I Feel Unwanted

    The feeling is slowly creeping back in.

    . Maybe it's true? Maybe I am unwanted. My suspicions are getting more and more confirmed everyday.. I'm smart enough to know, but choose to be ignorant and think that maybe there is still a chance that you do want me, that you do love me. But reality is I don't think you do love...

    I'm 31 and my last 9 birthdays have been spent

    alone. I do get one or two texts, wishing me a happy birthday. But that's it.

    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...

    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...

    I really don't understand.

    I try so hard to make everyone around me happy. I will jeopardize my happiness to make my peers happier. I never get that attention back. It's like I'm invisible to the world. I will never mean anything to anyone. I could fall off the planet and no one would even bring my name...

    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...

    Oh I know I'm unwanted.

    Sh*t! I use to think that there's something wrong w/ me either I'm not attractive, no personality, etc the list goes on but I think it's a good thing for me. No one bothers me. No one talks to me. No drama! No anything. It's just me and I can live with that.

    Just feel like this all the time.

    Whether I am with my friends or not... even with my best friend. I just feel like I am here just to be here.... not wanted. It is wrong to feel wanted?

    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...

    Feeling unwanted is one feeling I know to well.

    Sitting in church with many "friends" and none of them want to talk to me. They all sit there and whisper about me instead of talking to me. I've never considered myself an awful person to be around but maybe I was incorrect. No one wants me around. I include myself in things...

    People say they won't treat you differently,

    but they always do after you let them in and tell them all of your secrets. No one wants to be my friend after I tell them how truly broken I am. I ******* hate people!

    I feel like people only want to talk to me

    when they are bored and have nothing else to to do or no one else to talk to. They don't want to talk to me because they enjoy talking to me, I'm like a last resort.. But for me it's better to have someone to talk to rather than having no one to talk to.

    I think my current department wants to kick me

    out already, and nobody probably wants me on their team. So I'm just really stuck wherever pathetic position i'm in and i feel like quitting but of course I can't. I'm gonna try my luck tomorrow, see if my letter will push through with its purpose. Please pray for me. :p

    I guess I've heard people say they like me,

    but why do I strongly feel like I have no friends. I feel lonely as ever. If I'm liked why don't I have at least one close friend. If I left earth it wouldn't really affect anybody. If so they'd move on.

    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.

    We kiss, we touch, we laugh,

    we play, yet still at some point you will start pushing me away. You do it some days, and there's a shift in the air. My chest feels crushed and I dont know if you care. I know you are sorry and you are just afraid, but that doesnt change anything, im still in so much pain.
