    I do not mind being alone,

    but I cannot handle being abandoned. When a friend leaves my side or someone decides to just stop existing in my life I am crushed. My heart takes a direct hit and my soul crumbles.

    People have often left me

    when I need them most. So I'm really scared that everyone I know is just gonna leave me one day. I hate to be alone. I'm afraid of that too. But I'm always alone. All of my friends are at college, I don't have a girlfriend, and all my family does is make me feel like **** and I...

    I have an intense fear of abandonment.

    And I'm unsure when someone assures me that they won't just leave me one day. People shouldn't ever worry about me leaving, I never leave and I'm as stubborn as a stump. It's you that needs to keep those words that you've said to me

    I'm not really dependent on people

    but you could say that I have close ties with them. The thought has always been on my mind since I was very young, probably around 14 or 15. My parents turned against me when I came out of the closet. When the word got out at school it became my worst nightmare. I was either...

    I have been sad for a very long time.

    When I was eight years old, my father left my mother for another woman, thus destroying my family. I cannot explain how this felt, because I was barely able to process the emotions, being so young and having led a fairly sheltered existence. The best I can do is this: it was...

    Maybe it's just I try too hard.

    .. Fall too fast... I just always want them to be there and I can't get over it. All I ever feel is the overwhelming feeling that it's all going to end... Maybe it already has... It's just something I need to get over.

    My parents split up when I was 7 years old.

    I remember a lot about their divorce; there are things that still make me sad to even think about. I saw my mom cry so many times, her dreams of a family liquified. Her tears were like drops of hope and the more she cried the less she had left. I don't think I could survive...

    An All Too Real Fear

    One of my all too real fears is one of abandonment. No I didn't come from a broken home nor was I abused but somehow early in life - probably in something like high school, I was told by someone that all those who I called friends were just masquerading. I was told they would...

    The short animated film The alchemist's letter

    beautifully translates the tale of feeling of abandonment and love. Not a wasted frame where each piece holds some form of symbolism, emotion and a tale of it's own. In my hopeless romanticism, I see the narration of the wondrous child but a reverie of the Alchemist of what he...

    It's so socially crippling

    that all of the relationships I form now are intentionally shallow. Temporary. Human shaped Band-aids for the gaping holes left by parents, siblings, childhood friends, and lovers alike. Being abandoned has made me into an abandoner.
