    Giving And Never Receiving

    I have come to realize that friends are far and few. I, by nature, am a giver. I believe in the happiness of others and I think nothing is wrong with that....except when the others don't aren't willing to do the same for you. I use to take long journeys to visit friends no matter...

    Lately I've had a fairly constant knot in my

    stomach. It gets worse when I try to open up to people. I dealt with a long period of emotional numbness, and it seems to directly coincide with reconnecting with my feelings. But it makes me want to shut off again and so far has caused me to shut back down every time. It's hard...

    but I'm a loner, I have no one to talk to as last year my best friend of 10 years stabbed me in the back again. Friends we shared together all slowly drift to her and I never get much of a peep from them, its hard to trust because of it but I am really looking for someone to be...

    Friendless

    I used to have a lot of friends. My overbearing controlling husband has scared most of them off. I am lonely a lot so I join these web sites for friends. People I can talk to about anything and everything that is on my mind.

    even the ones I wasn't close with. I sit in this caffateria at the college and I realize we used to all hang out here and study together and laugh. Now I sit alone in the corner studying by myself and it makes me want to cry. Maybe they didn't change maybe I did... I want friends...
