Are you lonely? The feeling of loneliness is not the same as being alone. Being alone is a state of being, like living away from friends or family, while loneliness is a feeling. There’s a saying that you can feel lonely even when surrounded by people, simply because when you are feeling lonely, you feel disconnected from the people around you. Sometimes, feeling loneliness is also a sign of depression where you just have apathy to almost all things and ‘don’t care’ anymore. Do you think you might be feeling chronic loneliness?
