Re: do you ever just get really really lonely?


Yeah, I am having problems finding people to relate to in person right now, so I feel very lonely.

Re: do you ever just get really really lonely?


Yeah, definitely. I have a major jealous streak anyways, but, for example, when I'm at school I see people laughing, having a grand old time, and I feel like I will never be that happy. It seems like they don't have a care in the world, and here I am, depressed, scared, and lonely. It's just not fair.

The thing is, I don't particularly love being around people, even my close friends, for a long time. I need alone time. So I guess I don't really care if I'm truly alone, just relaxing or whatever, but when I'm alone in a crowd, if you get my meaning, then I'm hurting. Lately it hasn't been as bad for me. I've just started to care less about what everyone else thinks. Plus, suffering builds good character! I can't wait until I'm out of the hell they call high school...

Re: do you ever just get really really lonely?


Last night I was sitting, aimlessly sufring around the net and I got struck with an accute sense of being by myself. I looked around the room and everything felt strange like I was in a dream.

Do you really exist if you are the only witness to your actions and thought?

Re: do you ever just get really really lonely?


Lonely, yes, terribly so. It would be nice to be in a social environment again. I wouldn't even mind being in school. Just to see people interact would be better than being so completely alone.

I am the son and the heir of a shyness that is criminally vulgar. I am the son and heir of nothing in particular.

You shut your mouth. How can you say I go about things the wrong way? I am human and I need to be loved, just like everybody else does.

Re: do you ever just get really really lonely?


I just got back from a month on the road, and was reminded how empty my life is back here.

Re: do you ever just get really really lonely?


Perversely, the more contact I have with people the more pain (pain sounds too dramatic, let's say discomfort) I feel about being alone. It's like interaction is a drug and I suffer withdrawl. Until I started trying to find people to talk to, I never felt lonely. "Why did I start looking for people then?", you may ask, well I found this site and discovered about SA and all that stuff and through that started talking to people.

It's all or nothing and in between is not nice.

Re: do you ever just get really really lonely?


In high school I literally had no social life. It didn't really bother me much, to be alone all the time and no one to hang out with on the weekends. I got really used to being alone. When I take a good look at myself I realize just how empty my life is, socially, but I don't know if I want to be alone or not. I don't know if a social life is what I've been looking for all this time.

Re: do you ever just get really really lonely?


I have friends, but no one to really "go deep" with. So I'm pretty lonely at night. I really need someone in my life to share with. Yes, loneliness right now is an issue. I can relate.

I know what you mean, but "go deep" made me laugh. I think you can work out why.

Sometimes. It usually coincides with when I'm most deeply depressed.

Re: do you ever just get really really lonely?


Hah, I remember when I moved into my new apartment I planned on meeting the people who lived near me. There was a girl around my age living right next to me, but she only spoke Spanish and was moving out anyway. I thought I'd meet whoever replaced her. It was a family, ALL of whom only speak Spanish! Haha, I guess I should brush up on my Spanish. There aren't too many English-speakers in my immediate vacinity (an unidentified language is spoken by the next closest apartment).

He ran because it grounded him in basics. There was both life and death in it; it was unadulterated by media hype, trivial cares, political meddling...It was all joy and woe, hard as a diamond; it made him weary beyond comprehension. But it also made him free.

Re: do you ever just get really really lonely?


Yes, but I don't have much choice but to tough it out. I'm not good at being social enough to not be lonely, but I can be easily overwhelmed by too much social stuff.

Not really. If you haven't noticed, this world is positively crawling with people, and too many humans is not a good thing.

Yeah, same here. When I see groups of friends and such I'm not bothered about being alone at all, but when I see a happy couple, I get really depressed. I see that and think to myself, "I'll probably never get to know what that's like." Good times!

Every single day. I go to class, avoid talking to or looking at anyone while I'm there, and then I come home. This is my life.
