Loneliness — The Science Behind It & Its Effects On Physical Health

lonelinessFilip Gjorgoski – Loneliness can be harsh. Not having people in your life that you can talk to, can make you feel empty and disconnected from the world.

Ways to Stop Feeling Lonely and Isolated

lonelinessSal Mateo – You’re surrounded by people. They’re laughing, smiling, and talking. Everyone seems to be having a great time – they all seem to feel so connected with each other. But no matter how much you want that feeling, you can’t help but feel completely alone.

Can you relate to these feelings?

Can you relate to being in a room full of people but feeling totally alone and isolated inside?
