There’s nothing worse than feeling alone and actually being so, be it generally or romantically.
An agonizingly slow melt in some molten lava right before the gasses rise and essentially cause parts of your body to explode until you’re entirely submerged under the 1,000+ celsius sludge could be worse, but then I suppose it depends just how much you hate being alone!
To all you single Pringles: you may not have a warm body next to you at night, with two ears to listen to your woes, and lips to kiss away your pain, but across the interwebs, through the phone lines, and over the seas, rivers, and oceans are people who may just think about you and care about you more than you realise.
It may be cliché, but we’re in this together.
Are you depressed? According to the World Health Organization, apparently “an estimated 350 million people of all ages suffer with depression,” worldwide, so the next time you think you’re the only one going through the pain you have, think again.
There are many mental health disorders and I think you’ll find that you’re not the only one. There are almost 7.4 billion people living on this planet, so the chances of there being people like you aren’t quite as low as you may sometimes think.
There are many organisations dedicated to helping people who suffer, whether you’re homeless, starving, a vulnerable child, struggling with old age, suffering with mental health problems, or just need someone to talk to. There are people out there who care.
I know what you’re thinking: you may still be physically alone, and yes, that could well be true for you as it at least romantically is for me, but until that changes, it’s worth keeping in mind that we’re not quite as alone as you may think.
