The Last Time I Felt Lonely Was

Tell me the story of the time you felt the most lonely.

Loneliness is human and that’s okay.

At The Loneliness Project, we believe that stories have power—the power to heal both listener and teller, and to show us that we aren’t ever truly alone. Stories are powerful tools for building empathy and growing kindness. Those shared here are deeply personal yet profoundly universal. They reveal something about being human.

The Loneliness Project is the first chapter of An Imperfect Archive of Us, a digital space to cultivate compassion—for others, but especially for ourselves. Become part of our community by sharing your story here.

Sign up below for weekly stories about life, loneliness, and the parts of ourselves that we hide from others.
