    My best friend is beautiful

    and everyone loves her, and it sucks because when I go to parties or anything with her, I always end up awkwardly standing by myself because she's all anyone ever wants.

    Guys and gals, whenever you feel alone

    or if someone makes you feel alone, just observe their mannerisms or if u r not fond of them just think of how gorgeous it would be if I just dumped this spaghetti on his/her head? At least then they'll have something good on them because they didn't talk to you. Or you can...

    the same damn loop every year. I mean I was at some point close to my cousins not any more and I dread the moment I have to go each time - going re opens the same wound again. But I go in respect to my poor aunts who have always been there for me. No one bothers to say hi, I...

    This happens so often

    for me. Too often actually. I think it's because I find it hard to disconnect from my private thoughts. I haven't minded this before. But now, I want to share myself with someone.

    Differences Can Lead To Mental Torture Now?

    I feel this way all the time.

    If I am part of a discussion about anything with my friends or whoever I almost always get ignored like I didn't even say anything at all. Nobody care what I have to say or even acknowledges my existence

    The moment I step out of my house every day I

    just want to go back inside. I feel like nothing can hurt me in my room. No judging, no expectation, no care. I have to apply for a job soon, as in a few days. I don't want to work but I have to. I guess it sounds stupid but I'm kind of scared to work.

    It's funny, if this had been any other day,

    I would have thought me experiencing happiness would be insane, but that's the thing about days, they tend to have a mind of their own. I used to feel isolated, not knowing how quickly the line between being alone and loneliness can fade. I guess I was too busy getting caught up...

    I was with my family this weekend.

    And I felt so alone that my stomach was in knots. I never touched on this with my therapist but I need to deal with this. I remember being 17 and feeling the exact same way. I wish the hell I could figure this out myself. Dammit this ****** me off

    This is most disconcerting.

    I don't want to be friends friends (if you know what I mean) with the people I work with. I am there on business. So on the odd occasion I end up at a social event, I have nothing to say to them. I don't mind in the bigger picture, but during the occasion it feels odd. To be...

    Cz no one actually understands.

    They're just around us. They don't feel what we do. But I know everyone's life is.. difficult. Everyone have different problems but if we share them to each other, maybe depression rate would decrease..

    I've noticed you usually feel

    that way either when you really know them well and they're all fighting or you don't know them very well and they're all having a good time and you're not.

    I used to feel like this all the time

    when I was younger. I could be in the middle of a congregation of people on sunday morning and still felt completely alone. I feel so blessed to now be apart of a congregation of people who care about me and my family. I feel blessed God continues to help me heal.
