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?

You can try to ignore it. All your other feelings go. Loneliness is the last to go and then you are just a shell of a human being living in a world full of people who feel and all you can do is look on without understanding as to how anyone could hold onto their feelings for so long when all they felt like was unending pain.

Being alone and loneliness are not the same thing. I spend most if my life in total isolation, and I rather enjoy it. I like me. Lonely is what you feel when, 1) you're alone and, 2) you know yourself to be a bad person. It does no good to socialize with mental defectives, no matter how popular that mental defective may be. That's what leads to social collapse and democide... I rather like being excluded by degenerates...

cultural revolution. the conservative always dies. gets left in the past. you might be left in the past and hate your friends for moving on to a retarded future. also you have a higher intelligence.. your skeptical of stupid ideas because you naturally know the answer. its called rationalism.. Albert Einstein, Testla, and many more people who have high IQs, they have an isolation trate.. but the profession they take on, they become experts... they natirally pick up the skill far faster than someone trying to learn in.. dont reach out.. youll get your guns take and labeled a terrorist by a fisa court pact.. they will look at your online profile of you like your a terrorist.. think outside the box.. chinas the knew world bank. americas 22 trillion in debt... we are changing our culture to conserve for these changes.. happens a lot through out history and people like secretes are born.. asking why are people such idiots

This feels like an anti suicide campaign. Can we get some actually good content, instead of trying to make sad lonely freaks feel better. If you watched this video and now you feel like being a sad lonely freak is normal then you are a beta and will die alone.

Most people are trash anyways, they will drain your energy then when you need help, they will just leave you suffering. Don't need that shit in my life. Just choose to hang with like minded people that are not negative or toxic in any way and you will live the happiest life ever.

The most dangerous aspect in modern times is that lonliness is seen almost as shameful because you're EXPECTED to be happy like "everyone else": we're expected to be popular and social, everyone shares on social media how they're great in life and had a good timeevery day when most of the times is only a lie. I think this facade lead to be more lonley both who compare his life with "social media lies" and sees himself as unfit and also for who's addicted to continuing this masquerade to fool himself to being happy.

Legal o video mas acho que tem mais haver com exclusão do que solidão. Você querer se isolar de más amizades é natural, as pessoas se deixa envolver pelas aparências enquanto algumas se envolve pelas atitudes e justamente esse o problema hoje em dia, as pessoas não valoriza mais a pessoa pelo o que ela pensa, acredita e pelas atitudes. A individualidade e o egoismo se tornou tão grande que não importa mais o que o individuo pensa e sim o que o individuo desperta no outro, se desperta desejo ter tudo se não desperta nada a pessoa é "descartável". O ser humano precisa entender o proximo pra conseguir entender o mundo ou viverá apenas na sua bolha de "sonhos"...

Not gonna lie, I am guilty of some of the self destructive 'feedback loop' of loneliness described in this video, but putting that aside I've honestly been alone my entire life, had loner tendencies since I was very young, been betrayed by my closest friends, repeatedly, for trivial reasons to the point where I ended up just slowly drifting social groups, usually being the quiet introspective one who didn't contribute to decisions being made. One of the upsides, if there is such a thing, of constantly self criticising is I ended up not blaming others for my lack of a social life, at some point I realised it was to some extent it was my fault, so I ended up not interpreting social interactions as hostile, because I didn't assume the worst about the person approaching me for whatever reason, but I never opened up to others either, so I managed to avoid the trap of being defensive in social situations but still fell into the traps of rather being anywhere else other than a social situation, even dropping out of parties, leaving wedding receptions early (if I could), and so on. It means I am very functional at nearly every other necessary aspect of life so thats good at least. I am now in a state of long term depression, so long now I have long since considered it normal, but a year ago it got so bad that I eventually bit the bullet, swallowed my pride and went to get help despite my suspicion of psychologists. I am sad to say it did not work out for me, turns out antidepressants are literally the fucking worst if you don't get the right kind the first time around (or in my case have a potential genetic incompatibility with it) and the best course of action is to try multiple kinds one after the other each course recommending an even longer dosage than the last recommendation to see any positive effects emerge and all I got out of it was some part of my brain on the left hand side feeling actually physically number than before (never mind the utterly PLEASANT effects the pills had on me while I was on them). I'm not knocking them if they do work for you, but from personal experience, I am never fucking trying them again, I would rather live with the depression than go through that shit for the rest of my life. Again, don't take my word as being against them if they do work for you, like I said I might just have a rare 'fuck you' mutation with regards to them in general. All that aside, I am surprised the video made NO link between the omnipresence of social media overtaking actual interaction might be contributing to the loneliness, but whatever.

Alone is the only place I can be comfortable. It use to hurt but in an odd way that pain has become the only comfort I can accept. The only friendship I have is with someone who at times I just feel like wants to use me and we only tolerate each other because there is no one else to talk to. We only met in person a few times while they visited, but other than that I am alone.

Other friendships just consist of unanswered messages with the occasional okay or hmm but after a while it is easy to leave a one-sided relationship.

To say loneliness will kill me at the same rate as smoking a pack a day is absolutely ridiculous. I've made a point to never do weed or take drugs or anything that my body wasn't meant to receive, and I even exercise sometimes. What the fuck am I supposed to do if i'm lonely? I'm not equal to cigarette smokers. I found that statement offensive and struggle to accept it as scientifically accurate. Natural brain chemicals are different than pollutants in your lungs.
