Many people value solitude, and having time to themselves.

For others though, loneliness can be a crippling feeling.

Having no one to talk to or spend time with can get wearying after an extended amount of time.

Something many people know more than ever after the global pandemic hit in spring of 2020.

But while some people simply succumb to being lonely, others will find ways to help them cope with, if not completely forget, being all alone.

Redditor No_Blackberry_6286 was curious to hear the different ways people have of coping with their loneliness, leading them to ask:

"Reddit, how do you cope with loneliness?"


Make the most with what makes you happy

"I've learned to enjoy my own company and focus on my hobbies."

"Funny enough, this gives me stuff to talk about when I am around people."

Voices in the background

"Listening to people talk on YouTube so I feel less alone in my house."

Millions of friends, just one click away.

"Chat with random people on Reddit."

Hit the snooze button

"Sleep 12+ hours a day."- RockandRoll682

Instant tension and relief

"Lots of arguing online about sh*t I don't care about at all, just to have some form of social interaction, and get off at least 3 times a day."-

There are very few worse feelings than that of being alone.

But it's also quite remarkable how much doing something that makes you happy, be it ever so simple, can elevate your feelings.

Finding the right pajamas can be a fairly stressful ordeal.

Which is perhaps why some people choose to forgo pajamas all together, and sleep in the nude.

No doubt saving people hundreds of dollars on what they might otherwise have spent on a pair of pajamas.

But in addition to being economical, people no doubt have countless reasons for their natural choice of sleepwear.

Or lack thereof.

Redditor -TheMidpoint- was curious to hear why people opted to sleep in the buff, leading them to ask:

"People who sleep naked, why?"

People Explain Which Illegal Activities Everyone Does Openly Without Consequences

Unpaid internships during summer's off from college are largely viewed as a right of passage.

But in most cases, they weren't exactly legal.

For-profit companies can, in fact, only hire unpaid interns if they are the "primary beneficiary" of the experience, i.e. not making coffee runs or spending the whole day at the copy machine, as most interns do.

Shockingly, many companies still continue to hire unpaid interns, knowing full well they are breaking the law by doing so.

But then, some people have no problem knowingly breaking the law, and worse still, they often get away with it.

Redditor Diligent-Log6805 was curious to learn about other illegal activities continue to happen without anyone seeming to notice, leading them to ask:

"What is illegal, but people continue to do openly without consequences?

Among the biggest casualties as a result of the global pandemic are ongoing supply chain issues, which has resulted in a number of items costing considerably more than they once did.

As a result, a coffee and pastry will likely go for $12 or more.

But even before the pandemic first hit in March of 2020, the cost of various things still proved to be a major point of contention, namely at how overpriced they were.

These could be things which might seem frivolous in the grand scheme of things, such as a Caribbean vacation, or things which were literally life or death, such as healthcare.

Redditor madmart07 was curious to hear the things the Reddit community were worth far less than their asking price, leading them to ask:

"What should be at least 5x cheaper than it is?"
