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

Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell i am sooooo thankful for this and glad it’s #1 trending! This puts the explanation out there for our friends/loved ones who don’t understand why those of us that actually enjoy moments of isolation do this. Very glad you added every individual is different. Some of us can go quiet for months but can stay balanced/centered/connected as well 💚

that's exactly what happened to me. I got busy with college and didn't invite people out as often. my friends didn't invite me out either and I felt like they didn't want me around so I stopped trying. and I've been friendless for 4 years now. I survive by playing games with internet people sometimes. and I tried to join a club at school but I felt more alone, but I need to try again.

To anyone feeling lonely reading this, just open up. People can help, it’s just a matter if you tell them. There are other people like you, some who aren’t as fortunate and don’t have anyone, and if you don’t open up, your just as unfortunate. Strive to make a change. Once you start, others will be behind you, supporting you

"I never thought there could be anything worse than being all alone in the night. But there is. Being all alone in a crowd" - quote from Babylon 5 During my last 10 years in school, not once did anyone in my class (3 boys, 27 girls) talk to me about anything else then school related stuff. Not once did anyone contact, message or talk to me outside school. Even if I sometimes got attention for being best in class, like in music and sport. I felt that my classmates only gave me attention for my skills and not because they wanted to be friends with me. I wasn't bullied and when you talked to them they would always be nice and friendly but over the years I still felt that I became more and more alienated. I referenced that quote because I felt that it really described my life. Sometimes being alone isn't about being an isolationist or not able to talk to other people. I talked to people all the time and I was around people all the time. But when I analyze the last 10 years and see that no one talked to me because they wanted to be my friend and get to know me, People talked to me not because who I am but because of my skills. It can be very depressing. The thing is that I never saw my situation for what it was then. Either I was to young or to focused on other things like computer games to really reflect on my life. I usually say that I have no friends and that is almost true. I have one close emotional friend, but because of where we live, the only interaction we have is by messenger and we don't talk often. So when my first and only girlfriend broke up with me after 3 years, Then I realized how lonely I was. Fast forward half a year with unemployment, isolation, depression and self harm (cutting and starvation) and we are here today (I had counseling with psychologist and I will soon start a new job so things starts to feel better) I really want to highlight that loneliness can take many forms and it maybe even won't show on the outside but It really need to have more focus in society.

I ignore phone calls and don't make plans, but I don't feel lonely. I keep busy with my work and do whatever I want, without having to answer to anyone or worry about making anyone mad. People are vicious and I am not saying that being facetious. They really are. It's better to be alone than miserable.

I’m a 17 year old guy, I moved school recently to a school in the Uk. I used to have a lot friends back home but now I feel like an extrovert trapped in an introvert’s body! It’s not like me to be shy like this but I feel like an alien here - i never thought the move would affect me like this.

日本語訳に翻訳してくださった方、いつも本当にありがとうございます。「It's not a sign of weakness, but of courage.」この言葉が胸に刺さりました。自殺が多いこの日本で、助けを求められる人はどれだけ居るでしょうか?  「自殺は苦痛を止めるのではなく、苦しみを何倍にも増して、家族や友人に伝えます。」この言葉は良く聴く言葉ですが、本当の事です。私の知人が自死し、私自身も苦しみの最中に居ます。 あの時何故、相談してくれなかったのか? 何故私は、連絡しなかったのか?と何度も後悔しています。 この動画であるように、慢性的な孤独で悩み苦しむのなら、人に頼ってください 人はそう悪くありません

SJ Vlogs find new friends! i know it’s easier said than done but one thing I’ve learned growing up is that you can choose to step away from toxicity. there are so many people in this world (and at school tbh) that you don’t have to stay friends with someone who brings you down
