How is it possible to be in a room full of people and feel so alone?

    I don't know, but it's possible if your heart is empty.

    It is not possible literally, but Subconciously !! It's your subconcious mind who makes you feel alone even when you are with dozens of other people..... This might happen when you are sad, depressed, lonely, or sometimes extremely Happy.... !!

    Some people love to be alone even when they are surrounded by lots of people. they are "loner". But some people are naturally very sad and depressed. and they feel they can not share their feelings with others. So it creates a loneliness in their mind.

    I believe sometimes we just are not in the mood to be around other people or we have things on our mind that keep us from feeling positive and outgoing. There are other times when we actually feel as though we simply do not have anything in common with those around us. In either scenario you are likely to wonder why you are there. In times like this I usually make a cameo appearence and then go meet my friends or participate in some other activity I really enjoy.

    Because "alone" is on the inside of us.  And you are NOT alone in that feeling.  It doesn't matter what is surrounding us externally, we can still feel alone.

    One way to address that feeling is to ask yourself what you lack in your life.  If you desire it enough, think about what you can do to draw that into your life.  Sometimes that is putting yourself in a room full of people, even if you don't feel like it.  Because . . . who knows who might be there, and be drawn to YOU.  Who knows where it will lead???

    Not only a room, but a whole country.  I was stationed in Germany in 1978-1979.  Soon after I arrived, I went on a bus trip to Frankfurt from Heidelberg.  Didn't speak the language or know money much.  It was freezing cold.  I went into a bakery and ordered hot tea and one pastry.  I thought I had enough money.  The waitress brought me the items and I paid what I thought was right.  She spoke to me in German, and I didn't have a clue.  I was thoroughly embarrassed and in pain since I didn't want to be there in the first place.  I suffered culture shock very badly. I put all my money down and got up and left everything there and went back out into the freezing cold country--all alone.
    The aloneness comes from being removed from friends and family for the most part.  If friends and family are in the room and you feel alone, it could be because you are momentarily separated emotional.  Real or imagined, you don't feel there's anyone you can reach out to.  If alone and frightened, you may feel there's no escape. I believe this happens to most people at one time or another.  A bride standing at the alter to be married in front of family and friends can feel alone at one of the most important moments in her life.

    This can happen when you realize you don't fit in with those people at all.
