicaly, then we tend to...

    Alone For Far Too Long

    For nearly 8 years, I've been going to college. Out of those nearly 8 full years, I can only recall just a handful of people that have become my friends. And these friends do not talk to me, approach me, or go out for lunch on a daily basis. They are the kind of people that just...

    Me Too

    It is not a happy experience but I have felt this a lot. The sense that, whatever you do or say counts for little or nothing. Still, I am in good company. Although this was not intended as a religious treatise, read the melancholy words of Mother Theresa, for instance...

    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...

    My Husband Looked At A Picture Of Me And Actually Said "eww" Tonight

    There has been many times during my marriage of 3yrs that I have felt unwanted. Tonight beats all of those nights. The hubby has one of his friends over and they're drinking so I guess his "true feelings" are easier to express. We've hit a dry patch sexually here lately and I've...

    I Am Unwanted.

    I've felt this way my whole life.  Part of it is the fact that I've never felt good enough for any one person in my life.  I'm like a burden, and I don't know why.  It seems like there are people in my life who leave just as quickly as they enter, and I blame...

    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...

    who I'm pretty sure only wants me for sex. I want my first time to be with someone I've been dating for a while and I've told him that I like him, but he never said anything back. He's confusing the **** out of me. I want him so bad, but he won't make a move.

    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.
