I'm Sad and I Feel Pathetic About It, I Also Want Your Stories GTfadedmoon4/23/14 9:39pmFiled to: Help me GT. You're my only hope1311EditPromoteShare to KinjaGo to permalinkI've been trying to figure out why I've been so down this past month and I think I figured it out: I am so lonely it hurts. I am the perpetually single person in a family/friend circle of daters. And it's started to suck. It's mainly the whole why doesn't anyone see me as worthwhile? thing that I can't shake.AdvertisementI feel pathetic about this because it's so not that big of a deal in the long run. Never having a relationship at 22 isn't really massive and I'm about to do so much. I've got a semester abroad to look forward to and then graduation. But when 90% of my best friend's conversations are about her boyfriend and my younger sister is likely getting engaged as we speak, I'm just feeling absurdly sorry for myself. I know rationally this is nothing but its just been weighing on my mind. I could put myself out there and start relationship hunting but I feel so up in the air about where my life is going and I have 22 years of experience telling me that people are not interested. I've been rereading this poem for twenty-year-olds who have never been loved and it's been making me feel a lot better, because I feel that way right now.
