Dunno about main cause for me but it doesn't help. Feeling unwell can add to feeling lonely too.

It seems like it can work both ways: depression can be caused by loneliness, and loneliness can be caused by depression. For me, it's that loneliness is caused by depression.

For me, loneliness, or being alone all the time, means no emotional support - and that can lead to depression, yes. But finding the right people to be in my life is a challenge. SO, until then I have to be my own support system. But yes, I do think loneliness can lead to depression. For some people.

Anyone here have loneliness as main cause of their depression ?

One of the loneliest periods of my life was when I had three roommates. As I couldn't relate to anyone and there was constant tension.

I chose to be alone because people mistreat me, because I don't find the right people and the right person I can trust and have close relationship with. But does not mean I don't feel lonely. I do feel lonely. But what keep me going is I have resources out side my comfort zone I can go hangout and socialize with group of people when I need to.

Yes depression can me you lonely because you stay alone you don't trust anybody you afraid of be judged to get close to someone or some people because you have mental illness, you decide to stay alone and that leads to loneliness. You are not alone there's many people in this world feel the same way we are feeling.

Yes. This is me.

Its not that easy to form friendships and or relationships with people. It takes a lot of time, patience and sometimes rejection unfortunately. That is why I am lonely.
