There may be many reasons for this. Without knowing your story specifically, it is hard to answer. Try striking up a conversation with a listener. If that does not help, seek professional help.

Many times we get so busy with every day life that we forget to take time out for ourselves. When we don't have much time to ourselves this means we also may not have time for the people in our lives. Take some time out today to call, message, or visit a friend or family member.

I don't know. I feel alone too. I don't think it's worth getting through this for me. It's only going to come back again.

Well it is really strange situation when you feel empty deep in yourself. A good change is to determine which activity fulfills you and makes you happy, and start practicing it. That activity itself will make you feel Happy

Because you think no one can understand you. No one can feel what you feel. You think no one is interested to you

We feel alone because we believe that no one understands or feels the same way that we do. Sometimes it is helpful though to talk about how we are feeling, then we realize there are others who feel things similar to us.

You aren't alone, I am here and so many other people around you are here to help and support you when there is no one else there. You may feel lonely but trust me you aren't.

Maybe overthinking things can make you feel this way. Call a friend to go out. Or even come here to talk. Just know your never aline.

Loneliness is a pretty intense feeling. When stuff gets serious and you find that you’re not feeling great a lot of the time, it can help to know some simple steps that might help you get back on track. But if nothing gets better, it might be worth looking deeper into why you are feeling so lonely.

Sometimes you do have people around you and still feel alone, it is probably because you think that the people surround you don't understand you, you have to find the right person and the confidence to tell them what's on your mind.

You feel alone because the people who surround you maybe don't give you much attention or don't show you that they care or that you are good company.

lack of social encounters with people and loved ones can affect the person greatly and make them feel lonely.

People can feel alone when they think nobody understands them, or nobody cares about them. This feeling is normal. We all feel like this at times.. and it is because we all need people around us. We need support and company. People cannot live without people.

Feeling alone often stems from a lack of immediate, close support. It is something that everybody craves and needs to maintain healthy mental health. Reach out or get out of the house and spend some time with people and you will soon discover that being alone and being lonely don't have to be the same thing.

This may be because you do not have anyone to rely on, anyone you really, truly trust in your life right now. Maybe you're having an unstated family problem, perhaps you don't have a close friend you can tell anything to.

Because sometimes you feel like you don't fit in and you end up isolating yourself even more. But the thing is there's always someone else who also feels alone, and when you're together there's no one alone~

Maybe because you're surrounding yourself with negative people or stuck in boring activities .. Try to do something new that you could like and make new friends, it's interesting!

You're no alone. There are more people there for you than you think. Chin up! Don't feel so bad about yourself.

Sometimes we feel alone when we're not socialising enough, or talking very much, which may seem obvious, but could easily be overlooked when we get wrapped up in work/etc. Taking time to set aside and reach out to friends/relatives, or even find someone online to chat with can alleviate these feelings. You can also try and make plans with friends etc, even if it's just going to lunch or for a walk.

Sometimes we can feel so alone because it can feel like nobody understands our problems. People to not typically talk about their personal issues on an every day basis and so it can be hard to feel like there is anyone else out there in the world who is suffering as much as you are.

The need for acceptance and understanding that is not met leads to loneliness. It is normal to feel alone, it is part of being human.

Sometimes we can feel like we're alone, but that really doesn't mean that we are - there are always people around, especially on 7 cups, just sometimes in the moment, we don't feel so great, and so it feels as though no one is there for us.

More often, it's the lack of understanding and non-judgmental people in our life that makes us feel alone.

You feel alone because you feel like no one is there for you. You are invisible or a tiny spectacle of dust. You have friends, but they are not your friends. You feel silenced and forgotten. You feel left-out and alienated. Your family barely talks to you or doesn't understand your situation or what you are feeling. Your friends just give you drugs or don't want to deal with it. You have no one else, but only you. The very thought of that existing in your mind makes you feel alone.

Sometimes, it can be because you feel neglected by family or friends. We all need to some to listen to us and be there for us.

I feel alone most of the time. I don't know what to do that time. It was like everything is blank and no one is there. There is no one who can understand you.. everyone have issue in life there is someone who need you.. make yourself happy with others happiness.. your family is always there for you who cares for you. So being strong nd make yourself strong

Personally, I have a hard time finding someone who is like-minded or someone who understands me. I have a lot of family and friends who love and support me, but sometimes you just feel like you're on your own because you can't talk about your thoughts or feelings. You feel like they won't understand and it's better to keep those thoughts to yourself. But hey, sometimes you just need to give someone a chance to listen to you. I'm sure they will at least try to understand. Find something to connect yourself to your loved ones, talk to them. If you're looking for a friend, we're always there to help.
