Because "feeling alone" is often made up of multiple feelings, like sadness, disappointment, hopelessness, feeling inadequate. Just knowing others are also feeling unhappy doesn't necessarily help.
Not having someone to talk to about how you feel can make a person really feel alone. We can be surrounded by a crowd of a hundred people and still feel like we're the only ones there. Having a person to talk to can really relieve that stress and make it easier to get through the day. That's why we're here at 7 Cups!
Sometimes knowing something doesn't imply we can't feel otherwise. In fact, knowing so can even bring you down sometimes, as it pictures a not-so-good perspective. However, talking to someone who feels or has felt this way can help you both.
Its a natural way to feel but u need to keep ur chin up and try and cope as best as possible and if u cant there's a Lot of trained listeners here on 7 cups who are here to help
Some people feel more lonely then others but deep down we all have people there for us even tho when we feel like this we feel like we have no one
You're the most important person to you! Loneliness can be a hard one to tackle, but just because other people feel the same too doesn't make your emotions any less important. It can be hard not to compare ourselves with others, but it isn't always productive. If knowing you're in the same boat as some doesn't help, focus on what makes you feel good rather than thinking about ithefs feeling bad.
I don't want to sound like I am trivializing your question, believe me, I respect the question, but my first impression is to say that you are not alone in feeling that way if lots of people feel the same way. To know that many people feel that way just doesn't make it easier when you are feeling alone. That is the problem, isn't it. If you want to give it a fancy name call it an "Exitensial Crisis" and know that the greatest thinkings throughout the history of civilization have tried to answer that very question. So you are in good company there. Does that add any comfort? Just please know that there is nothing wrong with feeling alone, and please do not put yourself down if you feel that way. Just the fact that you are asking that very question makes you an intelligent and empathetic person. The person to worry about is someone that feels nothing whatsoever in being alone and is indifferent to the experience. We are all conected. It is part of being human.
