    Understanding Loneliness

    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...

    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...

    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.

    That Empty....Hollow Feeling...

    When you are trapped in the bottom and completely broken, loneliness is the worst poison. The times when you are faced with something no one else can really relate to and all you can do is go home and sit there alone, you start to think that no one really cares. Because no one...

    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 don't understand why I cannot accept the fact

    that I'm alone. I just cried for what I think would be the 5th time this week. I'm not sure I'll be missed when I'm gone. I don't know how to handle this pain any longer.

    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.

    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 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 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.
