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.


We are in a fragile place right now when it comes to bringing children into this world.

Not everybody is meant to be a parent.

In fact, many people should never be one.

So I find it commendable how many of us acknowledge that and chose not to procreate.

Redditorucinangel wanted to everyone to vent about why children are a "no thank you" in their book of life. They asked:

"What is the biggest reasons why you don’t want children?"

The world is full of crazy people.

It feels like that more and more as I meander in my local shopping center.

But a little crazy I can deal with.

I want to discuss the people who leave an imprint of fear.

The people who lack empathy, remorse... and a soul.

You met many of those?

Redditor playmesomethinnice wanted to see who would fess up and discuss the person or persons that leave us shook.They asked:

"What type of people are you scared of?"

There are just some people who need a good, spiteful talking to.

The amount of poor behavior I witness on the daily is astonishing.

How are we like this in these modern times?

Instead of serving shame, we're serving justice for improper deeds.

Be a better human.

Redditor ValenFrost wanted to share what people need a little bit of bad spotlight. They asked:

"What do you think people actually deserve to be shamed for?"
