Friends make life good. They provide the scaffolding that makes it not just bearable but fun. They give us a sense of meaning and purpose and are a source of security, self esteem and happiness. Almost nothing predicts how happy you will be as how connected you feel and a lack of social connection is associated with a number of diseases and a shorter life.

But maybe you have scrolled through your phone, unsure who to call to go to a movie with, to celebrate with or ask for comfort. You may realize that you don’t have enough friends and feel lonely. And it is not just you. Disconnectedness and loneliness are widespread.

Many people want more close friends but don’t know how to get them.

  2. Ever since I quit FaceBook my friend groups IRL have vanished slowly. Then the Pandemic hit. Then God laughed and I went on HRT. It’s rough out there but the thing I learned the hard way was to be OK with yourself and you’re never lonely.

  3. I just thought it was memes

    FML I’m so lonely
    10 years ago I used to be so extroverted and popular.
    How life changes drastically.

  5. Man, I felt this.

    I had a pretty bad falling out with a friend 2 years ago. About a month ago I tried reaching out to them to try and reconnect and repair what we had, but to no avail (no idea if my message was intentionally ignored or missed completely).

    But that’s life, you know. You can’t get too stuck on things like that.

  6. Man, this vid hit pretty hard, having an avoidant personality disorder is an added loneliness bonus, …great 😅 Thank you for the vid though, I’m 41 now and things only seem to get harder, so I needed some of this advice! 🙂

  7. My problem is I have too many friends 😔 it’s stressful making time for them all
    You all wouldn’t understand how hard this is for me 😖

  8. Introverts can only be comfortable around their family and be their true selves, but they shell themselves out from 90% of new people/people they don’t know. People should understand at some point, their so-called family might not be there for them anymore either through death/distance. From that point onwards no one would be there for them, it’s as if they lost themselves/(true identity) just like a walking corpse suffering through the vines of life until their lonely demise…

  9. Share a passion in weir moves…. sounds like a jojo reference 😆
