I Need a Shoulder to Cry On

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 237 People

    Ok I think I have only cried on two people's

    shoulders my entire life. The first person being my mother. The other person being my crazy ex girlfriend after my brother died. I was in such a state that I just broke down and she was there. She held me and I felt such a sense of comfort that I haven't felt for a long time...

    Every night I am just

    so sad. I scream but nobody hears me. I wave my arms but nobody sees me. I am dying and nobody is there to save me. I have so much I want to say. I have so much that I need to release. I don't know why nobody cares about me. I don't know why everyone pretends there's nothing...

    When Will I Succumb?

    I long for a moment to allow myself to feel, truly feel my emotions, to sink into the arms of someone who would let me just cry on their shoulder.  I am not allowing myself to grieve the loss of one part of my life --- instead I put on a happy face (well not truly happy...

    Need the strength of strong shoulder to cry on.

    To lean on and let out all the pain I've held in for a long time. I need the strength of a strong shoulder, to not be judgmental but understanding. After the long cry, I need my tears to be dried, to be held and assured that everything will be all right.

    It's All Just So Hard.

    With everything going on in my life, I feel I can only turn to two people, one of them moved away. I don't feel I can go the others and have a shoulder to cry on... I feel they don't care and they would just turn around and walk away... especially with the person I have always...

    Needs A Shoulder

    I need a shoulder to cry on. I wouldn't cry alone, cause it would make me saddar. Sometimes, it is essential to find someone who cares about you. I don't care who it is, but I would like a shoulder.
