63 alone is good quotes


I often feel so alone, even when I’m surrounded by people. It’s like this big hole inside of me that can never be filled. I try to fill it with other things, but nothing ever seems to work. Sometimes the only way to make it go away is to keep moving and busy. But even then, it’s always there lurking in the background, waiting to pounce when I’m least expecting it.

It’s hard to explain what it feels like to someone who hasn’t experienced it. The best way to describe it would be a feeling of emptiness or hollowness. No matter what you do, you can’t shake the feeling that something is missing. And it’s not just one specific thing. It’s everything. Everything feels wrong and out of place.

The worst part is that this feeling sometimes comes on for no reason. I could be having a great day and suddenly be hit with this overwhelming sense of loneliness and despair. It’s like a dark cloud descending from nowhere and blanketing everything in sadness.

I know there are other people out there who feel like this too. People struggle with their demons and try to find their way in life. We’re all fighting our battles; some days, we just need a little reminder that we’re not alone.
