I Want That Feeling Back

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 113 People

    I want to feel free and safe

    and happy again. Hopeful and motivated too. I miss feeling like I had purpose and direction in my life. These days, I just wander aimlessly. I don't know where to go or what to do, but I have a need to wander. Maybe I'll stumble upon something that will point the way or maybe I...

    I Wish....

    ...that excited, tingly, giddiness of new love never wore off. I miss that. I miss my heart skipping a beat, sweaty palms, and getting tongue tied...not knowing what to say. I suppose that phase doesn't last for any couple, although I'm sure some find a way to keep their spark...

    Not Love

    I want to feel the agony and ecstasy of anticipation before joy, triumph, freedom, and relief.

    The feeling of overwhelming gratefulness

    and happiness. I used to feel that way when helping others. I don't do that so much now days.

    SUMMER Love.

    My most precious memory... Summer night at a party, met this kid. We separated from the party went down to the dock and laid down on a boat for hours drunkenly talking to each other staring at the stars.  Later we moved to a bonfire.  Later that summer after we had...

    Butterfly Feelings

    I want that feeling back....the one where you made me feel like I was on top of the world.  I wish I never seen those e-mails that you sent to your ex.  I realize they are not recent but you were still with me.  My heart fell from my chest and dropped on the floor...

    Once Upon a Time

    Once upon a time there was a wonderful, happy place in my life. It was full of glitter and road trips, margaritas and vibrating remotes, group hugs and LOVE... It was a place I could always go to to feel GOOD, laugh with friends, and get support if I was feeling a bit down...

    Bliss

    I wish I didn't know the feeling of missing you more than I would miss my next breath. I wish I didn't know the feeling of my heartbreaking. I wish I didn't know the pain deep within my soul that comes from being apart from you. I wish I could have that feeling of perfect loving...

    Happiness

    Although I'm happy "happy" in general, I want to experience happiness that comes with being in a relationship (with a loving woman) again. Someday though.

    Oh Yeah....

    That feeling, so beautiful so breath taking. So safe, so trust worthy. Just give in, sink in, enjoy the bliss. Float upon the feeling of purity and safety... forever in your eyes, lost and drifting. Hold me in your gaze, your love remains and saves. lol I can't rhyme but...

    Times Past

    I miss those feelings, those moments back when, that if I close my eyes I can almost return to. Like that day in English class, I was 15 and sitting in the back alone. It was the beginning of my junior year and before I'd found my niche at that school. As I sat half...
