Loneliness constricts the heart.
Social media: is it really to blame for young people being lonelier than any other age group?
Loneliness cripples the body and the mind and the soul. Loneliness is unconscious and numb. Loneliness is endless tears for change — any change that will tell you that you are alive.
Because loneliness is dying at every moment; loneliness is death. Loneliness — flee from it. Flee from it always.

Young people are lonelier than all other age groups, according to recent findings from the BBC Loneliness Experiment. This trend for high youth loneliness has also been captured in other national surveys by the Office for National Statistics in and the Eden Project in Loneliness is typically associated with older generations, who may live alone or be less capable of getting out and about.
But young people can experience loneliness despite having friends, being surrounded by people at school or having supportive parents. This indicates that youth loneliness is more about finding it difficult to connect with other people, as opposed to being alone. There are more opportunities today to connect with others than ever before: social media, instant messaging and even online gaming all allow people to share messages and experiences without being in the same place at the same time. But research has shown that high use of the internet is linked to loneliness, social anxiety and depression.
Young people are the highest users of social media, and some have raised concerns about the impact that might be having on their mental health. For instance, in her book Alone Together , MIT psychologist Sherry Turkle has argued that people are beginning to favour communicating with others using new technologies over speaking face to face.
She argues that online communication lacks intimacy, and though we might feel we are constantly connected or in the loop, it actually leaves us feeling alone. When my colleagues at the University of Chicago and I conducted a review of the research linking loneliness to internet use, we found that using the internet socially can lead to both increases and decreases in loneliness — depending on how it is used.
