I Sometimes Just Want to Be Held

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 639 People

    I often feel weary of always having to be

    strong. It is what it is, I'm dealing with bad choices I've made. I see that. I am often told how admirable it is to be such a strong person, but sometimes I'm not. I just want to fall and not have to stay standing strong to face the reality that is my life. Honestly, my life...

    I Love Being Held

    Its not really a sexual thing all the time. Being held calms me down and reminds me that someone does care about me. It gives me a feeling of security and makes you feel like your wrapped in love.

    Hugs, Touches, Caresses

    Physical contact is one of the greatest things in the world. A hug from anyone, especially those warm, tight hugs that make you smile and sigh, is just great. But sometimes it's more than just enjoying a hug or touch. Sometimes it's about needing that contact. My roommate/best...

    It's What I Crave

    Nothing can replace the comfort i'd feel while being in someones arms. It would be nice to be wrapped up with someone, it removes the empty feeling of being alone. It lets me feel like everything is going to be alright, and that someone actually cares about me. Being embraced...

    The Power of Touch

    There is nothing quite like a hug. A gentle embrace from a stranger or a friend that makes you feel like you are not alone and appreciated. The caress of a hand of a loved one that sends shivers down your spine. Sometimes we do not need word or pressure. No sex demands from our...

    I Would Love It Right Now

    Sure, yeah--I am very horny, but right now I kind of just wish I had someone to hold me and just be here with me.  Hold me and let me know tomorrow is going to be better.  Hold me and remind me that everything will work out for the better, remind me of how blessed and...

    I've Learned It In My Child Years

    I have a strong need to be held sometimes. When I feel someone's hands around my shoulders cuddling me up or holding my wrists firmly it's like my worries just go away in seconds. Such simple physical closeness make me feel protected and my diseases healed over.

    By You

    I want to sink into your warm embrace. Let your arms envelop me in your love. Feel your heart beating close to mine. Listen to our rhythmical breathing. Be still and let the magic speak. Just be with you. Silverbright.

    Often, Not Just Sometimes!

    I am a huggy-huggy type. I think it's because, growing up as a kid, I didn't get many hugs. I got structure, rules, discipline... not many hugs. So, I am way addicted to hugging and can't get enough. =p And being held is like a very cool hug, that doesn't end quickly. I was only...

    Sometimes......

    I have some wonderful friends here on EP but sometimes I wish I could be held. To lay my head on someones chest and to hear their heart beating would be so soothing.

    I'll lay my head on my pillow

    and pretend it's your chest. I'll bring my blanket up to my chin, tuck it in and pretend it's your arms that are wrapped tightly around me. Embracing me, making me feel safe, protected and loved. I'll close my eyes and imagine your hands running gently through my hair, moving...

    Sometimes I just sit in a spot

    and look up to see this blank wall. I would hear the sound of faint talking coming from the other side, as well. "What is wrong with me?" I'd mutter to myself [What if someone hears me?], "Don't worry, it's not like anyone can hear me anyway..." Sighing, I look and my hands...
