    People eventually just shut down.

    The key is turned and they are locked out forever. Never underestimate how someone is feeling. It will be one mistake you may regret for the rest of your life.

    just watched my partner of two years pack up

    and move out; first guy I was ever with. Glad he gone but left with a lot of insecurity and anger.

    Sometimes being by myself

    for too long creates this huge cloud of loneliness for me. I wish I had someone but on the other hand i feel like i would be bad for the person.

    Being Independent Can Be Exhausting.

    Always having to rely on yourself, in addition to having friendships sometimes be one-sided, makes me feel lonely. I always wonder when can it be my turn to have someone care and think about me as much as I do for everyone I know and love.

    But how do you meet people without looking odd?

    I mean sure, you suggest pubs, cafés etc. but let's be honest people go to these places with their friends rather than to meet new ones. If you turn up on your own and try to join in with others you're going to come across as strange. Let's be honest, these days people become...

    It's crazy... The last three weeks have

    probably been the hardest of my life.. I feel I have been totally betrayed by the person that I love the most, and now he is gone from my life. The crazy part is how my "friends" have totally disappeared. I haven't had a call or text from one in days just to check in and see...

    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.

    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...

    There are no lonelier days in my life than my birthday. The ones who are close to me often forget or just don't care about celebrating, it makes me feel so out of place and not special. Last year's birthday was pretty cool. My friends baked cupcakes, made food, and afterwards we...

    It always seems to creep up on me.

    Suddenly I feel lonely and alone. The general overwhelming feeling that no one loves me. Why does this happen? If only I could make it stop for good

    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...

    For some reason, I'm feeling extra lonely today.

    All I do is work because I feel if I have extra time, I would be even more lonely. I hope this feeling subsides soon.
