What does it feel like to be old and alone?
Millions Of Us Feel Lonely – But We Won’t Admit It To Family Or Friends
A study shows we're affected by loneliness almost daily
Loneliness – real loneliness – can be the most all-consuming, horrible, scary experience in the world. Yet according to a new study, two thirds of us wouldn’t tell family or friends if we ourselves felt lonely.
In a survey conducted by Co-op, 2,000 adults of varying ages were asked about loneliness. One in 10 said that feeling lonely affected them daily, while two thirds said they’d never ask for company due to the stigma of loneliness.
The research by Co-op, which has launched a campaign to tackle the issue of loneliness in partnership with the British Red Cross, also found that people were more likely to spot loneliness in others than themselves, bringing up important questions about why we want to hide our loneliness.
Could it be that the more connected we get, with Facebook, email, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Whatsapp and everything else, the more lonely we get?
Perhaps the constant social media updates we get of everyone else out having fun, going on holiday and getting promotions makes us more likely to question our own achievements and feel more lonely in the process.
