During depression, the world disappears. Language itself. One has nothing to say. Nothing. No small talk, no anecdotes. One’s real state of mind is a source of shame. So one is necessarily silent about it, leaving nothing else for subject matter.

Kate Millett, The Loony Bin Trip

Everyone is different; Everyone has different hopes and dreams; Everyone reacts differently to every situation and feels different emotions.

Just as we are all different, so are the reasons people feel lonely.

Are you aware of anyone in your friendship group who seems quieter than usual, who’s maybe not socialising with the group as they used to do? Is it possible they may be feeling lonely?

Don’t think just because someone is always surrounded by other people that they can’t possibly feel lonely, because as I’ve said before, it is definitely possible to feel lonely in a crowd!

Make today the day you reach out and help someone who is suffering from feelings of loneliness.reach-out
