I Hate Being Alone

    Right now I'm really alone.

    All of my friends are asleep and the app I use to help me stay sane and talk to people (talklife) is currently down. I feel really nervous and on the edge of a panic attack. And my dermatillomania has been really kicking me in the *** with urges this week. I don't know what to...

    I just wish I had someone to talk to .

    Like possibly a boyfriend or a friend who's always there. I haven't had a boyfriend for almost year a now, which is really weird for me. I want one but then again I don't want to fall in love and get hurt. I hate that feeling of being so attached to someone and then out of...

    I'm fifteen and have never had a real boyfriend.

    It drives me crazy. It sucks to see most of your friends dating and no matter what you try you are still alone. Always alone.

    I hate spending time by myself.

    . Don't get me wrong there are times when I need alone time,but I only want this time to happen by my own doing not by people being too busy to hangout.. I know it makes me selfish -_-" I wish I could change

    I hate being alone in the darkness,

    I Hate Being Alone But I Am Doom To It.

    I have been alone for 24 years and i didn't know that there is a higher disadvantage of this kind of routine in one's daily life. I am asking myself wither this thing is inborn or not, however, i always ended up to nothing. I want to be around with people, get to know them...

    I feel like I've worn out talking to my current

    friends about my problems but I have nowhere to go to and I try not to do it often. I always stress them out after a point and they leave after insisting it was okay. So I feel alone in times like this. When I feel sad or I just got out of an argument with someone. Or angry...

    I Hate Being Alone.

    I hate the feeling of being alone. And not just any kind of alone, but COMPLETELY alone. Like when you lose your best friend, or when all your friends seem to want nothing to do with you, or when your laying in bed at night, wishing someone was laying next to you and holding you...

    Is it bad when your heart constantly aches

    and that's all you feel. Not happiness, love, and anything else. Just painful, empty aches.

    I think its called monophobia.

    The fear of being alone. I've always just thought that it was normal, that feeling you get when you're alone. I found out recently it wasn't. When I'm alone I get this sudden jolt. I start panicking and my emotions get the better if me. Its usually the urge to cry. Its worse...

    I hate feeling alone.

    I try so hard to make new friends, and I am incapable. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. My best friend and I are slowly drifting apart and it kills me. I don't know what else I can do, but I hate feeling worthless.

    It's like there's an empty hole in my body

    waiting to be filled in order to carry on through life. Most of the time that hole is being filled with my ex boyfriend. Terrible, I know. I can't seem to shake it and move on. Why do I feel like I need him to suck the life into me?

    If I'm ever alone, I instantly try

    and find something or someone to be with. Sometimes I get my wish and sometimes not. Luckily, I've never had any suicidal thoughts, just the bottomless pit of anguish when I get a little lonely.

    I need to have contact with people. Too much time alone and I start thinking dark things, mostly about myself. No, not suicidal, or homicidal, but still dark. It feeds a loop, I think dark things, they make me sad and feel lonely, I feel lonely and think dark things. I'm always...
