    I Feel It

    I believe i can literally feel my heart ache from loneliness sometimes. It's getting harder and harder to believe that I'm not going to die alone.

    All i can see is darkness.

    There is complete nothingness. I feel like people can see through me as though I am a walking spirit. I don't matter. Nothing matters and so why feel anything? I am too tired to feel. And so the days just blend together into one never ending shade of gray. I punch thing...

    Yesterday my best friend shot himself.

    He lived beside me too. At first I couldn't believe it, but I knew it was true. I've never experienced this kind of sadness in a while.

    I agree loneliness is painful

    but not as much as stepping on a Lego. It's hell on earth. Not even satan would be cruel enough to create that monstrosity

    Everyone feels lonely at some stage

    but no one deserves it all the time . If u see someone by themselves sit with them I know this is something we learn in school really young but it's so true .

    There's A Difference Between Being Alone And Being Lonely...

    I quite like being alone. I've always been a bit of a loner, and I enjoy my time to myself. If I'm around people for too long, I really start to crave some time alone. I'm not a lonely person. I very rarely feel lonely, even when I am alone for long periods. But sometimes...

    Have you ever loved someone

    who didn't love you back? How about that person faking 2 love you and then out of the blue breaks up with you and leaves you. Guess what though? That's not the worst part!!!!!!! Not only did she pretend to love but.......she tells that she wants to be together with you someday...

    It's to the point I look forward to bedtime all

    Loneliness

    Im just lonely. When I'm around friends I can't help but to be envious of their intimate relationships. Why is it only me, why when I like someone so badly they dont notice. I'm so tired of being alone, just to feel the warmth of someone else hand touch yours. A beautiful kiss on...

    I dislike it when people say it isn't painful

    because it is, especially if they are never lonely. It hurts so much to be and feel alone all the time, when you have nobody to talk to and especially if you're going through a difficult time, you just wish somebody was there to help you through it, and understand, that just...

    I'm gay, lonely and sad.

    .. I'm not actively gay and yet I want to desperately fit in... I'm a Christian and struggle with the loneliness of my sexuality... Anyone else out there who understands? I want to reach out to those who are gay and lonely too and yet don't accept being actively gay is right.

    than a state of being. Then more I try and fight being lonely the more I see it's not as all encompassing as I once thought.

    loneliness isnt always physical.

    loneliness is the feeling you get when you feel like nobody understands. the feeling you get when you're standing in a crowd of people that love you and you feel so alone and separated. loneliness is a horrible feeling.
