Are you feeling alone lately? Do you feel isolated from everyone else? Even though the feelings of loneliness and being alone are different, they could mean the same thing. In the context of this video, you feel alone when you feel you have no one you can depend on. For example, living alone, or not having any friends. However, you might not be as alone as you think! Sometimes, the feelings of loneliness is only when we don’t realize what we already have.
