Me, Myself and I loneliness

HAVE YOU EVER FELT ALONE IN A CROWDED ROOM?

  • A lot of the time loneliness isn't being physically alone, or by yourself.
  • It's more the feeling that no one cares.
  • This is why many people can feel so alone whilst at the same time being surrounded by others.

WE MUST REMEMBER THAT THERE IS NOTHING WRONG AT ALL WITH THIS AND THAT IT IS PERFECTLY NORMAL, HOWEVER IT MIGHT FEEL A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE FOR YOU. HERE ARE A FEW THINGS WE CAN

In the company of others, yet still so alone.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME?

  1. Many people believe there's something 'wrong' with them for feeling this way.
  2. They start to worry and care too much about the way they're feeling.
  3. This makes them feel stressed and they start to not care about important things like school or family.

What we must remember is that there isn't anything wrong with feeling this way at all, it's a normal human feeling. However it can feel uncomfortable and sometimes like you're the only person feeling this way.
