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?

    Ever since I got into my second year of university, I was not doing well mentally and emotionally. I was more sensitive and desperate for attention, locking myself away, not even checking my school email for important contacts. Lately it's turned into anxiety and feeling unsure on what I wanted to do with my life after spending so many years positive what I wanted to do. I found I wasn't happy where I was, especially when taking into account that loneliness had hit me harder than ever before. I was in a new city, away from family and all the friends I knew-- only my best friend came with me, and I'm always so scared that my clinging onto her will push her away (despite her constantly reassuring me otherwise). In order to put myself at ease, I started writing short term goals on sticky notes and putting them on the wall above my head when I lay down in bed. There are some along the lines of wanting to be better at cosplay or dancing more, and on some others, there's stickies about wanting to be more independent or social, but in the center of it all, I put "accept yourself," "like yourself," "love yourself," and "be happy." When I feel I've accomplished a sticky note, I decorate it however I want to signify a change within me-- a sprouting bud ready to flourish once all the others are decorated. Since then, I haven't had an episode. Sure, the loneliness still creeps up on me at times, but I'm able to suppress it when I start working toward my sticky note goals or when I just clean the apartment. It's not a perfect system, but it works in keeping me calm and ensuring I don't do anything that will harm my psyche. It really helps me breathe.

    I’m a high school sophomore and always feel alone around my friends. Some of my friends have girlfriends, whom which I am friendly with. But, for background, I lived most of my life in a shell because of shyness. Anyway, when I’m around friends I see them talking to each other and I see that they want to talk to them. No one ever wanted to talk to me. Unless it was for homework because I’m the only student who does it apparently. No one ever once seemed to want to talk to me. Not one friend for the past 4 years that I have lived in this place. No one time someone took an interest in me. Not one time did anyone take the time to ask how my day was or if they wanted hangout or how I felt. I guess no one cares. I guess they don’t care. No one ever looked at me and thought “ I wonder if we can hangout”. I constantly overhear people inviting other friends over to their house. I always wondered what they were doing or what were they going to do. But no one ever asked me. So, I know my life seems pretty sad, but I’m trying to fix it. Hopefully I will connect to my friends and build strong bonds with them. Thanks for listening.

    So I have a pretty lonely experience throughout my schooling and university years I'd like to share, if you don't care about it then don't bother reading since it's pretty long and (probably) not worth your time. Ever since I went to University I pretty much went into the biggest social isolation I've ever experienced. Now this is nothing new for me, I've always been that one kid that doesn't really care about social interaction.I didn't have social anxiety, I just didn't bother talking to people. But even then I still had at least 1-2 people I could genuinely talk to. I've always had a bitter culture clash with more liberal (not political, cultural) people because I was raised on very tough discipline by my military family from Russia, meanwhile other people around here were more open about their sex life, and do drugs and other strange things I never really considered nor cared about like gender identity, dyed hair, etc., and I never really got used to it at all because it felt kind of alien to me, and it certainly brought disgust to my parents. The best way I could cope with it right now was learning patriotism (if you couldn't tell by the amazing pfp), listening to American march music, saying the pledge of allegiance every time I wake up, and many other things to pay respects. It may sound strange to many of you, but for me it just felt like the right thing to do as many people my age take their country for granted because they were born here and didn't get to choose where they were born, but my family and I did choose, and we chose this country to live in. When I was younger I didn't really care much for my new country, but it has helped my family and I much more than where we hailed from, and I've gotten very grateful for the opportunities it gave me because of that. Unfortunately, hawk-eyed readers can see that earlier I said that I had to learn patriotism because my school never really taught us much except the pledge of allegiance, a minor setback, but the Internet helped. University as a result of all this got a bit less painful, but if I'm being honest, it's still very rough and excruciating mentally and emotionally, however at least I can feel a bit more at ease when I see some ROTCs walking around, knowing they got our backs. I do apologize to anyone that doesn't agree with something I said, it's all my personal opinion and leave it at that. But yeah, that's my $0.02, thanks for taking the time to read it.

    Still, what do I/we do about time. Anyways, to be honest I don't really want many friends and I like being alone, but not entirely. All I really want is for one person to love, and them to love me the same way and for us too understand each other. (and maybe a friend or two) But most people in this modern day and age act so different (compared to me) and are interested in such nonessential and random things (like all the popular trends), wich is fine. It just feels to me there's just no one to connect too.

    Congrats on being #1 on tending! Too bad it had to be such a somber topic, but it does seem like an important one. I've been working on this for myself for the last few years, and I still have reservations about going out. I've been going out more to the movies and to dinner with some people, and trying to not take much of anything too literally, as that tends to not be the best way to go about people.
