7 signs someone is secretly lonely in life, according to psychology

The bereaved old lady at the end of the street transforms into a gnarled old witch out to devour small children. 

We tell the kids before bedtime that the lithe man who lives in the forest feeds on stray cats and mischievous children.

However, we frequently fail to distinguish between those who choose isolation and solitude and those who suffer from loneliness in secret.

Let's be honest: we've all used it at some point!The key difference is that if someone is consistently "too busy" to hang out, meet up, or even simply chat, it could be a sign of something more serious brewing.

1) They’re always “busy”

The most lonely people are those who spend their days online, tapping away at illuminated screens and sharing/forwarding/liking every online gesture that comes their way.

2) Overly social online (yet silent IRL)

The first person to offer assistance is frequently someone whose heartstrings are sore and raw from a lack of human connection.

3) Quick to lend a helping hand

Ever tossed and turned in bed, unable to sleep? A bad night could be more than that. Studies have linked chronic loneliness to sleep disturbances. Because loneliness increases stress and anxiety, it can disrupt sleep patterns. Yes, a vicious cycle.

4) Insomnia and sleep issue

5) Hoarding (in the form of shopping, snacks, or other possessions)

6) Stuck in the past

Chronic loneliness can cause heart disease, depression, and immune system weakness.

7) Unexplained health issues
