    Life Can Be A Weird Journey

    Some people have lives that don't seem to make any sense at all. I had a father who rejected me and never spoke to me even though we lived in the same house up until I was 12 years old. I had to hide from him all throughout my childhood because when he saw me, he would hit me...

    Ok. So that's not really true.

    . But I always feel like this on weekend nights when I wanna go drink and party, it seems like no one else wants to and it's weird to me because I'm 20 and still in party mode. I just wanna go do fun, stupid ****. Is that so wrong? I want my life to be like a movie! It could be...

    I guess you could say I'm socially awkward

    but I have lived in a new place for almost 2 years now and still haven't made any friends. I am getting depressed more and more each day.

    It is better than I thought

    Everyone seems to like me and be friendly with me.  I might not have anyone to hang out with now but I will keep on joining drama club, board game club, church youth group, chorus and other things I enjoy and I know once I get to know people in these groups more and they get to...

    I went out today to meet my friends to see

    Spider-Man 2. I was walking to the front of the theater when I received a phone call. Two of them were able to get tickets but the movie had just sold out. I walked back to my car so I could go back home. I don't even know what the other friends in the group were doing since...

    It’s Friday night. I’m sitting in my

    I Haven't Had Any Real Friends Since I Was 10 Years Old

    The saddest thing about my story is that I have no clue what it feels like to have a real friend in my life. I had associates when I was in elementary school. When I was 8-10 years old, I lived in Iowa with my parents where I had a best friend, and several other friends my age...

    I think the worst part about having no friends,

    is the part where you think about when you did. Especially with a bestfriend, somebody you did everything with and shared everything with, went everywhere with. Somebody you thought would be your friend your entire life, stops being in your life. It's absolutely dreadful...

    I feel like I will never have friends in my future. It's hard to meet people when I am shy and certainly not talkative at all! I get depressed about it, especially after I come home from class and do nothing exciting like going out and have fun... I have a feeling this will be...

       I've always had some really nice friends growing up, I actually felt really good with who I hung out with, then as soon as I moved I didn't know anyone at my new school, over all I was being bullied as well, for things that were even true. I gave it time, and I did meet some...

    Well, let's just start by saying,

    I've moved around a lot. I haven't been settled in a place for almost 3 years now. Due to that, I've lost every friend I've ever made except one. However, she lives so far from me, our friendship has strained and we aren't as close as we use to be. The thing that bothers me the...

    I Have No Friends...

    All my life I have wished for a "best friend". I am tired of having no social life. I just want to have someone to laugh with or hang out with. I want to talk to someone when I am upset. I have always wanted to just have a friend. I try my best but it does not work :(

    I can honestly say I am proud of that.

    It's easy to let people get close, to trust them and to give yourself to them. I prefer the empty road. It's hard, but it's free.

    It happened again last night, that feeling. I went out on a very busy street at night and had a walk, there were clubs, pubs, cafe's restaurants, etc. The walk started out fine, when I locked my thoughts up in my own little world and keep them to myself. But I soon found out...

    Apart from the four friends I've made in the last year online, I have no "real life" friends. I've never been one to have a whole group of friends, only a few, but I lost those when I left school due to bullying in 2009. They weren't genuine nor did they really care about me as a...

    Yes I'm made fun of and all for terrible childhood memories but loneliness is great! No kids no worries, no friends-no *******, no mate-even less *******! It's all endless amazement for me! But for other people I'm sorry for your loss.

    Days Of Silence
