I Need Someone to Hold Me When I'm Sad

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 485 People

    Please Hold Me

    I am so sad. And no one ever held me as a child. My parents were abusive. I crave being held. But I isolate from people. I am ugly, 60 years old, and feel very much alone. And can't stop crying.

    I Don't Know If I Can Deal With This Rubbish Anymore...

    To distract myself from the pain I have become very wound up in the 'Sherlock' fandom, and trust me, it really has helped. I have a couple of good RP partners, even. One has become one of my best friends, we've met in person before but she lives all the way in Iowa and we both...

    If Only For A Second

     I wish I had someone….   It’d be nice to have someone just hold you when you not feeling at your best. Sure, you have your parents, siblings and friends, but I want someone else to be there for me.   Not a boyfriend, but a really good...

    I Need A Hug More Than Ever

    I haven't felt this lonely in a very long time.  And right now I need someone here with me, just to hold me, to hug me, to love me.  I have found myself stuck in a depressed state that I just can't shake.  It all started yesterday.....I found out that a good...

    I Do

    I need someone to hold me when I am upset, when I am sad, when all I want to do is cry. I need someone to hold me and make all the pain go away. I wish I had that. I miss it.

    Right Now.

    I am hysterically crying.  I know I've got to regain my composure before my mom gets in the door from work, because if she knew what was wrong she'd make jokes.  I am more scared than I ever have been in my entire life.  The worst part is that I have no way of...

    Just Once~

    Sometimes I just need someone to hold me and tell me "Everything will be okay." I just need someone to just hug me instead of asking "What's wrong?" Like just cuddle me and let me cry into your shoulder. Don't say anything and just hold me tight. Kiss my forehead. Never let go...

    Even If They Didn't Speak a Word

    Hugs help extremely.. So holding I bet would be so much greater. Just the feeling of their arms around me would lift my spirits. Suprisingly only my dad hugs me. Usually it'd be the mom right? But he does occasionally.. When I'm going to my mom's. They help a little, but they're...

    Being sad is one thing

    but having someone to hold you and make you feel better is all I want. I want the one person I can let go my emotions around and know that everything will be okay... Damn, I want a man lol 💑

    I Feel Like I Don't Matter

    I think this might be off topic for this experience lol. People seem to like me at work. I can hide my feelings well there. I can go out to places by myself and some women can look at me and give me a small smile. It feels like they know I hurt just by looking at me. Sometimes I...

    I Don't Want My Husband to Hug Me

    Our relationship has changed. I feel like he is more like a father, than my spouse. I don't like him hugging me, touching me, anything!! I love for my children to hug me. I find their hugs, comforting.

    Hug Me When I'm Sad, But Hug Me Cos I'm Special

     I'm not hugged often, infact human contact is rare. And I am often sad and often confused and often lost in the chaos of life where i don't know where i'm going, what i am or what i'm meant to be doing. I sometimes feel my life is pointless though i am not depressive in the...

    A Hug Is All It Takes.

    For me, hugs and cuddles are important. Whenever I feel sad or lonely or whatever, a hug can be all it takes to cheer me up. And though I like talking about problems I have or htings that annoy me or make me feel small, sometimes just a simple hug or someone to hold me can...

    There isn't anyone to accomplish this with/for me.  I'm all alone and it won't change.  The cat will only tolerate cuddling for so long.

    Sometimes I'm just all talked out.  Physically and emotionally I'm drained.  The tears keep flowing and just won't stop.  My friends always want me to talk about it so I can get it out of my system.   That's all I've been doing.  Talking...

    Never Thought I Did

    At least that's what I told myself for years and years. Made an art of not needing to be held. Which was good since I never got held. Very easy to deny yourself something you don't have. But then one day... tears were falling and I hurt, physically all over, and I was held...
