I Need a Friend to Talk to Openly

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 24,259 People

    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.

    Looking for people to talk.

    Someone who just wants to have a good laugh or someone to talk to when things are getting overwhelming in their day to day life. A genuine friend.

    I will be on my own for my birthday with my 2

    dogs. Am struggling to come to terms with where I have sunk to. On a brighter note at least no one can ruin it for me.

    What can I say? I'm 18,

    in college, and morbidly depressed. My girlfriend recently left me, and she was everything to me, and I feel so alone now. A little about me, like I said, I'm a depressed college student. I am a music enthusiast, and I play the drums in a blues/psychedelic rock band. I enjoy...

    I have lost all my closest friends.

    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...

    I need to change my life.

    Change is very hard. I'm a happy, healthy lady and I live in a relationship that gives me nothing. I need to start out in a fresh new life....how does one start all over again at my age?

    I don't know how to be myself.

    I always need someone or something to do to distract me from being in my own mind. I can never just sit and think I need to be distracted. I don't know how I can fix this.

    I'm not really that friendly.

    I don't have friends in school when I was young and I don't speak much. I'm always shy for no reason. It's getting boring, and now I think I want someone to talk to. :/

    Truly Alone...

    I can't stand this feeling of loneliness...people think I have so many friends because I put on a face of confidence to mask my inner demons, when in reality, I have no one. I'm sick of being the life of the party, pretending I've got everything going for me only to go home alone...

    I need someone I can laugh with. Someone I can share with. I don't want to be judged and I don't judge anyone else. But everybody needs at least somebody they can laugh, cry, vent, and be silly with. They can be who they are and feel comfortable about being open. I want that and...

    It's kind of hard to find a friend

    that you can talk about anything to them and they'll understand you. Well for me I don't have a best friend and I never really had one. I wish I had a friend that I can talk to them openly about anything. That would be very nice.

    Someone To Talk To...

    I find myself so wrapped up with trying to figure out who I am and what I want out of life. That I push people out of my life by not reaching out to them. When they reach out to me I am more than happy and willing to respond and interact. Its just that I don't reach out to them...
