6 Words - My Loneliness by anniecheng09 6 Words - My Loneliness by anniecheng09
This is my contest entry to #SixWordStories' "6 Words" contest.

Sometimes at school, this is how I feel.

I am always around my friends -- my best friends -- but they're always hurting me without knowing it.

They laugh together, share their experiences, gossip -- all in front of me.

I really want to fit in... but it seems like, there's just not space for me to squeeze in...

Another kind of pain -- loneliness.

-Annie.

Aww it's okay Annie!! <333

If they keep hurting you, try to find new friends that understand you!

I went through almost the same thing.... I know how you feel... -hugs- :]

i'm glad that you can express yourself through literature and drawing, instead of other destructive alternatives. the illustration is beautiful. :)

Ahaha, yup, it's great I'd relieve my anger on a paper instead of on a person. c: (constantly...)
Thank you!

This is truly a ah-mazing drawing, although the mood is sad, depressed, & hurting. The words express alot of emotion, feeling & understanding. We all do, sometimes, feel your way, Annie! 'Friends' just pick you up into their group one minute, and drop you off like a dirty tissue the other. Good job on it, Annie!

Very nice!

I really like the style of drawing there and how you've managed to emphasise the separation and thus the concept as well. I think you've summed it up very well, and I feel as if quite a lot of people can relate to it too. I mean, you can be surrounded by so many people and yet still feel alone inside...

Great piece, and well executed as well! I like the subtle effect of the different colours and how the main character is in darkness, as if to really emphasise how alone she is.

Yes... if only the world could change slightly, this picture would definitely turn upside down (get what I mean? XD).

Thank you again! :tighthug:

It is just a matter of finding yourself. Don't worry about it too much. We all go though this. In fact, I am 3 months from 20 and I still feel this way from time to time.

that's exactly how i felt several years ago until i realized they weren't worth it.

i found people who loved me for who was i, not who they made me up to be.

they're not worth you. x3 don't let them keep using/hurting you, you're wasting life each day that goes by.

live.

Normally, you just have the words with no pictures. It's nice to see someone take an original approach though.

The drawings very cute (:
I hope you feel more comfortable soon. In middle school I was the same but now I go to a "geek" school for high school and I love my new friends to death now. Maybe you just need a change in scenery.

Sometimes I feel the same way too. But maybe it's just temporary, I believe they'll talk to you soon again. :) Or if they still ignore you, just find someone else who might be in the same situation as you are! That's what I did.
Good luck with your friendship and contest!
