    Hope?

    Loneliness is one of the more constricting emotions I experience. It’s the emptiness of being invisible in a room full of people. It’s the desolate feeling of struggling without stirring compassion. I see people move forward with their lives and I see those who are involved...

    At the end of the day no one gives a ****.

    Not friends, not family, everyone is selfish and self-absorbed. They don't really care, the only thing people give a **** about is their own ***. I feel like I have no one. No place to escape, no arms to run into. Nothing.

    It's strange I'm surrounding by people all day.

    People come to me for advice and I love giving it. On the outside I'm happy an outgoing. But deep inside I have no one to talk to. I feel as if my feelings don't count as I put all those around me first. Is anyone surrounded by people but ALONE like me?

    I live in a dark dark place.

    There's no way out of the darkness. The harder I try the deeper I sink. Nothing brings me out. I don't think anyone knows or maybe they just don't care. I stay quiet and in my room as much as possible lost in my own thoughts. I look for ways out. I don't have any friends. I can...

    I have friends—some—but either I'm too far away from them or they only make time for me when it's convenient. Or as a last resort. I sometimes get sick of feeling like I have almost no one to talk to. These days, there's only one person I really talk to a lot, and our talks...

    I've fought depression my entire life. I'm at my lowest point now. Married, but I've never felt so alone. Being lonely increases the depression, but the depression says why both trying to get close with someone? They'll hurt you or disappear sooner, rather than later. I'm...

    or don't feel it: Depression is the empty feeling in your stomach. It is the feeling of wanting to cry almost every second of everyday. It is feeling lonely even when you're around people, and wanting to be alone and at the same time wanting to feel important. It's the nagging...
