Re: [Chat] Forever alone :(

Welcome @roseisnotaplant and @DruidChild!

 

What is loneliness?

 

Loneliness is feeling isolated from other people, and like you don’t have anybody to talk to, seek support from, or share things with.

hey @DruidChild and @roseisnotaplant !
thanks for joining us tonight. its interesting that we have all mentioned so far that you dont have to be somewehre all by yourself physically to feel alone, but you can actually be surrounded by people and feel unable to connect. i totally agree with that.

To me lonliness is a feeling of something missing whether that be friends or something else.

Oh hey @khaleesi_18 !

What is loneliness?

Loneliness is a feeling, its often caused by being alone..funnily enough. However you can experience loneliness in a room full of people if you don't feel connected to them! There's also a technical term called social isolation, which is essentially not having friendly connections with other people. And there's a thing called Social isolation risk, which is the risk to your health associated with not having enough connections. There's some research out there that suggests it's as risky to your health as something like smoking! Eeeep

Can you be with people and still feel lonely?

 

Absolutely, although it depends on the people. I think you're more likely to feel alone in a group of people if you don't know them, or if their different to you, or if they're unfriendly, etc.

Hey @roseisnotaplant @j95 @RandomName Smiley Happy 

 

Can you be with people and still be lonely?

Probably by the time I post this everybody will have said the same thing...but yes, definitely you can. Loneliness can be from physical isolation, but also from feeling different or disconnected.
