Sometimes people can fell alone even if they are actually not. This is because of condition which cause us to fell lonely. We just must look around us more carefully and notice people there for us

You haven't talked to anybody about your problems and/or issues yet. You still have them on your chest.

The feeling of being alone can come and go or seem to stick with you for a long period of time, but everyone feels it at some point in their life over the years. Even while being surrounded by friends or family you can feel alone. It's not just psychological, but also on a physiological level. If your body isn't producing the right amount of serotonin then you can being to feel less like yourself and more isolated. If you feel alone because you don't think you have anyone, then talk to someone on here. There are plenty of people who would love to befriend you and show you love and compassion.

you may feel alone because you have forgotten how many people truly care about you. At 7 cups we are here how can we help you ?

Because when you are alone for most of the day that is just how you feel. You are alone, not talking to anyone for 10 hours a day? ALONE.

You may feel alone because you aren't around the right type of people. To be around the right type of people you will never feel alone and will be filled with positive vibes

Sometimes you may feel alone because you have recently been in a fight with a friend, or joined/started something new like changed schools and your body hasn't been able to adapt tot he new change!

I've felt alone because I've stopped myself from reaching out to those who love me. I've assumed that they don't care about me or that listening to me will simply burden them. I've felt alone in a crowd before because I've felt like the group don't really like me and I'm forcing my company upon them. None of my assumptions and beliefs were true, but I felt like they were. I made myself alone. I would distance myself from others because i thought they didn't like me and as a result, I came across to people as unapproachable. This discouraged people from starting conversations with me, and because of that, i became even more conscience that no one liked me. It was a downward spiral.

i feel alone when someone who is very close to me break my trust and faith on them. It is very difficult to understand, why always me? definitely something is wrong in me that's why always wrong happening with me.

The feeling of "loneliness" is a normal human emotion. Sometimes it's from not much interaction with people, depression or sometimes even if you're missing someone. there are always people out there to help with loneliness.

I feel so alone because I feel that everyone is moving forward with their lives while I am moving backward. New relationships, marriage, kids, career success are happening to those you love all around but you are falling apart. You do not want to plague people with your problems but just wish sometimes someone would ask me how I am doing. So I can say I am not doing good. Just to listen to me without judgement and tell me I am okay and that I am still a good person. That even though a big part of your life has changed you are still okay.

The feeling of loneliness can be caused by lack of good friends you can talk to or just being introverted and keeping yourself distant from your friends for a long period of time, so if you feel like that, talk to parent, go out with friends your friends so you don't lose contact or talk to your therapist.

Sometimes we can be in a crowded room and feel alone other times it maybe because we isolate ourselves from friends or family. Sometimes it is ok to want to be alone but always remeber to do things you love so you do not feel alone.

We feel alone because we are human. It's normal to feel this way. So when we do feel alone the first thing to remember is that, we are not alone feeling this way and, like everything, it will pass. We need this solitude to reflect on our real self sometimes (not society's self) and make the appropriate changes to better "I" first. Glad to read you're human. B-Blessed

Its hard to know exactly why one feels alone. It could be due to many reasons in your life. If you are experiencing difficulty you can always come to 7cups of tea to talk with one of the many listeners. Or you could perhaps look into you local community for volunteer opportunities to help extend your time to others. Including Nursing homes, hospitals, churches, or animal shelters.

Feeling alone can be brought on by mental illness, or just lack of friends and compassion from others.

Do you go to school/ work? Do you talk to people? How many friends do you have? Any relationship partner? Do you have family?

Because I haven't come to accept who I am and my idiosyncrasies so I look for company with other people

Sometimes when we feel alone, it doesn't always mean we ARE alone. Human beings have a tendency to let one thing bring them down even if there is a million other things going right for them, and lots of people out there supporting them. Look around you and see how many people are there for you.

Feeling alone is more a desire for a need to be alone. Sometimes we must go within ourselves in order to see who we are currently. Being alone is never wrong or right, sometimes being alone might be the answer to a problem. Remember to always ask yourself, "Who can I call?" and if calling someone isn't something one might do, ask yourself "Why?". It's always best to act on our words rather than constantly questioning ourselves. While questions do lead to answers, sometimes answers lead to more questions, and those questions lead to real answers.

At times I understand that you may feel that the world is against you. That there is no one who supports you but believe me that it isn't that way. You are to alone, you have me.

When we start feeling isolated, we may have thoughts of not belonging or of feeling rejected by others. What we overlook, however, is that when we are alone, we are often in the company of our worst enemy- the onewithin ourselves. An isolated space is the perfect breeding ground for negative, self-critical thoughts. These thought patterns make up the “critical inner voice (CIV),” an internalized enemy that leads to self-destructive thought processes and behaviors. This inner critic feeds into our feelings of isolation, encouraging us to avoid others and remain in a lonely state.

U'r not alone. I am available for u. Whenever u need someone to talk to, contact me. I'll do my best to help u

You are never alone on here. You can always connect to someone, and if you ever feel alone in real life, just remember that someone will always love you.

Sometimes I feel alone because I think nobody will ever understand me or what I'm going through. But putting yourselves in other people's shoes help understand them better :)

Feeling alone is a natural thing to do in certain points in life. Sometimes experiences make us feel this way or nothing at all. If you feel this way I encourage you to perhaps join a club, talk to friends, invite friends to events or make plans with them. Even making plans with family can be a great way to reconnect and start feeling better. There are many people that do not want you to feel alone and are here for you no matter what. For example us here at 7 Cups of Tea, our listeners are definitely here to help, listen, and talk.

I feel so alone for unknown reason. Even though I have many friends but still I felt like alone. And maybe because I felt like the world just turned its back at me.

You probably have depression. Try going to a doctor or someone for help. That's why you feel sad and alone.
September 20th, 2015 11:08pm
Sometimes even when you are surrounded by others you might feel alone. Maybe it's because they just don't understand, or maybe it's because you are afraid to trust someone enough to let them in.

You feel so alone because you feel that you do not belong. You do belong.
