i wish i wasn't the one in here who's feeling about this ("seriously"), when i was a kid until maybe 11 or 13 years old i was totally like everyone else("you know, normal people") who likes to be in company, playing, talking and like to be in-touch by everybody("having normal affection y'know") but not until i joined a group of other teens in my same age of me or older. when i was 14 i got involved in a turmoil, a gang-war that unfortunately killing some of enemy gangs and my mates. 4 of those i honestly gonna say i did it... after that incident since today i started to become isolated and i don't even know why.. it all gone worst when i got bullied on rehab and school when i was a high school. i cant even fight back even i wanted to. i am also being called crazy or weirdo, i felt my mindset or myself fucked up.. very very fucked up.. i always wanted to be alone isolated even to my family and crying everyday sometimes in school. i also curse humanity as a mistaken being or some sort of that. i felt hatred to myself and everyone. after that when i was i college i attempted to commit in suicide. alone because i wanted this feeling to stop coz it's agonizing. i always gone hospitalized when i was 16 and 18 for attempting suicide. but now after to knew some "friends" again it kinda change ("a little"). but the pain still linger to myself.

“You don’t have to be lonely to feel lonely” What I feel this is trying to emphasize is that you can be completely surrounded in a room full of people, and even be able to have conversations arise, but at the end of the day, if those people can’t connect with you, they might as well be not there at all.

Thank you so much for this. This video neatly explains my situation. I had some problems with transferring schools, and I spent around an year literally not talking to anyone at school and being the "weirdo" until I graduated. At high school, people were nice and tried to make friends with me but i pushed them away because of that 'defensive mode' thing mentioned in the video. I suppose I'll try to better my life by recognizing that people and their intentions aren't what my brain think they are.

Ever since the end of freshman year in high school, my life has never been the same as before. I used to have a group of friends, whom I cherished deeply. I used to be surrounded by people. I used to be a part of the center of attention. However, as I progressed in life, I found everyone fading out one after the other. Rather than getting closer, some of us started having fights with one another, some decided to be too focused on their studies, a few had to change schools and stopped getting in touch, and the rest simply found another group of friends and forgot about their previous circle. They all went on with their lives, while I was left there with no one but myself. Back then, my loneliness was only at its peak. Now, I’m completely separated with literally no one to talk to or rely on. I have great and supportive parents, but I can’t talk to them about everything, since there’s a large gap in our ages and they can’t understand me like another teenager would. It’s been 2 years and i’m still a high school teenager going through more than just loneliness but anxiety and sometimes depression. I tend to feel stronger when i’m alone at home listening to music, doing school assignments, or playing something on my phone. The few activities that I do at home are like my own representation of alcohol to make me forget what my life has gotten to. But, going to school strips me off my confidence. Going to school always reminds me of my melancholy. School forces me to watch all those other kids having the fun of their lives, while I’m just there in my seat having nothing to do but eat my lunch, do my assignments, and observe others waiting for time to pass. Consequently, I’ve been missing a lot of school days just for the reason that I feel lonely and uneasy every time i get there. I tried to get out of my armor and attempted to get closer to new people, but all they do is nicely push me away and keep me out of things, maybe because it’s too late to get into an already complete group of friends when you’re a teenager. I went to parties and events, but I just can’t get myself to talk to anyone, especially because everyone else is with someone and i’m just by myself. I even tried to love, but that got me too vulnerable, making me suffer with an almost unbearable pain that I recently recovered myself from. With that happening, I decided to shut the door to my heart, because that’s the only way to survive a life like mine. I do try to be optimistic and tell myself that it’s only a phase of my life, that there’s a bright future ahead of me. However, at this point it became way too difficult to stick to that belief even if it’s true. It frightens my when I think that my time is running and i’m trapped in a loop where I wake up in the morning, go to school to feel awful, get home and do my homework, and then sleep to repeat the same thing the next day. I get those weird flashbacks of myself as a kid and feel sorry for him for turning his life into hell.

I'm a junior in high school, and I'm on my 3rd year of homeschooling, I grew up in a big school with alot of friends up until freshman year when my parents said I could take homeschooling, being the type of person who hates school I said fuck yeah. After 1 year of homeschooling I stopped talking to all my friends and lost contact with them, the 1st year was fine since I liked being alone and was happy about not going to school even tho I felt lonely sometimes. 2nd year came and things kind of took a dark turn, I stayed in my house all day because I lived out in the country, didnt have a license and I also had no friends, I ended up meeting someone online on a game and we slowly became best friends, we played alot of games together all the time, mainly gta. She was the only friend I had and after over a year of being friends her boyfriend said she isnt really allowed to talk to me anymore, she ignored me for 3 weeks before saying anything about it and ended up blocking me and resenting me. When this happened I didnt really know what to do with myself, I got stabbed in the back and left in a ditch to rot by the person I cared about most, so I wanted to go back to public school so I could see my old friends again and fix the emptiness in my heart. But we ended up moving to a new city so I wasn't able to go back to my old school. So here I am, 17 yrs old with no irl friends besides my brothers who have all moved out, I've had my best friend from public school commit suicide and I got to see his dead body in a casket(you could see the stitches where he shot himself), I stay inside all day, the only ppl i see in the flesh are my parents, I'm heartbroken, I'm lonely, I'm to shy to want to go to a new public school, and I'm to fucking dead inside to wanna try and make a change. Ain't life a bitch 😑🤷‍♂️ Life advice, dont take homeschooling. And Katie or XxMExX--(ps4) if you're somehow seeing this, fuck you 🖕

TLDR: I meet and talk with dozens of new people every month and I still feel lonely. Im a student attending Purdue University and I'm from NJ and I've had loneliness ever since I got here (I'm a freshman in second semester). I thought that joining clubs would help with making friends, but it really hasn't. I've joined gymnastics, Filipino club, and outdoors club and I still feel lonely. I'm also very extroverted and sit down with random people everytime I eat a meal at a dining hall just so I could meet new people. In the end though, what I've realized is it's not the quantity of friends, but the quality of friends that you have. With all the friends (acquaintences, really) that I've made at Purdue, nobody is as genuine or entertaining or weird as my friends back home. It seems like all people in college just like to drink and get wasted in order to really get themselves out of their shell, but if they're sober then they're boring introverts that will always just kill the vibe. Idk, I just hope I can find someone as crazy as my friends back in NJ. Everyone here at Purdue is very quiet and boring. I feel like I don't fit in here at all. I'm not into doing drugs, I'm not a big party person, I have lots of hobbies (most ppl I meet have no hobbies and just stay at home binge watching TV), and I'm a truly hype, crazy, wild person. Like whenever I will be freestyling on a rap beat in public ppl look at me weird, but if I did that shit in NJ/NYC I bet a million dollars everyone around me would be hyping me up and getting lit. I miss NJ. I miss my home and my friends.

I was in this circle for a while during Year 11 (Australian). I started declining invitations to things because I wanted time for video games and YouTube in amongst all my school work. This just made me feel worse. I started getting tilted faster from losing games or being in stressful situations in said games, and I just started getting really depressed... then I recognised that I was having an issue and made it my New Year's Revolution to stop that behaviour. I haven't played League of Legends yet this year, and I have played minimal amounts of other games. I also found love, towards the end of last year, and that gave me a motive to keep pushing through the mud pools I find myself in. My New Year's resolution is still holding strong.

This video hit right in the middle of my current quest to combat my crippling loneliness. When it came to the "what can I do to combat these feelings" portion of the video, I listened really closely. Turns out, I'm taking some of the exact right steps. I recently committed to attending a weekly board gaming meetup, and I've been feeling incrementally better ever since. I also recently dropped a toxic friend. Next step is to invite a couple of friends from work to hang out outside of work. It's only taken me thirty years, but I've finally realized that I CAN have only the healthy friendships that I want and engage in only the recreational interactions that I want, all entirely on my terms. If you're a self-sacrificing, people-pleasing, introverted, anxious, cataclysmic-thinking wreck of a person like me, DON'T GIVE UP! Break your hangups down into the smallest possible fears that they can be and take the time to really stew over whether or not those are things worth being fearful of. (I think you'll find they aren't.) Then, no matter how scared you are of that last little fear that's still getting in your way, power through it! I paced awkwardly around the board game group for a solid fifteen minutes before I finally forced myself through that final layer of fear and stumbled over to introduce myself. Now, each week, it's like rejoining with old friends. On that first visit, I had already reassured myself that if I had broken and fled in the next fifteen minutes, I could try again next week. No one would judge me for it, and I couldn't hold it against myself. I would have failed to strike up one single conversation at that one time on that one day. So what? I have literally infinite retries. No one is claiming that any of this is easy, or that you won't fail horribly. Just remember your social graces, accept every interaction at its face value, and take. it. slow. One misstep doesn't mean that the marathon's over.

I remember when I was very isolated and alone, it very much reinforced and showed that: Your life is about your relationship with others (i.e your friends, family, gf/bf) Because when I was alone I felt very depressed. However, there is a way to be alone in a healthy way when you aren't mentally strong: Get a personal project, especially if it allows you to express yourself with your creative part of your brain. It helps you get a sense of self, and you feel genuinely good about feeling like an individual.

Also.. does this video essentially cancel out the existence and validity of most mental illness? As in, most people are told they are "crazy" by doctors, taking pills they don't need, being sent to mental hospitals.. simply because they've been lonely for far too long?

I knew I didn't have depression, or anything like that... but after watching this video I am honestly scared. I feel every symptom on here and more. I defend myself by shooting down any invitations. I avoid people. I have insecurities that grow more and more as time goes on... I'm a negative person, and I've become self-centered and selfish. I don't know what to do... I've seen myself come all this way. I've been trying to fix it. But it just seems impossible considering how narrow my tastes are, and the people that live in my area... Don't be like me. Don't let your loneliness grow this much. I can't believe that all these things I've been noticing for the last 5 years were my reactions to the loneliness I knew I had...
