I Hug My Pillow While Sleeping

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 19,994 People

    It's just comfortable.

    Helps keep you warm when you're cold. Doesn't fart, squirm, grind its teeth, or talk in its sleep. It can't tell me it loves me & I don't asign it human traits or give it a name. For awhile I could smell my mom's perfume on the cases she embroidered & it made me sleep better...

    I hug my pillow while sleeping

    and thinking and wishing it was you. I wish it's you who's beside me before I go to sleep and it's you I see when I wake up but unfortunately it's not. Sadly, all I can do is to drown myself with thoughts of you, wishing so bad of us be together. I can just pray that you'll...

    I can't sleep because you're on my mind.

    Can I hug you instead of my pillow tonight? <3

    YASSS! I sleep on two!

    NO! Let's say 4! I sleep in the middle so my head is resting on all 4 pillows :) - I can't sleep on flat pillows! :( they have to be comfy and soft! And I have two more on the side so if I roll over when I'm sleeping I can hug them. :D I'd say the pillow is my boyfriend. :D...

    .. I hug the corner of my sheets.

    I hug the blanket. I hug a stuffed animal if available. I even "hug" myself if I sleep on my side. I'll extend my arm from the side that I'm laying on in front of me and to the opposite side of my body hugging my waist. I hug my lover if I have one. I hug to sleep. It's how I...

    I always feel so lonely

    and crave affection but I have nobody. whenever I get sad, lonely or tired, I just hug my pillow. I sleep with 3 pillows, 2 for my head and one to cuddle. it's so comfy, it's like hugging a person. hopefully one day I'll find someone to replace my pillow.

    It's not the way you would hug a toy In bed

    it's just for some reason I love to wrap my arms and legs round my pillow at night and sleep like that it makes me feel happy like I'm in a really long hug but it's so soft and warm and makes me feel save it's weird but I love doing it 😄

    It's a shame it doesn't have arms to hug me back

    because that's what I long for.

    For this reason I have more

    than 2 pillows. If I sleep in someone else's bed. I even sleep without a pillow if there's only 1 so that i can hug it. It's seems sweet for some reason, since i don't like sharing a bed. (except for my pillow)

    One night when I was younger I couldn't get to

    sleep. Everybody was just so mean and I didn't get it. That night was the first time I hugged my pillow. Ever since I usually fall asleep hugging my pillow. It also helps, with the crying.

    I don't understand how its possible to sleep

    without hugging your pillow. I've tried to plenty of times, but I just end up tossing and turning. I just feel much more safer and comfortable while hugging a pillow at night. Is it only me or?

    I have a pillow from Clannad.

    A big Dango! And I can't sleep without hugging it. It was a present from my mommy and it feels like her love is in that pillow. It feels so warm when I hug it.

    I think it's a natural thing

    for most people to crave to be with someone while they are at their weakest state, sleep. So when no one is there, we curl up to whatever feels like another human body. That's why we hug our pillows I think.
