FaceNo one deserves to feel alone. Loneliness is a feeling that cuts like a newly sharpened knife. It’s one of the worst feelings there is, because it makes you feel scared, helpless, and worthless. You’re scared because you don’t know where to turn, helpless because you feel no one is around to help you thrive, and worthless because no one seems to care.

I know the feeling of loneliness well. I know everyone feels lonely.  I feel my mental illness made it more prominent.  I’ve spent many of my days sitting in my room with tears pouring down my face. Why? It’s because I thought no one understood, and that no one ever would.  It’s terrifying thoughts like that that made me depressed and anxious.

Even though I’ve been through all that, and it was terrible, I found people who would listen. I reached out and found what I need to feel cared about. Remember there is always someone that cares. Go find them! There are plenty people out there who will be there to support and love you for who you are.
