Today we report on loneliness.
– What do you feel when you are lonely?
– What is loneliness actually?

Loneliness is the worst poverty and the feeling of being unnoticed and unwanted.  Only in the moment of loneliness do we realize how much the closeness of a certain person means to us.  – Mother Theresa

You are lonely when you are marginalized by friends, classmates, or maybe even family – you feel alone and unprotected.

Loneliness can arise from many possible situations. Bullying is the everyday thing, if you are bullied once or constantly, you are afraid to open up to others and seek closeness, because you no longer have confidence and you think that the person would then do the same with you – so you get used to being alone most of the time.

You want to escape this situation? Then you've come to the right place!

Of course, I can't speak for everyone, but it helped me personally to write down all my feelings somewhere. Most of the time I did this at night because I was more thoughtful and focused.

What do you achieve through these notes?

Through the notes you've written down, you can see if you've felt a relief after completing a chapter of your "story." In addition, you will notice over time whether you have become happier or sadder and even more lonely from day to day. When you became happy, you achieved it. :)

But if this method didn't work, try to talk openly about it with a person you trust – then you'll feel a little relieved. Your trusted person will certainly help you in some way by giving you e.B. advice that you will get along with to some extent.

It is important not to give in to the feeling any further, but to tackle it.

"The worst loneliness is not being able to stand yourself." – Mark Twain

So be yourself and don't let people get you down easily!

What can you do about being alone?
How and where can I find someone who shares the same interests as me?

Most young people attend concerts or clubs, youth centres, clubs and many different events. Maybe you will find someone there who shares the same interests as you. Surely it will happen that you make friends with someone there. How it happens, you should not worry about it. As soon as someone approaches you, the rest happens by itself. Be open to your fellow human beings, even if you see them for the first time – dare to address people you find sympathetic.

I believe in you and so should you! <3
