The Difference Between Loneliness and Isolation (and Why It Matters)

We often use the terms interchangeably. Here’s why we need to know the difference.

“Social isolation is a lack of social connections. This could be due to quarantine, living in a remote area, living alone, or any number of other factors that might prevent a person from having a network of people to rely on and confide in.

Loneliness, on the other hand, is the feeling of being socially isolated, which isn’t necessarily the same. A person can have a lot of social connections with others and still feel lonely, while a socially isolated person might have only a few close social connections, but not feel lonely.”
