I Sometimes Feel Very Alone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,386 People

    Some nights. When all around me are asleep.

    I sometimes feel that there's something missing. When you can't sleep and it's 3 in the morning, that's when I'd like to cuddle my other half. But there isn't one. So you wrap the covers around you tight. Close your eyes and hope you dream of a love long since gone. Or maybe...

    Always.

    Not the way you feel when you're in the middle of the woods and there's nobody around. But being in a room full of people and being completely disconnected, to watch and listen to entire conversations and be ignored, to have something that i think is clever to say and no one to...

    I moved across the country with at the time my

    best friend. It's been three years and I have yet to make any close friends. I feel alone. For a long time I wanted to go back home. But now I realize how alone I was back home as well. There was a perception change for me. I always assumed people liked and wanted to be with me...

    There's this feeling I have,

    that I've never been able to shake. It's down deep, somewhere in my soul, and it's empty and alone... I've never been able to fill it.... But I've always felt it somehow.It comes alive in the night. I mean, it's always there, but especially at night. Like tonight.Sometimes I...

    This is mainly because people don't want to

    talk about the big stuff. People just be scratchin' the surface of everything. Everything is superficial. Everywhere I go. And I sure am getting tired of it. I've changed completely to who I was a few years ago, and I believe that my perspective on life has widened. It's hard to...

    I feel like I don't have anyone to talk to.

    I want to tell someone but I also don't want to put the burden on them by telling them my problems. I wish I had someone I could talk to and that they would give me advice or what they would do in my situation.

    What I Am Starting To See.

    I used to feel like I was the only one who understood who I was. The only person to see things the way I do. What I am starting to understand is that the way I see things is the real me. The part of me that I have been searching for. No one can tell me what I am. No longer can...

    I can't explain it. Sometimes I feel like I am

    alone and slowly drowning in my emptiness. It's weird, because I have a boyfriend who adores me and a family that cares for me ...but I feel that something is missing.
