    Birthdays

    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...

    Even if I have my family

    and my best friends with me; Thank God. But, sometimes I feel lonely, I want to love, be loved and feel special. I want to believe in true love, but it is hard to keep believe in. :/

    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.

    I can be in room full of people and still feel lonely.  I've always felt like I was different from everyone else and still do.  Even now, it's 1:45 in the morning and what am I doing?  Writing a story about being lonely.  Figures, huh? I don't mind my own...

    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...

    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.

    I used to feel lonely all the time,

    I had a lisp which made me very selfconscious and I never spoke to people. Recently I've made a change for the better and have a large group of friends who I feel very close to, however sometimes when I'm alone I suddenly feel very lonely again and it stops me from being happy...

    Feeling lonely right now.

    . I have nobody to talk to even though I am a bit tired. Maybe it is just the fatigue? Maybe I am just over thinking again? or am I bored? Nobody's here and I am staring at the screen. So, what now?

    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.

    Lately, I have felt so lonely.

    I had people around me but I still feel all alone. No one to truly talk to about my life and feelings. I don't think anyone truly understands me. It's the worst feeling in the world. I am so down today.

    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...
