“Traumatic Loneliness” is a personal struggle closely associated with a history of trauma, where individuals learn that it is dangerous or difficult to connect with others or that they cannot trust their own choices. This results in an increasing feeling that you don’t fit in anywhere or that you are always left to manage your own needs or concerns with little or no support. We are a social species and when we cannot connect in meaningful ways with others, our sense of isolation and emotional strain increases.
