    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 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 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.

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

    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.
