    but more of a normal thing. Everyone feels lonely and left out sometimes.

    Many sleepless nights I feel

    so alone. There's nobody I can call that would even understand how I feel. I can be in a room full of people and still I feel like I am alone in this world. Some consider me to be a happy woman and fun mother but if only they knew what it really feels like to be me for just a...

    The Silence I Need...

    Sometimes I am not even alone, but I feel as if I were. The embrace of the solitude wraps me and I don't even realize it. When I am writing or trying to put some feeling on the paper, I embrace the solitude. The solitude doesn’t need to be a negative thing, it has the...

    Before I found EP, Lonely was just part of the

    day. It became the norm after ten years of my wife not having any physical touching due to her heart meds. My days were made up of sitting in front of the TV or finding something to do around the house. I spent almost all my time by myself and along with the loneliness came...

    Sometimes you just want to sit with some one,

    or just be around them, just to be in their presence and exist around them. You don't even have to talk to them. Just someone you care about. It's just a great feeling, just being around them. It's comforting just knowing that they're right there if you need them. Just sitting...

    I think most of us all might go through this,

    I know I desire someone who loves JESUS to share my life with, and although He is all I need I know He wants us to be happy and I am one who is meant for a LOVING Marriage and relationship with one special woman!!

    because since many years I don´t have any

    social contacts in my life except my work. On EP I just have a very few, but good friends. Sometimes I wish they would live in my area that we could meet each other. The loneliness round me sometimes is really painful.

    I've got so much on my mind, and no one I can confide in. I'm so sick of this cycle of negativity. I just want it to be over now. More than anything, I just want someone to hold me as I cry. I want someone to be strong for me, and reassure me for once. I'm so used to being the...

    There are moments when I think the house is actually moving. But it's been here since 1860. I guess it won't blow away tonight. But that wind... That ghostly howling... That multi-layered, anguished shriek... Windows rattle and groan. The frigid night streams in through unseen...

    I recently broke up with my boyfriend of a year.

    It's not that I really miss *him* (I did break up with him), but I miss having *someone*. I have to get used to being more on my own again.

    When you're surrounded by all these people,

    it can be lonelier than when you're by yourself. You can be in a huge crowd, but if you don't feel like you can trust anyone or talk to anybody, you feel like you're really alone.
