Also that bit about being lonely when you’re surrounded by people. A child in a class of 30 children, with parents & siblings, but can feel totally alone.

Also interested in this idea that loneliness may come from this western tension of conflicting values of needing to be the same and needing to be different. How does social identity of minority groups who are already othered/differentiated fit?

What was v briefly but not massively touched on was the role of austerity in loneliness in removing spaces where young ppl might have gone.

Hasan, a young person, told us that he asked on instagram is people felt the same can they reply. If they are watching, can they reply. 100 people watched and he got 30 replies from people feeling the same. Feeling lonely
