    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...

    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...

    What does being lonely mean?

    Well to me it's being by yourself With no one, no physical contact that we all crave, no one to say how much they missed you today no one remembering your birthday, no one noticing I'm still the same I'm still depressed,more than ever, no one to hug no one to kiss no one to...

    as I lay in bed and crave for company. someone to talk to, someone to cuddle with, someone to share thoughts and feeling, someone I can spend the days enjoying each others company. someone who would love me for me. even though the chances are slim it's okay to have a little hope...

    I'm an introvert. I get tired being around

    people. I hate too much talking. Can people just.. you know.. be happy and enjoy without making so much noise? LOL. I kinda miss my childhood best friend. We go to places where it's calming and peaceful and we don't talk much. We just sit there or rest. Or we eat silently and...

    I feel like this is not a bad thing

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

    But then I start to enjoy my solitude.

    It is rare that I can have the solace to just be and sort through my thoughts or just take my time taking in my surroundings.

    Loneliness is varied.

    At least, it is for me. There is the comparative kind, brought on by envy - you see people surrounded by friends when you have none. This is a bitter twinge that in some breeds resentment. Another kind is a pure desire, a want for someone to spill your secrets to when no one...

    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.

    I would like the people I care about,

    love, who matter to me, to sometimes remember my existence. It just makes me feel sad and emotionally used.

    For some reason ever

    since the beginning of week I feel so lonely, I haven't been able to talk to my friends, and family a lot. I often say because it's the stress that's coming since exams are approaching. I can't wait till the end of this month and I'll be finally free!

    Don't you hate that feeling

    I'm just in one of those moods

    where I can't sleep and I lay there pretending this is it. Pretending that was my last breath. Wondering where I'll be heading next after I'm gone. So many people around but nobody I truly connect with so even when in a crowd I feel like the only person on earth.

    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.

    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...

    Despite that I am married

    and have three children, sometimes I feel lonely. I think it's because it can be lonely living with a disability and difficult making friends.

    "You're being silly" It scares me to think of

    the amount of people unable to express themselves because of the emotionally repressed masses. Haven't we all gone through something? It's difficult finding someone who wants it, it's hard to pass it on because no one wants to hold it. It's like an old school Batman film, the...

    It descends without warning

    and surrounds you. A smokey fog, thick and oppressive making it hard to breathe and your chest hurts from the effort. You can't see what's in front of you and you can't go back. The silence is deafening. Fear seeps inside, permeates your being and steals your warmth. You try to...

    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.

    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...
