    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    It's one of those nights

    when I find it really hard to fall asleep and not think about being alone. I crave intimacy and touch, I want to be hugged. Seems like it's too much to ask.

    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...

    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.
