Hey there, thanks for getting in touch!
First off, we want to say you’re incredibly brave for reaching out. Feeling lonely, even when surrounded by people, can be tough. It’s like being in a crowded room but feeling like you’re invisible, right? It’s a confusing and isolating feeling, but please know, you’re not alone in feeling this way. Many young people experience similar emotions, even if they don’t always talk about it.
It’s important to acknowledge your feelings and understand that they are valid. Sometimes, just recognising and accepting how you feel can be a big step towards feeling better. Remember, it’s ok not to be ok sometimes. You’re human, and it’s natural to have ups and downs.
But hey, reaching out like you did takes courage, and that’s something to be proud of. You’re already taking steps to connect and seek support, and that’s a positive move. Whether it’s talking to a trusted friend, family member, or a professional, opening up can help lighten the load. This article may be helpful for you
