The Young Scot Youth Loneliness Panel share some of their favourite inspirational quotes about feeling lonely.
When you feel like you’re alone…
Even though you may feel like you are alone, there is always someone who can support you.
When you feel unmotivated…
You have got this!
When you feel like you’re the only one…
There may also be others who feel the same so while you feel alone there are others who are feeling the same.
When you feel like it will always be this way…
This feeling will pass and things will get better, this feeling of loneliness is temporary.
