Have you ever felt completely alone, while being in a room full of people? If so you are not alone, it happens to a lot of us and the feeling can be beaten.

You are not alone

A lot of people who suffer from depression and anxiety get the feeling of being "alone" in the world even when surrounded be people.

I can vouch for this feeling first hand, as during my personal battles with depression I have felt very alone, even when in the company of friends and family. This feeling of being alone is one of the oddest sensations, your heart sinks and you just feel that no one is noticing you, caring about your life or feelings, they are all going about their business and leaving you out. It's a horrible feeling, but it can be over come, honestly it can.

Like I said, I have had my own share of depression issues and also a very serious anxiety problem, I went though a stage when going out would send me into a major panic attack, but I kept going regardless of the feeling because I did not want to restrict what my family could go and do.

During the deepest parts of my depression, I would often sit in the office or at home, surrounded by activity feeling very alone. There was no real reason that I felt alone, it just felt that no one else cared, or wanted me around. Sounds kind of silly now I think about it, but there is no escaping that these feelings were very real at the time.

Although I still get the odd moment of feeling alone, thankfully this is now a thing of the past for me now and I want let people know that they are not alone, depression and feelings of being unloved, unwanted and alone can be over come, they really can. My personal journey out of depression has been a long and tough one but I have made it and I am now rebuilding my life and as I rebuild my life I am trying to reach out to others who need help tackling depression and showing them that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and they can indeed live a fabulous life. You are not alone, talk to those who love you, they will help and you can defeat that lonely feeling, believe me you can. Get out into nature, feel the sunshine on your skin and exercise your body, it will give you a lift and will help you on the road to recovery.

For me my recovery really took off when I sold my car and took the decision to cycle the twenty miles a day to work and back, as I cycle I listen to self help books and as a result I have more energy, my depression has lifted and I nearly always have a smile on my face. Yes it was an extreme move to sell the car and move to the bike, but it has changed my life and the risk was worth all the pain of cycling on those cold winter mornings.

Another great tip is to stop watching or reading the news, sadly the media promotes all the bad things happening in the world and this is very depressing. Avoiding the papers or the daily news shows will help lift your spirits and help you rise out of depression.

Most importantly always remember YOU are not alone, there are lots of people and communities who can help YOU, reach out to them and accept their help, YOU have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
