  • depends on your situation. When i was suffering depression i always felt alone, even though i had a great family and friends.. i felt no one truly understood me and that made me feel alone, even though everyone was there to lend a hand.

  • I feel lonely at times. When everyone is in my home, I think its cause they don't fill my need to have meaning full conversations, and they always what and need from me, Maybe we both just need a break

  • Yes, if your feelings aren't understood or welcomed or validated or everyone around you is too selfish to care about your needs.

  • Yes, I definitely know that feeling. I dealt with feeling that way for a long time. Thankfully for me, not anymore! : )
