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.

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.
