The One Where You Find Yourself All Alone
You’re going to tell me that being lonely is no big deal
everyone faces depression at some point in time. But let me tell you about being lonely. Humans are a social species. We rely on connections to survive. Even the most basic connection social interactions help us keep alive. Statistics prove the subjective feeling of loneliness can increase the likelihood of premature death by 26%. If it sounds like I’m quoting this from a web series… I am. Too bad nobody paid enough attention.
I’m not talking about the garden variety ‘lonely in a crowd lonely’. That’s everyone, every day. And it’s not ‘when will I find love’ kind of lonely. Or that ‘the people are mean to me’ kind of lonely. The kind of lonely I am talking about is when you feel you’ve got nothing left. Nothing. Like you’re drowning, and no one will throw you a line. Maybe that kind where you think no one truly sees you.
What if the only way not to feel bad, is to stop feeling, anything at all, forever?
Well, firstly there is an ‘if’ in the question. And where there is an ‘if’, there is a possibility. And secondly, let me tell you that it isn’t the only way.
Maybe none of us can truly say who we are because we tend to hide our true selves. But keeping it in, that’s not brave. Feeling the pain, face it, that takes courage.
Whatever happens, keep moving. Get through it, choose to live. ‘ Cause even on the worst day, there are people who love you. There’s new music waiting for you to hear, something you haven’t seen before that will blow your mind in the best way. Even on the worst day, Life is a pretty Spectacular thing.
