You don't have to be 22 in order to feel happy, free, confused, and lonely at the same time. Loneliness can strike at the most unexpected moments, and even if you enjoy your own company, it's natural to long for companionship. Humans are social creatures, after all, so there's no shame in feeling lonesome. The zodiac signs who feel lonely most often might surprise you, because they're not the social butterflies of the zodiac — they're the signs who actually like to be on their own, but only up to a certain point.
As clinical psychologist Michael Alcee, PhD, previously told Elite Daily, understanding why you feel lonely can help you determine what's missing in your life. "Loneliness can be an important sign that we need to reconnect externally or internally, so try to locate what you need," he said. He pointed out that feeling isolated isn't always solved by finding a romantic partner or surrounding yourself with friends. He suggested asking yourself, "Do I need more social time to get that energy going again, or do I need to take the time to go inward?" Loneliness is inevitable for these complex zodiac signs, but luckily, they're also the signs best able to deal with those feelings.
