Some say you only feel loneliness when you are all alone.
This is not entirely true.
Yes, you can feel lonely when you are in a room by yourself, or when you are at a party but don't know anyone there, so you are sitting alone in the corner.
But I feel the most alone when I am in a group of people who I have know my whole life, but they don't really know me.
Or maybe they do, but they don't really see me.
I may be sitting on the same couch with five friends and my family, but I feel completely alone.
Because sure, maybe these people like me, but we all know none of them respect or love me.
And that is the loneliest feeling in the world.
A room of people you've known since birth, but none of them actually want you there.
