Everybody feels lonely sometimes. But only few of us are aware how important this feeling was for our ancestors - and that our modern world can turn it into something that really hurts us. Why do we feel this way and what can we do about it?
Books mentioned in the endcard:
'Emotional First Aid' by Guy Winch
'Loneliness' by John Cacioppo & William Patrick

The Cost
The Cost Vor Stunde
What happens when extreme paranoia fades too dim light, and you stop seeing people with emotion and only see them as moving objects, meat. And the feeling of sad fades away as does the desire for love and friends? As ive been ... here for years, i no longer have a need for anyone and i never feel alone, unless i choose to? I kinda feel awesome 99% of tge time now...... I kinda think being/feeling isolated since i was 6 has turned me super human. Lol. Well i have issues with making it on time now to stuff like work. Few more months and im 33, not sure if it's adulthood or what, bug i surely know why dumb commie kids think they are oppressed.

The fact that this has about 4 million views in a day speaks volumes about what is happening across the planet. Reach out to someone, odds are they are lonely too. Also, maybe try avoiding social media, I think that accentuates our feelings of loneliness.

I wanted to give a little feedback about this video. but was feeling a bit hesitant. So taking a lesson from this video just putting my self out there. I felt that this video was not made with the same vision as the rest of the videos you guys make. eg: 1. at 5.24 Usually there is no frame in which we are waiting for the narrator to reach a certain part of the line so that the relevant animation can be shown. 2. 5.09 green used in this frame is much more aggressive (I don't know what the technical word for this is, it does not gel with the frame) it is not balanced. Usually the colors in your videos go very well together 3. Length - May be the video could have been in 2 parts like the fermi- paradox. These were my observations. I genuinely love the content you guys make. Please keep on going.

YES I am a loner now,but doesn't mean I haven't tried.Its just I was FED UP of how FAKE and F****D Up our generation has become...being obsessed with artificial attractions and unnecessary luxuries....Hell to even start up a conversation,its like you have to have some good looks,money in your pockets and a success story to share.....the world is gonna shit itself into oblivion soon....I'd rather die a lonely guy,exploring as much as possible and having a hearty time drinking and traipsing than blending in with this fake farted society...

This video hit me really hard, im a shy person i cant be around people without feeling nervous or uncomfortable, i always get nervous and my face turns red and stumble on talking and i start looking to the person am talking to and feel like they are now thinking am awkward or why his face turning red like this and i just cant do anything and hope the conversation ends so i can go away, i really want to change and be able to break this shyness that i have it really hurts me so much, i cant do normal things, like i sit alone in my class, i dont ask my teacher anything and i dont raise my hand to answer a question even though i know the answer but as soon as i wanna raise my hand my heart starts beating my face becomes red and i get nervous and then i just give up, i have been dealing with this for the past four years and till now i cant escape it and its really affecting my life because i feel like am standing still and cant move on, i even graduated from college and dont know what to do i cant go to a job interview because i know ill get nervous, i cant get a girlfriend becuase guess what ill be shy and mess everything and what really hurts me is that i have alot of things to give i have alot of things to say i can answer nearly any question the teacher asks i can talk to a girl all day and dont make her get bored even once but i just cant do it once it all start in my head and the shyness and nervousness kicks in me i just cant do anything, am sorry to be long but i felt like i could release some frustration or talk about it...

I'm always asking my friends to hang out, always making plans to entertain old friends... You know what, they are all "busy" so fuck em.. if you're going to cause your own suffering then cry about then thats on you. Ive used all the dating apps, and woman are just not responding and making up crazy excuses.. People are lonely on a scale that's unfathomable and it's your own fault..

HEY EVERYONE! I just wanted to let you know that, JESUS loves you! Jesus is the Way to everlasting life. If you want to be saved from hell, come to JESUS. God sent His only Begotten Son(Jesus), to this earth, to die on the cross for your sins. If you want to be saved and go to heaven, this is what you need to do: 1. Believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. 2. Believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins. 3. Believe that God the Father has raised Him(Jesus) from the dead. 4. Repent of your sins( telling God your sorry for everything you have done against Him). 5. Ask Jesus to come into your heart, and to save you from your sins. 6. Be willing to change your lifestyle. 7. Thank Him(Jesus) for saving your life. Pray this in JESUS Name, and DO ALL OF THIS WITH YOUR HEART!!!!! Congratulations, you are now a Christian and have eternal life.

Faith in God and a relationship with Jesus has been giving people fulfillment and purpose for thousands of years. This staves off loneliness....You live a life not about yourself, but one that loves and gives to others. Even those who hate you... true discipleship is difficult for so many because we are naturally self-absorbed...

Its a cycle that is extremely dangerous, frankly, it’s both extremely easy and extremely hard for someone to get out of it. Taking the risk of opening up to other people is a requirement to a better social life. Push through the anxiety, push yourself to be better, the grass is always greener on the other side. Just pull yourself over the fence. If you need help, reach out your hand and someone will help you out. But they won’t come if you don’t call out first.

Sometimes I feel so alone, I just don't know, feels like I been down this road before, So lonely and cold, It's like something takes over me, Soon as I go home and close the door, Kinda feels like deja vu, I wanna get away from this place I do, But I can't and I won't say I tried but I know that's a lie cause I don't And why I just don't know... - *Eminem*

Holy shit. I've been waiting for a video like this forever. It resonates with me on so many levels and is so correct. I have been lonely for many years but have essentially come to feel complacent with my situation. I am so glad that they brought attention to how lonely people perpetuate their cycle of loneliness by continuously denying social opportunities and closing yourself off to everything. You become addicted to the very kind of behaviour that made you lonely in the first place, and you start to see everything very negatively. I have personally found myself focused on negative things such as conflict between people and the negative attributes of others. Furthermore, almost anything that has tried to take me out of my comfort zone (being alone and away from people, surrounded by expedient things such as the internet and video games) is often responded to with hostility. This is particularly ironic because being in that comfort zone for extended periods of time causes a slow burn of your soul and chips away your very humanity. I feel that my behaviour has been ingrained over many years, and this video has validated my desire to seek professional help for it. Thank you Kurzgesagt.

About the problem - I used to feel myself lonely and I had maybe two really close friends, but I've started finding positive things in that feeling and have given people a chance to get a little bit closer to me, and it helps (for me!). Maybe we shouldn't demand too much from others (friends, colleagues) and should try to find more positive in ourselves. Maybe this is very personal advice but... since others could be alone as you it can make you closer and you'll stop feeling lonely!
