Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

Hace un día

Everybody feels lonely sometimes. But only few of us are aware how important this feeling was for our ancestors - and that our modern world can turn it into something that really hurts us. Why do we feel this way and what can we do about it?
Books mentioned in the endcard:
'Emotional First Aid' by Guy Winch
'Loneliness' by John Cacioppo & William Patrick

I have suffered from loneliness and sometimes depression most of my over forty years of adult life. I once heard someone say that my wonderful upbringing inadequately prepared me for the grim reality of real life. There is a lot of truth to that, as it is a very cold, self centered world we now live in. And it has also been said that the only thing worse than being alone is wishing you were. Anyone in a bad marriage or workplace environment knows what that means. I am currently married to a woman who is gone to work thirteen hours a day, seven days a week and refuses to make time for me, and I have no close friends. Loneliness is simply a way of life some people have to accept.

This video really explains my behavior in middle to high school I use to be a very social person and then something happened that made me push people away It just kept getting worse until I just never left the house anymore I'd go to school then straight home never texting or calling school friends in my mind if they really wanted to talk to me they'd reach out two years out of high school still none of them have I texted them a few times but it would make me very nervous and I just end up retyping and rereading the my messages I think Im living a better life now I definitely feel less lonely but idk how long this can last

This video made me cry. That might sound weird but this video gave me so many realizations and it was a wake up call for me. I need to stop isolating myself. I need to stop thinking bad about other people and assuming they don't like me. I need to stop making excuses for myself to avoid people. Today I decide to invite a friend to go ice skating. I hope it helps me.

Mankind is evil, you can't open up to people and not expect to get shot, but when you do and you bounce back what else is left to experience. try again and fail harder?.... you might get lucky and succeed, but how long would it last?, the paranoia of a scorn that once healed being opened up again. You may call it fear, I'd call it planning ahead. To each his own tho, I learned a lot from this vid but, I'd rather carry my own weight.

Ther is no professional help that helps. In Scotland at least, it's so unhelpful that I'm not surprised that suicide is what people resort too, I'm sick of people who don't know what they are talking about saying "get help".

I would so love to have more friends in truth, but for me personally it’s just hard. Most of my friends, very similar like what you said in this video, are too busy to ever hang out with me on weekends, and never even text me back much through smartphone, if I’m ever gonna get a text from a friend, I’m always the one who would have do the text first, and it’s never my friends who text me, or ask me for a hangout first. I have a decent amount of common interests with my friends, in terms of TV shows and video games and such, but the amount of common interests I have are not massively big, it’s like only decent at max. I just wish I had more friends in which I can talk to, every day! Not just talk for a little bit, and then have to wait a LOOONG time so I can talk to them again. I just want good friends who I can commonly talk to at school and home, and friends who would be there for me when I’m in trouble. Friends who I have great common interests, and friends who wouldn’t betray or stab me in the back. Funny how there are literally billions of people on Earth, and that doesn’t even help, proves how much real life can suck at times lol. This comment is probably gonna sound silly, but, would be there anybody here interested in being my friend, even just for a little bit? I would adore to tell about myself and my interests. This comment will probably just get lost in the massive sea of comments of this video, but if any person finds and replies to this comment, i simply thank you

I've been alone for 20 years and I still look like I'm 16. What you talking about saying that it's gonna make me age faster? But yeah, I am often very lonely and I believe I'm depressed. Honestly, I've gotten used to it and I agree when others complain about people being "fake" today. I totally agree because they just pretend and I've always experienced people leaving me after being around them for a day.

Except for the few people in the world that I like, being around most people makes me want to isolate myself. I feel burdened by and even despise interaction of all kinds w most people. Whether I’m awkward and just can’t be myself around them, or do feel comfortable, the distaste for social interaction remains the same. Therefore I feel happier and less stressed when isolated. Why?
