    You Bet It Is

    Never underestimate the physical, emotional  and mental pain of loneliness.It kills people.The elderly give up  slowly but surely. They've  lost their partners,sit in homes, wait for a visitor till that hope has  gone to the wayside as well.I have a soft spot in my heart for...

    I know I chose to be alone.

    I isolate,myself in the dark to avoid getting hurt by monstrous people. But being alone also hurts me to the core so either way, I'm dead inside.

    I am alone, but not alone.

    I have friends and a S.O. I don't think he understands me. I did tell him the other day that if he and one of my friends weren't in my life... I wouldn't be doing anything... I have a kid but I'm not throw this on him he's 6. And my friend... I feel as if I bother her too much...

    Feeling alone isn't that no one is around you

    like people think that is what being alone is. Being alone is that you feel like no one cares.

    I have been clearing out my texts

    and messages because I have too many of them. Then I had to be reminded of the people that I thought really cared for me, but I was left alone once again. I wish it was as easy to delete the memories from my brain as it is to wipe them from my inbox.

    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.

    for some but a regular guest in my house. was there as a child and comes for longer periods as I get older. it's weird really. the older I get the harder I find it is to get him to leave, he's somewhat become my only best friend. I have had maybe more than the "acceptable" level...

    All consuming There's this emptiness inside

    me, a void. Usually it's hidden. Sometimes though, it becomes too much. It's always there. This loneliness. Even in a room full of people I am completely alone. There are very few people with which I don't feel this. Those people though are seldom around. I get the feeling that...

    Loneliness does not come from having no people about one,but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself,or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible. If a man knows more than others he becomes lonely. But loneliness is not...

    It's physically painful to be

    so lonely it actually hurts and the worst loneliness is the loneliness with a significant other... Luckily I have friends and family but some moments are excruciating.

    Loneliness is a feeling

    that strikes when you are missunderstood and there is no one to share good or bad...even tho sometimes you are surrounded by people. I think that's the worst kind of loneliness you can feel. I would say you have yourself,and that's a lot but sometimes not even yourself seems to...
