  • 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?

    The worst part of loneliness is when you watch a movie and want to share your opinion with someone but you have nobody
    and you end up talking to yourself

      I went through the same thought process as you. Don't treat loneliness as an illness. It's not. I started to turn loneliness on its head. I found I could do anything I wanted, whenever I wanted. I hung out at a few cafés and the odd bar, and found I could strike up a conversation with almost anyone. I went snorkeling on my own recently. Had a great time, and as the sun started to dip, as I drove home, a song called spooky, sung by Dusty Springfield, came on the radio. It was soooo chilled, and made me think that we don't actually NEED anyone. Sure, it's nice to have people around. But just as nice to be able to relax, and leave all their baggage behind. Love who you are, and others will love you. Hope this helped. Even if only a little x

      I have had friends who bullied me, stole from me, and even attacked me because I was a different religion to them. - The result I have chosen solitude, and I am as lonely as hell. - But there's no way I would ever want to have friends again. I just can no longer cope with being a crime victim.

      I am in 11th grade currently. I have had to shift homes every year since 7th grade. This video really called me out on my behaviour. I feel invisible at class because everyone has already established their friend groups and such, and when a group wants to let me in, i feel REALLY hesitant to open up about myself by instinct.
      Changing schools so fast has made me feel isolated from everyone and everything and i hope it improves. Not to mention that i have had to start school late every single grade, the burden of studies got to me in my current grade and i have mentally broken down and given up. I can't take it anymore.

      you probably could have helped him, because most people can tell when someone is lonely but they don't do anything to include that person in their lives or to make them less lonely... so next time you notice that someone is lonely, try to help them somehow

      I'm so so sorry for your loss. It must be incredibly hard to be the one left behind, wondering what you could have done. And there probably isn't anything - sometimes it's just impossible to influence another person's feelings, no matter how hard we try (speaking from experience). I hope you find a little peace with this.

    I was born a very introverted and socially awkward kid, I remember I was always different from everyone else, I had friends, some really good friends, but I knew there was something wrong with me.
    When I got to my teens years, that difference became bigger, I realized that I didn't know how to socialize like the other people, I couldn't mantain eye contact, I didn't feel comfortable talking about feelings or subjective stuff, i preferred to speak about a certain topic like geography or biology, that none of my mates understood. I got along with the weird kids group at least, we would always be together on the breaks and sometimes go out cycling or walking together. When I got to my 10 the grade, I had to say goodbye to all of them, since they all picked professional courses while I picked a scientific one. I had to make friends in a place where I basically knew no one. After 3-4 months, I managed to starting to get along with 2 guys, and later I actually started to speak with all of them during breaks, but there was still something wrong. I realized I was still different, I didn't like to speak about girls or trends like them, my only way of socializing was either trough speaking about school stuff or playing sports or cards games with them, where we all had the same objective.
    I got to 11th grade, and I decided it was time to test myself. We would be having a Erasmus project and I registered myself in. Of course, since it was based on grades, I was able to go with 5 of my classmates. That was probably one of the best/worst weeks of my life.
    During the trip, I realized that I was indeed different once again from my classmates, they would all like to hug and take photos, while all I wanted was to be alone, look at the nature from the bus window and just rest there, without saying a word. It was still a fun week, where we laughed a lot, but it was the time I realized how alone I was. And it was not my fault, I tried everything to get close friendships, but I just didn't feel comfortable talking about deep stuff with anyone, not even my parents. I got depressed and soon developed social phobia. It's been six months since the trip, I can't say I don't have friends, but I do not have any close relationship with anyone, because I can't connect with anyone, I feel like a different species from everyone else. I've been trying to study this stuff, and that is how I found out I was probably an Aspie (Autism spectrum disease). It was that moment where I realized so much about this part of my life and yet, since my country almost has no one with autism, I still feel alone and alienated, waiting someday to find someone that I can truly connect with.

    I cried during this video. I've always felt this way since I was 18. Even when I was surrounded by my online friends, I still felt like I was invisible or alone. Or I felt like I couldn't talk about anything. Especially tonight because I was hanging out with friends and I felt like I was ignored or they could care less about what I was saying. Idk if that's even true. They are most likely just busy with their own lives. But there are some days like today that make me feel like the whole world is against me. I feel like no one really cares about me. Not even my own parents. I feel like no one is listening to me. I'm just better never talking to anyone ever again.

      I cried while reading this because I can feel your pain so much. I’m 15 and I know that some of you guys will think that I’m too young or I don’t understand and I’m just following the whatever the media says, but to be honest I can feel the pain of not being able to speak to anyone and feeling isolated from others. When you’re crying/doing something fun and have so much to say about it, it hurts to realize that you have nobody that you’re comfortable with to talk too. When you do want to contact/ text/talk to someone, you always have those thoughts and beliefs in your head that tell you “nobody cares what you have to say or give a shit about you. So just stfu.” Or “if you say something they’ll think you’re weird/crazy and won’t like you anymore.” Or even “you’re wasting their time…” It really restricts you from talking to others and telling what you have to say. I’d go more in depth but it’ll be too long. (Thanks to whoever took the time to read this)

    I watched my mother go from having a well paying job, a husband, and being fit. To having a disability where she can’t work, started gaining weight, and her husband left her. Yet I have no clue how she isn’t depressed.

    • Alōkō
      Alōkō  6 dias atrás +1

      @AinTech good question...well for example...asking her how she does it may give her the opportunity to share how she looks at life dealing with them challenges and how she deals with thoughts and feelings, and that in return can inspire your mind and that of others around you.
      And secondly...maybe she feels depressed at times and you may not have picked up on it....and by you having a open conversation it may give her that space to share if she wants, which can be very valuable for her who has gone through all that you mentioned.
      But if you're not comfortable with it that's your good right too 🌸
      Either way your mom sounds like a rock!

    I remember watching this video last year and almost cried after watching because i was lonely, had developed social anxiety and also had severe problems reaching out to people. I started going out more, paid more attention to my siblings, became more vulnerable with a female friend I fancy and I just rewatched this and realized i no longer think people have negative intentions towards me. Infact, I became more positive and try to help others more. Thank you kurzgesagt. This video saved me.

    I’ve lived by a saying that “loneliness is better than pain” for some time now. It was definitely true for me when I was younger than I am now. However, as of late, I’ve been questioning whether I should still keep living by it after noticing how often I felt lonely now that school is over. Adding in that scientific explanation about our biological need for connection was eye-opening because I have became so apathetic as a result of loneliness that the only way to convince me about anything was logic or reason. That was the convincing that I needed to get me out of that mindset. Thank you!

  • Nordic Dreki

    This is very true for myself. I often thought that perhaps being introverted and not enjoying the stress of large groups of people was part of my personality, but once I actually got out into the world and was forced to adapt to new situations, I found that many of the things I worried about were not such a huge deal after all. Being saturated in overthinking can cause terrible thoughts to occur due to us trying to protect ourselves. This is especially true for me in the form of OCD, a mental disorder that causes varying levels of fear-related obsessions. The fears and lingering thoughts are like a downpour of rain that only briefly is satiated when you complete a set of what I like to call "rituals". These acts are different for everyone with OCD, but an example would be opening door handles with gloves, or perhaps washing your hands a certain number of times. Whatever the case, OCD attacks you with a sense of dread, making you feel as if something terrible will happen if you do not complete the ritual.
    what this means for me is that I have trouble functioning like a normal human being without encountering mental hurdles to allow me to proceed through life. Imagine you're on a looping track and need to run as fast as you can, but you run into a hurdle that looks like something or someone you care about. Naturally, you don't want to run into this hurdle... so, thinking you are protecting yourself and your family, you avoid the hurdle completely instead of running through it. This causing you to fall behind in life, and maybe even cripple your progress entirely. Interestingly, the brain feels happier after completing rituals, but these respites become shorter with each time you complete a ritual, as your brain begins to demand more feelings of relief. It's sort of like that adrenaline rush you get when riding a roller coaster... you know, that intense feeling where you FEEL like you are going to die, but you know you are safe at the same time. Then when you get off the roller coaster, you feel good about having that rush of fearful adrenaline. With OCD, you have a similar addiction, but it applies to many things in life. OCD cannot be cured, but can be reduced by ignoring the fearful compulsions that plague you... but it's an uphill battle for me. Some cases are mild, while others are much more severe. I fall within the moderate category though, but it's still difficult to live with.
    Overall though, it's easy to give into awful thoughts when you feel like you are only trying to protect yourself and those around you. When in reality, you're only hurting yourself and creating a cycle of self-torture that will be constantly re-affirmed by your own mind unless you begin to question and defy it. My hope for everyone is that they stand up to their own mind and begin to think critically.

      For the person who took this hard lone path should face it. Things to remember always, extroverts are not always happy they show but don't, you come alone so leave alone, never let your future occupy you for more than 10 minutes a day..yes that 10 mins for planning other than that every thought is fatal for eg: Just thinking that you are going to be alone till you die and don't have anyone to appreciate your presence is more than enough to kill you in months both mentally and physically. So the path is damn damn hard but its worth it.

    I've been feeling very lonely since my father passed away. My mom doesn't call. I write to my cousins ​​but none of them care about me. When I just started college, I was enthusiastic. I made an effort to meet people. I tried hard to get a girlfriend. they all went to someone else. I am so alone; sometimes I especially follow my phone, "it will definitely not ring even once today." and it really does happen, no message other than the one from the bank. I actually became a very extroverted person after my father died. I looked for love and attention outside. I always went and talked to all my friends. In fact, I have a group of 5 friends in my class and I met and introduced them to all of them individually. but they don't call me. If I write, we talk, we meet, but that's it. As a loner, I also study social society. Loneliness gave me high empathy. Now I know that everyone is alone. No one is absolutely happy. Everything on social media is fake. I know now. Now my expectation from life is a fit body, a successful career. I am 20 years old. but I feel like it's too late for everything. Then I say to myself, everything happens at once. Someday I meet someone somewhere and everything will be perfect after that. I'm waiting for that day and I'm self-sufficient. I am improving myself. I am having fun with myself. It is very easy to have fun in a Mediterranean country anyway. The thing that upset me was that I couldn't meet a person I loved so much when I could do these things. I went to the beach by myself 100 times. If I had gone with a girl I loved 100 times, my life would be different right now. I was taking extra good care of myself when I had someone in my life before. Now I've taught myself to do this when I'm alone. I also take care of myself when I am alone and I love myself. Because remember, there is not one more of you in the world and there will never be. We are all original people and we are all valuable. Greetings from İzmir, Turkey, friends. take very good care of yourself.

    I have never given much thoughts about loneliness before. In fact I thought I was completely fine and happy with just being alone. But after watching half of the video it hit me and I started tearing. I guess deep down I really do yearn to connect and I was suppressing it so much to the point that I don't feel the need to anymore.

    This year is my fourth year of university in a town completely separated from all of my best friends. It's always been hard, seeing them live out their lives together without me but I've somehow managed. We were all recently back in our hometown together and I think being back with them was such a high that ever since I've been back I've felt completely alone despite attempts to keep myself busy and socialise with other people in my university town. The past couple of weeks have hit really hard. I really just want to be around them. We wouldn't even have to talk. I just want to sit with them. Hug them. I'm finding it really hard to talk to them online because recently most of the time I'm on a call with them I have to mute myself so they don't know I'm crying (I'm literally muted in a call with one of them while sobbing and writing this). They don't know how I feel, and I've been meaning to talk to some of them about it for a while now but it's just. hard. I don't want to drag them down with my sob story. They deserve to live their lives without feeling guilty about me living in a town that I chose to live in. Anyways, yeah. Thank you random comment reader for listening. Know you're not alone.
    UPDATE: After ten more minutes of sobbing, I decided to reach out to a friend. It helped. I know my problem isn't gone. There are still tears coming out of my eyes, but I'm not sobbing, I'm not shaking. It was a step in the right direction. Thanks Kurzgesagt.

    From my experience one gets used to being alone to the point where being alone does not make you lonely. Live alone for year and find things you enjoy doing alone (like learning and going to the gym etc). Its all a mindset, if your alone it doesn't mean you will feel lonely for long.

It all made sense when you said that this can be the start of depression and isn't actually depression itself. And i did notice from like an year that im purposely trying to think that people only try to hurt me or make fun of me.

    This video popped up at the moment I needed it the most. Currently I haven’t been as lonely as I am today. My social circle reduced significantly (to the point which I only have one friend who I speak to every day although she’s mostly busy) and my long-time significant other left me months ago.
    This video was incredibly helpful for me because it helped me understand that I’m not exaggerating anything that I’m feeling. I don’t lack things to survive biologically at the moment, but that’s not enough for having a genuinely good life.
    Thank you for this.

    Personally I'm a loner at school but I've never felt better. Whenever I spent time with others around me I always felt excluded or tired, always worrying about whether I made mistakes while saying something, etc. I'm relieved from all that stress now. I also occasionally speak to my classmates and that feels like enough social interaction for me. Since I have a good coping mechanism I very rarely feel lonely, and only feel bored sometimes. So just as the video says, being alone doesnt mean youre lonely. And not being alone doesn't mean no loneliness. Great video.

    The last time I had a good real friend where we didn’t hang out just as school, was about 3 years ago. She was a great friend but they’re were still a few things wrong. That friendship only lasted a year because I moved, and ever since, people from that town did not keep in contact with me. I like being around my family, but I don’t tell them problems like my mental health, a lot of the time, I can’t stand them and it’s sad. Through out my entire time in band, my mom always said I would find my people in there, it’s been 4 years. I’m doing ROTC now and not enjoying it. Hate the uniform, absolutely hate on of the people in my flight, and I just can’t relate with an of em. Im going to do robotics next year and hope for the best that I enjoy that class and that I made some good friends.
    I mean, I did make friends the last 3 years I was in this town, but tbh they were shitty.
    I’ve tried my best to be open with people, but anytime I say something personal about me like my mental health, family, etc. especially if it’s mental health shit, they are like “same!” And it’s so annoying. That automatically turns off the switch that I wanted to be friends with, they just showed me they can’t be serious. But a lot of the time, they don’t show an interest in being my friend.
    I think the best option for me is to be myself, is to be a good student and study, even if people say I’m a nerd. Be passionate in band and learning and not give a shit if people are looking or not. At some point, someone will notice and be interested in me. And maybe when I get comfortable with them, and I really wanna tell them more than anything in the world, I’ll be honest with them. I’ll tell them about my brother, what I do to my body and more.
    I’m just really sick of waiting, but I know if I just push myself into friend groups, that I won’t fit in with their vibe.
    I hope it’s soon :)

    I was there.
    I rejected calls and other contacts out of pure spite after two very dear friendships collapsed out of numerous very bad things falling together in one giant dirtball.
    I had a lot of interaction with friends after that for almost 3 years, but i felt lonely. After those 3 years it got better when I entered university and built up a new peer group and freindships... but those got stale when I developed feelings for one of said friends but could not express them. I stumbeled through university for about 5 years until covid. The last 2 years have been extremely taxing for my mental health not just because of the pandemical isolation, but because of a lot of almost unimaginable bad circumstances within my social life (which have no business in the internet). Lets just say I walked on my teeth until this spring when I finally got permitted for a semester abroad in Japan. And here I am now, forming a couple of very good relationships AND I also aquired a very vital skill I had sort of before, but never understood how to use it properly: I am very open and aggressive solving problems now within these new friendships. Meaning if there is oviously something wrong, I open my mouth and ask what is going on and what bothers freinds or myself.
    This skill is so extremely valuable, but I think most people simply ignore it, because a lot of people value their pride more than friendship. As the video makes the point, it is relatively easy to cut social interaction for work or study...

    One or two very important aspects are forgotten here! From my experience. First is disappointment in specific people you spent important quality time together & then they turn out to be liars and backstabbers. This leads to a at times generalized distrust into any new friendly relationship. The other big one is; not meeting people that you actually really like and sympathize with. Common problem in my life aswell. I am just so happy having a partner who can also be a good friend.

    *The worst loneliness isn't being alone, it's being alone surrounded by the people who don't care.*

      That, and that alone, is why I don't live in a city, and refuse to.
      Being surrounded by people who don't care is probably the worst thing you can do.

      In my experience too it could be that were subconsciously not letting them know us, so we internalize them as only caring about us if we act not like ourselves. Idk if that resonates with anyone but not seeing myself as as much of a victim i think is really important for growth. If people indeed dont care thats their loss, but i feel like most of the human race is at least somewhat sympathetic

    I never realized how dangerous loneliness is. I should start doing something about it instead of using energy on grieving

    Eu sempre fui sozinho. Posso está cercado de pessoas, mas esse sentimento de tristeza e de que você é sozinho, não me deixa, eu sempre fui sozinho desde pequeno. Parece que a solidão me ajudou a eu me acostumar a viver sem depender de pessoas.

    I've never felt this lonely in my life. After I dropped out of college, everything just seems bleak. I'm at home, doing nothing and don't know what to do next. I barely have any motivation to study or to find a job. I noticed that I badly needed a friend, a physical one by my side and not just someone that I can only talk online. I badly wanted someone accompany to me in this world. I badly needed companionship.

    This video kind of made me realize that loneliness is part of the reason I overshare so much.
    I lack social interaction so much that when I finally get it I overshare like crazy and scare off new people.

      Damn, I had a friend like that.. When he started speaking he spoke his life's story and quickly made it negative rant... Nothing fun to be around. I learnt that nobody is interested in your life's story, especially if you can't tell it in interesting way.

    Was managing well enough. Had become accustomed to being alone or doing things myself - yet I still had friends to keep from feeling too lonely. Following the pandemic and quarantines, it's starting to feel more chronic

    I enjoy my alone time as an introvert, but I struggle with loneliness. And on top of that I have ADHD, anxiety and depression, alongside cerebral palsy. And it sucks because I’ve been dealing with social isolation and loneliness ever since I was a kid.

    0:30 This is exactly why we feel lonely. I been tryna say this for years now, our brain understands social media but it also knows it's a fake connection. If I send a message to a friend, even if we both lonely, that message is still send by a lonely person, to a lonely person. The only way the connection can fix that if it's in real life. Social media breaks your social life because it's faking the social contacts we ACTUALLY need

    I remember watching and scoffing at this 2 years ago. Yet now I cannot help but acknowledge the amount of Truth that is being said.
