    I Feel Like A Ghost Or The Backup Friend...

    So ever since I was little, all I can remember is that I felt like nothing...I never self-harmed myself...Thought about it but just couldn't do it...When I was going into 4th grade, I changed schools(Mom got new job at the other school but we stayed in same house). Then when I...

    And right now, I don't

    It’s been six days since my boyfriend and I last talked over the phone. For those of you who haven’t read some of my stories about him, suffice it to say that we’re in a long distance relationship. When before we used to chat everyday, we are now reduced to phone calls a...

    I'm so sick of being ignored

    and abandoned. I know that I push people away, but all I want is for someone to want me. People always cut me out, and it makes me feel so worthless. I just can't handle being alone anymore.

    Different From The Rest.

    I have friends, but none of them would do anything for me as I would for them. I just want a friend who I can share everything with and never feel different from them.

    Not Even In A Romantic Way

    Just in a friendship over the years I've had a lot of friends but I just never like they really wanted me around. Almost like they just felt bad for me so they hung out with me in pity. I don't know if that was the reality of just my own self hatred but it sucks.

    Unwanted From Birth

    I guess it steams from child hood and feeling as if no one really wanted me but my mom, as the saying goes "that’s a face only a mother could love" at times I truly feel unlovable, as if I doomed to be a lonely old cat woman, whose only companion is her many cats. See I was...

    Is That Too Much To Ask?

    I do. Honestly i'm soo tired of being alone. No one to send a cute text to, no one to lay in bed at night talking on the phone for hours, no one to just be there. I mean I don't know if it's because I don't really have a man in my life or if it's because everyone that is in my...

    I Want To Be Wanted And Good Enough.

    I feel like nobody wants me around. When I was in middle and high school, my friends that I've known for six years would always do things together, and leave me out. I used to be a girl, okay. My grandmother always wanted me to have long hair, stylish clothing, pierced ears...

    Being Wanted

    I feel pushed out and unwanted. My family doesn't much care, my friends just leave me as soon as something or someone more important comes along and I don't have a girlfriend. The furthest I've ever gotten with a girl is a kiss, but that was when I was 14. I feel like it's...

    All I ever feel in my house

    or in my life is alone. I don't think anyone's ever made me feel wanted and I feel so alone and mentally tired. I feel like I don't deserve anything and I'm so close to relapsing I can't do this anymore.
