      Your video assumes people have a wife and children btw. Most of us don't have a wife and children, look at the birthrates. I know someone could be lonely in a marriage but it's highly improbable.

      I gotta ask... what if there is more than just that going on? I got a "step" father who didnt marry my mother cause hes "waiting"for 5 damn years but is her fiance. See I'm lonely since my mother moved away from my true father and I was emotional so kids didn't like me... I've looked over my life and this is still going on... I go to a school learn how to act from it, move again redo everything half year later do it again then when the years done, it happens again... I try to make conversation with people but they just dont listen. I am lonely but it falls from my past... what would I do then? I should tell my mother to leave him, and a major stress would go away but then we would just be like before...

    I've become complacent if I'm to be honest. My form of brain damage makes it really complected to hold a conversation. Funny thing really, it's not that I don't know how to talk, only that it's VERY hard to make words most of the time and even when they are coming out correctly I've nearly lost the ability to control the tone of my voice. Been 10 years now, and nothing ever changes because even the people I've known all along don't want to deal with me... I'm still the same me but I suppose at times I talk too loud or so low that it's hard to hear me and even at that I start to slur or spend too much time trying to bring words to my tongue. Still, I don't pick up on it until the person I'm talking to has had enough of me and just kind of walks away.
    After that, they (Friends and family, well not so much friends because I lost all of them years ago) start to think that I'm kind of stupid and that frustrates me tons, I mean it has been 10 years and every year it only gets a little worse... I've built all of their computers and repaired most of our household plumbing problems but now I'm just being overlooked. I ask if they need help or if I CAN and for the last 3 years my offers have been rejected. No, it's okay, (Insert a friend's name here) is coming over and he can do it. Unless it's something that they don't want to make their friends do... Like, let's say clean the grease trap in the septic tank because that's a me job.
    It sucks too because I spent most of my youth learning how to do the things I'm overlooked for. I'm not dumb though, I swear and I've never broken the things I mean to fix... From 22 to 32 and in the middle nothing has happened, the brain thing makes it to where I cannot drive and the place I live has no bus lines and even if I HAD a bus line the fare is now $5.00. See, this is all crying on and I know it but that's just how it is and I figured that a video like this one would be an okay place to share it all. I'm not trying to make anyone feel anything at all, I'm just speaking my life with my fingers but this whole thing is TL;DR I do, however, hope that someone reads this or I will just tell myself someone did read it and that will be good enough for me. A decade of being lonely starts to make you feel numb, I guess.
    It's not all bad though, my dog has been alive for 10 years in July and she is a Pomeranian so at the very least if she stays healthy I will have a friend until I'm nearly or 40, or maybe she will live to be 20 and I will have here until I'm 42! Cool really, she adopted me (Complicated, she was NEVER my dog but she made me her human.) when I was 22, and she could be my dog from the age of 22 to 40! I love her a whole lot too because she never gets upset when I have trouble speaking, or walking or don't want to get out of bed because my legs are being buttholes and don't want to keep me stable.
    Moral of the story is: Dogs make the best of friends! Hannah took me from the end of adult childhood and may be there for when I become middle age! Dogs save lives.

    It seems that a lot of problems we experience are down to us evolving our societies faster than our bodies and minds can evolve to keep up. Fundamentally we're the same as cavemen, just with thousands of years of accumulated knowledge which we've used to shape the world around us. Makes you wonder what humanity would be like if we could evolve as fast as bacteria and viruses do to cope with changes in their environment.

    I am also in a process of getting rid of friends which wish me bad things, they are pretty easy to spot once you look closer.
    I feel lonely when those fake or impuslive friends insist on to go out with them, but i refuse most of the times now.
    I have a few buddies with whom I hang out and a girlfriend. They are enough, but it is hard to ignore those bad ones, the world is full of them, so its normal to become alert at some point in life, in a defensive position.
    Better feeling lonely then bored with the wrong people around you, or even annoyed and furious. And when you ll find that one friend or friends, you ll appreciate them so much.

    JustGame 13 hours ago

    I felt this way a few years back, I thought all of my friends were out to get to me, I became super anxious whenever they called and usually just ignored it. I did whatever I could to avoid going out. Thankfully I’m passed it and love going out with my friends, sometimes abit too much when I have university deadlines. Funnily enough it was a USclip channel called ThatWasEpic that helped me, he’s this guy that goes up to random people and says funny/embarrassing stuff. Made me realise no matter how awkward a situation may seem nothing bad happens in fact it’s actually quite therapeutic to laugh at yourself and reflect on social situations positively no matter how stupid you may have felt

    Maybe this is a stretch but I think morality has it's roots in avoiding loneliness. Back in the days it meant death if you were kicked out of a community (stated in the video). There for you had to figure out how other people expect you to behave AKA to know what is ok to do and what is not AKA to know what is wrong and what is right AKA have a moral.

    Nothing is forever, and people can only be in a person's life for only so long (as they can also be in one place for one period of time for only so long). So it's about creating the best memories in a moment and holding onto them as long as possible, while simultaneously feeling like one can reconnect to those people and experiences that prevents loneliness (at least for me).

    • hawaiisunfun
      hawaiisunfun 13 hours ago

      It would be nice to create virtual people and experiences, to virtually create elongate the everlasting feeling. The issue is that even that has shortcomings, because people live in the real world and cannot experience the virtual world forever (even a virtual world has bearings in reality, as it's limited by time) if they try to connect to it with their human bodies. People still can only be in one place at one time and don't live forever. So it's really difficult to counteract loneliness no matter what, as long as reality exists in a person's life. Just making the most of what we have is the best we can do.

    Thank you for making this video. I have always thought that these feelings of mine have simply been a consequence of my depression. After hearing about the symptoms of loneliness, it kind of brightened my day a little. I actually realised at some point that I've been categorising neutral-happy emotions as negative. There were moments where it did improve, but it seemed to be a rather persistent event. I felt that this video was exactly what I am like. I'm very happy to have seen this video.

    When people say the wrong thing to me (like unconsciously opening up a trauma that I closed in my head, because they don't know me), it makes me want to not be around them. After a while of avoiding many people, there are fewer people around me and ones I want to talk to. Then I get lonely. The more open social experiences are (when people want to talk to/connect with me deeply and I want to be around them and do the same), the less lonely I get. Thank you Kurzgesagt for having this video. It came at the right time where I got lonely after this situation happened and the person left my life for future pursuits (which I hoped for, as I wanted what was best for them, as they made me feel less lonely, but I didn't want to talk to them but instead wanted them to move forward in their life, which they did). This video helps

    I'm no expert I'm just some random twelve-year-old, but just so you know there's always somebody out there who loves you. You just need to search for them and be open about who you are. Don't go around hiding your feelings, be open. If somebody is mean to you be nice to them because they probably have it hard at home. If you are nice to them after a while they'll be nice back. As said I'm no expert but at least i hope this will make you feel a little bit better.
