    Anybody out there,

    I’m sending this letter out into the world, into the tangled web of anonymity with the hopes that someone sees it and that someone cares. Now before you start worrying about me, don’t. Because that isn’t my intention; to worry people. I just want someplace where I can lay out my feelings and my thoughts and people will want to hear them. And at least here – if people don’t want to – I’m saved from the embarrassment of looking alone. After all, no one here knows me.

    Now, my life isn’t hard by any stretch of the imagination and it’s just plain ignorant of me to complain. But sometimes I just feel like life has lost its joy. But the main issue is, when I’m feeling down about something; I don’t know who to talk to and that’s what really hurts.

    I fought with my father tonight, which resulted in an abundance of tears, as we never fight and I hate to disappoint him. Now I know the fight isn’t a big deal and it will be resolved and everything will be fine. Yet in those moments of sheer teenage angst when I needed a shoulder to cry on, all of a sudden I felt lost.

    All of the friends I have are either too busy, have their own problems, are bored with me or just straight up don’t care. Which is fine, if it weren’t for the fact that I’m always there for them.

    So I thought maybe; if I tell you, dear reader, you might care. You might know how I feel, you might understand. And that in itself is comforting. To think that some faceless, nameless person is reading my words and nodding. Because if we’re all lonely; then we’re all together in that.

    Aren’t we?

      Indeed, even when we are alone, we still have each other, the other lonely hearts. And my own heart goes out to yours in understanding and empathy. It’s tough not really having anyone around in real life to go to and I am incredibly glad for this site to express what otherwise would have no place for expression.

      I will certainly be praying for you, my friend.

      I agree. Even tho it might feel like we are all alone, we aren’t. We’re all in this mess of a world together. It’s nice to atleast have this site as a virtual shoulder to cry on when a real one isn’t available.

      No one in this world should have to feel alone when they need someone. Ever. I’m never far from my email account, if you want to get in touch to talk some things through, let me know. We’ll work something out.

      Keep your head up kid, we’re all in this together. You are most certainly not alone. If theres anything I learnt from LINS, its that there will always be someone else right there next to you đŸ™‚

      that is true! LINS and the writers are here too to share on what we are going thru; I know that I have come a long way in mending my heart since I discovered LINS,quite by accident. I have posted letters here with my innermost feelings and thoughts something I would not even share with my mom. Cheer up, things always get better, no matter how rotten they are at the present. Life is like that!
