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 a deep conflict right now that kinda relates to this. My parents are forcing me to invite friends over to my birthday party. I really don't want to as I feel extremely anxious. What should I do?

im always by myself because i have so many trust issues. when someone hurts you in a big way there's a part of you that won't ever bounce back from it. i used to be so social, so friendly, so happy, but now, idk. now i push other's away in fear of being hurt again. i know feeling this can be very common, so if you ever feel like this, just know that you aren't alone and im here for you 💞

I just wanted to say, that I my mind is blown. I do follow your videos for a year or two now, and I also have high expectations to your videos (because they are usually very informative, entertaining and have just the right level of explaining a complex topic), but this one was by far the best I‘ve seen in a while. Although I consider myself as a person, that isn’t lonely too often, and although I am a teen with a lower amount of live experience than many other people watching this video, I still found a large amount of the points you made relatable, whether I know them from myself, friends or class members. That really was quality content and I am happy, to have learned two or three things yet again. Btw, I am happy to be corrected on grammar or spelling mistakes because I am not a native speaker.

For the last 50-100 years we've been structuring all of our new cities and local communities with profit as our main concern instead of building social spaces for people to interact. Why are we so surprised that this is happening? Start building community centers again, public squares, cultural festivals, block parties! Rebuild our public transportation so that people can actually get around town in an affordable way. If you have harsh DUI laws and no public transit, people stay home! People go to the internet out of desperation to find some sort of community because they have no local community. People don't know their neighbors, so they go online and then just find people like them and live in an echo chamber. Why can't apartments and communities be built in a way so you can actually get to know people? They make it really hard. Also communities need to stop cracking down on every kid having a stupid party and every night club in America. Local ordinances have destroyed social scenes every time they try to get started. Blame local and state officials for these problems. They don't want people to socialize. What they want is more strip mall and businesses that don't facilitate a social environment.

Every day try to say "hello" to a stranger that you find attractive. Nothing bad can happen because you will probabely wont see them ever again and trust me , it helps A LOT with reducing anxienty and becomming more social.

There’s also a thing called “Fake Depression” and a lot of people have it, and they think it’s real depression. Little do they know, they don’t know how good they have it until it’s eventually all taken away, then they can REALLY experience what being depressed is like.

The cringe clique comments about “you’re not alone” ect are futile, they don’t change anything. Everyone needs a bit of solitude in their life, maybe not all the time but at least once in a while. Solitude allows you to think to yourself for a bit and realize everything going around you.

Part of it is the disposable way that we treat each other. I had a girl that I hung out with a few weeks ago who said she was looking for a relationship at the time, I wanted a relationship too and after we hung out she sort of gave me the cold shoulder and said she wasn't sure what she was doing with her life, etc. Then a week later I see a snap story she posted where she said she hung out with a guy who wasn't sure about having a relationship(different guy) she wanted a relationship with (after she told me she didn't know what she wanted), and then complained that 4 days later he was in a relationship with someone else. She was posting about how depressed she was about it, meanwhile I'm sitting here like you literally just gave me the same exact treatment a week before that. I told her thats how I felt when she did that to me, and she promptly removes me from snapchat. Karma is a bitch but it sucks to see everyone treating each other in such a disposable manner thanks to dating apps. We're all out here treating each other like disposable garbage and it adds to the feeling of loneliness that a lot of people have.

My loneliness comes from the fact that I want to have fun with my friends but I have no interest in having a relationship with another person right now. But whenever I am called to go out with someone, at least one person from the group attempts to approach me in that way. To avoid having to give a no to the person during a party or something, I'd rather make up an excuse and not go. I like to go out to have fun, not to look for a relationship, but in my country this is implicit, if someone comes to you, and you refuse without having reason, you are called of several things and people easily starts to hate you, this is fucking crazy.

Great, now I'm paranoid that the only reason someone randomly contacted me yesterday was because of this video. Was real easy to connect the dots when I saw that mentioned at the end. Look, it's cool that someone cares enough to I guess do that if so but at the same time, I don't want to be part of some social trend. I would rather they contact me without some video telling them they need to do this and spread this, etc. I don't expect the worse of people but at the same time, I don't trust anybody. I hope for the best and think most people do have good intentions. But I'm usually proven right with how others act way too often to let my guard down easy. And GAD just complicates everything more. A lot of the time, I'm too distracted by something to feel that state of loneliness. It only comes in waves and it always passes.

I like this video. I like the unique perspective. Just so you know, much of what was speculated here (particularly about the past) was based on the theory of evolution. Not a bad thing, just that I don't want this speculation to be fact when it's based on theory. I like and respect you Kurzgesagt.

People that are commenting about being depressed in the comments stfu, being lonely and having nobody at all and at the brink of killing yourself is different. So stfu and if you are able to comment and have a phone be thankful and be happy. If you do have issues like depspression talk to your parents or a guardian for help.
